Can you remove the imsge of another scene bleeding into the viewing scene?

Asked by: JaymeBrewington
If a fixed image displays on the TV screen for a long period of time, it will be imprinted and become a permanent disfigurement on the screen. This is “image burn” or “burn-in” and can not be removed. ^AC
