Re: Thinkpad Yoga - ghosting / after-image / watermark issue

2014-09-26, 12:01 PM

For crying out loud...I was just about to send my yoga to maintenance for screen replacement. It's fare to say at this point that lenovo doesn't have fully working display for yoga. I really don't know what to do now, if SPB2 panels too are prone to ghosting.

To be fair the ghosting on my unit seems to have subsided by a reasonable amount.

 

There are still some unpleasant blotches of colour around the monitor, however.

I also have this issue and have since July. I have a return box but it sounds like there's not necessarily a long term fix, right? I use my PC all the time and would rather not be without it if I'll just have to resend it eventually. It doesn't seem to be getting worse so I suppose I can live with it for now, I am pretty disappointed though.

@Amy_Lenovo: What about customers with a one year limited warranty, that expires in a few months? It would be ashame if I have to extend my warranty, because you cant fix the ghosting Problem!

I hope Lenovo fixes every one of the crap screens it sold us. The cost of the Yoga Thinkpad + Wacom Digitizer should't demand this type of crap and grief from low end parts.

because I thought lenovo had finally got close to fixing this problem and would back up further issues in future via warranty, I bought a TPY a few weeks back, hoping that buying off the outlet store would ensure the unit had been properly fixed and tested for this problem before shipping out. now, after daily use for a week, there is clearly ghosting happening around where lower task bar is. 

 

I just ran the HWiNFO64 Report and it looks like it was 'fixed' with another LP125WF2-SPB1


Does anyone remember what pages the links are to the grid test? I know this was offered up several times, but I don't have time to trawl through the back pages.

this is my 2 week old yoga thinkpad with ghosting issues. Both the left and right edges are plainly visible after turning off display and the start button is starting to get more visible. This is taken with my camera phone compressed down to the size limit of this forum.

 

 

Does it get worst? the only think i dislike is when i go into bios, you can clearly see the bios settings on screen for at least 5-10 minutes.IMG_0237[2].JPG
