Notes on image retention
The plasma display illuminates phosphors to display images. The phosphor particles have a finite illumination life. After extended periods of
illumination, the brightness of the phosphors will degrade to such an extent that stationary images would burn-in the relevant part of the screen and
appear as grayed-out images.
Tips to prevent such image retention:
- Do not display images having sharp brightness differences or high-contrast images, such as monochrome characters and graphic patterns, for
long periods of time as this can cause ghost images to form on the screen.
- Do not display stationary images for extended periods of time, but try to change them at appropriate intervals of time, or use screen savers.
- Turn down the contrast and brightness controls.
How to clean the plasma screen panel of the display
Before cleaning the display, turn off the display and disconnect the power plug from the power outlet.
To prevent scratching or damaging the plasma screen, do not knock or rub the surface with sharp or hard objects. Clean the screen with a soft
cloth moistened with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. If it is not enough, then use a cloth with mild detergent. Do not use harsh or abrasive
cleaners.
How to clean the cabinet of the display
Use a soft cloth to clean the cabinet and control panel of the display. When excessively soiled, dilute a neutral detergent in water, wet and wring
out the soft cloth, wipe the display and afterwards wipe with a dry soft cloth.
Never use acid/alkaline detergent, alcoholic detergent, abrasive cleaner, powder soap, OA cleaner, car wax, glass cleaner, etc. as they could

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.
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.

* 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.
Set the plasma monitor to "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.
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
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.

Symptom
The temperature of the display panel surface is warm.
Vertical stripes appear, depending on the screen contents.
Coarse horizontal stripes appear in FULL display.
The plasma display panel works by lighting the phosphors on it by
the discharge of internal radiation. Depending on the screen
contents, in rare cases, this may cause vertical stripes to appear
because of its failure to light the relevant pixels. Please note that
this is not a malfunction.
Adjusting the Clock Phase will reduce the horizontal stripes.

The display does not seem bright enough. (RGB input)
The ambient temperature of the monitor may be low. Ambient
temperatures less than about 15° degrees, may cause lower

The panel protection circuit automatically lowers the luminance, and
is not a malfunction. The luminance will be restored when power is
turned on for a while.
The setup-frequency setting in RGB input may be set to PC mode.
When set to PC mode, the luminance is lowered by about 10% than
when set as Movie mode. This is not a malfunction. If you do not

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.
