A burn mark is created when we leave our television on for a long time (or consistantly) with the same image on without moving. Basically, we are playing a game and then decide to run to the store for a couple of hours without shutting off the television or console. This can cause burn-in.

 

Or we can get it when a game we are playing has a compass or radar in the corner of the screen that is constantly active.

 

However newer televisions have been made that would reduce the effect. But I would still recommend that if we do leave our game on, to at least turn off the television. Of course leaving our game on while away may be reduce the life expectancy of our PS3s...

 

I don't think that we can get rid of the burn-in. But if we play tons of games with permanent images in a corner (or whereever) we will be able to blur it.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

I concur with what Conrad above has said.

 

To the OP, that's some burn-in mark & such an odd shape too, do you have any idea what caused it?
