Use Xbench to fix screen burn-in
Authored by: Margit on Jan 28, '09 02:31:45PM

I have a 24" aluminum iMac with frequent "image persistence", wherein I can actually read partial contents of web pages long after having shut the browser window. After googling the problem, I came across the JScreenFix applet from Running the applet in my browser window, with the window set at full screen, has been successful in scrubbing out the smudges of text, but they reappear as soon as I have any window open for too long.

So long as I use a desktop photo that has lots of detail I don't tend to see the image persistence, but if I am doing work that has a plain background, the image is very distracting and I then take the time to scrub it out.

This problem never evidenced itself in my older 20" white iMac, or my even earlier 22" plasma cinema display.

There's never been a plasma Cinema Display (or any other plasma display from Apple, for that matter). All Cinema Display models are LCD.
