ROG Oled advice

Level 9

I just got the rog swift PG34wcdm Oled gaming monitor.  Reading up, I see stuff about pixel cleaning and that it will automatically take care of this when the monitor is switched off.  Does this include standby mode?  Like, if I just let the monitor turn itself on and off based on when it gets signal, does that count?  Or does it need to be manually turned all the way off?

Or...   Do I need to manually clean the pixels now and again?  Never had an OLED before, so would love to get some advice.  Thanks in advance.

Hi @ATOdinson,

Pixel cleaning is an effective technique employed to counteract image persistence or burn-in on an LCD screen. This method entails the swift toggling of pixels, effectively clearing any lingering charge that could lead to ghosting or image retention. By doing so, pixel cleaning contributes to extending the lifespan of your display and preserving its overall quality. The automated process takes approximately 6 minutes and triggers when the monitor turns off. It is advisable to initiate pixel cleaning whenever the screen is in continuous use for 8 hours to ensure optimal performance.


  • The activation of the pixel-cleaning function is influenced by the selected
    power setting.
  • In Standard Mode, pixel cleaning initiates automatically five minutes after entering Standby mode, experiencing No Signal, or when in Sleep Mode/Shutdown.
  • Pixel cleaning does not commence in Power Saving Mode following a computer shutdown or when entering Sleep Mode.
