Display backlight bleed

Q: Display backlight bleed

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.

Problem solved. I returned the second HP laptop to Best Buy and purchased an open-box fully-warranted all-in-one 21.5-inch iMac with a glorious 1080P display, wireless keyboard and mouse and not one single issue. Partitioned the hard drive for WIndows 10. Sorry, HP.

Then i noticed that there are White Spots\Screen Bleeding at the edges of the screen.I returned the laptop to dealer and he told me this was not a fault or defect and he was not going to change it.They simply do not accept that this is an acceptable condition to replace the laptop.He agrees that this happens to many products and he knew this was the issue in his many products but refused to return it.I need advice... Thanks in advance...

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. )

Hello I just got my new Yoga 920 - really liking it so far. There is a small amount of backlight bleed at the bottom of the screen - it's something I can live with, but considering it's a top of the line machine and cost a lot of money, is any amount of backlight bleed acceptable? I'm not sure if I should consider returning it and getting a new one, and risk getting one that is even worse. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Many thanks Zack

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.

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.

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, 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!

The only solution is to have the monitor replaced, assuming it's under warranty.  If it was purchased from Dell, contact customer support and have it replaced.
If it was purchased from a third party, return it to the seller for a refund or replacement.

This also happens when the timer shuts the screen off. The brightness of this light dims when I disconnect the power cord but it never shuts off.

Hey everyone,  I have a little problem with my notebook. I have just make a service ticket for my notebook because the display stopped to work. When the IT-service changed the display to a new one, the new one did work but without backlight. He tried to connect with an another display cable, but it was the same problem. What now? I have read something about backlight inverter, but I don't know if that is the problem. He took the new display and left my home only with that I need to wait for an another new display... He only checked the new display. Nothing else. I know that I need to wait, but what can be the possible solution? 

A:X250 New Display, Backlight not working

There is no inverter.  Inverters are related to the old CCFL backlights that needed A/C current.  There is no way to diagnose without seeing it, but if the backlight came on before the screen was changed, my guess is that whoever changed the display didn't disconnect everything and drain capacitors so he or she blew the fuse on your motherboard.

Rightclick on the monitor display to see how it is configured, try another. What happens when you choose only the laptop display, or unplug the monitor?

If these fail can you System Restore to before the problem began?
