Yoga 900 screen has Yellowish Tint

2016-07-29, 0:23 AM

I got my Yoga 900 yesterday and everything was fine until I had my friend's laptop placed beside mine. The white parts of the screen have a yellowish tint! I tried reinstalling drivers but no use. 

 

Attached is a picture comparing my Surface 3 screen with Yoga 900 screen.

 

Is this a known and common issue for Yoga 900 or is it specific to my machine?

 

Anyone found a solution for this already? 

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

First, congratulations on getting a new Yoga 900 and welcome to the forum!

 

Some newer models in the Yoga series have a feature called "Paper Display Mode." When enabled this mode dims the display slightly and adjusts the shade of the white background to become warmer, i.e. yellowish. This feature is intended to simulate the characteristics of paper, making it easier on the eyes to read books, PDFs and similar material.

 

You can toggle Paper Display Mode by pressing Fn+Esc. An on-screen message temporarily confirms the status of this mode.

 

Try toggling PDM and see if that explains the yellowish tint.

Hi Guru, thanks for the reply. But this is not due to PDM. The picture I posted is with PDM off.

OK. Well it was worth checking since PDM is a relatively new feature that isn't widely known.

 

You might also want to experiment with Windows color calibration. See e.g. How to Calibrate Your Monitor in Windows 10. Intel has something similar. Look for the HD Graphics Control Panel application.

 

Panel characteristics vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from model to model. The differences you see may be related to this, to different maximum brightness specs, or possibly a panel manufacturing defect. If the yellowish tint is problem for you, then you might want to contact Lenovo support to see what options they can offer you.
