P53 4K Touch Colors Go Dull Ever Few Minutes

2019-11-04, 17:56 PM

When watching any media at all on my newly recieved P53 the colors constantly go completely dim every few minutes.

 

This occurs when it is plugged in as well as when it is running on battery. Any time we watch anything on the laptop at all we have to constantly keep moving the mouse every few minutes to cause the color to 'pop' back in.

 

My system is X-rite calibrated out of the box. The way it behaves is like a PC dimming a screen right before battery dies to save power, but instead of brightness its also all the vividness and color contrast as well.

Welcome to the world of OLED panels. You need to set the screen dimming parameters in the Vantage application. Here are some screenshots:

Thanks for the reply, hopefully that is what is causing the issue. Just changed the one setting that was not disabled by default to Never.

 

My Default Settings:

 

Eye Care Mode: Off

Automatic Eye Care Mode: Off

 

OLED Power Settings

Task Bar Dimmer: Never

Background Dimmer: Never

Display Dimmer: Half time of Display Off

 

I set Display Dimmer to Never.

I suggest that you let the background and taskbar areas dim as they are the most static areas on the display. I use a black background so that that image doesn't get burned into the panel. Of course, if you have the background set to change every 5 minutes or so, then it's not a problem.

This dimming happens to me but to the external monitor?? I would have thought these settings only apply to the OLED panel of the laptop.

Do you have the external display set as a mirror of the internal OLED panel?

Extended, not mirror. It is set as the primary display in this particular configuration. I use the laptop in mutliple places. Some days, I just use the laptop screen. Depends on where I'm at.

I have the display set to never dim, taskbar to dim in 1 minute, background in 2 minutes. Perhaps Vantage is applying the dim settings across all the monitors or it could be a Windows  problem. I don't believe that the power plans separate display brightness either.
