How do I avoid image retention on my Samsung 55" Q6F 4K Smart QLED TV (QN55Q6FAMF)?

Last Update Date : May 10. 2018

Image retention

Unlike Plasma TVs, LED TVs are not subject to screen burn in. But a LED screen may still suffer from image retention when a static or semi-static image is displayed on the screen for too long. Follow our advices to avoid this common issue.

Note: The provided information refers to Smart QLED TVs sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ for devices sold in other countries.

Still image warning

Avoid displaying still images (such as jpeg picture files), still image elements (such as TV channel logos, stock or news crawls at the screen bottom etc.). Limit displaying programs in panorama or 4:3 image format on the screen. If you constantly display still pictures, it can cause image retention on the LED screen and affect image quality.

• Avoid displaying the same TV channel for long periods.

 

• Always try to display any image in full screen. Use the picture format menu of the TV for the best possible match.

 

• Reduce brightness and contrast to avoid the appearance of after-images.

 

• Use all TV features designed to reduce image retention and screen burn.
