Are Samsung LED TVs prone to image retention?

Last modified : Mar 14. 2018

While less susceptible than Plasma TVs, LED TVs are still subject to image retention. 

Generally, you should avoid keeping a static picture (one with few to no moving elements) or a picture with static elements (black bars, black borders, logos etc.) on your TV for more than two hours at a time. That applies if you use your LED TV as a computer monitor or for playing video games. 

Please note: Image rentention damage is not covered under express warranty.
