[Tips and Tutorial] [MIUI Resources Team] How to fix screen burn-in on your Android smartphone


Hello MIUIers,
Ghost image or screen/image burn-in are names given to a permanent discoloration of your smartphone’s screen caused by irregular pixel usage. The prolonged use of static images can create a permanent shadow or ghost of that image on the screen. This problem is more common than you think, and happens most often on AMOLED screens (although LCD displays aren’t completely free of this bug). Fortunately, there is a solution to restore the image quality of your device.


The screen ghost happens when phosphor compounds that emit light to produce images lose their intensity with prolonged use. Moreover, the irregular use can "burn" an image onto the screen which will be visible all the time. Many apps which are available in the Play Store promise to reduce or even stop the problem. One is the Screen Burn-in Tool.


The concept is simple: a sequence of primary colors is displayed on your device, restoring the "burnt" pixels. In fact, this was the original function of computer screen-savers: one dynamic image that appears when the screen is idle to makes the pixels "exercise" and ensure that the same area of display doesn’t remain constantly illuminated.

Do it at your own risk!
Today I will teach you how to remove the famous burn.

White 80%


Blue 80%:


Green 90%:


Red 100%:


I can not guarantee it will work on other models, my cell phone had very strong shadows on the screen, I realize that almost everything has disappeared ... I'm still running the program, I'll keep you informed on this subject!

Yes, it works, although some report that this does not happen, but their effectiveness depends a lot on the severity of the recording.

If you have shadows from a keyboard or square or both you can remove everything or almost everything, I have the program running for a week at night, I restart the cell phone in the morning and normal use.

Download the Liquid Burn-in Wiper application and use one or four weeks at maximum brightness.

Restart the device once a day, you will have with some luck recovered 80% to 99% of the screen with shade or burn.

Mine at the moment recovered 80%.
Soon I will update the topic with new photos, please wait.

Update add apk:
LCD Burn in Wiper v6.1
OLED Tools v1.3

Is this the same app as LCD Burn-in Wiper 6.1 by AVAWorks on playstore?

※AMOLED and OLED devices are not supported.

Not saying it doesn't work, but an app targeted at AMOLED screens should be your first port of call...

If you even repair the ones that say it is for OLED screen they use the basic color system (rgb) ... then any application that changes the default colors should work normal.

Yes, my friend, I do not know why they said no.
do the test yourself, let it run for a week and you will see the difference.

As soon as I finish the tests I will post new photos.

The rest screen is toprevent it from appearing.
You can use it, but it will take much longer, since we do not have a refresh of colors quickly and evenly.

If you want to contribute to the community, you can do some tests.

I think what he meant was:

Does it work by burning the not-already burnt out parts to make it appear less burnt out?
