:nono2: Anyone else have their HD Projection TV's ruined because of all the stupid tickers and banners and graphics the stupid stations put on that burns into your screen? I'm a news junkie and they all have the ticker running with stupid news. I wish they could be made to pay for fixing my set because they never warn people it would occur.

I would check the owner's manual to your TV. I'm sure it provides a warning to "burn in" if your display technology can be affected by it.

I have one DLP and one LCD rear projection - No burn in.

I have one LCD flat panel - No burn in.

I frequently leave them on pause sometimes for up to an hour even with the 4:3 aspect with black bars on either side - No burn in.

What kind of projection TV do you have ret26?

I thought that pertained to video games or pausing a vcr or dvd with the set on. Who knew you couldnt watch TV with it happening. Especially with everything you watch having some sort of graphic showing.

None of these displays have burn in. an LCD could have a 'retained pixel charge', but it's not really burn in.

A rear-projection CRT display can have burn in though. Plasmas can also have burn in, allthough they are getting better at avoiding burn in.

That's a CRT device. you can get burn in on any station that shows the same graphic over and over (such as a ticker or the channel logo). Many channels changed their logos to a 'ghost' logo which won't burn in as bad, or be as noticable
