X230T display pale and yellow-ish after change

Q: X230T display pale and yellow-ish after change

Hi community! My X230T display was changed. The new one looks to me like it has a yellow bias (the X230T-display was always a little bit warm-white, but not so much I think). Furthermore the maximum brightness seems to be less than with the old display. Here a comparison between a white paper at cloudy daylight and the white of the screen at maximum brightness: It is said that for the X230T there is only one panel manufacturer, so it should not be a question of where the replacement part was produced. Does anybody have similar experiences? Would another change improve the situation? Thanks!Spot

I was wondering if this model is capable of displaying UHD/4k on the external monitor.To my knowledge this computer has Intel HD graphics 4000 but I don't know if it can handle UHD.Furthermore, I would like to ask what version the display port is since ver 1.2 is required to view UHD at 60hz.Let me know if there are any other things to consider to solve this problem.Thanks

you can't view the UHD at 60 hz, only at 30 hz. https://www.thinkscopes.com/2014/08/10/thinkpad-compatibility-with-4k-lcd-thinkvision-pro2840m/This is an old list that i generated in regards to the Intel HD 3000 and 4000 compatibility with the UHD resolution.

OK, my monitor broke so I grabbed the one I was using at work and conected it to my computer....now life is yellow. I am running an e-machine, windows95. This monitor is an IBM 6546, it worked great on my machine at the office. I downloaded and set everything up, tried to adjust the coloring, but everything is still yellow. I have tried everything from 16bit to true color....mo good. Nothing seems to help and it is really starting to bother my eyes. I tried the IBM page, but they wont get back to me....what do you think? Please help before I go blind, or am forced to hook up a 10inch monitor. Thanks

A:yellow display????

This question should have been posted in Hardware as it probably would have received a quick response there. You stated that you downloaded and set it up. Are you sure you have the drivers for your video card to support the monitor? Have you checked your cable to make sure that it is in all the way and no pins are bent/broken? Checked the Device Manager to see if any comflicts are present or that the monitor is not listed as the wrong one? If conflicts/listed wrong, delete it and reload the drivers(or just have windows do it).

I'm trying to find a way to change the default yellow colour (you can see what I mean here http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/jpboyrox/grottyyellow.jpg ) to white (or anything else). For some reason my computer seems to change the colour randomly and I really hate it. About 5 mins ago it was white but then after a reboot it changed back to this colour. Any thoughts? I doubt it's too hard to fix

That image looks like your in classic mode. Go to display properties \ appearance \ color scheme and make the change there.

Guys, just received a Yoga 920 FHD (1920x1080) model today. As soon as I booted it up I noticed the display wasn't very bright, and also it has a brown / yellow tint to it. I already have two other Lenovo machines, a Yoga 2 Pro and a thinkpad Yoga 12 S1 and the are both far brighter and "whiter" I have checked every setting there is and can't figure out what the issue is. Do these models just have a really poor display? Just thought I'd ask before instigating a return as it's no use for me they way it currently is. Here's a comparison against the Yoga 2 Pro which is 4 years old now. brightness at 100% and all Intel graphics settings at default. Thanks - Keith

I have an old Dell Dimension (I know but it's a great kids web surfer) that hangs up on startup. The on/off button stays a solid yellow and the monitor does not receive a signal of any kind. I have reset bios, redid cabling connections, reseated video card and mem sticks.

I'm thinking its a faulty video card but want advice before investing anything into it. Does the video card make sense? Are there other troubleshooting steps I should take before replacing the card.

How could this be? I tried to adjust the monitor's settings (contrast, brightness and color) but it wont work. I tried also checked the port of the video and the cable, tighten it and somehow it works! But sometimes, the monitor/display turns to yellow again..What should i do? PLease help..


A:Monitor/Display turns to yellow

If your video card is an addon card plugged into your computer's motherboard it may have become loose inside. (ie you may need to remount the internal video card securely)

If you video card is onboard, ie part of the main internal motherboard. I would suspect that one of the pins, either on the motherboard video connector, or on the monitor, has been pushed in slightly. (not creaing proper contact)

Otherwise it could just be a faulty monitor

Hi everyone,
I bought in January a new Thinkpad Yoga 260 and am very happy with it. But in the last weeks i recognized some yellow stains or clouds on my display. I checked it also in the Bios and on a other Os and they are still recognizable. They are only visible on a horizontal line and they aren?t fix, because someday they are more intense on the left side and on another day more on the right side.
The strange thing is also that when I clean my display, they fade away and after some time they come back.
Therefore I would like to ask here what the issue could be.
Thanks and Greetings,

On my yoga 3, the white is like warm colour and not cold white colour.I had other laptops and this is the first time I see this yellowish display, and it is annoying.I have disabled the auto display brightness.I read about the yoga 2 having the same problem, that was corrected by an update of bios and energy management driver.

I have one for you...
I've tried all of the normal troubleshooting steps: cable check and replace. Tested monitor on another computer that is known to be working itself and the monitor is fine on the other computer as well as with its logo and menu system. Checked video card settings and installed a new video card.
The computer did have a virus that I was able to remove (this is something I do on a usual basis.); it even had two rootkits found and removed with the help of Malwarebytes Antimalware.
The video was working fine after these viruses were removed. Then, the next day or two it began having a yellow-greenish tint to the screen.
My next attempt will be to try and reseat the Processor and if that doesn't work, try resetting the BIOS. I have tried installing an update to the BIOS already.
By the way; The tint also shows up during the POST. So, it doesn't have to do with Windows software or drivers.
I've been in the IT industry for 15 years and do not remember running across this particular problem before that didn't involve a bad monitor or video card. I'm a bit stumpt at this point, uless reseating the processor does it - seems odd.
Anyone think of something else?
Monitor: LG W2240T (It was originally connected with VGA and now with DVI through the V.Card)

Hey Lenovo Boards, I've had my otherwise excellent T470 for a little over a year now. Lately, though (not sure precisely how long), this blotch of yellow and purple has appeared in the bottom-left corner of the display and doesn't go away. It's especially noticeable on a white background. It's getting bothersome. I've attached three pictures here. What do you think it is? I got the nice 3 year warranty with accidental damage and everything, so I'm pretty sure I'd be alright if I took it to the local Lenovo repair center. But all the same, I'm wondering if any of you recognize the issue.  Thanks in advance, and if you need any more info from me, don't hesitate to ask!    

A:T470 - Yellow-Purple Blotch in Corner of Display (IPS 1920x1080)

That is certainly panel damage.  It will need to be replaced.  Most of the time, that kind of problem is due to physical damage (pressure), but with accidental damage coverage, it doesn't matter.  Call support; in U.S., it is 1-800-426-7378.

Hi everyone, thanks for looking.
Im running into a particular problem that I cant seem to find the reasons or the settings.

I watch HBO GO (i have a valid subscription) on my Windows 7 Home laptop and use an HDMI cable to connect my TV.

Scenerio 1:
If I leave the close the lid power option on hibernate, I must leave the laptop open and, when I connect the HDMI the TV, it becomes my monitor and I view as the monitor and watch anything full screen no problem.

Scenerio 2:
I change the power option on the lid close to "do nothing". When the HDMI cable is hooked up, if the laptop is open it uses the laptop display, if its closed it displays through the HDMI/TV. This is perfect and exactly what I want.
I can watch as the monitor no problem HOWEVER, if I choose full screen, I get gray borders and the "Full Screen" is not full and just centered.

I can not for the life of me figure out why and Im going crazy.
Does anyone know why the power option would have an effect on this and what settings I could change?

Many Thanks in Advance!!!


A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

Just bought a new Cisco e1200 router last week. When i first hooked it up, it was giving me extremely low (significantly lower than my old router) downloading speeds. After switching the networking mode from "mixed' to "Wireless-G only", the speeds went back to normal. I tried "Wireless-N only", but it didn't work after that. Seemingly, my computer does not work with Wirless-N?

It's been running okay now, but 2 things happen occasionally:

When playing a game, I experience lag for a period of 5 minutes, or sometimes 20 minutes. It goes away on its own. Never happened with my old router.
When surfing the internet, pages will refuse to load. The connection bars shown at the bottom right hand corner of my computer display a yellow triangle with an exclamation point. This goes away on its own after about 4-5 minutes.

These problems come randomly every 3-4 or days, maybe a bit longer. Is there any way I can fix these issues?

Thank You to anyone who answers!

The way I have change cursors is to treat them like a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the original cursor with a .bak in the name and then copy and paste the custom cursor with the original cursor's name into C:\Windows\Cursors folder. Take a look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information

Then you will need to reboot.

Just bought a new Cisco e1200 router about 1.5 months ago. When I first hooked it up, it was giving me EXTREMELY low download speeds (only on wireless, not while connected through ethernet). After switching the networking mode from "mixed' to "Wireless-G only", the speeds went back to normal. This is just info that might help you determine source of this problem:

My internet at times refuses to work, and the connection bars in the task bar display a yellow triangle with an exclamation point inside it. This goes away when I unplug the router from the power and replug it.

I took a screenshot of "ipconfig /all" during, and after the problem. Also, does the problem have anything to do with me setting the networking mode to Wirless-G only? What should I have it set to?

Hi, on hindsight I should have asked this question at this forum first. But I was tired from doing all the researching and bit on an old x230 convertible laptop off ebay that supposedly has core i7 3520M, 4gb of ram, and 160gb ssd. It has been upgraded to windows 10. It has not arrived yet. At around $200, it seemed to me like a steal for the specs. I do think that these specs were user-upgraded and not factory-made so I cannot speak for the quality.I read rave reviews about this device, however, most were from several years ago. I never owed a device with this specs or a touchscreen laptop for that matter so I do not really know what to expect.I guess I will start out to see if anyone still second this as a solid convertible laptop in today's standard. Does windows 10 run well on it? Seem like a lot of people run into problems when upgrading to windows 10? Is there anything special about the touchscreen or is it just obsolete technology nowadays? I mean the most resource intensive thing I will do on this laptop is just playing some online flash games so I think it is way less than what it is capable of. I was just looking for a laptop that is upgradable and can stay relevant for a long time so did I make the right call? Any feedbacks are appreciated!

Hello Everyone, I recently dropped my x230T in my bag and although it and the hard drive was fine, I have noticed the fan goes to full speed whenever I boot the laptop or do anything, regardless of usage. The only thing that can calm it down is lenovo power manager when it boots in Windows but only barely. Any slightly cpu intesive task, the fan goes back to full speed. Any other OS, such as linux Mint, the fan will continue at full speed.  Has anyone encountered this issue before or has any advice on how to further diagnose the issue?  Kindly Appreciated,Adam

My X230 table fell on it side while a wireless mouse receiver was installed and damaged the usb port and knocked the chip behind  it out of place on the main board, I have attached a picture. Does anyone have a picture of the chip or know the name? I am trying to locate it to fix my machine.

Hello people of the Lenovo forums. A friend of mine just gave me his Lenovo x230t, it looks like he tried formating it and handing it over to me but he didn't install all the drivers or what not. The laptop itself is from France (french keyboard) and I think when he installed the windows it was in french as well, I changed the setting and made it so everything is in english but when I installed the Lenovo System Update app it installed it in french and I cannot change it, same goes for Realtek. I went through this websites find and recommed me stuff to install, and it did install all the intel drivers and a bios update also I myself installed the driver that activates the tablet keys (screen rotate, task manager). My question is should I just clean install all over again? I got the windows key here so should I just reinstall the whole PC? its new so I got nothing important on it. If so, how should I go about it? I don't have the windows disk or any other driver disk. Another issue is that I cannot use my fingers on the touch screen, it only works with the stylus. I've seen people online scrolling through web pages and PDF using their fingers in touch, also using some other cool functions like opening all the curret apps in a scroll by pressing 4 fingers against the screen. Do I need to install a certain driver to do it? if so where? Sorry for writing so much and thank you for taking the time and reading it.I apologize if I broke an...

A:Some help with an x230t windows 10

Hello and welcome,
I'd be inclined to do a clean install, followed by System Update.  Since Win 10 has already been activated on that machine you likely won't need the key.
You can download Win 10 direct from Microsoft.  I haven't looked at the MS tool lately and don't know if the download varies by version (Home, Pro, ...) but if it does pick the one that matches your key.

That kind of error is almost certainly the panel.

Hello all. My X230T screen had dead pixels, and laptop was under warranty, lenovo came and changed it.but only a few months after my screen started doing that depending of the inclination. if I move it, it change the "band" color, and on some position, it works OK.  I found on aliexpress replacement panels for 50$. Before buying it, I have few questions. 1) My screen has scratches. Is the panel I will buy will directly replace the one that is there, or is there a "glass" in front that I should replace at the same time, or is it the touchscreen ?I imagine there is a protective glass in front because there is the "lenovo" sign showed for instance and it's not present on the panel, and it seems to be same part. To said it other way (sorry for my english), when I put my finger on the screen, do I touch directly the panel (that will be replaced) or is there any sort of covering glass in front? 2) I think some screen problem like this can be due to a faulty cable, but from what I read the problem would be on whole screen, not only on a line like it is now. Can anyone confirm this ? 3) If indeed it's the panel that is defective, in this kind of situation is it possible to "fix" the panel, like I don't know, putting something to "push" on the false contact so the contact stays ?  4) My panel is LP125WH2-SLB3. I'll replace it with LP125WH2-SLT2. Seems the same to me. Or any other model to recommend that would be still IPS (I found lot of "c... Read more

My ThinkPad X230tSuddenly stopped working on battery and works only on charger plugged in. I thought the problem was with the batter so I brought a replacement. I replaced the battery with the new one, but it didn't work, so I thought the battery was empty. I connected the charger and charged the batter full for an hour or so till it was 100% charged, yet, when I unplugged the charger the laptop was dead. What could be the problem?

Dear all,after going to sleep caused by low battery level, my X230T does not boot again- besides the sleep, orange battery and the WIFI LED there is no light. Those three are turned on constantly (no blinking) It does NOT help:- Change CMOS battery- Plug-in AC-supply without CMOS battery attached After all resetting measures, there are no lights turned on. After pressing the power button, the mentioned three LEDs will turn on. There is no fan, no noise from the computer. Do you have any idea? Thanks,Matthias

Hey guys. It's me again. And I can't find a solution to this.Lately I've got USB 3.0 issues. In Device Manager it shows 2 drivers and devices as "Unknown USB Device (Link in Compliance Mode)". I don't know why it came up but this is driving me crazy. I've got toast notifications from this. My USB 3.0 flash disk won't always connect to laptop. And when it will connect, it takes a while before it does. But in Win7 all worked perfectly and I really don't know a solution to this.I tried reinstalling driver, updating. But it's working for a while. After that it's still showing an error. And there's no USB 3.0 drivers from Lenovo for Win10. Has anyone encountered that kind of problem in their ThinkPads? Or anywhere?
