Televisions in general are a phosphor-based screen technology. Screen burn (or image retention) occurs due to uneven wear on the phosphors of the screen. By leaving an image on your screen sit for too long the image will "burn" itself into the those phosphors thereby creating a ghost of itself. Station logos you can still see after changing the channel are a perfect example.
Screens are most susceptable to burn-in when you have a high-contrast or bright image against a dark or black background due to some pixels being turned on to maximum intensity while others next to them are at minimum. The most common example of this would be the black bars that frame around your video to maintain its aspect ratio. Plasma screens are more susceptible to burn-in than LCD screens.
What are dead and stuck pixels? Is there a difference between the two?
The main difference between a stuck and dead pixel is that a stuck pixel usually displays one color and refuses to change (It becomes "stuck" on that color) while a dead pixel shows up as either a solid white or solid black pixel depending on the type of screen you have.
How do they happen?
Dead and stuck pixels are caused by a defect which affects the pixel's ability to reproduce light levels correctly. This can be caused by a transistor in the transparent electrode layer that has become stuck or possibly a defect during manufacturing where the RGB film layer was not properly cut. Most times a stuck pixel is caused by a transistor that is not getting any power which then allows light at that point to pass through to the RGB layer. This causes the pixel to stay red, blue, or green continuously regardless of the image on the screen.
Is there anything I can do to fix a dead or stuck pixel?
There are various ways to help deal with a pixel issue. One of the safer solutions on the internet involves running software on your television from your computer. This is great to try so long as your computer is close enough to your television or that you have long enough cables and connectors to perform such a task.
Other sites give instructions involving rubbing or putting pressure on your screen to unstick or revive a pixel which we personally cannot stress the risks involved when doing this to your fragile screen. The following is an example "pressure" solution from another website. We do not suggest doing this nor will we take any responsibility or be held accountable should you attempt this as this is here merely an example to demonstrate the possible dangers:
1. Turn off your televsion
2. Get a damp washcloth so that you don't scratch your screen
3. Fold the washcloth to make sure you don't accidentally puncture it and scratch the screen
4. Take a pen, screwdriver or other similar instrument dull point and apply pressure through the folded washcloth to where the stuck pixel is on your screen. Be sure not to put pressure anywhere else as this may create more stuck pixels rather than fix the one you have!
6. Turn your screen on while keeping pressure applied where the afflicted pixel is
7. Remove pressure and the stuck pixel should be gone
The easiest and most practical solution would be to use either The Pixel Repair QuickFix DVD or The Pixel Repair DVD! All you need is a DVD player connected to your television! No messy or lengthy cable connections from your computer, no dragging your tower to your television and definately less risk than putting pressure on your expensive screen with a screwdriver!
How do you prevent burn-in on your brand-new TV screen?
Do not leave static images on your plasma TV screen for more than an hour. Turn off your unit when you are not watching it. Do not pause DVDs for more than 20 minutes at a time.
Television screens are more prone to burn-in within the first 200 hours of use due to new phosphors tending to burn more intense when they are ignited. Displaying a bright, or moving snow image such as The Pixel Repair QuickFix DVD or The Pixel Repair DVD will "wash" a ghost image from the screen in most cases.
Keep your television screen's contrast setting at 50% or less on your new TV escecially during the first 200 hours of initial use. Most television defaults are geared towards peak or very high contrast, referred to as "picture setting". This causes the screen's phosphors to glow more intensely and decreasing the length of time required for burn-in to occur.
When playing video games and other content which have static images be sure to use any burn-in protection features your television screen may have. In your television menu look for items such as power management settings, full-time picture shift and automatic screen-saver functions. You may need to check your owner's manual for this information.
