How long does it take (for the average LCD monitor) before an image will become burnt into the screen, I believe the proper term is actually LCD Image Persistence.

Lets assume the same image is left on the screen the whole entire time.

A lot depends on the quality of the monitor. Theoretically image persistence shouldn't happen on an LCD as it used to do on a CRT. But it does happen and manufactures are not sure why.

However, unlike CRT burn-in it is easily reversable by leaving the monitor turned off for a period of time or displaying a pure white screen for a period. This allows the liquid crystals to relax and return to their tranparent state.
