Screen burn, or burn in is when the images displayed on the screen gets burned onto the TV and won’t go away, even if the TV gets turned off. There’s a lot of talk around saying that modern Plasma TV screens don’t get burn in, but as it turns out, they do!
I’ve had my plasma TV about a year and I’ve been using it as a computer monitor for browsing the internet and watching movies. Unfortunately it’s already got screen burn and the image of Internet Explorer is burned in and can be seen even when the plasma TV is turned off 🙁
I wish I’d bought an LCD TV instead.
