Haven't heard anything from anybody else, but I am asking, does anybody else have the "htc" logo Burned into there screen. I've only had the phone for about 3 months. When I reboot the phone I
Can see the burn in, below the illuminated htc logo. The burn in is not where it should be. I will try
To take a pic but it is very faint.

Nope, never heard of it. Burn in is not really a problem with lcd screens. Can you see it anywhere else besides the boot up screen? If there is actually a logo burned in you would be able to see it regardless of what is being displayed on the screen (obviously being more visible on a solid, light colored background).

Yes I can see it on any window or screen I have. Just a thought, I wonder if it is the zagg screen
protector? no matter I can see it. Looked at two other tbolts at Verizon store today and did not see any burn in. three associates looked it over and they said it was the first they had seen.

Yes they are. That is hilarious. I would say I did that on purpose, but I did not. Funny with all this technology a pencil and paper still serves it's purpose. What a pain, but will likely get a replacement.

Correct, and LCD burn in is usually temporary, unlike plasma burn in. a bright white screen usually takes care of it. So OP, try that. Set your background to solid white, turn the brightness way up, and leave your screen on for a couple hours this way and see if that fixes it. If not, then replace it.

Or what Jax said is a good idea. But if ur like me and have few scratches or minor defects to phone just get it replaced and get a new one in exchange.

Yeah I found the files I need to un-root over at Android police. Any other suggestions before I bring this in?

Make sure radio and rom are stock. If not to sure search on the fourms. If not be like me walk into Verizon "check out" the thunderbolt specs make sure its the same and gone about your business

I am using polar clock live wallpaper right now with the screen on. i'm still curious to see if it is the zagg screen protector. Maybe it got hot and imprinted with the adhesive. Not really looking forward to un rooting and having a sense ROM from the time I get the new phone from Verizon till I get home and root and flash back to cm7. This ROM even with the bugs totally rocks.

The screen burn in is impossible to fix. Nothing you do will fix it.. once it's there it's there and will not go away no matter what you do. It is actually quite common on these kind of displays. It's not the screen protector. Your best bet is to get a replacement.

No. the only place I can think of that this came from is the boot image. White screen green HTC symbol. When I boot though, the HTC symbol is above the burn in. very strange.
