OK...I'm tired of seeing people (including salesmen) say that LCDs have "NO" burn in.
I have a Dell 24" LCD monitor and it DOES exhibit burn-in from the static icons on the desktop. I have noticed it with static window tool bars also. It is not all of the time and I haven't noticed it for a while. But it has happened to me in the past and it is very noticeable and annoying when it happens.
However, I can usually clear the screen with a program that switches the monitor back and forth from an all black screen to an all white screen, left running for a while.
No, it is not anything close to burn in on my plasma, but it is there and can be "cleaned" or cleared away.
It may be greater if you have the back light turned up all the way.
So if it can happen with a computer monitor, can't it also happen when the XBR (or any LCDTV) is hooked up to a computer or if the points and status bar of a game is left on screen overnight? (i.e. I fell asleep while playing....)
I don't want to divert too far from the topic of XBRs, but I'm curious if anyone else has seen this since I am buying the 40XBR5 and will use it hooked up to my computer and used for PS3.
Has anyone else noticed this on an LCD display or am I the only one?
Could it have just been my graphics driver not refreshing the screen enough?
Thanks in advance.
