I have a Hitachi 1024x768 LCD Projector. LCD projectors do not project black, correct? So if I watch mostly 16x9 DVDs and happen to watch tv or some thing in 4x3, the black area on the top and bottom will not have any burn in?


Thanks

Jared

Before I go, there were some instances of LCD PJs acquiring black bars when used at not original screen ratio. Mostly linked to overheating and consequent over-overheating of black parts of the panels. Is that what is called burn-out?

Overheating damage to LCD panels is not related to the image they are projecting. As discussed on this forum ( click here ) excessive heat from the projector's lamp can damage the polarizer panels, resulting in discolorations, particularly in the corners. This has nothing to do with projecting static images and everything to do with inadequate heat dissipation. As a precaution I run my PT-L200U fan in high mode whenever I use the PJ for more than three consecutive hours.
