P70 Screen Edge Discoloration

2018-03-29, 10:05 AM

I've had my P70 for about 16 months, and I've begin to notice the LCD screen is discoloring (getting darker) around the edges. Its especially dark along the bottom edge, although the biggest splotches are along the side edges. See pics for details:

 

What are my options here? Is getting the screen replaced typically covered by the warranty in these cases?

Anyone? Obviously there's a manufacturing defect here, as this isn't normal. I really just want to know if it'll be covered under warranty.

I cannot be sure without seeing the screen.  Sometimes, marks like that can be caused be dampness (not covered) or a defect (covered).  Can you take it to a service provider so you can both look at the same screen.

After almost a year, my P50 developed a similar problem:

 

 

The screen was replaced under warranty.
