LCDs do not suffer burn in. And there is a good reason screen savers do not kick in during recording sessions.
Nothing to fear, nothing is busted. HOWEVER I do lower the brightness of my display if I am walking away for awhile.
When I attempt to burn photos from Windows photo gallery onto a DVD, the screen saver will not come on. I also have the display set to turn off after 10 minutes in windows power settings, but that doesn't work either during burning. The picture/DVD comes out fine but I don't want to burn an image into the LCD screen if I were to burn a lot of photos at once which could take hours.
(I tried to download a manual screen shutoff called turnofflcd.exe but it caused Firefox to start opening new browser windows like crazy. I scanned for mal-ware with AVG & Malwarebytes and found nothing, but I don't think I'll try that again.)
I then e-mailed hp support and they said to try reinstalling power management and BIOS (I would rather not attempt this). Apparently hp didn't include a manual screen shutoff option for this model, so that brings me here.
I also tried searching CNET for a manual shutoff download but found nothing. Maybe I was using the wrong search terms?
I'm a newbie here and a casual computer user, so please be gentle. Any ideas? Or am I overestimating the risk of a burned in image on my screen?
