WHen playing the music channels (400+) the sound info stays on the screen and is causing screen burn. How can I turn this off or the screen saver on?
I am assuming you have gateway and a plasma screen tv correct?
The correct term if you have a plasma that is newer than first generation is image retention. Most plasma's now have anti image retention settings that does a pixel orbiter option. Sometimes on my plasma when playing games, pausing for lengthy period, watching movies that have black bars or the music stations can cause the image retention issue which is very minor. There are many methods to clear that up as it is not permanent.
1) watching a movie that has alot of action scenes in it.
2) watching something that has bright colors can clear that up as well.
3) overtime watching tv can clear that up too.
4) Lastly, if you want it fixed right away, there are scrolling or "wipe" settings that does a white wash. My tv does a white bar scroll on the TV and fixes image retention. Also when i am on the music channels, the info moves around my screen to prevent image retention when using gateway. Not sure if that is a feature or if it is the tv pixel orbiter feature moving it around.
Before my Gateway system, the music info (song, artists etc) disappeared & reappeared through out the song. I assume this was by design.
With the Gateway, the music info stays on screen the entire song. This is a bad idea. Can it be programmed to disappear at intervals, or move around the screen? thanks,
Plasma TV owner
As mark_vse said, the music info does move around the screen. If you watch it carefully, you'll see it's very slowly scrolling up and down the center of the screen. This behavior is identical on all 3 of our TVs, which are all different makes and models.
Some TVs that are prone to this issue as well, have a function to turn off the display, but keeping the speakers on.
