Default Screen burn in, fix?

I have a screen burn-in on my RAZR HD. The nav buttons and status bar are noticeable while using Immersive mode or simply by watching a video on YouTube. Is there anyway I could fix this or is it permanent?

Same problem here, would like to hear from anyone with experience fixing without screen replacement.

Found this article from a quick Google search:

Looks like we're out of luck.

I read the article, there is no hope. What a shame for AMOLED displays, never thought this would happen to me. I can't change my phone (voided warranty)and my contract does not end for another two years, this is great. I may have to buy another phone, just what I needed...Not.

What phone you have? RAZR HD? I've seen so many reviews of this app some of them stating that it doesn't work on the RAZR HD, I haven't tried tho, will do and see what happens. My screen burn in is pretty noticeable when In Immersive mode or in YT, which is fully immersive by default.

Yes its an xt925.
My screen burn appears only while playing videos or youtube in darker scenes.
Its not much noticeable after i ran the fix.
Make sure you run it for more than 2-3 minutes.
