Flex 3 1580 Yellow tint

Q: Flex 3 1580 Yellow tint

bottom right corner?I bought my Flex 3 1580 in december and this just happened. The screen in the bottom right hand corner is yellow and it wont go away. I don't think this is a driver issue but rather a hardware issue. I haven't dropped my computer and have overall handled it very carefully so I don't know what could have caused this. Does anyone else have this problem?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I bought a flex 3 in December and all of a sudden at the bottom right corner of the screen there is a yellow tint. Is there any way to fix this without sending it in for repair? My base warranty is till June by the way, but I don't think that will cover this.

I bought an Ideacentre AIO 520 yesterday and the monitor has a slight yellow tint to it? It's especially noticeable when stood side by side with my old computer. I have the night light turned off, no other colour-altering programs/apps that could be interfering with it and when I try to calibrate the colours and set my new calibration to default, it automatically reverts back to the yellowy tint? Any help would be appreciated

My family just bought a new HP S2031 LCD monitor. I wasn't the one who hooked it up, but the first time I used it after it was hooked up, the screen was tinted yellow, and I assume it has been since it was hooked up.

I tried going to color settings and changing the default to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 (as I was advised on another site), but that didn't change anything.

I also tried to calibrate the colors, but there didn't seem to be any setting that removed the yellow tint.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

My laptop's screen has a yellow tint to it. If I turn it off, the screen is normal for the few seconds before I am logged out. Turning it back on, as it loads it is also normal, but then it flickers to yellow. Today, the yellow tint came on as soon as I hooked my laptop to the projector for a presentation. The projector projected my yellow tint, so I know it's not a physical issue with the screen. I'm thinking that something is off with the graphics card. Any help?

I have an HP 4331A CRT monitor that suddenly has a yellow tinted picture. Suddenly as in: Turned it off last night, turned it on this morning and it was yellow.

What's interesting is that to the immediate right of certain colors - most noticeably red, green and yellow - there is no yellow tint (white is nice and white). I used MS Paint to draw some solid color rectangles on a white background and to the right of the (red, green and yellow) rectangles the background is white for several pixels and then fades into the yellow tint.

Does anyboy have any idea what the cause of this is and maybe how to fix it?

I have noticed that the QHD screen on my x360 has yellow tint to it. Compared to several other devices it is quite obvious, and is a big problem when color correcting photos. Has anyone else noticed this issue? Who makes this panel? I am aware I can correct this somewhat with calibration, but I need to know if this is just the panel or a faulty unit (my exchange period is about to expire).

A:Spectre x360 QHD Screen Yellow Tint

Hi @Phynal ,Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. It is a great site for information and questions. I have looked into your issue about your HP Spectre x360  Notebook and seeing a yellowish screen.  Here is a link to a document that will help you troubleshoot the image on screen flickers, has lines or distorted colors. Here is a document on how to connect to a monitor if you need it. When you connect it to a monitor do you see the same results? Make sure all updates have been completed in the control panel or click the Windows key and start typing PC settings, then go to update. You could try a Refresh of Windows 8. Please read all the document before performing. This would restore all settings on the PC. I hope this helps. Thanks.

Apologies your computer is not working as expected.LCD screen colors can change from model to model and computer to computer.  This is within normal tolerances and is as expected.  Have you tried comparing screens with another 5289?  Have you tried looking at it with an external monitor?  Is there a noticeable difference?  If you have tried all of these things, here is some information from Dell's knowledge base you may find helpful.

Hi,

I'm having a weird problem that showed up after I installed my new Samsung SyncMaster 2220wm monitor: Every photo I open now shows with a yellow tint. Even the background of the program isn't grey anymore, and is more yellowish.

I've tried the solution in an article on Microsoft's site, but it didn't work.

Other sites recommend deleting all colors profiles, but I'm not sure if that's safe. Also, some sites say I should use the vista bundled sRGB IEC61966-2.1 color profile, but I can't find it on the list.

Any ideas?

Your help is much appreciated

Hi all,I ordered the new Dell XPS 15 9550 a little while ago. It's a great machine, but there was an issue with a metallic rattling inside one of the speakers, especially when playing high notes. I got a replacement, the sound is fine, but the screen is different on that one. It's the same type of screen, same manufacturer (LG) but the colours, brightness and white balance are off. It's almost got a very subtle yellowish, muddy tint that is warm. The whites are not white any more and it does not seem as bright. I had them side by side so I could compare and the difference is obvious.I don't think there's anything wrong with the screen - but it does seem odd, and I got a hunch that Dell have made some adjustments to the BIOS or the default colour profile.Has anyone ele experienced this, and is there a fix for this?Thanks!

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)

Dear Lenovo, I purchased this device, Flex 3-1580, at Office Depot some time ago. At random times, it will do the following: Video goes black; Backlight remains on. Audio will stop as well. Can't tell if any fan is running or not, nor can I tell if HDD is running. Keyboard may or may not be lit, but is unresponsive. Only way to get out of it is to hold power button until it turns off, let things clear out for ten seconds, and restart. Here are the conditions under which, after some months of trying to reproduce the results consistently, this crash seems to happen: a) Does it regardless of power source, be it battery or AC adapter. b) Unit can sit on a table for hours, unused, and not crash; but it may crash - eventually (keep that in mind, it'll come in handy). c) Unit only seems to crash when I'm writing a Word document, working an Excell worksheet, or attempting something productive, like chatting with a Lenovo TS person to try and resolve this (which I've attempted three times, and all three times the thing has crashed mid-chat). I've read the forums about similar problems. I've updated the BIOS to the best of my ability. Installed the new ME software. I'm not updating the video driver because as far as I can tell that's impossible at my end, and there's no way I'm reinstalling Windows 10 if I don't have to. So let's revisit b) and c) above. Unit can sit on a table, perhaps just watching youtube or something, and nothing happens...

Hi, I was thinking of buying this hybrid:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16834332513 And then upgrading it with this:https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820250085 I'm not clear on whether this voids the warranty or not? As close as I can understand it, it "may" if I mess something up? I've opened at least 100 laptops without messing anything up, so I'm confident I can do it without damaging anything, but I have also seen motherboards and touchscreens die in the first year, and don't want to mess up that part of the warranty for an SSD upgrade. I figured I'd make sure it powered on, then shutdown, crack it open, install the M.2 SSD, clone everything over, wipe the old SSD once into windows, and then finally perform the product registration. (Which uploads all your hardware specs? So they'd know everything was A-Okay with the new drive in place?) Thoughts? Anyone got more info on how strict they are with self service?

Noticed how the keys are localized and aligned (Space, backspace, the center enter key, and the forward slash.) , as this maybe on the board level of the keyboard and not just the key itself. 
 
If the same failure would also happen in the BIOS then probable hardware issue should be reported to technical support team for in warranty repair.

I recently got a Flex 3 1580. It has both the integrated Intel 520 gpu and the nVidia 940M gpu.  Some of the games I'm playing for some reason don't seem to like the Intel gpu. I know for non windows store apps you can right click on the exe and tell it which gpu to use.   As far as I know you can't do that with the windows store apps. So my question is this.  Would it be okay to disable the Intel 520 in the device manager or would that cause problems with the machine or windows?
