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

2014-11-18, 9:36 AM

I have had my TPY for about 2 months now and I don't have any problems with ghosting. Any TPY manufactured after mid-August should have the SPB2 panel installed; it's definitely worth it!

@Dave_thetroll

Thinking of picking up a Yoga S1 from the outlet store, have the panels all been replaced with the newer model?

I got a laptop that was bought 3 weeks ago, but it still had the SPB1 Panel and the image retention test showed that the screen still have the image retention.
I returned the laptop and got one with 1366x728 display, and it seems this one doesn't have image retention. I will repeat the image retention test after few weeks and see what happens

Alright, so I sent my Yoga off for repair Saturday and got it back today.  Quick turnaround and they replaced the panel with a new SPB2 panel.

 

I can confirm my SPB2 definitely displayed ghosting symptoms right out of the box:

With this new panel I got faint ghosting across the entire screen instead of just around the edges.

 

However, as I've been using the laptop for a few hours and keep rechecking the ghosting, and it seems to be lessening.  Last time I checked it was only barely noticable in one small section of the screen.

 

So hopefully the panel just has a break in period or something.  I'm a little concerned that ghosting will return over time but I'm hopeful that this finally solved my issues.  Will update with any changes.

Update:  Ghosting still seems minimal on my new panel, but I just discovered the touch screen has two dead spots:

Which is another common issue.

 

And on top of that if I'm dragging a long distance it tends to release the click in the middle of the drag.  Noticed while playing solitaire with the touch screen and it kept dropping my card.

 

So guess I'll send it back to Lenovo again....  very frustrating.

Hey guys

 

I'm interested in getting a TPY so I've been following this topic for some time. Yesterday i found a video- based on comments it seems to help with image burn/retention on lcd screens. Most of the people say it helped (users of ipads, smartphones, imacs and other). The video has to be played at least for two hours depending on a case (some say it helped after a few minutes, other had to run it whole day). Also there's an option to choose screen format (TPY has 16:9?). Could any user of a TPY try it and see if it helps? 

 

Link to the video:

Hope this helps
