LCD burn-in

Post by hellroy » Tue 18 Feb 2020 00:11

Hi,

I left my Retrostone 2 charging with the screen on for about an hour and now I have the Amiga logo burned into the screen. :?

Any way to fix this or is the screen hosed forever?

Any tips/advice will be greatly appreciated!

Hi,
Can you upload a picture please to see what it looks like?
I'm not sure where this problem comes from. I need to discuss about it at factory.

I have also seen some faint ghost images when switching from the emulationstation GUI to a black screen. I didn't think too much of it but I'll also try to get a picture of the effect.

I suggest leaving the system alone for a couple of days and then see if it is better. If so, then let it sit longer until the burn is gone. I had this happen to an LCD TV screen of mine from playing a game. I let the TV sit for over a week and when I turned it on, the burn in was gone. Just an idea.

I'm having same issue. I don't even have to play a game very long. I played Super Mario Land for about an hour and had the coin/score count burned in for about a day. It does seem to go away, but then again I haven't had anything static on the screen for more than a few hours. There's also a border/edge lighter than the other.

Are some LCDs defective?

Here is the edge burn-in effect. This comes and goes. Longer I have it turned on, it goes away more. Image
