    The bottom right corner of my screen has screen burn. Like it looks like a image was burned in to it. I tryed restarting it and it still doesnt get fixed. I was thinking of replacing the screen would that fix it? Everything else works fine but the bottom right part has the burnt image. Like during the lock screen the bottom right corner is really bright and the image is burned.

    Pics?
    Never heard of anything like this before. Especially on something that isn't a plasma display.

    Try taking to the genius bar or something.

    wow, never seen that before. If it's still in warranty just call up an apple store and make an appointment, preferably before the 19th when there will be no way you would get in.

    Looks like a pressure mark to me. Glad they replaced it, see no fault of yours for its occurance.

    APPLE BE PRAISED!
