I have a Redmi 10 Pro phone. There is an image of Google Maps that remains permanently behind any image in front, no matter the application. That image is about 90% fade from a normal image. It does not appear on a screenshot action.

Restarting or shutting down does not help. Also changing the background image does not help.

Any suggestion on how I can erase that image?

  • Check whether toggling PiP on Google Maps helps or not.

  • If the Google Maps ghost image remains even after a reboot then it is a ghost image cause by AMOLED burn-in. This is because that image was shows for a very long time and brighter pixels age faster (do you use the phone often for navigation?). This is a physical effect that can not be reversed, except by replacing the screen.

  • Especially that the Google Maps image is not visible on a screenshot is a clear indicator for an OLED burn-in problem. See also android.stackexchange.com/q/216169/2241 and android.stackexchange.com/q/249380/2241
