Not sure why this happened, but I had a conversation for 50 minutes and then realised some weird white streaks on the screen after I hung up. The streaks are now gone (gladly), it seems like the screen was overheating or something ??

What is the cause of this anomaly ?


This seems to happen every time I make a phone call ! The white streaks appear and start fading over time. Am I the only one with this problem ?

**EDIT 2 **

Still have this problem but no permanent marks as of now. It's just a weird phenomenon that happens every time I receive a call.

Example of this (recreation) :

  • Try this image retention test: marco.org/rmbp-irtest.html – Flavin Nov 17 '13 at 16:15
  • @Flavin What is that supposed to do ? – Render Nov 17 '13 at 19:12
  • It is a test for image retention. You leave the checkerboard pattern up for some time, then flip to gray. If your screen has image retention problems, there will be a remnant of the checkerboard pattern visible on the gray screen. (Make sure you don't stare at the checkerboard, though, because your eyes certainly have an image retention problem.) – Flavin Nov 18 '13 at 0:57
  • @Flavin Thank you but I already know I have the problem, as described by the problem above. – Render Dec 3 '13 at 9:29
