    So, my V10 has been showing signs of burn in. I'd be messaging a friend on an app (Kik) for a good 30-45 minutes, and after that convo, I noticed a ghost image of my keyboard on the screen. The darker the color on the screen, the more noticeable the keyboard was. I could also see the name of the person I was talking to on the top of the screen. I tried restarting the phone, and the image showed up on the red Verizon start up screen while it was powering on. I did manage to get rid of it with an app that flashes different colors on the screen, but it still pops up from time to time and can be very annoying.

    I've never heard of that before. Does it matter if you run the screen at full brightness? Maybe a darker keyboard color?

    I've tried different brightnesses, and it wasn't just the keyboard either.

    Huh. Wow that's crazy. Hope it's not a wide spread issue.

    That's strange for an LCD panel. Usually I only see it on Samsung's amoled screens.

    LCD isn't nearly as bad as OLED in terms of burn-in, but it can happen. It's usually temporary though. If it keeps happening try giving your screen a rest. If you're in a convo occasionally switch to other apps, turning down the brightness or turning off the screen from time to time. 30 minutes doesn't seem like a lot of time though, so maybe there is a hardware issue with your phone that's making it more susceptible

    I just shouldn't have to switch apps or change screens ya know? And sending it to LG is a no. I'm not gonna go without a phone for a month. I work at a local computer place and we also repair phones. So when they become available from the seller we use, I'll just get a new digitizer and screen.

    So, I ordered a new LCD and digitizer and replaced them on my V10. Burn in is gone completely. Must have been a faulty LCD before.

    Cool deal... Curious where do you buy replacement parts? One of the reasons I got an LG phone was because it can be taken apart and repaired. Nothing is glued, adhered or bonded together.
