Screen Burn Fan Club

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, I'm currently in the process of correcting an image burn in on my imac's display and was wondering if anyone else has had to deal with this too. I guess despite not being very old, using a screen saver, and turning it off whenever I'm asleep didn't seem to prevent it. An outline where my buddy list is managed to etch itself and drive me nuts when a line in photoshop magically wouldn't blend away no matter how many times i brushed over it. haha

Hopefully this solid white screensaver should do the trick.

From what I read this is fairly common? I guess static icons, the menu bar, or even the dock sometimes gets burned into the screen.

I had this problem with my lcd tv I'm using as a monitor. I tried using a plain white screensaver too, which did nothing. Finally fixed it by running the Plasma screensaver which displays random bright colors blending together. A few hours of that and all "image persistence" disappeared. I have a PC but the Mac version is here: http://www.brothersoft.com/plasma-for-mac-103203.html
