Can jpeg pid on LCD tv when not used damage tv?

Let's say that when we are not using our LCD tv that I display a jpeg photon on it kind of like as if it was art. Would the same pic like that being displayed damage the pixels on the tv or the tv picture quality itself? It seems like a long time ago that having a pic on a computer screen for an extended period of time would damage it and that is why there were "screen savers". LCD's are not the same as the old CRT monitors I know but is it ok to do this without risk?

According to the Samsung Company...... yes LCD TV's can get burn in damage but not as easily as an old CRT type TV.

It would help in advising you to know how old your TV is. Both older LCD and plasma displays are much more susceptible to burn-in than modern ones. "Older" in this case would be, say 5 years or more. I believe that some of the first couple years of plasmas were actually MORE prone to burn-in than CRTs.

Use a slide show instead of a single JPG.

LCDs do not get burn-in. Plasmas and OLEDs do, but what is commonly thought of as 'burn-in' on an LCD is actually called 'image persistance'. The pixels are not actually being damaged, but when displaying static images for long durations they begin to retain a residual charge that gradually makes them darker. It takes a looooooong time to build up - and it does look like burn-in - but it can be reversed by running a 'pixel flipper' program in the display's native resolution for a couple hours.
