Yet another reason to use extended desktop mode ALL THE TIME.

W/an PIE control.

Try this, hit button Repair, but for about 30 seconds max (there is a risk of invert burn), then check burn again. In case repeat process.

It helped little for me.

Are you sure that he needs only 30 seconds to repair the display?
People says that you have to leave it on for about 8-9 hours..

I left it for 2 minutes and I had burned icons, insted of bluish bar.

You can repeat this process, but I do not recommend leave it 8 hours.

I am not sure about the time, try it yourself, but watch out, you can make it even worse.

Maybe using expanded desktop for plenty of weeks would make better job.

Nah, been using expanded desktop for months now and it's not going away. I think the blue burns out faster than the other colors on this screen and that's why it looks bluish compared to the rest of the screen - the blue on the rest of the screen has dimmed over time while the edges have a stronger blue since it's not been used as much. I'm definitely going to avoid AMOLED in the future.

About AMOLED you are right, but every "better" screen than simple TFT is avoidable. ISP on my N7 after year and half is getting yellowish tint around edges... On my old Optimus One was display same after 2 years of usage.

Both devices are still under warranty, so I request for screen replacement, but what about future? I dont want to pay for new display every year...

I think that the pixels on amoled displays starts burning beacuse the pixel on the navbar and statusbar are permanently black..so they aren't used and they don't start damaging..the color that the amoled starts to show by far is yellow...so if we leave screen during night showing a yellow image,the screen comes back to the original colors??

P.s.: sorry for my bad english
