    For LCD screens the issue is known as "image persistence" because the effects are not permanent.

    You can try turning of the monitor for an extended period (hours to days), set your wallpaper to solid white, or leave your screen saver on for an extended period (preferably one with multiple colors extending to all areas of the screen).

    Yeah, I left my screen active for an extended period of time and had some weird lines on it from my Stickies. After a couple days, they disappeared.
