I have a growing issue my with Acer predator XB271HU where bright images are causing a ghosting (or temporary burn-in) effect in my monitor. Below is an image showing this problem; note the ghosting look is not a software/blur/transparent issue - that ghosting is actually in the monitor itself (the IPS) and it takes minutes to fade away. Note it only takes a minute or two for a ghosted image to "embed" itself.
I contacted Acer support and did a hard reset of the monitor (unplug all and hold power for 30 seconds) and it appeared to solve the issue at that time, however a day later, my monitor was doing the exact same thing and now a hard reset does not solve the issue.
Now that I've switched over to a completely dark background, whenever I do have a light background window come up (e.g. explorer or notepad) and if I have focus on it for a few minutes, when I switch back to the dark background, as seen in the image, the ghost of the light background takes minutes to fade.
Has anyone encountered this problem, and how can one fix it?
