OLED burn in?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there, 

I recently played a game (poly bridge) witch static bars on the top and bottom for about 5 1/2 hours on my Lg V30 and after that I had some image retention of these bars. So far so good, on the next morning everything was fine again, but at the same evening after watching about 1 1/2 hours of video, I got not exactly the same effects, but a strange grey-ish stripe above only some of my multitasking apps and abovey volume slider (on the side) (I attached an image). Then on the next morning everything was fine again, and basically the same as the last day happened, but after I layed the phone down for about 10 minutes everything was fine again. And those bars also move, if I move the app in multitasking or the volume slider comes in and out. I feel like it recovers really fast, but no matter what I do, those effects come over time. I would be really glad if somebody knew the problem, even if it's to replace the screen (hopefully not).1635387500_Screenshot_20200526-0041293.thumb.png.f93a104141c0356e6d3df8ccee5ffc44.png

I can't see it... Maybe It's just me but I don't think you can see burn-in in a screenshot...

Burn-in only shows up on the physical screen (hardware)

A screenshot is pure software

 

You can punch your computer display to the point where the image is messed up. But if you take a snapshot using the printscreen button or image recording software, and then view it on another screen, it will look perfectly fine.

 

The only way we can see whats going on with your phone display, is if you take a photo or video of your phone with another camera


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Go into a dark room, download or look at a plain white image and crank up your device's brightness.

 

If it's a true screen burn in, you'll see it easily.

 

Additionally, if it is not an actual screen burn it, it could very well be some sort of bad screen uniformity, same thing as before, go into a dark room, download or look at this image (Chrome's Incognito start page also works) and crank up your device's brightness, if you see various shades of gray, that could be the gray stripe you saw.

Now I've tried a plain white screen and grey in a dark room, but I can't see anything anymore, just like each morning the last 2 days. When I woke up, I could still see the artefacts, bit after having breakfast, they're completely gone again. I try to make a photo or video next time it appears.

If the issue goes away, even if for a while, then what you are experiencing is not burn-in

 

Real display burn-in is permanent

But what is it then?

At the time when you took that image above, was the ghosting problem visible on the screen?

If it was, then it is not a rendering issue. Not rendering issue means the SoC and integrated GPU is fine. So possibly a screen fault.

 

Will replacing the screen fix it? IDK

 

I dont have a V30, and have never encountered this on any of my devices before

That's not burn in.

Could be some kind of "Image Retention": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_persistence

Or how the Display's energy control.

 

Or that whole "Bar" goes up to the top, but the top part should be 100% transparent, but LG made it only 99% transparent --> So you can "see" something there at the exact vertical alignment, as the bar you pull in.

Btw. My volume slider is from a third party app, so it could be that there a bug, but series I got the effect in my multitasking view, but not as often.
