Please stop saying OLEDs "burn-in". They don't. They can't.

Please stop saying OLEDs "burn-in". They don't. They can't. "Burn-in" is an outdated term from the CRT days since CRTs do in fact burn-in (literally scorch stuff on the front glass. Look at the attached picture). What happens in modern displays is different from this. Colours just slowly lose luminance and therefore take on different patterns. This goes away when the display is turned off because it's permanent image retention and not real burn-in where an image is physically scorched in on the glass. Instead of calling it burn-in instead call it permanent image retention or something like "pixel wear".

    I remember placing a strong magnet to family TV and fricking it up. And we couldn't afford new TV so everyone watched it.

        Very few tvs have a manual deguass feature, that is usually only found on pc monitors.

      Yes they do, so do IPS screens too by the way.

      could you please post pictures of plasma TV's to rage bait people? you are not going to get any reply's if you just say LCD can burn in.

      I can confirm this. Happened to me with the taskbar on Linux, that is still visible on Windows.

    CRTs almost never burn in like this. Normal CRT degradation is actually incredibly similar to OLED degradation. My CRT has these vauge areas of varing brightness kind of like slight shaddows in various places, looks almost identical to the way my phone oled is degrading.

    Are you an autist? This is how language works, what do people call the accelerator pedal on an electric car? The gas pedal.

        We also call it the gas pedal in my country as well, even though we don't speak English. Again, that's how language works.
        For another example LED flashlights and torches are neither flashlights nor torches, the most accurate term for them would be portable lamps, but good luck changing the lexicon.

          i think torch comes from electric torch, which isnt perfectly accurate either but isnt as bad. the other difference is technical terms verses colloquial terms, it would be nice if there was a "proper" terms for OLED burn in that was more accurate to what it is, even if most people never use it in conversation.

            The engineers working on OLED technology probably have their own term for it, but right now I can't be bothered to look up patents or research papers just to satisfy my curiosity.

        do americans really call the accelerator pedal the "gas pedal"? like i've heard things in american movies like "step on the gas", but not using accelerator at all is a bit surprising
        and no, i don't use "gas pedal" whatsoever, in fact i don't use "gas" to refer to fuel at all, i don't know if it's just an american thing, but it's certainly not a universal thing. my car doesn't take "gas" nor do i refuel it at a "gas station". it's a petrol-engine car refuelled at petrol stations (or fuel stations)

          The pedal doesn't control acceleration. It controls the amount of fuel that can flow towards the motor.

            which in turn accelerates the engine

            It might not, it might keep the engine at the same speed it was going. Or if you turn up a hill, then it might even slow down. Of course, slowing down is a sort of acceleration as well, so it wouldn't be wrong in that case.

            In short, its a stupid term.

            If you want to be pedantic this is only true for diesel engines.

          Americans call it the accelerator, accelerator pedal, the gas, gas pedal, and sometimes just the pedal.

          right, because we call the fuel is Gasoline. This type of thing happens frequently. Ex. Aluminum (US) versus Aluminium (UK) / Flashlight (US) / Torch (UK)

          My understanding is its items that were invented in the 19th/20th century have entirely separate etymology.

    we could have had a decent argument about how OLED burn-in is not as permanent as CRT burn-in, but no OP had to say some stupid shit like trying to convince us to use "pixel wear" when the diode on the OLED display is getting burned up and you can see a image burned onto the display.
    When I think of pixel wear, I think more about dead pixels, which applies to LCD displays and OLED.
    Now we have both OLED users and CRT users calling you moronic.

    You're autistic and blatantly wrong. I have burn in on my LCD Vizio and no turning it off doesn't fix it. It's like 16 years old so at that point it's expected.

    My phone has the top bar and bottom navigation buttons permanently on the screen even with a white background displayed. I constantly use dark mode so those UI elements are in white. When OLED based screens get burned from a lighter, they permanently go to black/darker than the surrounding non-burned screen.

    QED it's burn in.
