Lenovo Yoga 920 Yellowish Screen (Without Paper Display Mode On)

Hi,

 

I just purchased Lenovo Yoga 920 Starwar edition in Dec'17.

The screen very  yellowish (without Paper Display on) compare my other laptop.

I prefer cool light type of screen than warm light type.

Can I just adjust the screen type to cool light?

Even with the recent Lenovo Vantage color temperature adjusted to 6500K, the screen still very yellowish.

This laptop costs me SG$2,800. I prefer better screen color temperature.

Please help.

 

Thank you.

Hey! Twins! I also have the Star Wars edition.

 

As for the yellow display, you may have "night light" mode on, which reduces blue light for night time use. An easy way to access this is to go to your notification tray by clicking the icon to the right of the clock in the taskbar. From there you can toggle night light, or right click the night light icon to adjust the settings.

 

I find this feature to be super useful, as Im a bit of a night owl and do a lot of work at night time. The reduced blue light helps me transition quicker after working to fall asleep.

 

Hope this helps.

I already off the Night Light. Besides that, I set the night light settings to the coolest temperature.

Hello again

 

My only other suggestion is to toggle paper display through Fn+Esc. I personally didn't know about this function. Hopefully this is what you are looking for.

 

If not, hopefully someone else can assist

I had the same issue, also with a 920 Star Wars, but was able to resolve it on my own - no need to contact Lenovo or replace the unit (the 920 is a great model!). I was initially disappointed like the OP, thinking the display was poor quality (white was brown-ish), but with a bit of tinkering with settings, I can say that I have a great screen (white is white).

 

It appears to have something to do with the unit's default settings (out of the box), and a little calibration is required to suit your taste - so for future reference of anyone who experiences the same issue, just follow the steps below (I know it's a bit long, but definitely worth the 5 minutes over a lifetime of a dull screen):

1) open up settings > system > display
2) bottom of the screen, click "advanced display settings"

3) click "display adapter properties for Display 1"

4) this opens up a popup, go to the "color management" tab

5) click "color management", this opens up another popup

6) go to the "advanced" tab and click "calibrate display"

7) this will guide you through a process of setting brightness/contrast (not really applicable on a laptop), but then also gamma etc.

8) at the end of the calibration, the menu will let you compare your old (ugly) settings with the new (nice) settings

9) now, this color profile is saved on the "devices" tab of the "color management" menu (step 5)

10) click on the profile you just created, and then click on the "set as default profile" button below.

11) you are now good to go - enjoy your beautiful-er screen! Smiley Happy

 

PS. I'm not a tech guy myself, so I hope the steps above are easy enough to follow and don't require screenshots.

Re: Lenovo Yoga 920 Yellowish Screen (Without Paper Display Mode On)

I have the same problem. After the color configuration the colors look normal again. But after a restart I have the yellow cast again. FN + ESC (Paperdisplay) also doesn't work anymore. I suspect that the error has something to do with it. Does anyone have any hints and can help me? greetings
