Screen burns are one common problem associated with plasma TVs. Screen burn occurs when an image burns into the screen and appears at all times.
Screens burns often take place when users leave a specific image on the screen for too long. An example of this is when people pause a movie or show for a long period of time.
Phosphor trails are another problem with plasma TVs. These trails occur when the screen has an abrupt change in color. This can cause the images on the screen to leave a green or blue trail, and it is more common with black and white movies.
