    screen burn - how can i fix it?

    my home screen icons seem to have burnt into the screen slightly, i notice it if i open an app with a clear or white background.

    has anyone else had this or know how to get rid of it?

    thanks

    james

    You can't get rid of screen burn. Are you sure it's screen burn and not just retention?

    Me too!!! I can also see the home screen icons while watching a movie, playing game or through other apps. This completely sucks, as I haven't even had the phone a year yet! So, if there's no fix for it....am I eligible to take back the phone to the store I got it from and get a new one?

    I doubt they'll replace the screen because of screen burn. I'm surprised you've both actually got screen burn, do you the leave the screen on all the time with the brightness at max?

    AFAIK, you cannot get screenburn on an LCD display (no phosphor).... you sure it's not a memory problem ?

    Galaxy eye eye has a super AMOLED screen, which as we all know off by heart means Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode. It isn't LCD.

    Screen burn is possible and is irreversible.

    Not that this will help, but I use GO Launcher EX which rotates the Home Screens so the battery/time etc icons are not in the same place and vary only between 0-25% brightness for normal use. When out at night I use a 50% screen filter to reduce the brightness even more. In bright sunlight I may use 100% for a while. After 18 months, no screen burn at all.
    I could be wrong, I usually am. (Because it's only a phone)
