Ok, I had this idea, and it may be way off-base, but it might be just crazy enough to work. Unfortunately, I don't have a TV to try this on (yet), so you guys will have to see what works. Here are the steps:[list=1][*]Use a digital camera to take a picture of your burnt-in screen. I don't know which would work better: screen completely off, or screen on with a pure white screen. Which one shows the burn-in effect better? Anyway, you'll want to take the pic from as close to center as possible, so the image of the screen is as close to a rectangle as possible. [*]Get the resulting image into Photoshop (or other image-editing prog), and crop out everything but the screen. You might have to adjust the geometry, so it's a perfect rectangle, and you don't end up cropping part of the screen, or leaving part of the TV border in there. This is where I'm thinking it'll be better to take the pic with the set on with a pure white screen, so you can also crop parts of the screen that don't display anything. [*]Change image mode to RGB color. (From now on, I'll assume you're using Photoshop. If not, you'll have to figure out how to do the equivalent on your software). [*]Choose "Image->Adjustments->Levels" (or hit Ctrl-L). Make sure "Channel" is set to RGB. Then adjust the two triangles below the histogram, so that the black triangle is just to the right of the lowest value on the graph; then slide the white triangle so it's just to the left of the highest value on the graph. This will make it so you have a full range of white-to-black values, thereby exercising the non-burnt areas more. NOTE: You do NOT have to "invert" the image in any way, as the burnt areas will be black on the resulting image, and therefore will not be exercised by the resulting image. [*]Figure out how many pixels get cropped from the top, bottom, and each side of a 640x480(?) signal, due to your DVD player's pixel-cropping, plus overscan on your set. I assume there's something on DVE and/or Avia to help you do this. [*]Then add enough white space to the top, bottom, left, and right side of your image to make up for the amount not shown on your set. [*]Resize the resulting image to 640x480(?). Use "Image->Image size..." and make sure you constrain proportions. EDIT: I just realized that 640x480 would only give you a 4:3 image. The resolution of a 16:9 image would be 853.333 x 480. This doesn't seem like it would convert correctly. Maybe you just do 640x480 and have your TV stretch the signal. If that's the case, you'll need to shrink the image the other way (make it thinner) to fit. [*]There are many ways to do this step. You'll want to convert the resulting image to a media file, and burn it onto either a blank DVD or CD (as VCD or SVCD). Or it might be as simple as saving the jpg on a CD and using the DVD player's jpg viewer, but this might yield differing results as far as image-cropping, so you'd have to re-figure those values. [*]Display the resulting file on your set. Verify that the darkened areas of the image match up with the burned areas of the screen. If not, you may have to make adjustments to your image and re-burn a new CD/DVD. [*]When you're satisfied, display the image on your set for an hour or two at a time (use your judgement, as I have no experience with this). Hopefully, this will reverse the burn-in. Also, turning your contrast all the way up should speed up the process (remember your old value!). [*]In addition, if you can make the image "blink" on and off, I believe I've read that it exercises the pixels even faster, as they burn faster when constantly being turned on and off. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this, as I don't want anyone to ruin their sets doing this! [/list=1] Well, that's it. I know it's a lot of trouble, but if you really want to get rid of burn-in, it seems like it wouldn't be too bad. Any suggestions/improvements? Am I way off, or would this work?
