How to Overcome a Short Burn In Screen on a Laptop

Burn In or ghosting on laptop screens are things that affect comfort in use. Usually this happens because the screen has not changed display for a long time, so some pixels suffer stuck and don’t want to change.

This event is usually experienced on screen types AMOLEDbut basically it can also happen on the screen LCD though. And this obstacle can still be overcome as long as it is not too severe.

Cases that are classified as mild are “short burn in”. Where is the stuck pixel will disappear in just a few minutes. This can still be overcome and prevented so that it does not happen again.

Overcome Short Burn In Screen on Laptop

There are few steps to solve it. Although basically a short burn in only lasts a few minutes, but you can also speed it up so that the stuck pixels quickly disappear.

1. Enter Sleep Mode for a Moment

You just need to go into sleep mode and wait for a moment until the stuck pixel is gone. You won’t know when it will disappear, but I suggest waiting for a few minutes.

Compared to leaving the screen on, this is actually faster and safer to deal with. And besides this method, you can also immediately turn off the laptop for a moment, but going into sleep mode is actually enough.

On some laptops, you can enter sleep mode by pressing the button FN+F4. But if you can’t, please do it manually from the options START > POWER > Sleep.

2. Play Video Stuck Pixel Fixer

Stuck Pixel Fixer is a video that displays different colors quickly. Useful for making the screen update stuck pixels. Lots of these videos on Youtubeand you can choose one.

Play the video for a few minutes in fullscreen. Later the stuck pixels will disappear by themselves.

For a relatively short burn-in screen, this method is sure to work. Meanwhile, if the problem is too severe, it may take longer to wait.

Tips to Prevent Screen Burn In

Overall there are many ways to prevent screen burn in, but here I’ll keep it as short as possible, so you don’t have to read any more text.

The first is to make sure the screen brightness on the laptop is not often set to the maximum. The second is to activate the feature screensaver on Windows, this method has been shared on the Blog Second website, please search in the search field.

And the last one is to set the screen dim time to about 5 minutes. Less than that would be even better.

Apart from that, you can also avoid static display for a long time and always refresh the display manually. For example when watching live streaming games online, sometimes there is a static display that doesn’t change for quite a long time. This can cause burn in if you don’t refresh the screen.
