Turn down the contrast. Factory settings have the contrast very high,
because a nice, bright image is a unit seller.Keep it down around 50 if your
unit is 100 based as most are.
Yes, there are static images on a lot of games (Health indicators, etc.),
but I wouldn't be concerned unless they are a high contrast (Imagine a pure
white indicator against a black background), and if so then switch games or
watch another source after a few hours. One of the best ways to protect a
RPTV is to use it for more than one purpose, for example, watch tv and play
games on it. In this way it ensures a more even use pattern on the screen.
Perhaps the best thing I can say is to tell you that I've had a 61" Toshiba
RPTV that gets abused with both the computer and the xbox, and so far it is
doing fine (It has been the source of many xbox marathons since Nov. 15th).
Even without video games I still suggest turning down the contrast levels if
you watch very many letterbox movies, such as DVDs, etc, and it is a 4:3
