Philips TV screen saver?

I have a Philips 32PFL5405H/05. I have been through the user manuals and am unable to find a screen saver option to use when playing a load of mp3 files to avoid any possible screen burn from the album cover display. I can use the 'Home' button to bring up the home screen and could also use the 'Scenea' option for a photo. I am looking for a 'floater' type effect. Wondered if anyone has found anything.

Thanks.

Do you need a screen saver. I thought that was only needed with CRT TV not with new LCD or plasma

It's image persistence in an LCD TV that you have to watch out for LCD TV's. However I think that the chances of it being permanent are low. What does the manual state about leaving it on a static image?

Woolwell The online manual doesn't mention it strangely. I think I will occasionally switch to the menu screen that is basically dark grey or black. I posted as I have loaded about 2-3 hours of Xmas music onto a usb and I was concerned about the bright mp3 logo in the centre of the screen.
