Default [Q] Image stuck on screen

Hi. I have the top part of my screen stuck. In fact, in the top part of watsapp(header with name) is stuck on the screen and appears beneath every other application opened that has a light background. I even formatted the phone, re installed android but its still there. How do I fix that?

No. As I said it only appears on a pale background but not on darker colours. Any pale coloured app that opens on top of it, that area can be seen underneath the opened app. An app with a dark colour will cover the area and it is not visible. It's as if that part of the screen is frozen.

It sounds to me like it's that infamous oled burn-in case.If you leave a static image on screen for a long time,say,2/3 hours,it'll burn in and stay there as a faint ghost image and you can do nothing about it.Only screen replacement.
Just my 2 cents...

I think you best described what happened. And what exactly should me replaced, the digitizer? Is it worth replacing and about how much will it cost?

LCD+ digitizer.
If you have a warranty - go for it,otherwise it'll cost you alot.
For me it cost 120$.

seriously?
If I put an image staying for hours it can burn into my screen?
That sounds really weird..

Just looked it on the internet, now I'm afraid turning on my phone XD

I have a samsung wave with amoled, I think that one is a bit better (better dpi), but also better brightness & colors. I love amoled, it makes colors more alive.
