Because Quantum Dot screens are subject to aging Samsung has released recommendations on how to view images on a TV screen with a quantum dot. This information can be found in the section, warranty, Samsung in the United States. These recommendations are directly linked with the possibility of burn-out screens in the quantum dots and the user's claims against the manufacturer. Below is an example of possible screen burn.
Samsung makes the following recommendations:
- TVs with an aspect ratio (16: 9 aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are primarily designed to view large format images and full-screen video.
- The images displayed on them should be in the widescreen aspect ratio of 16: 9, if the TV supports the ability to scale, it is necessary to use this feature while viewing a video format 3: 4. If you do not use this feature and your TV does not support image scaling, image viewer while leaving dark lines on the screen should be limited to no more than 15% of the total TV watching time in a week. TV should show the image with black bars no more than 15% of the total viewing time.
- Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market reports, video games, TV's use as a display station logos, browsing web sites or computer graphics, photos and drawings, it should also be limited as described above for all televisions with Quantum Dot displays. Displaying any stationary images that exceed the above guidelines can cause uneven aging of the display panels, which may be small, but persistent. The screen may be displayed (ghost) image retention. To avoid this, it is recommended to vary the program and images, and primarily use the full screen for moving images without leaving dark streaks and do not use static images.
Samsung recommends properly select formats to view the video, what would the TV screen on the quantum dots, grow old uniformly.
