    Warning about the OLED Screen

    OLED Screens are amazing screens. Beautiful color and such.


    there's just a tiny problem about the technology.



    OLED's have a tendancy to "burn-in" images onto a screen like plasma tv's do.


    Though On OLED's it's a rare occurance and if it happens it's barely noticable unless your in pitch black darkness most of the time, but it can happen.


    just a fyi, tips are to make sure you turn off the screen quickly and don't put very bright images on the screen for a long time (Game Huds Can be a cause for Burn in's if played for a very long time).


    a Example of screen burn-in's and stuff here

    what a burn in may look like (very severe example)

    I've never heard of OLED screens until this post, and now I know not to get them. Thanks for the post Ps360.

    This is a warning to vita owners since the Screen is a OLED.

    i recommend OLED's alot, it's just it has this minor setback (but sooner the technology improves the burn in problem won't exist anymore.)

    Oh, well good thing I'm waiting until Christmas to get the Vita, so Sony can do its fixes by the time I get it.

    It's usually the first 100 hours you have to worry about that. And whens the last time you had or used a plasma? Anti-burn in technology has been implemented for a long time. Meaning you'd have to purposely sabotage your screen to create a burn in. So I wonder if they are comparing the plasmas from the past 4 or so years or the ones from a decade ago?

    Either way, nothing new...

    Even though the person is mentioning LED and not OLED. Look at the 3rd post down. The person is suggesting it's a defect in the product and I agree. I find it hard to believe that people have a burned in screen in 1 and 2 days of use. I'll agree I barely know anything about OLED. But for a burn-in in that period of time.... Something is definitely wrong with their devices.

    As for plasma tv's. If you goto a retail store where they leave the tv on with the same stuff for months at a time, of course your going to see burn ins and defective devices. My gf accidently left my ps3 and plasma on for 3 days a year or so ago. It has a dimming feature after like 10minutes but it was on for 3 full days. No burn in. Took around 2-3 hours for the image to fade away and disappear after I turned the tv off. But looks brand new.

    Now this is good info but it really is no cause for alarm. This really should not be a reason to not purchase any device with an OLED screen, as it really is a ''RARE OCCURANCE''. A rare occurance that can be on all devices.

    I also use a plasma. I've played HUD intensive games for hours and yes, you do get IR (image retention) but it's temporary and not permanent burn in. Also, the screens usually have a screen-cleaner that will scroll bars across the screen or something similar. As Minarum said you pretty much have to go out of your way to cause permanent burn in on today's plasmas.

    As for OLED burn in on day 2 looks like product defect rather than a problem with the technology itself.

    Lol i doubt they would be able to make that problem non existant within 7 months. Also i dnt think it is sony who would fix it. they just use the OLED technology. Another company is the one who made/invented it

    Samsung make pretty much all screens for everything. but they still havnt got rid of burn in from plasmas yet after all these years so i dnt think they can fix OLED in that short space as OLED is still a relativley new technology

    This used to happen when I played MW2 for like 4 hours at a time, you could clearly see my ammo counter in the HUD on the bottom right in black screens, only when the TV was on though, not when it was off. If it is a rare occurrence than I'm sure most people shouldn't worry about it too much.

    It's a mistake that happens when the OLED screens are produced. It's not really disturbing and annoying, only if you play in a room with no light. Most of the time you don't see it.

    Read Aipher and my post. Even though they can't get rid of the burn in. They have reduced the chances of doing it making it pretty damn close to impossible to do it with current technology.

    As for OLED, reading a little bit into it. I'm convinced it's a defect at the moment.

    Even LEDs have a chance to burn in. Like PS360 said though, it is rare. Can still happen though, so it's always good to take care of your device.
