OLED TV burn-in is unavoidable... (Off-Topic)

A strange blob in the middle of screen. This one is inexplicable to me.


A smear of various reticles?


Possible. Its location make it more likely to be noticed, but its nature kind of doesn't. It looks like a cloud. There are no distinct lines.


i have something similar on a monitor (not OLED), and I'm pretty sure it comes from contact at some point.

I don't think that's it. I never touch the screen except to clean it maybe once a year and no one has been here who would touch it. That is kind of a pet peeve, too. I have some work colleagues who seem to think I can't see where they're pointing unless they're pressing the screen so hard it deforms.


It's only noticeable when the monitor is off.

Yeah, that sounds like something external to me. What I'm talking about could only been seen when red and yellow test screens were displayed.

I totally blame you for all of this, BTW. The Apple TV screensaver on your OLED was what caught my fancy to begin with. I'd never seen anything like it.
