For years most TV’s had “Image Burn In” problems to some extend. Burn-in is permanent damage to a screen caused by displaying same image for a long period of time. For instance If you watched “ABC News” mostly, when you change a channel, You would see “ABC” logo imprinted on the screen. Even though you’re watching totally different channel. Another example is a video game with score positioned at same place. When you stop playing a game, you will see that score imprint on anything you watch. CRT and Plasma TV’s were mostly affected by this problem, however newer LCD LED models can be effected. Even Super AMOLED Screens on smartphones suffer from image burn in.
Manufacturers typically do not cover burn in by the warranty. The only way to fix image burn in is to have whole screen replaced, which would not be cost effective.
