It is not always easy to see, whether or not you notice it will often depend on the content you are viewing at the time. I have only noticed IR from gaming or from "black bars", never any from logos or sporting events.
You should lower contrast level for the first few hundred hours of your set. 200 hours is still pretty green for plasma panel. If you're using one of the torch mode presets like vibrant then IR is bound to happen. Good news is it should clear itself after a while. You could try running the screen-wipe routine and see if it helps. Also lower contrast level until you hit ±500 hours of tv/movies/games to be safe. You could speed this process up by running the break-in slides found in this forums.
hey guys i'm really new to this burn in procedure and am trying to learn through research. i bought a LG 42PJ350 42" 720p plasma today and want to do the burn in procedure. I have lowered the contrast and brightness to about 36 (am i overdoing it?) and i dont leave the same channel on for more than an hour. am i doing fine so far? i want to try the burn in procedure so i downloaded the pictures from webapalooza.com/plasma but what do i do now? i kno i have to tranfser the images as a slideshow and each image shud stay for 10 secs each but how long do i let the slideshow keep going per day?
1 more question - bcuz i watch alot of sports, would zooming in enough so that the scores and ticker dont show help for the burn-in procedure?
i know its alot of questions.. i hope someone can help me, thanks alot
