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

SPB1

 

 

Its very noticable on a gray background, that i can live it if its the worst it can get. 2 weeks is not a good benchmark, anyone with better or worse experience over an extended period of time like say 6 months?

I could only imagine worse... if I were you I'd try to swap the machine with one with the SPB2. I initially had issues with some prolonged ghosting but I was unable to reproduce it since then, so it's worth a shot. 

 

If you just bought it new, I'd return it and exchange it for one with an SPB2.

I also have ghosting issues with my Yoga 20CD-00B1US.  

 

Running HWiNFO64 shows that it is the SPB1 panel.

 

I can have a Chrome tab open for only a few minutes, and then switch to the Win8 Start Menu.  The Chrome tabs and the taskbar icons are all very prevalent.

Did you have the SPB2?

 

I would have exchange it for a new one as per your recommendation but the turnaround time for a new system is about 2 weeks and even then the guarantee of the new display is not set in stone.

 

I will wait and see how it progresses as I have read that the SPB2 display also have ghosting issues.

 

If it gets too bad, Set up and Onsite replacement and if that doesn't fix it, Sorry Lenovo! jumping camp

I opened a ticket to repair my ghosting issue, got a call from LENOVO tech and they came and replaced my screen with the SP1 version. Sad to say ghosting problem was still there. Opened another ticket and just got a call from tech saying they got new screen and its an SP2. Will go in to get it replaced. Wish me luck.

If i still have problems afterwards, i will contact LENOVO legal to get this settled. It seems that they just recently accepted the issue (saw some posts from people claming to be from LENOVO) but when i will call the 3rd time they better know what i am talking about and not act like they don't know.

Gonna go  have a beer and hope that i do not have to call a 3rd time.

Best of Luck to you Stemalo!

 

I am pretty confident that the Mods of this forum will keep us posted and bring us a fix.

 

For the time being, I just open a case myself and will be sending in my laptop to the depot for a replacement screen and await the good news.

 

Does anyone know how much it is to upgrade to an onsite warranty? Being without my trusty Yoga will be a hassle on the plane as I have gotten spoiled by the tent mode.

It definitely gets worse over time, mine has had light ghosting since I bought it back in April but it has just now gotten noticable under normal use conditions.

 

Speaking of, where are you guys going to file a support ticket?   Following lenovo's website instructions leads me to this IBM page https://www-930.ibm.com/support/esc/signin.jsp   Is that correct?  It seemed more like technical support than warranty repairs.

Quickest way would be to call directly, I haven't been able to navigate thru to their support channels online.

I have had my TPY for a few months now and the ghosting issue is getting bad. It has been steadily getting worse. Lenovo is there a solution yet? Whether it be temporary or permanent?
