Meteobridge PRO OLED display burn-in

Post by RobertB » Fri Jun 14, 2019 1:36 am

I've been running my Meteobridge PRO unit for about a year and a half now and for the last several months I have noticed burn-in on the display. I leave the RF analysis screen on at all times and you can see it ghosting behind any other screen. This is not a show stopper but I would like to get it repaired or replaced if possible. I've attached a couple of images of the burn-in I am seeing.

Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

Robert

Do you have a real necessity to want to leave the screen lit permanently?

Yes
Why? Are you actually watching the screen continuous 24/7?

Even if you utilize the Display Control feature to shut it off during off hours the display will still burn-in. OLEDs look nice, but are not a great fit for informational displays.

Mine is very badly burned-in and I've been using the Display control feature since it was introduced.

I do not appreciate people who respond to my inquiry but questioning why I doing what I'm doing instead of speaking to the issue at hand. Do you have something to add about controlling burn-in? Or are you going to continue to question why I look at the display?

I don't see a way to control the brightness at all. That might help. Yeah, burn-in seems to be a fact of life with these displays.

You probably need to loose the attitude, somebody may be able to help you if they knew what you actually required and reasons may trigger a better response, running the OLED 24/7 is a known short term failure and anything that can extend the life by reducing the requirements could extend the life considerably, won't eliminate it but will certainly reduce it.

So would scheduling the display help? Do you look at it all day and all night? Have you looked into the script variants that run/cycle the display? These won't stop burn-in over a long term but will certainly extend life.

And take the hint if you don't appreciate questions then nobody will understand how to respond to limited info!
