Plasma Image Retention

An obvious tip or useless idea?? Suffering only briefly once, I occasionally give my screen a 5minute 'wash'. Tune into analogue with no input (unplug the aerial?) and enjoy the black & white snow. Entrancing as well as useful ?

RE: Plasma Image Retention

You're doing all the right things. Smile

Which Panasonic model have you got? Have you got Pixel Orbiter (I think that's what it's called)?

Pixel orbiter??? Its a TV not a bloomin' space rocket! Smile
No. Its a Pana P42G20. BBC breakfast was the culprit a while back but cleared easily after a wash.

Your Panasonic should have the pixel orbiter in menu options, which is specifically designed to remove IR. Run it every now & then.

I just checked my g20 as I thought it had pixel orbiter, and it doesn't. I can't find it anywhere in any of the menus. My gt50 does though, although its off for THX mode

RE: Plasma Image Retention

I avoid all the news channels which my TV does not seem to like.  I avoid any channels with logos that are big and colourful or try not to leave it on them for very long.  The pixel orbitor is on and when I did get some slight retention the TV healed itself!

Home cinema system: Panasonic 50VT65 (THX calibrated), Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1.

Gadgets: iPad 4 and iPhone 4s.  Headphones: B&O H6.  Dab radio: Roberts Dreamtime.
