View Full Version : Can the iPod's screen get image burn-in?

I'm not that familiar with LCDs, so I was curious about this.

It seems there is no way to turn off the screen while charging the iPod. The screen is therefore constantly showing the same thing w/o a screen saver.

Does this mean the screen can't suffer burn-in? Or that I shouldn't leave it plugged in all the time because it can burn-in?

I'm pretty clueless on LCDs. Thanks.

Some LCDs can get something resembling burn in, but it's not permanent.

Pretty sure burn in only applies to crts ,plasma and some other technologies, and not lcds so I wouldn't worry about it.

You are correct - as far as I know, LCDs are not susceptible to true burn in as other display technologies are.
