Does it work to break the plasma in with a snowy tv picture?

Yes. But you also can do the break in with normal tv watching as long you fill the picture to the edges and avoid static images and objects(logos and such). No need to not using the tv during the brake in. smile.gif

Most people either break it in with normal viewing or with break-in slides. I have never heard of using a snowy picture.

Tuning to a non-existent analog channel will produce a good random snow like a pixel flipper.
But you have to in setup make sure that the set won't turn off automatically with no input after a short time to let it run for more than a few minutes.
Its not as fast an aging method as a full white screen slides however.

Just watch a lot of full screen content and keep your contract and brightness at reasonable levels. If you are watching sports tickers or a lot of letter box programming and your not watching any full screen content afterword, you may want to run a snowy screen for at least 30 minutes when you are finished, to help clean up any residual IR. Worked for me, and my screen is squeaky clean.

The only reason to "break in" a Tv is if you are going to have it calibrated. If not you accomplish absolutely nothing.

No, there may be some aging but it's not uniform

Using the D-Nice procedure with the "slides" ensures that EACH pixel is 'exercised' with the exact same intensity level. The "slides" are JPG format, 1920 x 1080 pixels. This EXACTLY matches the pixels in your panel. So every pixel is 'stressed' equally.

Video has a pseudo-random noise format that can not stress each pixel equally.

If you want to age your Panny, use the slides.
