Yoga 720 Display Issue - Screen black and white

Hi there, 

 

i was working on the computer yesterday when all of a sudden my screen turned black and white, and hasn't gone color except when it's locked. I can't find anything in the control panel to fix it, and my drivers are up to date. The one solution I saw offered for a similar issue was to put windows+ctrl+c, but that doesn't do anything for my screen. I've restarted it too, of course. 

 

Help! I'm an interior designer and NEED color. I'm assuming the attached image is black and white? but can't really tell.

Try Windows key + Ctrl + C.

I found this elsewhere on this forum.

If you are running Windows 10, try the following

 

  • Right-click on start and select Settings
  • Select Ease of Access
  • Select Color Filters from left pane
  • Toggle the option Use Color Filters to OFF

You will also see the option to "Allow the shortcut key to toggle filter on or off' [Windows key + Ctrl + C] there, which is your case I presume is not checked.

 

Hope that resolves it for you.

 

Cheers,

Thank you! yes this worked. That setting was indeed not checked which is why that shortcut didn't originally work. Thank you so much for the quick reply and solving my issue!
