Assassin's Creed Revelations image burn

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Assassin's Creed Revelations caused image burn on my Panasonic VT-25. The darn health bar stays completely static and burned my TV. I played for a few hours and since Ubisoft didn't do anything with shifting the health meter it just sits there. I am very angry. I figured I would make mention to warn the other plasma users.

Scary. Just started with this game myself. Doesn´t the VT25 has it´s own pixel shifting function? Hope it go away with screen wash. I don´t trust my samsung plasmas either.

Are you sure it's burnt ? Or is it just image retention ?
After a few days of normal program viewing that should be ok ...
To prevent image retention, do not use vivid mode and don't set contrast and luminosity to the max.

Got to be honest its very unlikely to be burn in. I have been on a serious Assassin's Creed kick since October. I have played and won the first 3 AC games and am now on Revelatons which I got for Christmas. I am playing it on a 58VT25. Just as you stated the health meter sometimes leaves a bit of IR. But it's never permanent. I have about 10 hours into Revelatons now. I use GAME mode on the VT25 with contrast at about 68 and brightness at 50. Watch some full screen TV for awhile and it will fade or disappear all together.. You can also turn that health meter off, but i don't bother doing that for obvious reasons.

It can't be burn-in after only two hours - it's temporary image retention and will go away.

Do you see the HUD when watching programming with lighter colored backrounds? Or do you only see it with a black/no-input screen or after you turn the TV off?

With all due respect i think this is most likely a case where the OP had never seen IR before and once he did panicked. Got two of the 2010 Panasonic plasmas and have been gaming reasonably on both since their purchase and I can put a slide of green or white or any color and don't see a hint of IR. Now I have seen IR on both in the past but as I stated above its never permanent. I find the G25 far worse for IR then the VT25. When I say I game "reasonably" it means I rarely have a gaming session that exceeds 3 hours.

Mixing up the programming is the key to these TV's.

ive played 6 hours straight of revelations multiplayer. 0 Burn in

just whitewash after long gaming etc

make sure pixel shift is on. NO DYNAMIC SETTING. I dont mean dynamic contrast but done use the VIVID setting for gaming

I certainly hope you guys are right and it is just some image retention. I am familiar with image retention and see that all the time. Unfortunately, the image is still there. I have run the scroll bar a bunch of times now.

I run the TV in THX mode only and the pixel orbiter is set to automatic.

Someone mentioned whether I see it during light images on screen or dark. I see it only when there are light images behind it.

Any feedback is welcome. It won't hurt my feelings. That is why I brought this to you folks.

Oh, and I was playing it for over four hours.

They are right, it's image retention. This same type of thread gets created every week and it's always image retention. Get Disney WOW and use the pixel flipper. It's pretty neat.

I don't own a VT25, but I thought the pixel orbiter was greyed out (i.e. disabled) when using THX. Game in a different mode where the pixel orbiter is definitely enabled for peace of mind. Many don't believe the pixel orbiter is necessary/effective, but I've always preferred to use it when gaming and have had enjoyed the results.

I would run a snow screen for awhile until it starts to fade.

Well, I am certainly rooting for image retention. I see that all the time and it doesn't scare me. When it lasts for this long, though, it is really starting to upset me.

Again, thanks for all the input.

Where can I find a snow screen?
post #14 of 18
"snow" is a term for a TV channel that doesnt have reception. You know the black and white dots all over the place. Like the cable isnt hooked up right in the old days?

On my Samsung 51" 3D plasma tv (PN51D550) I had a game image burn in that last for 24 hrs but after running regular anti-burn in programs after every viewing session the next day and after running the anti-burn in program 2 times for 10 minutes when I saw the problem first well this all eventually rid me of the burn in or image retention or whatever you want to call it. I had EA Sports gaming menus burned into the screen for those 24 hrs or so.

In my opinion if a person can get used to running anti-burn in programs after every use of the tv then they are doing the right thing. Eventually after 2 weeks I got used to doing this. If you can't get used to it then ditch the plasma tv.

It´s a shame to reduce the lifetime to half though or even less. Anyway how stubborn can IR be? 90+ hours and no change has to be permanent burnin right?

Nope, but i will leave some room to say there's a small chance for a defect elsewhere in the TV that is aiding and abetting stubborn IR (voltages or temps perhaps?).

The phrase "burn in" is being used much too loosely in this thread. These are all cases of Image retention which can be stubborn at the worst of times.

Also under most circumstances, if i am not mistaken, the pixel orbiter will not work in THX mode. Just a friendly heads up.

my LG plasma has a slight burn in of the tach on Forza. You can't see it in viewing distance but with solid color if you look for it you seen see the shadow. it never goes away.
