Lenovo Ideapad 720S Color Calibration - Yellow

Q: Lenovo Ideapad 720S Color Calibration - Yellow

Hello, I have recently purchased Lenovo 720S-14IKB (Type 81BD). The display color however are terrible. The yellow is the worse overall. There is a yellowish tint on the display. I have updated the BIOS and the power management drivers as suggest from other Yoga topics here from the forum. I have tried to calibrate the display from the Windows color calibration tool and I also tried a custom icc profile. Nothing seems to correct the display. Any suggestions how this can be fixed ?

I have just purchased a Lenovo G50-45 Laptop. I do a lot of image editiong where color rendition is important. I notice right out of the box that it's color display was very cold in color temperature. I tryed to adjust the color calibration through the interal display functions with very little success. I then used a Spyder Color calibration sensor and was able to get a little closer to a properly calibrated display but it is still very cool in color and frankly very unsatisfactory. Is there a fix? A driver? Thanks

Hello everyone,How do I calibrate the colors of my screen, so they're more accurate to the average phone/ laptop/ tablet in 2018?I've discovered some time ago that the colors are a little bit off with most people and the photos that I post on social media look completely different on most screens.This is not related to Photoshop Lightroom as far as I'm aware, but rather with the laptop defaults themselves.How do I fix this or does anyone have any pointers?Thanks in advance,A Lenovo Y50 user

Hi, I am writing here because i am concerned by an issue that happened to me today. I came home from school where i was working on my laptop, then once i got home i picked my laptop to work again, but i instantly noticed a big crack on my screen going from the top, near the camera, spreading until it reaches the bottom left of the screen. I decided to call the warranty service from lenovo and explained them the situation, but the customer service representative told me that the warranty doesn't cover physical damage and and that i had to send them the computer so a technician decides whether it is my fault or not... I am very concerned by the situation because i am sure that that crack isn't the result of a bad usage of the product from me, i always take care of it and i have it since almost 2 months.  Considering that, i just wanted to know if something similar happened to other people here and what did the technicians decide ? Thanks for your help

I recently bought a 720s which is supposed to be a semi-pro laptop and pretty good for gaming. But I can't even play agar.io without it lagging and hacking. There's no problem to use an IPad or my old MacBook, so there's nothing wrong with the network. Must be something wrong with this computer, right? Should I just return it?

Hello, I am posting on behalf of my mom. Similar to some complaints of the Yoga Series her IdeaPad 720s screen is beginning to separate from the panel. Because I seldom ever use her laptop I've not really noticed. While trying to figure out an issue shes been having with some work software (electronic health records), I noticed that the bottom of the panel (in between the rubber seal and hinge area) is slightly exposed and is showing some of the innards of the laptop. She doesn't have the greatest eye sight, so she hasn't noticed. Is anyone else having these issues? Is there a fix or am I going to have to RMA the unit? She's only had the unit for about a month and a half.

Hi, I'm looking at buying this laptop, but i came across a few questions: 1) Can this laptop support up to 32gb RAM as it is mentioned in some youtube reviews? 2) Can this laptop support video through the USB-C port as well, or just data? I'm looking at connecting 2 portable USB-C monitors, 1 through the Thunderbolt port and the other through the normal USB-C port. 3) Is the Thunderbolt port 2 lanes or 4? 4) Is this 4k screen anti-glare as well? 5) How would this 4k screen work connected to 2 FHD portable monitors, in terms of resolution? 6) Is this 4k screen suffering from backlight bleeding as some reviews suggest? Thanks in advance.

A:Lenovo Ideapad 720s 15IKB Touch 4K - specs

Answers to some of your questions: 1) Yes, it supports up to 32GB RAM, however you would need two 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM modules, which are rather expensive.2) I can confirm, that one USB-C port supports ThunderBolt 3 and DisplayPort 1.2a connection.4) No, it's a glossy panel.6) Most of IPS screens suffers from backlit bleeding problem. It's mostly depends on unit, which you've receive.

Hey folks. I do a lot of color-related work on my notebook, but am short of actually getting really high end calibration software. Was thinking you might be able to help...

Just got my AW 15 and am matching it against my 2012 M17x. It seems as though the screen is plenty good and can reproduce the colors perfectly, but it's the balance between the colors I can't seem to get right (sky is blue, ground is too yellow. Ground is right, sky is too red, etc.) with the super limited Intel color display adjustments.

Can you recommend any sort of free software that will allow me to set much finer color controls, save profiles, etc.?

Hi everybody- newbie here, but seems good place to get info on my vista64 problem. Everything seems to work fine on my new Vista64 system, except for my old Blue Eye pro software and calibrator, which, according to LaCie, won't work in 64 bit. I am a photographer working with CS3, and need to be sure my monitor (LaCie 320) accurately displays colors, contrast, black/white points, etc. Some old info indicates that Blue Eye is a re brand of Eyeone, which does 64 bit environment(?). Can I buy different software only, or am I going to have to buy a compleely new calibration system. Or is this really necessary, since Vista does not use old ICC profile system? Haven't played around with Vista color management settings yet, but would appreciate input. Sorry if this is long and rambling.

A:Vista64 & color calibration

Long and rambling is good...trust me on that

I gave up trying to calibrate colour settings with the Samsung SyncMaster 206BW LCD monitor. Apparently I will have to deal with LCD intrinsic problems and I can;t seem to turn off teh SAMSUNG dynamic brightness settings it chooses to do.

I was browsing a PC magazine in a shop today that mentioned something about Vista colour calibration tools (or was it charts) being available on the Microsoft website and a utility to download to assist in tweaking colour settings on monitors and calibrating with scanners and photo editing software.

But I also remember reading that they recommend buy Vista compatable colour calibration tools...of which I'm not willing to go there just yet. I'm just a stingy bugga and not a pro photographer.

I would appreciate getting back to this thread should you manage to colour calibrate.

Nvidia and ATI apparently have additional utilities on their respective websites.

I recently purchased an XPS15 for my photography business. This laptop was highly recommended for photo editing due to the high resolution screen and processing power.  However the screen colors are so over saturated that I am unable to use this laptop for photo editing.
Can someone please advise me how to calibrate the screen colors to commercial print standards. 

A:XPS15 Color Calibration

You can right click on the desktop and in the menu click the Dell Premiere Color option. This will give you different preset options such as AdobeRGB, Vibrant (Full), sRGB, and many more. The default setting is vibrant which does produce the oversaturated colors you are seeing. Switching to AdobeRGB should provide you with the appropriate colors for photo editing. However note that the display has a more blue white than a natural white. 
If the AdobeRGB preset or other presets do not meet your needs you can open up the application completely and change color settings within that application.

How do I prevent my computer from switching my calibration to something else?
