Hello,
I have a new Samsung 55 inch LED.
I noticed this morning, that the TV was left on overnight Without any signal. Black screen all night.
Would this do any damage to the TV, picture, wear.. Leaving it on a black screen overnight?

Thx for your help..

I leave my 27" lcd computer monitor on 24/7, usually with a fixed image and there is no problem at all. It's one of the advantages of LCD. Now if you were to do that with a plasma, that's a different story.

A perfect demonstration of the risks of plasma.Things like this can happen, and a plasma could have some serious issues after that, especially if it was a static image and not just a blank screen. An LCD - no problem.

Many sets now do have a feature though that will shut off the set if it's left on a single image or no signal for a certain length of time.
