Samsung Plasma PN43E450. The picture looks best on "Movie Mode." Standard is too dark, and while I know these are supposed to be calibrated, Movie Mode is easy to use, just only slightly too bright or too gamma. I don't know for sure. If I keep the TV on movie mode, will that harm the tv (it's new)? Blow something up? Ruin it? Cause IR?

Thanks for help. I did use search with google site search.

Movie mode has been know to cause the premature fusing of the flux capacitor to the main picture processor. Use it with extreme caution.

Greetings

If you turn off the TV, you will do no harm. Also won't have a picture.

Like afraid to use the car because it will wear out the tires.

Do you want to enjoy it or would you rather it last 1000 years?

regards

Movie mode may be the easiest on the TV.

If you want it to be easier on the TV turn the contrast down.


The higher contrast is, the more likely you'll get some image retention. Image retention isn't that big a deal, burn it can happen as well, but then only when you notice image retention and just keep going.

If you bought the thing to play Halo 4 on, you bought the wrong TV, go get an LCD.

My kid has an lcd. This one looks better, much better. I'm sure he could get a higher quality lcd. Why wouldn't I want to play halo on it? I think contrast is 100.

Those other responses are funny, btw. I deserve it smile.gif.

Playing Halo or any other game with a persistent HUD with contrast at 100 on a plasma is a bad idea.

If you're a gamer owning a plasma is a bad idea, you'll simply always have to worry about burnin

On Samsungs, movie mode seems to be the most accurate right out of the box. Like the others said, the plasma might not be a good idea for gaming, but if you're just watching TV and movies, you should be fine.
