New Thinkpad T490S yellow tint



Just received T490S 14 inch with IPS anti-glare touchscreen based screen laptop. I am seeing the Yellow Tint on the screen and that looks quite different (not white at all) compared to my office laptop which shows nice bright white screen. Office laptop is T470S without touchscreen. 


I have tried some on line tips and note that nigh-mode is disabled. Other settings are default per Windows, nothing touched except logged into this laptop for the 1st time and noticed that screen color is warm yellow like paper display.

Re: New Thinkpad T490S yellow tint

Hi @tsoni!


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.


Could you try to perform a Clean Boot and check if the issue remains? Here's how.


For Intel GPU, you may also configure Intel color settings, you can right-click the desktop, select Graphics Properties > Display and Color Enhancement to open the options shown directly below. Look for similar options on NVIDIA and AMD control panels, and restore the color settings to default.

Re: New Thinkpad T490S yellow tint

I have tried the options you have suggested. It doesn't work. Planning to return this laptop back since it is a huge disappointment. My company laptop which is two year old model T470S works better than T490S and shows better white color on the screen. 

And we're back...
