Lenovo y700 backlight bleed

Q: Lenovo y700 backlight bleed

Hello, this is my first post here! I just bought a Lenovo Y700 today, and I'm very impressed with it so far. However there's just one thing bothering me: backlight bleeding. I've never owned anything with an IPS display before, so I'm not sure if this is normal or not. Could you please tell me if this is acceptable or not? Does it get worse with time or stay the same? I read that it's normal for IPS displays to an extent. Is that true?Here are some pics: http://imgur.com/a/rAHFvThe one on the bottom worries me a bit.Thanks in advance!

Hi Interlope,

Welcome to the Community Forums,
I was not able to open http://imgur.com/a/rAHFvSeems your issue might be similar to this thread . Check on the image provded .On the sample image glow seems to appear on different angles too.
- Link to images
- Link to images
"IPS glow should only be apparent at extreme viewing angles in very dark images or black screens. If it is visible from head on and always in the same spots, it's not IPS glow, it's backlight bleed " .
In normal IPS display, such glow usually is mimimal and be lesser than an inch.
Else call in tech support for repair especially if return is not an option.

Hope this helped you in your decision.

Hello, everyone! I just received my new Lenovo Y700, and overall, I love it!But there is a thing that's bugging me: backlight bleed/ips glare. While working on the laptop, or even watching movies (watched Star Trek Beyond), it doesn't seem to bother me, I don't really notice it. But if if there is a full black screen and i stare at it, yeah. I can see the darn bleed. Is this much bleed normal? Should I return it and get another one (hopefully I will be more lucky)? Or do ALL of the IPS panels out there have such issues, and i better stick with this one? I am attaching screenshots taken in full darkness, at 100% brightness. (N.B., in reality it doesn't look SO bad as on camera, idk why; also, if i set it to 75% brightness its A LOT less visible). One more thing: Can any of you that have this model attach some pictures under the same conditions, so I can at least compare?  Thanks a million!

Hello community! I just wanted to share with you this problem I'm having and everyone is familiar with it, the issue here is that it's actually NOT the panel that it's faulty but the mount itself!  Please check out this video that I made that shows when the panel is unmounted, then I proceed to slide the panel up (mounted) and let it slide back down with gravity.I used some video effect to darken the scene so it's better noticeable. (though please notice filming backlight bleeding it's hard).Clearly the mount does not perfectly agree with the panel shape, so it is bent a little thus introducing backlight bleeding, and when I bend the mount (with panel mounted) slightly on the upper right and left sides to my direction like this "(", the bleeding is almost completely gone, so it seems that the mount is not straight but bend slight backwards like this ")" so I have to make it straight with my hands. What I have done to try and fix this is to put two folded pieces of paper on those sides as to try to straigthen the panel but that only slightly fixes the problem and I'm not too comfortable having those there either. (and I have already broken one of the teeny tiny hinges of the bottom plastic cover and also had to skip the middle screw for the panel because, with the papers, it introduced another bleeding on the bottom, so it's only screwed on the sides but not too tight either, just to hold it in place) What other possible solution do you guys see to this? (I... Read more

It's really hard to see it in the video by the way (but it is better if you watch it on fullscreen and 1080p), just trust me that when the panel is not mounted, there is barely any bleeding, just IPS glow. If you want me to upload the raw video I can do that aswell.

I've just bought a brand new Omen 17 with a 4k screen and replaced it once due to obvious backlight bleed.  The replacement laptop still has pretty obvious backlight bleed.  Do all HP Omen laptops just have this as part of a poor design and therefore should I just get a refund or have I just been unlucky and received two duff items?

Hi, I've had my laptop for just a couple of weeks and have noticed that there is a yellowish corner of the screen. It is only apparent with a black screen. I have a theory that there is extra pressure in the right corner because that's where the thinkpad logo and red light are on the backside.  Anyway, it doesn't bother me; I'm just worried that it might get worse progessively.  I don't really want to have to send it back to China and wait for repairs. But want to go ahead fix it while under warranty if there is a possibility that it will get worse.  ?Is this an acceptable amount of bleeding? (note: the only bleed is in the top right corner. It's definitely bleed because it goes away when I bend the screen ever so slightly. Everything else is glare. )

This laptop is a Best Buy Blue Label, configured for sale exclusively by Best Buy.   The price is right for the included features, but we're very disappointed in HP's QA measures. This unit should never have made it out of the factory. Right out of the box, the display suffers from severe backlight bleeding in both lower corners of the display, so obvious that it's plain for anyone to see. Screen resolution may be 1920 x 1080 Full HD, but Netflix and Amazon HD videos are not as sharp or as bright as the same videos at the same resolution on my 3 year-old 15.4" MacBook Pro Retina Display. Backlit keyboard is either off or on, and on is far too bright, with bright light leaking around the chiclet keys, clearly visable and distracting. We want to like this computer.  We're tempted to simply exchange it for another.  In addition to our MacBook, we have a 13" HP Pavilion dv3510nr bought in 2009 that has been faultless.  But with our new HP Envy demonstrating such an obvious flaw in the display, we wonder what hidden flaws might manifest themselves weeks or months from now if we were to purchase another. This purchase represents a perfect example of why one shouldn't make a purchase of this type from an exclusively online seller. At least, with Best Buy we have a big box store where we can return it.

Yours is far better. Mine had more bleeding than this. Area to watch for is bottom left. Reported to Premier support. Waited three weeks, LCD was back-ordered, two times panels replaced, bleeding issued persisted. Now they are sending me new replacement. No point in calling for this, as my problem got worse. The replaced LCD part had stuck pixels. If the bleeding is affecting you and if you are within the return window return the laptop for refund/replacement. I am past 30 day return window, good thing about Premier Support is they escalated and they are sending me a new replacement unit.

I just purchased a yoga 710 11.6" model and the first one had a good amount of backlight bleed coming through on three corners. Enough that I went in for an exchange. My second unit looks much better but still has a bit of bleeding in the lower left corner. Not really visible in normal tasks, but I notice it on boot up and any dark images/videos especially when viewed in a dark room. Of course it lessens with brightness, but is still there.  Is this acceptable or should I have it exchanged/replaced? I'd hate to do an exchange and get an even worse unit in return. This one isn't thaaaat bad, but I still notice it. The image is also a bit exaggerated from the camera and doesn't look as bad in person. Opinions?

Since I got my laptop there has been a problem with screen backlight bleed in the bottom left-hand corner of the display. It is clearly noticeable when in a dark environment, showing dark content on the screen or when the screen brightness is turned up high, however, it is not that noticeable in normal use. Lenovo has offered a repair but I am interested in hearing whether people think this is worth it. I am worried that after the inconevience of backing up all my data and sending my laptop away, the repair will not make much difference to the issue, as it affects nearly all laptops so some degree. Does anyone have any experience with getting this kind of issue repaired and if so was it worth it?

Hi all, I've been having problems with backlight bleed on my 720s 13" (i7 8th gen, UHD Glossy display) that I bought directly from Lenovo. There's a "moderate amount" of bleeding from the top and bottom corners on the left side of the machine. I called Lenovo and they sent me a replacement within a few days, but the replacement machine was unfortunately even worse. I'm curious if this is a well-known issue with QC on IdeaPad machines with IPS displays right now? I feel like getting two bad units can't just be bad luck... Also, will Lenovo CS send me another (3rd total) unit if I send one of these back? I can't go without a laptop because of work, but I really don't want to be stuck with this issue on a brand new laptop with a "premium" display. Thanks in advance!

Hello all,just a quick enquiry to figure out if I have to send the laptop in for repairs: Since yesterday my display remains illuminated in the right hand corner after the laptop is switched off (see picture).I've taken out the battery to cut the power supply (no use, it has a second internal battery) and rebooted but that didn't affect this issue. When the laptop is turned on the screen works perfectly fine. I assume the hardware is broken - has anybody experienced something similar? I can't find any online support by Lenovo (submitting tickets is currently offline). Grateful for any advice! EDIT: I googled a bit more - it's a backlight bleed. An issue known for T450s, possibly caused by humidity. Does anybody have some ideas for fixes, or is replacement the only option?
