How do I know the difference between Burn in and IR?

I've got a beautiful HUD from Destiny on PS4 showing on light screens in the bottom left of my Panasonic TCP60VT60.

It's covered by my extended warranty but I'd prefer if I could just get it out as I love this TV and there's nothing on the market that looks worthwhile replacing it with with the exchange I'll get.

If the warranty is through panny, personally, if check with them regarding what you'd get. Don't know the fine print so I'd be careful with what details are given. Don't know about what would happen with your warranty if something is reported but you decline.

Anyway, you never know what's tucked away in the warehouse. You could end up with a zt60 for paying a couple hundred bucks, or free if no vt60's are around, or a brand new vt60, or or a new vt60 panel swapped in for yours, etc.

As to your question, your set just has IR, characterized by the HUD only being v visible on light screens. IR goes away, burn in doesn't. Of you had burn in that HUD would be jumping out at you all the time, regardless of what your watching. Also, with today's tech, it's practically impossible to j get to burn in. You'd need a static image that was VERY likely to cause IR quickly and leave it on for days if not weeks, and this is after defeating the sets protections of turning off or going to a screensaver after X minutes, same with the turning off after Y minutes of not receiving a command, the pixel orbiter's, etc.

Basically you need to actively TRY to get burn in to actually have a chance of getting it.

Beyond trying to get ZT from the warehouse like I talked about above, running a pixel flipper like what is found on the Disney wow disk or what a member here created, or tossing up a 80-90-100 ire greyscale calibration screen (your choice on the IRE level, and this method came straight from the ISF when I took the calibration class ~2006, before pixel flippers) and the IR should fade away to unnoticeable pretty quickly.

May want to save the warranty until it's almost up because who knows what you'd get then. Same reasoning is used to go for the warranty now because I'm sure there is stuff in the warehouse just for these circumstances.

Steve

Setting up a USED Panansonic 65ZT60, WOW Disc, Calibration etc

Ok, couple of questions, I will be hopefully buying a used 65ZT60 in the coming weeks.

About the TV: The set has about 3800hrs~(pic was sent to me), it was a display model. The sales manger was very sincere in helping me answer questions, the location of the tv in the store was not in hands reach where customers could touch the TV (he sent me pics, on a shelf higher up), he explained they never get the same image on the screens, was running normal TV content and rotating the channels.(non-stationary content).

Here are my questions:
1. Should I leave it off for a couple of days? (since its been on in the store for some time)

2. Should I run color slides to maybe reset the plasma cells to get them all even again? (not sure if that makes sense)

3. And what is the WOW disc from Disney? (would that be important?)

4. Basically what I am asking if I can do a "TUNE UP" to the TV as you would do to a car.(change oil, change the brakes, lubricate etc)

5.And I also would be getting the 1 year warranty from Panasonic. (anything to know about this?

6. Can I still get this TV professionally calibrated?

7. Any other suggestions? I will use this TV mostly for movies and sports, minor gaming on Xbox.

Thanks for the help and suggestions.

Are you buying it without personally inspecting it? I would say the odds of the television having IR and/or potentially permanent burn in are close to 100%. Based upon my experience, IR does not show up very well in photographs. Is this one of the ABC Warehouse display sets?

So I'm basically really happy with my Samsung F5300 50" PDP, but after reading certain forum comments I've become a bit worried about IR/burn in again. I've been using it pretty normally for months now, running the screen wipe if there's any temporary IR. All IR goes away pretty quickly with either that or Disney's pixel flipper (I could faintly see the PS3s "pause" icon for awhile so I ran it).

I saw a thread online that stated that burn-in is cumulative, in response to someone who had watched a channel with a logo, not for hours at a time necessarily, but fairly regularly for a number of years, and said he had a logo burned in. Is that true?

Does this mean it's inevitable? Will I eventually have the pause button icon burned in? The 4:3 frame, the black bars from Scope movies?

Panasonic apparently recommends that only 20% (or some number) of your viewing be non-16:9. Samsung's manual says only 5%!

Surely one isn't expected to simply watch TV on a plasma - shows and the odd movie in 1.78:1. Who would buy the TV technology with the best PQ for just that? I mean, I'd expect a plasma to be a movie fan's pick, if anything. I chose a plasma because I'm a big movie fan and want to watch them in the best quality I can at home. That means black bars, and lots of them. Half the movies I watch are 2.35:1 with larger black bars, most of the rest 1.85:1 with smaller, and there are too many great older shows at 1.33:1 to not watch. I don't know if just running screen wipe or viewing full screen content after a movie is enough - it makes the imprint of the bars disappear, but will they eventually show permanently, having been aged less? I do try to watch fullscreen stuff if I feel I've had too many black bars on lately, but it seems kinda nutty to be consciousy worrying about this ratio hundreds of hours into the TV's life.

It just seems that there's so much conflicting info out there.

Thanks for any information.

At this point there is nothing color slides will do but expose any IR issues you may have. If you have IR, you can run the WoW pixel flipper for a few days to reduce it or just run full screen logo free programming for the same amount of time. And yes, if I were you, I would have the panel professionally calibrated.

You can just watch as much full screen logo free content as possible and it should clear up on its own.

I think your panel will likely be ok. You can always run the screen wipe or Disney WoW pixel flipper after a heavy movie day.

If you think you have burn-in use as much full screen content as possible or run the Disney WoW pixel flipper over night. If the IR is less, it is not burn in and you can continue with the pixel flipper or full screen content until it clears.

Sure you can expand you screen to fill the entire screen w/o logos. You can order the Disney WoW bluray at Amazon. I don't recall which setting overscans the screen but its something you can see right away. Good luck and enjoy your panel.

I got the same thing from playing Destiny!!!! In total I have logged about 36 hours on the game in the past month but have probably watched other content equal to it at a 2:1 ratio. In a typical play session I will play about 2 hours at a time although there will be loading screens in between matches. See the pic below as to an example of the Destiny Heads up display. On solid light colored screens i see a dark horizontal bar (almost like a shadow) right where that yellow meter is on the bottom left. Since I noticed it I have played full screen content amounting to at least 15 hours and have played the Disney Wow pixel flipper for at least 3 hours as well as running the ZT60 screen wipe for 1-2 hours. The bar is less pronounced but I still see it. I have not had a HUD issue in any other game but for some reason this really stands out. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that you cannot turn off the HUD in the game.

I'm very hesitant about playing the game in the future and can't believe how much I have to baby the ZT60 relative to an older panny plasma and Kuro set that I have. I'm almost wondering if I should just get the IR even more pronounced, call up best buy and use my protection plan and use a credit for a UHD set so I just don't have to worry about IR issues (I've been very resistant to the thought of switching to LCD/LED due to motion/black levels/viewing angles). Thoughts?

Have you calibrated your panel? Proper calibration can help reduce stubborn IR in the future. Continuing with the pixel flipper and full screen content is your best bet to help get rid of the IR. I game on my ST50 regularly and it accounts for 15%-20% of my panel’s usage. I do watch a lot of full screen content and I think that helps. I also let me panel warm up for 30-60 minutes before any gaming. Good Luck.
