There are many good comments in this interminable thread.  Someone needs to go back and retrieve those with appropriate comments and explanations.


There is nothing stopping any member of this forum from creating a FAQ.  Feel free to do so yourself.

I don't think it is reasonable to try and predict what someone wants to use their computer for. Just because a device is light and portable and falls under an ultrabook category does not mean that users should excuse subpar hardware. If anything I expect the opposite.

I didn't really understand why people were so obsessed with Apple until now. They are the only company that can seem to churn out a reliable, tested product.

I spend a lot of time traveling and in airports, and I expect accuracy in a display panel. Why would anyone lower this standard simply because the computer weighs less then four pounds?

If Lenovo would like to put a sticker on the computer advising people that certain colors do not display properly, that would have been very helpful.

Lastly, who is deleting postings on here? Are we not able to enjoy our freedom of speech and express emotion for emphatic purposes here?

This just adds more fuel to the fire.

I found this article very interesting regarding the Ativ 9 Plus which shares the same QHD+ display panel as the Y2P.

 

 

"The display's slightly cool color balance is easily corrected using a calibrator like our Spyder Pro, but we noted that yellows look subdued when the laptop wasn't plugged into power. When plugged into the AC adapter, yellows appear perfectly yellow. Update: Nov. 2013: Samsung's SW Update program pushed a graphics driver update that fixes the dingy yellows when unplugged."

Re: Yoga 2 Pro 13 Yellow Color Issues

Is there any chance to get the answers from Lenovo R&D Team?

 

Is greenish yellow permanent HW issue (little output of red subpixels or sth similar ...) and there is no way to reach the satisfactory yellow with satisfactory brightness? Or is it a matter of calibration? Is the update from 13 Nov 2013 last update or not?

 

Thank you.

I also suggest reading this entire thread.  Your answer is in the forms of 100+ pages.  Lenovo and other users have been back and forth with an eplanation.  It is how the panel displays certain colors.  The greenish tint is due to an energy saving feature.  All panels like this have the same issue.

Called Lenovo support before Thanksgivings, since my yellow screen issue didn't get fixed after the BIOS/EM update and all the adjustments described in this thread. They said that they're aware that some of units' yellow problem would persist after the fix, and are collecting more data to assess the issue.

 

I'm getting a replacement unit early next week. It's great that they're shipping it before receiving the unit that I currently have.

 

I am not a graphics designer however I do use Microsoft Office and ImageJ routinely. There's definitely something wrong when RGB (255, 255,0) gives you green. Someone mentioned that the yellow issue with Samsung Ativ 9 plus got fixed with a graphics driver update. I went to Intel's website and downloaded the new driver however it wouldn't install since the driver was not validated by Lenovo. I suppose I could try forcing it however thought giving Lenovo a call instead.

 

Hopefully the replacement unit will be good!

My wifi has never dropped, my fan is near silent, my yellows look like yellow and it never overheats.  I must have gotten the magic Y2P.  As a matter of fact, I have had two Y2P's that were perfect except the first one had a chip in the casing on the bottom out of the box and got exchanged.

 

Luck of the draw.

Hi Mitchell,

 

Our litmus test so far has been to type in "color yellow" into google search. On my Y2P, it looks lime green at best and worse if I'm in battery mode.

 

On my Dell external monitor, it looks bright and completely natural.

 

Can you try this and advise if it looks natural?
