I have been noticing when I start up my Apple in my office, that my Apple Cinema Display is starting to burn out in certain areas.

I always put my hard drive icon, which is a RustyBrick logo, in the top right corner of my screen. So when I move the icon, it shows a faint imprint, even though it is not there.

Here is a picture, look at the top right of the picture.

Apple Cinema Display Screen Burn Out

You see, I just moved my icon slightly down and to the left, so you can see the outline it formed in my screen.

How crazy!

This screen is not cheap. Does it bother me? Not at all, I think it is cool.

    Actually, it is a misconception that LCD displays like the Cinema Display can suffer from screen burn-in like the old CRTs. You’re probably suffering from a very similar latent pixel effect, but the good news is that, with LCDs, the effect is never permanent. The general rule is to turn your display completely off for 24 to 48 hours to completely remove any latent pixel effect. So, next time you go on a short vacation, shut everything down and you should be fine. Check out this link for more info:
