Samsung seems to think LCD's *do* have a burn-in problem.  They feel
strongly enough about this that they exclude burn-in damage from their
warranty.  (Noticed in the non-instruction book with a Syncmaster
305T.)

Their instructions for reducing the effects of burn-in damage is to
cycle the display through the 3 primary colors till the damage is no
longer noticeable.

As a hack, I'd try to run "xsetroot -solid [red|green|blue]" in a
continuous loop pausing for, say, a minute so as to not drive the
console user too crazy.
