Question

What is Image Sticking, Image Burn-in, an After Image, or a Ghost Image on an LCD?

Answer

Uninterrupted display of still or static images over an extended period may cause
"burn in", also known as "after-imaging" or "ghost imaging", on your screen. "Burn-in",
"after-imaging", or "ghost imaging" is a well-known phenomenon in LCD panel
technology. In most cases, the "burned in", "after-imaging", or "ghost imaging" will
disappear gradually over a period of time after the power has been switched off.
Always activate a moving screen saver program when you leave your monitor
unattended.
Always activate a periodic screen refresh application if your LCD monitor will display
unchanging static content.
WARNING: Severe"burn-in", "after-image", or "ghost image" symptoms will not
disappear and cannot be repaired. The damage mentioned above is not covered
under your warranty.
