OLED screens offer the best picture, but they are more prone to aging, or burning, than LCD screens.In fact, all OLED screens age, and the average TV user rarely causes a TV to age.So what is aging?Image Residue and Aging Most “aging” is actually image residue that disappears after a few minutes.Image residue is temporary and then disappears automatically. It occurs when parts of an image temporarily “stick” to the screen after the image disappears.Commonly known as “burning screen”, in fact, OLED screen aging is not uniform, and aging is permanent, is not disappear.If you watch the same video for days or weeks, showing the same picture, there will be image residue. Usually, it will disappear when you watch other content, but if the same image residue appears repeatedly, it will cause concern.Basically, anything left on the screen for a long time without changing will cause the image to remain and eventually burn the screen.How to fix Screen aging SONY and LG have both said that “the best way to prevent a TV from burning or having residual images is to avoid still images, for example, by allowing a video game to pause on the screen for hours or days”.If there is image residue, reducing the brightness or choosing a darker image mode has a certain adjustment effect.TVS can also perform “refresh” daily or longer to eliminate image residue.On SONY TVS, the feature is called “panel Refresh,” while LG calls it “Pixel Refresh.”If you find image residue, you can do this manually.In all cases, the pixel refresher looks like a horizontal line that extends down the screen for an hour or more, and it’s designed to wear out the pixels evenly.OLED screens tend to age more easily than LCD screens, but most people don’t have to worry too much about this phenomenon.
