Hi,

I have a 3 screen setup, my main 30" monitor in the middle and 2x LG 23EA63 monitors each side. One of the LG monitors seems to developed some sort of screen burn/image retention. I can see a faint image of Skype and the taskbar that goes about a third of the way along from the left. I've swapped the monitors around to ensure it wasn't a cable issue but I get the same thing on the same monitor. It's weird because it disappeared yesterday for about 15 mins them came back, then it was a 'screen burn' of Winamp instead of Skype.

Is there a way this can be fixed or does it need to be replaced?

Hmmm... try unplugging the suspect monitor input and see if any image is there. Sounds like a ghost. Or plug into a settop DVD/BR player and check.

I plugged in an old TV tuner box and it showed the same image ghost... BUT I went into the other room due to the phone ringing. After about 30 minutes on the phone I came back and there was just that fuzzy static you get like on an untuned TV because I had unplugged the ariel just before the phone rang. After unplugging the HDMI cable from box and the input automatically switching back to the DVI connection I noticed the ghosting had disappeared. The fuzzy static that was on the screen seems to have cleared image ghost. So you actually led me to a fix!

Can't thank you enough.
