Editing Themes To Avoid Screen Burn
« on: January 01, 2010, 07:15:54 pm »
I want to charge my Dingoo overnight, and was just wondering:

Is it possible to edit an existing theme to just have a black charging screen, so I can avoid screen burn?

Thanks in advance :)

i've been charging mine pretty much every night for about 4.5 months, you won't get screen burn, or at least none before it reaches the end of its life

though if you wanted to just use a custom firmware with the system folder visible, then it's just a matter of editing a file

Or just set the "blight time" setting to 10 sec and when it shows you the charging animation press the B button. The screen will be turned off after 10 sec.

not if it's showing the big green battery charging screen (that rhymed, the bgbcs XD), or at least mine doesn't, lights up the whole room unless i put the screen downwards

Burn in Problem

TFT Displays don't burn in the same way as CRT displays. There's no danger of permanent burn in on TFTs. LCD TV-Sets easily show a ghostly image, if you let them stay to long on the same picture (e.g. Videotext), but this disappears, if you turn the TV off for 10 or 15 minutes. On TFT PC-Monitors, I never saw any kind of ghosting images and I don't saw this effect ever on any LCD handheld.

BTW You should edit the Thread Name, it's misleading

Thanks dude, that's exactly what I wanted! Maybe I'm being over-protective of my Dingoo, but better safe than sorry!  ;D
