What are the Screen Burn Protection settings available in Samsung Plasma TVs?

Last Update Date : Jul 27. 2018
 

When the plasma technology first appeared in the market, the panels had an issue with "Screen Burn-in" or image retention. To rectify this problem Samsung added software in the TV to limit the exposure time on an individual pixel, which is essentially the cause of "Screen Burn-in".

 

The functions and capabilities of the added features are listed below, depending on your Plasma TV model you will have some or all of these functions :

 

Pixel Shift : This function actually moves a pixel of the image over and up based on the value you select when using this option. The optimal setting is 4 pixels, horizonatly and vertically, every 4 minutes.

 

. 

 

Auto Protection Time : This option allows you to control when your TV activate the screen saver after a static/idle image has been on the screen for the time that you specify.

 

. 

 

Scrolling : This is an erase-all function on the panel. If for any reason your have any after-images or are experiencing an after image, this is the first option to try. It displays alternating bars of black and white to bring the pixels back to the baseline.

 

. 

 

Side Gray : This alters colors of the letterbox from the 4:3 screen format by adjusting the white balance on the side-bars. This is useful to prevent 4:3 letterbox image retention. Even though this function helps prevent letterbox image retention, 4:3 should not be used for more than 5% of the viewing time on the TV.
