I've been told that a plasma can be calibrated without a 100 hour break in. Is this true?

Greetings

Good to make sure the TV is not a lemon.

But I have calibrated sets minutes out of the box and returned 6 months later to find little drift.

maynerd,

Michael is correct. In general, we recommend a break-in period to be sure that the display is not defective, but it does not have to be 100 hours on these newer displays.

Best,

Dave

How about the recommendation that's out there to run a new plasma for a couple hundred hours with a full-field white pattern (lowered contrast)to 'season' the phosphors? This is supposed to reduce the likelihood of image retention and phosphor 'burn.'

That is also a recommendation as burn in is more likely in the first 200 to 500 hours if one is not careful.

I actually used a "break in DVD" that displayed full screen of solid colors that rotate in and out every few minutes on low contrast. Don't know if it was required, but recommended was "good enough" for me!
