I have a dell screen and the screen got an image burn.
Is there any way to get rid of or reduce the burn?

Are you talking old CRT or LCD?

I was not aware that this could be a problem with LCDs but apparently it can (called screen persistence).

Some tips from http://compreviews.about.com/od/monitors/a/LCDBurnIn.htm:

1. Turn off the monitor for extended periods of time. It can be as little as several hours or it could be as long as several days.
2. Use a screen saver with a rotating image and run it for extended periods of time. The rotating color palette should help remove the persistent image but it could take a long time.
3. Run the screen with a single solid color or bright white for an extended period of time. This will cause all of the crystals to be reset at a single color setting and should erase any previous image persistence.

Pretty sure??? The physical difference between LCD and CRT is huge.

A crt is very heavy, has a glass front and is 30 or more cm from front to rear.

An LCD screen is light and is rarely more than about 5cm front to rear.

What form does the image burn take, i.e. what do you actually see?
