Bright white spot on display

Q: Bright white spot on display

I have a 2014 era Lenovo X1 Carbon (20A7 -- not sure if it's 2nd or 3rd generation -- it's the one with the touchbar along the top of the keyboard)I get a number of bright white spots on my display. I had the screen replaced and this fixed the problem, but only temporarily. The spots came back exactly as before. Today, the IBM tech came in to fix the touchpad and I had him look at the display a second time. He removed the screen from the laptop lid to see if something was pressing against the display -- which would explain why two different displays would exhibit the same problem over time. Behind the screen is what looks to be an antenna that runs diagonally from about an inch down from upper left to the lower right corner. Sure enough, the white spots are appearing along this diagonal. When I run my finger across the antenna, I felt it was a bit lumpy in the area of the white spots with some speck of debris exactly behind where the brightest spot is. This makes me wonder if the irregularity in the antenna installation, as subtle as it is, is causing the backlight to become damaged over time.Lenovo seem inclined to just replace the display, but this doesn't seem to be the complete remedy. The mis-installation of the antenna in the backlid is the root cause of the problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I have the same problem. It began with to bright spots in the lower part of the panel, one in the left and one in the right corner. They came from one day to the other; now, a few days later, two, larger, non-circular blothes have emerged in the centre-left of the screen. The PC is not even a month old.
 
I did the pixel test mentioned - and it does not appear to be faulty pixels; the blotches remain visible with all colours, except for black, which is basically all the pixels turned off. The shape and size of the blotches also point to something else than pixel error.
 
Any idea what this might be? It is certainly getting worse by the day.
 
Thanks.

Hi,this is my second thread about an issue with my Spectre x360, only 3 months old.I send it to repair to HP the first time on 8th november 2016, and I had it back on 12 december 2016.The previous problem was a faulty display hinge. The HP support replaced the display entirely, the hinge and the wifi card.Today I noticed a strange behaviour on display backlighting. Yes, this looks like a issue with backlighting,not with pixel.Because the pixel changes its color and luminance correctly basing on what it's shown on the screen, but its BRIGHTER than others.Looking further, it's not just a pixel, it's a brighter spot, has nothing to do with pixels itself in my opinion.This is noticeable with light colors, on black/gray and darker colors it isn't visible.I'm starting to wonder about quality of spare parts and in general with HP products and their engineering.I'm a bit disappointed because after spending 1500? for a premium product I had to send it to repair, and it stayed 1 month and more away, lost 1 month of warranty, and worst of all, I can't enjoy my product.Today an issue showed again.I work in photography and I'm really starting to wonder if I have to consider to sell my Spectre x360 and looking to other manfacturers for my personal/work laptop choice.Attached there's a photo of the problem.

Hello everyone, this is my first message here, and by the way, I'd like to apologize for my poor english ;] Yesterday I have noticed a problem with the display in my X220 (type 4290-W1B). There is a small, white spot (about 1 mm diameter), clearly visible on the screen. It doesn't look like a normal bad pixel, but like a problem with the background light, or something. It is not visible when black color is displayed. The laptop was bought about 3 months ago and everything was OK until yesterday.I have attached some pictures of this dot, but it is difficult to capture it with the camera (it is much more visible in real). I have marked the spot (it is in the middle of the circle). The pics are in high resolution so you can zoom in.  What should I do now? I have heard , that the Lenovo bad pixel policy is 3 bad pixel per display.. Maybe some of you have noticed such problem already?Thanks a lot. Pictures:http://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_1.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_2.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_3.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_4.jpghttp://led.pwr.wroc.pl/aikon/pix_5.jpg

Believe I have the same thing. Don't know exactly for how long now, but I have been noticing them for a while now. Not visible on just black background, but on pretty much anything else. Most visible on white backgrounds. It appears as if these white spots are behind the pixel layer if that makes any sense. And there is more than one (I count three) of these areas on my screen and they all have a different shape and intesity. Best regards,Gundy

The pictures show it. Some days the area on the right on is dark, sometimes it is bright.  The second issue is that the screen won't always come on as bright as it should. This always happens when the computer has gone to sleep, and when I try to wake it the brightness looks turned all the way down, even though the computer thinks it is at 100% brightness.

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12, and on the display, a small bright spot develops when the device is on long enough. It only seems to be easily visible on lighter colors and webpages, midtones and dark colors/blacks doesn't show it. When the device is first booted, nothing appears on the display and everything looks uniform, but gradually, a light spot develops. From seeing previous forum posts about light spots, they say it's caused either through faults in the display, pressure, impact, or heat, and judging by how it takes a few minutes for the spot to form, I'd imagine it comes from heat or something under the display(?)If the device is out of warranty, is there any way of fixing this?

I have the same issue, has a solution been found? I have a rather large mark, like the edges of a rounded square of around 5 cm high to the left of the centre of the screen, where the HP logo starts on the back. It looks like there is something behind the screen shimmering through...I've been having various issues since I've had the laptop, one of them being that it is crooked, another is that on start-up, it'll flash some sort of static lines (like a screen/graphics malfunction) for a second or so before going to Windows. For a while it also flashed these lines at random while I was working, but I suspect that may have been a driver issue.On the whole, I'm rather happy with the laptop, but the different issues are very worrying, I don't trust that it will last very long, especially because there seem to be issues with the build quality. For a laptop this expensive, I had expected much better, especially since my HP Pavilion dm1, which was only 400? or so, lasted me a solid 4 yeard and never had any build issues whatsoever...

I am encounteringa problem with the screen of my HP Spectre x360. I have a few very small, white "bright" spots on my screen that show up especially badly on all white screens. I first notice them within the first few weeks of having my new laptop, but because of school I could ill-afford to send it in or spend any time trying to get any customer service. The laptop is great, but these marks are annoying and are unimpressive given the amount paid for a "top-end" laptop. I was told by an HP Technical Support technician that fixing such marks would not be covered by warranty as they would be "accidental damage", but the hinges on the Spectre are covered by warranty. I found this curious as both work together to make the "2-in-1" tablet-laptop functionality. I've hardly even used the touchscreen and always been very delicate with the laptop. Additionally, it was suggested that the pressure must have been applied from the back of the laptop, which is curious as one of the selling features is that it has a solid aluminum shell (and there are no visible marks of any kind on the back). Calling this accidental damage is a pretty terrible way of trying to skirt standing behind your products: it is a touchscreen computer, the touchscreen should not be damaged from occasional use. I have a touchscreen phone that I am constantly pressing and in 3 years have never had a similar mark. I got this with my Spectre 1 month in from almost never touching it (and if I was, it ...

Hi, I've had my Spectre x360 for two months now and noticed this just recently. The reason I noticed was that it was the first time I had a completely white screen, and the defect became very apparent. Spot stays stationary on screen and is most apparent with white or grey backgrounds, and is not very noticeable on blacks. The machine has been handled very delicately and not transported so it's certainly not damage. Will HP replace the unit for me? This is the second Spectre X360 I've had, first had WiFi and track pad problems and I am beginning to get quite frustrated.

Hello everyone.
I have a small problem when it comes to the intensity of the white colour in Windows 7. As it currently stands after tweaking the contract and brightness settings it is bearable, however, the downside is that my contract is undesirable low and that most colours are now too dark. So essentially the situation is that either I need to endure white that is too bright for comfort, or look at a screen that has too little contract and has most colours too dark.

Ideally, I would like to have the exact same colour profile in Windows 7 as I have in Windows XP. I'm currently using a Windows XP Home 32 Bit and Windows 7 Professional 64 bit Dual Boot set-up. For me, Windows XP does not have the problem described above. I should also note that the colour problem is only there when actually in Windows itself; I have no issues with how games look. Regardless, if it is not possible to have the exact same colour profile as in Windows XP; I'm certainly open to alternatives.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Too bright white

I am not sure how to convert color profile from XP to Windows 7.
I think it would be more efficient to calibrate your display for Windows 7.
Windows 7 will remember those settings.

Right click on Desktop - Screen Resolution - Advanced Settings - Color management tab -

The standard warranty does not cover accidental damages. However, you can avail our paid support by visiting a service center and get the issue fixed."Can you please explain me what it means.

Hi everyone,

I had to reinstall my Windows 7 OS on my HDD after my SSD seemingly broke down. Now that I am running my laptop off of its HDD, the display/screen is way too bright, and I can't seem to find a way to change the settings to how I used to have them previously when I was running my computer from the SSD. My computer is a Sager 8657-S.

I tried using calibrate display, but on the gamma calibration page no matter what level I set the gamma to, I can never get rid of the yellow/gold spot in the middle of the grey circles - it is impossible for me to achieve the perfect gamma setting. This was not a problem with my old configuration of Windows 7 on the SSD. I have attached a picture of the gamma calibration image so you can see what I'm talking about.

Am I missing drivers that would fix this issue? I re-downloaded the drivers listed on drivers and manuals page on Sager's website (not all of them, but the ones that seemed most important eg. video drivers)
At the moment my temporary solution is turning the screen brightness down using the fn keys on my keyboard that do so, but I would like to find a better solution as this is not optimal.

Thank you for the help in advance!

So I purchased a Y500 recently and it has been working mostly fine up until last night. Dual graphics card, i5, 6gb RAM, 1TB HD. I was doing Excel work in my living room and closed the laptop and carried it to my bedroom. When I reopened the laptop the screen was completely white with vertical colored lines. Sometimes the lines flash around quickly like it's trying to give me epilepsy and sometimes stay in one spot for a moment.  Ctrl-Alt-Dlt and every other key combination I could think of had no effect so I did a hard reboot. When I turned the computer back on the screen immediately goes back to being white with the vertical lines again. Like almost the instant I turn on the computer. If I leave it on for a while it keeps doing the same thing. I tried leaving it off over night and again in the morning it was the same thing. I plugged in an HDMI cable to my TV this morning and the computer works through the TV no problem.  When I first booted it up there was a windows update that installed which may or may not mean anything. Once booted up I could use the computer through the TV but the laptop screen stayed white with the lines. I'm hoping it could be the cable from the GPU to the laptop getting loose but that is pure layman conjecture. The laptop is under warranty so I'd rather not open it up and not be able to fix anything. Any suggestions?

hi aceec,
 
     Thank you for using Lenovo Community Forums!
 
      If your Y500 works fine with an external monitor then this is a display issue.
 Possible LCD cable but normally moving the screen angle like closing and opening the LCD will make the screen flicker.
 
       Since your still in Warranty I would suggest get in touch with Technical Support for assistance.
 I'm sorry to hear what happened.

My 4th gen X1 Carbon now haves a pressure mark that is quite visible in the middle of my screen, so I decided to go to one of the Lenovo service partners to check if this can be repaired. It turned out that this pressure mark is not in the range of warranty. However the technician in a service center in China told me that this problem is included in the warranty because models such as X1 Carbon has two warranties: 1st being the general warranty, 2nd being the accident warranty, including problems such as pressure mark. So I would like to know if this pressure mark problem is included in the warranty?This problem is quite serious as shown in the picture, especially when the brightness is high.This is how the pressure mark looks like, and there are actually more than one of them.http://imgur.com/a/v6ZZ5

I took it to the service center and they claimed that it is an accidental damage (something about putting too much pressure on the screen) and is not covered under warranty? I have never put any strain on that specific part of the computer so I feel like I'm kinda cheated out of warranty coverage by some lackluster excuse. Can anyone offer advice to this use case?

One place it shows up the worst is when I click the help system, which comes up with hyperlinks to answeres that are not only small but very dim and difficult to read. Another are is in Windows live Mail. Click a message to saveit when the screen comes up to let you choose a location to save it try to read the very small and dim date in the upper right corner, a hand held magnifer works OK but annoying. Trying to use the built in magnifier is a pain in the neck. ANYONE WITH AN IDEA. Windows 7 Pro is great if I could read xa ll the text well. If I change the screen resolution down to a much lower area like 800x600
it is better but every window screen message is too big.

According to the specifications for that monitor, 1920 x 1080 / 60 Hz is the max and preferred resolution. Have you tried running it at that setting?

I just upgraded to Widows 10 from 8.1 and the display seems to be too bright or something.  For example, when I use Microsoft Word 2013 the characters seem to be not as dark.  If I bold them they are find.  I use two monitor with this laptop and if I put my word document on my other monitor the characters are perfect. How do I fix this?  Thank you

I upgraded my "vista capable" Sony Vaio laptop to Vista RTM (official release). Now, in both Media Center 2005 that came with the laptop AND Vista RTM I'm running now, there is no option to reduce gamma. This is rather strange because the Intel graphic accelerator does not give you the option to reduce below 1.0. My screen is too bright and I have zero option to adjust the display contrast, gamma, brightness. How do I fix this problem?

Seven Forums,


I think I have asked this question before, and have tried some of the suggested solutions, however I still have the problem, which may not ever be resolved.

I have Macular DeGeneration which causes my vision to require a lot of light or a high degree of darkness of the text and a light background to read. Example this text I am using now for this message is ok as long as I have increased the side of this display to about 2.5 times the size of the normal screen which increases the text size a lot. Trying to read email requires the magnifier option provided with Win 7 Pro, In Windows Live Mail I cannot increase the size of the windows as you can do on the Web, In talking about Windows Live Mail if I am looking at new mail which allways comes in bold I can see just infe whitout increasing the size of the font.. High contrast text makes much better reading, windows 7 Pro is much worse than XP.

Any Ideas. I bought a Video card to try, did not realy help, Increased the dots per inch that worked ok except it fouls up Expression Web 4 what I use to keep web sites up to date, It just looks to me like this, example if a person would restrict a light bulb to be lit 100% would be bright, 40% would be very dim, that looks to me like the problem in order to reduce current.

Any Ideas.

Hi all,

I am experiencing a very strange issue.

I have GEForce 9100 as my graphics card. I have dual monitors connected to my computer. For some reason, one of the monitors is displaying the colors too bright. Please see attached images for monitor 1 and monitor 2.

As you can see the color red in the left image is too bright which is monitor 1. I have tried to fix the color from monitor settings but to no avail.

Does it have anything to do with the graphics card I have? Any help will be greatly appreicated.

Thanks.

A:Display too bright

Right click your desktop. Choose NVIDIA control panel. You can make all adjustments in there.

I got my computer about a year and a half ago. It came with Vista, but when I tried to play games on it the screen would go black for a few secs randomly and then click back on. Once I downgraded to XP, it's worked fine.

I installed a dusty old graphics card that I had lying around. I hadn't touched it in years, wasn't sure how it would work, but it's been fine for around a year or so. It's a Radeon 9250, pretty old, but it beats the onboard Intel crap.

Well, a few weeks ago, my screen started to look funny. It started getting really bright. I was using somewhere around a 20" Flatscreen monitor, and as time passed over a day or two, it became so bright that I couldn't look at it. I tried lowering the brightness, contrast, etc.; but when I did that I would get all kinds of weird lines going across my screen like an old VCR tape. I knew the monitor was capable of displaying normal colors, because when I "auto-adjusted" it on the monitor itself it would display fine while it was warping the screen to fit, but then when it was done it would be bright again. I tried using the onboard graphics, but it looked the same. I finally said "screw it" and plugged in an older monitor.

Well I've been running this older monitor since then, a few weeks or so, and now all of a sudden it's doing it as well. I have no idea what's causing it, and any help would be appreciated. The new monitor is tiny, probably around 15-16&qu... Read more

A:Problems with display being too bright...

Before ruling out that the two monitors are having the same problem, make sure the problem is exactly the same. If the problems look exactly the same, then go down to #2 below. If the two monitors' problems are just a little bit different, then I might first try using another computer with both of the monitors; but if that doesn't work, go down to #2.
#2. Ruling out that two different monitors were having the same problem inside themselves regardless of outside sources, I would first guess it's either your video card or your video card drivers.

First, see if your video card drivers are up-to-date. If they aren't, uninstall your old ones, restart Windows, install the new ones, restart again, and see if the problem continues.

If that doesn't fix it, I would try uninstalling the video card drivers, taking out the Radeon card, booting up with the onboard graphics, using the same monitors/cables/outlet/adapters if any, and installing the newest drivers possible for the onboard graphics hardware (after uninstalling old ones); many manufacturers will have updated drivers available on the internet.

If that doesn't work, I would try to discover if it is a problem with either cables, adapters (if any), or the outlet the monitors were plugged into. Try using a different monitor power cord, then try a different monitor data cable, then a different outlet on the wall, maybe even a different set of outlets, and a different power strip if you have one.
