Black dot Yoga 920 screen, unsure if it is a dead pixel.

2018-02-07, 12:20 PM

Hello,

 

So I started using my new Yoga 920, and so far I'm very happy with it, it's a blast quality-wise.

 

But starting to do graphic work on it, I noticed a weird black spot which does look like a dead pixel, but moving my head around makes it move "above" the screen. For example if I put the cursor tip on it, if I move my head to the right the black spot appears more on the left of the cursor.

 

It looks like something is inside the screen, or the glass has a small defect on that particular spot. Do you know how to adress thsis issue, or if I can send it for repairs ? Doing mostly graphic work on my laptop it could become bothersome quite fast.

 

Also, I am located in France, if that changes anything. Thank you !

 

EDIT : I also have a pretty loud coil whine on heavy load, so it could be another reason to send it back...

Solved! See the solution

Hi Solomai,

 

firstly i would recommmend you to run following page for dead pixel detection:

 

http://www.deadpixelbuddy.com/

 

If you find any dead pixels just contact Lenovo support, there shouldn't be any issues with the exchange/refund.

My problem is I'm not sure if it's a dead pixel. Actually, I don't think so. A dead pixel shouldn't change its position on the screen depending of my head's position, that's a bit weird. c(=

 

But I'd like to know if a glass defect/coil whine could be enough to send it back (I know the dead pixel warranty is actually very good).

There're some threads about heating and fan issue. You can search the forum for these if you solved the dead pixel issue ( or ignoring it )

My coil whine seem to come from around the left palm rest, I don't have any fan/heating issues. There's only the speaker and the battery around this place, right ?

I'm having the exact same problem with what at first appears to be a dead pixel, but looking at the side it seems to be something stuck behind the glass.

Did you get your returned?

It's either that or a Gorilla Glass problem.

 

In the end I did return it, the replacement doesn't have this problem. Considering the price tag of the machine, it's better to replace it for a another one that does have any annoying flaw. :)
