Burn In Dvd Or Cd For Plasmas?
Posted 12 October 2007 - 08:00 AM
The ones I've seen in the past are looped video of either colors that change and fade in intensity, or random dot patterns that move around. The idea is if this type image is played for the tv's burn in period it will evenly level the phosphorus and greatly reduce future burn in potential.
Can anybody suggest where I should go to find one of these CDs or DVDs?

I find that if I ever get minor burn-in issues, a couple hours of visualizations helps to clear it.

In other words enjoy the TV and don't worry.

Actually, is there a table of known picture quality settings (contrast, tint, temp, etc) that'll give the best picture for this particular set? Again it's a Panasonic TH-42PHD9UK
edit: found a burn in DVD (free to download) if anybodys interested..

All the LG and Hitachi plasmas have a Burn In Mode activated in the service menu but this is only there for eventualities such as Panel Replacement.
From the factory you can plug and go.
The TV is quality as is most Panasonic stuff so should be reliable and give good service. It is the brand that appears in the workshops less than any other so you have made a wise choice.
A sample of the factory adjustments inside the Tv are below but again should not need altering unless repair has been carried out.
10.1. Driver Set-up
10.1.1. Item / Preparation
1. Input an APL 100 % white signal.
2. Set the picture controls: -
Picture mode: Normal
White balance: Cool
Adjust driver section voltages referring the panel data on the
panel data label.
Name Test Point Voltage Volume Remarks
175V ± 1V R628 (P)
Ve TPVE (SS) 156V ± 1V VR6074 (SS) *
232V ± 6V Fixed *
Vad TPVAD (SC) -90V ± 1V VR6477
Vda TPVDA (SS) 67V ± 1V R665 (P)
PFC C448 (+)(-) 395V± 0.5V R443 (P)
Vdat C557 (+)(-) 67V± 0.1V R665 (P) load
Vsus TPVsus 188V± 1V R628 (P) load
*See the Panel label.
Basically set the customer settings for optimum viewing to what looks best to you.
Use a test pattern DVD to do this. Always set up Brightness & Contrast first on a Mono Stair step signal.
