Once a monitor has a screen burn, not a lot you can do. That's why screensavers are used. If it gives you a chuckle, a friend just bought a 42 inch plasma and left it on with a playstation game and fell asleep. Guess what!

New panel or new set.

I thought that burnt images was impossible on an LCD. It should go away with a day of use...

A couple of friends have had this problem on LCDs and there is distinct burning, even after a few days of use. Always worth trying what lisa02 has suggested.

Alternatively, as it is still under warranty, you could contest that the burn did not occur during a download and 'just happened' through 'normal usage'. Chances are you may get a replacement.

I know. Poor chap is gutted. He left it on some 'options' screen. And it's still there!

Actually this is not true although some manufacturers make the claim - in fact the effects of ghosting can often be clearly seen whilst watching a display.

Sometimes turning the set off and leaving it for quite a considerable time can cure it, but not guaranteed in any way.

There should be a warning about burn-in and using a screensaver in the manual (especially for monitors) but it can be hidden away...:-)

Re: Flat Panel Screen and Burnt Image
With LCD it is more of a residual image. It can be cleaned up by displaying
a white screen at night.

another forum claims this works its worth a try,good luck..
