4:3 and 16:9 Potential Burn In Questions, Please

Hello, Just got a new 40" Samsung LCD TV. Have a question regarding potential burn in problems. Not all that sharp with this "stuff". The Samsung manual says to avoid 4:3, which causes black bars on the sides, and the top and bottom. O.K., I can understand that.
