IMAGE RETENTION OF PLASMA DISPLAY
There are different characteristics that result in panel image retention depending on how the plasma display is used.
Situations and effective usage methods related to ghosting are provided below.
Image retention characteristics of a plasma display
The image retention phenomenon of a plasma panel occurs because of partial phosphor degradation arising from partial character and figure
display.
For example, when the character image as shown in Fig. A at the right is
continuously displayed for a long period of time, the only part of the phosphor
(Red,Green, Blue) that will degrade will be the color of the applicable character
display portion. Consequently, when a white image is displayed on the entire
screen as shown in Fig. a, the character marks displayed up to that time will
become a color difference visible to the eye, but the phosphor will never burn.
【Fig. A】
【Fig. a】
■The degree of image retention is proportional to the brightness of the characters and figures displayed as well as the display time.
• The tendency of the phosphor is to degrade more the brighter the characters
and figures are displayed. When images of figures with different levels of
brightness, as shown in Fig. B, are continuously displayed for a long period of
time, it becomes easier to see image marks at locations when the brighter
figures are displayed to see.
【Fig. B】
【Fig. b】
* The image retention images in this document are exaggerated for the purpose of explanation. The actual manner in which the image retention
is seen differs depending on the operation time and brightness.
Methods to Reduce the Occurrence of Image Retention
• Lower the Contrast and Brightness settings of the plasma display as much as possible.
A function is provided in the display that controls the brightness of the screen to reduce degradation of the panel. Using this function makes it
possible to reduce image retention.
(Refer to Panel Life (Extend 1.or Extend 2 shown on 22 )
• Set the plasma monitor to an “Screen Wipe” or “Inverse” display.
The occurrence of image retention when displaying images of identical patterns, such as static images, for long periods of time can be
reduced by displaying a reversed color or completely white screen for about 1 ~ 2 hours after terminating the display.
(Settings can be made using Screen Wipe and Inverse of Function MENU shown on 22 )
• Using in combination with moving images
Since the degradation of the fluorescent material progresses comparatively uniformly for moving images, the occurrence of partial image
retention can be minimized by usage in combination with moving images such as DVDs.
* Please be careful since image retention will occur if display is left in a two screen display state for a long period of time.
* Television broadcasts include images displayed for long periods of time in which the left and right or top and bottom of the image are cut and
broadcast station name or time are displayed in the same portion of the screen. Image retention in these portions can
be expected to occur, so please be aware.
NOTES
About screen defects
• High precision technology is used in the making of plasma panels but there may be dark spots (points that do not illuminate) and bright spots
(points that are too bright) in some cases. These do not indicate a malfunction.
About residual images
• In some cases, residual images may remain after the short-term display of still images, but these will disappear and return to normalcy.
This is not a malfunction.
About the panel screen
• Plasma displays create images by means of electrical discharges inside the panel. Because of this, the temperature of the panel surface may
rise in some cases.Also, plasma displays are made of finely processed glass. A reinforced glass filter is installed over the panel surface but
avoid strong impact because there is still danger of glass breakage.

• The plasma display panel is lighting the phosphors by the
discharge of internal energy. In some cases, this may cause the
temperature of the panel surface to increase. Please note that this
is not a malfunction.
-
• There are locations on the screen that are different from the
periphery (*).
*Points that do not light, points with brightness different
from that of the periphery, points with color different from
that of the periphery, etc.
• High-precision technology is used to manufacture the plasma
display panel. However in some cases, there are minor defects in
some parts of the screen. Please note that this is not a
malfunction.
• Vertical stripes appear, depending on the screen contents.
• The plasma display panel is lighting the phosphors by the
discharge of internal energy. Depending on the screen
contents, in rare cases, this may cause vertical stripes to appear
because the phospors fail to light. Please note that this is not a
malfunction.

• Flickering in the form of horizontal lines oscillating up and
down.
(PC INPUT MODE only)
• If the direct frequency from the computer is below 85Hz, try a
higher frequency (upper limit 85Hz). There may be a slight
attenuation of the current image.
• Try turning the Vertical Filter On. For this case however, the
vertical resolution will drop.

• The fan motor is noisy. (Only for models with fan.)
• The fan lowers the temperature of this unit. If the ambient air
temperature increases, the fan RPMs increase and motor
noise increases. This is not a malfunction.
• Coarse horizontal stripes appear in FULL display.
-
• The top of the monitor heats up.
• When used for long periods of time, the top of the monitor may
heat up. This is not a malfunction.
-
• Text characters are displayed with varying thicknesses.
• The thicknesses of characters and lines may vary if images with a
vertical resolution greater than 512 lines are displayed.
This is not a malfunction.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Cautions When Using the Plasma Display
„ Do not bring your hands, face or objects close to the ventilation holes of the plasma display. The top of plasma display is usually very hot due to the high temperature of exhaust air
being released through the ventilation holes. Burns or personal injuries may occur if any
body parts are brought too close. Placing any object near the top of the display could also
result in heat related damages to the object as well as the display itself.
„ Be sure to disconnect all cables before moving the plasma display. Moving the display with its cables
attached may damage the cables and thus case fire or electric shock danger.
„ Disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet as a safety precaution before carrying out any type of cleaning or maintenance procedure.
Front Panel Cleaning Instructions
„ The front of the display has been specially treated. Wipe the surface gently using only a cleaning cloth or a
soft, lint-free cloth.
„ If the surface is particular dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in a mild detergent solution. Wring the cloth to
remove excess liquid. Wipe the surface of the display to remove dirt. Then use a dry cloth of the same type
to dry.
„ Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fingers or hard objects of any kind.
„ Do not use volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinners.
Cabinet Cleaning Instructions
„ If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe the cabinet with a soft, dry cloth.
„ If the cabinet is extremely dirty, soak a lint-free cloth in a mild detergent solution. Wring
the cloth to remove as much moisture possible. Wipe the cabinet. Use another dry cloth to
wipe over until the surface is dry.
„ Do not allow any water or detergent to come into contact with the surface of the display. If water or moisture gets inside the unit, operating problems, electrical and shock hazards may result.
„ Do not scratch or hit the cabinet with fingers or hard objects of any kind.
„ Do not use volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinners on the cabinet.
„ Do not place articles made from rubber or PVC near the cabinet for any extended periods of time.
Avoid Still Images
„ Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for extended periods of time. This can cause a
permanent image to remain on the plasma display. Examples of still images may include:
still computer images, still video game images, still logos or pictures, text and images displayed in 4:3 Normal mode.
