Lifewire shares several ways to fix screen discoloration on mobile devices, TVs, and PC monitors. Here are the methods for Android and iOS:

  • Turn your device off and on again. Sometimes, this simple solution can resolve the issue.
  • Play a colorful, fast-paced video with lots of color changes.
  • Try a burn-in fixer from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
  • Use a screen replacement kit or visit your brand’s official repair center.

Try these measures if your TV has this issue:

  • Turn down your television’s brightness and contrast. 
  • Play a colorful, fast-paced video with lots of color changes. Alternatively, switch the channel to a show with vibrant colors.
  • Use your TV’s Pixel Shift or screen shift function, which moves the image slightly to vary pixel usage constantly. 
  • Try your TV’s Refresh function, which resolves image retention problems. 
  • Get a replacement TV.

Follow these suggestions if your computer monitor has screen burn-in: 

  • Turn off your screen for at least 48 hours.
  • Set your screensaver to a pure white image and leave it for a few hours. If that doesn’t work, switch between white and black every hour or so. It may not remove screen burn completely, but it could make the image retention less noticeable.
  • Try to fix stuck pixels.
