I never heard of a LCD burn-in. LCD's can have pixel glitches where so many pixels are glitched or stuck. I heard plasma's can get burn-in in 20-30 minutes.

My CRT has a burn-in it's hard to tell but you can see it still

plasmas don't and can't get burn-in in 20 mins;
but they can get IR (image retention) in that amount of time;

but usually after about 5 mins or so with a static image on the screen, the tv goes in standby mode (black screen) to protect it.

There are simple remedies to get rid of IR, but none for burn-in.

I always thought lack of burn-in was one of the selling points of LCDs.

Agree. I'm not a LCD techwiz, I do know enough about basic Electronics to get by. Normally transistors (which is what makes a LCD work at its fundamentals) are either on or off. Either you're applying enough voltage to gate them, or you're not. Hell, without a back light, you can barely tell if a LCD is on. Some laptops can show you this if they have the ability to set the brightness to zero (which may not turn the backlight 'off'). Or to turn the backlight off, like on my Asus.

I dont see how it would be possible to leave a residual image even with a back light on. Unless, as was mentioned by another poster, the transistor got 'stuck' on.
