Re: Widespread Y560 Display Problem?

2010-07-27, 18:44 PM

hi ARIES,

 

I did install a clean version of windows 7 Ultimate and same problems. the dancing pixels were even present in a Linux distro I installed while .58 fixed that issue the new gradients and ants around edges are still there.

 

I am wondering if the panel is really to blame but Lenovo is trying to fix it by software update instead of replacing the panels if they can, any thoughts ? Replacing all those panels on y560 would be a very expensive for them so maybe they are trying with the bios updates and finally if that don't work they will replace those panels hmm....

The EE is just a marketing term that Lenovo came up with.  It means absoutely nothing, it has no software or drivers or anything involved with it.  Besides, many of us (myself included) did do a clean install, and it didn't change or fix anything.

They should be able to fix the ants and big mouse issues with software.  However, the poor contrast, color, and gradients are purely on the panel, and no amount of updated BIOS or drivers will fix it.

You may be right...but there are tonnes of other people out there who have absolutely no problems. I also read a couple of reiviews and they seemed satisfied with the colours and contrast etc. I mean if it were a problem with the panel, it should be in ALL the panels...

I had a similar problem a while ago on my desktop PC. Turned out it was a problem with the RAM modules. Maybe you could try taking out one of the RAM sticks and if the problem still presists, replace it and try takign out the other,

Does anyone here really believe that a customer should be required to do a full operating system install on a computer they just purchased?  Anyone?  Wouldn't that be like Honda requiring me to rebuild the engine on my Accord after I drive it home.  That's ridiculous.  

 

It's clear that there are some serious display problems with the Y560, or at least a large number of Y560s.  Lenovo should make an attempt to address these issues in a hurry.  Personally, I'm about done with Lenovo in the future.  I also control a significant amount of IT purchasing dollars at my company, and will be steering those dollars to another company.

 

Hey, Lenovo!  Can we get an update on this issue please?

Its true that some people don't report any problems but this may be because there are more than one panel manufacturer for The Y560, for example on newegg The Y560 is listed and while there are only 3 reviews all 3 are positive and where 1 guys mentions that he has an Lg panel as indicated in hardware ids and he is very happy with the quality of the screen and another one says the screen is very nice, On the other hand all of us here have the AUO panel so the question is what is causing all those problems drivers or the AUO panel?

 

 

*I might buy an LG panel and replace it just to see if it those fix the problem by flashing the .54 bios and checking for dancing pixels and all other problems reported but first i must find a good replacement panel by measuring the one already inside, i keep u updated.

ARIES808, there are people that doesn't see the problems.

Not every Y560 customer is so exigent like we are.

But we are customer that bought a "stunning HD display" (as advertised).

 

Also, I don't know if Lenovo could fix all the problems with a BIOS or driver update... but I know that they WILL fix it.

Hi Kyle,

Just wondering, are you using the power-saver energy profile?  

I only ever had the big mouse problem once and it occured when I had my computer set to the Power Saver setting and on battery.  I read on a forum somewhere that the big mouse issue / display driver crash is sometimes a result of basically not enough voltage powering the display driver resulting in it fizzling out.  I've kept mine on auto-cpu-speed Energy Star etc and I've never had the mouse problem since.  Though I have occasionally used Power Saver and still haven't seen it...  hard to say ><

Re: Widespread Y560 Display Problem?

just bought 2 y560's to use for running the AV segments at conferences...

 

i'm having the same issues as others...

 

bad gradients on screen - looks more like 16 bit than a 24 bit display

 

also - the dancing pixels are readily apparent - especially with some pale colors and the screen tilted back, really show the problem

 

definitely needs to be addressed by lenovo - 

 

my screens are the AUO40EC ones - 

 

i'm always plugged in and never run in power saver mode - issues are always there

 

haven't played at all with upgrading any software etc... leaving next week to run the shows at the conference and don't need to cause any software issues before then  :)

 

i'll be calling lenovo next day or so and see what they have to say about it

 

fyi - have never had or seen the "big mouse" problem that others have reported - i'd imagine that's a whole different issue not related to the pixel/screen quality thing
