Monitors – LCD conditioning questions?
HERE THE ANSWERS 👇
You probably have a Dell monitor, which has an option in its menu to perform “LCD Conditioning” to fix image retention. It’s very rare that a home PC will require “conditioning”, but image retention can happen if you have one image on the screen for days at a time. Pixels can become polarized when sitting at one charge, but it’s not permanent, as is the case with phosphor-based displays like CRT and plasma.
Conditioning will just cycle the polarity of all the pixels so that they lose their polarity, and it is completely harmless.
You don’t need to run the conditioning cycle, though, unless the ghost of an image seems stuck on-screen.

Plasma burn-in issue is a thing of the past, especially with a Panasonic. 120Hz vs 60Hz – 37″ and less 60Hz is likely fine, 40″ and above start thinking 120Hz. But ultimately its a visual thing, so you should lay your eyes on the TVs in person and see how much it matters for your needs. Buy a Plasma and its moot point as Plasma is perfect in fast motion playback. LCD LCDs inherently suffer problems with motion playback. They suffer from motion blur (ghost trails). This is compensated for with the 120Hz/240Hz refresh rates. This feature helps out a lot, but is not 100%. And you are expected to pay a price premium for this add-on. CCFL LCDs have muted colors, grey blacks, and so-so contrast. This is compensated for with the modern LED LCD. The LED backlight provides a massive jump in quality in regard to those 3 things. It brings it to a near Plasma/CRT/DLP level. Again you’re asked to pay a premium for this feature. But in smaller sets, LCDs are the go to choice. So for the time being they will certainly still fill an important need there. And there also offer a certain sense of familiarity for many, as LCD computer monitors have been the norm for so long now. Plasma Plasmas are inherently near instantaneous in their refresh rate. They are flawless in motion playback. And because its inherent, there’s no added expense for you to have to pay. Plasmas inherently deliver vivid color, true blacks, and deep contrast. They do this right out of the box. They are a better overall image. And so you get a better image and perfect motion playback without having to pay anything extra. Plasmas only currently suffer from many myths and misconceptions. The main ones being that they suffer from burn-in, they are more expensive, they have shorter life spans, and they are energy hogs. Modern Plasmas do not suffer from burn-in. After they are conditioned, you would have to actually work hard to accomplish a burn-in. To condition a new set all you need to do is keep the brightness and contrast turned way down for the first 100-200 hours of use. After that optimize and enjoy. Plasmas are not more expensive than LCD rivals anymore. Any especially with LCDs needing high end features like 120Hz and LED backlights to compete. Those features often make LCD far more expensive to buy. Plasmas do not have shorter life spans. The reputable brands will deliver models that are rated to 60,000 – 100,000 hours. That basically means that in 10 years time, at 8 hours a day, 365 days a year, you would only really see at most about a 10% loss in brightness. So the set is likely well useable for beyond 10 years. Current Plasma models are now energy star certified. This means no more being power hogs against LCDs. They can match LCDs in this regard. But every model is different. There are some LCDs that still perform better, and there are some LCDs that perform much worse. It changes ever year as new models come out.
Im using DELL LED Monitors in my new mac pro.
This option of LED Conditioning takes a very long time to end.

Monitors – LCD conditioning questions?
how often does LCD conditioning need to be done ? can it be done too often ? what does LCD conditioning do ? thanks !!!
I just did it there now on my Monitor here in work. Always good to do a bit of maintenance every now and then
Maybe your thinking of the old CRT Monitors that needed degaussing.
LCD Monitors do not need conditioning. Apart from wiping the screen free of dust.
