Plazma TV burn in

by fibre101 / May 26, 2008 12:27 AM PDT

I have a Pioneer Elite Plazma television that has burn in. I went on line and purchased a DVD called pixel protector, it is designed to reverse burn in. Does this product work or will it cause further problems to my television?

Most of those disc run a bright white screen to wash it out, its supposed to shorten the overall life of the tv by a day everytime you run that "supposedly".
But I would love to know how the heck you burned in anything on a pioneer elite lol.

Dunno, but it seems you may be over concerned.

Sort of obsessing. The good name brand plasmas do a decent job of getting past burn in.

Find that too hard to believe that a Pio has this issue...

Never, in my life, have I heard anything about a Panasonic or Pioneer burning in an image, as this is more prone in the lower-end plasma lines from LG, Insignia, Vizio, etc... For a Pioneer to do this is beyond me, since they almost have perfected this technology, from my understanding. Wish I knew how to help you, but you should've given it a break-in period, this would've definitely resolved that one.
