Do I Have Screen Burn?
You may know already that your television picture could be better. If you wish you had bought a more expensive model, better brand, or higher end TV, you’re not alone. Televisions are expensive investments, and it is disappointing to realize you could have spent a little more to get a better picture.
It is not uncommon for flat panel televisions to develop display problems that prevent them from performing at optimal levels without adjustment. If you have one of these devices, you may only be getting a partial return on your investment.
You might have noticed the faint shapes and lines in the background that distort your television picture — left-overs from when the game console menu or the cable channel listing was left on, or the movie or sports channel logo was displayed for a period of time.
Find a channel that is showing a black and white movie or television program. Look for any areas of the picture that are not either black, grey, or white. If you notice light purple blotches and lines, you have a form of screen burn called image retention. This condition affects the quality of your television picture even when you are watching normal color programming. You won’t believe how good your television picture will appear if you eliminate these patches and lines.
Now there are simple and inexpensive techniques that improve your television picture quality without requiring a replacement. Read on this website about no cost and low cost solutions that will make marked and noticeable improvements to your television picture.
