Yellow colour in the top corners of the screen

2014-05-30, 19:05 PM

In the top left and top right corners of my laptop screen there are faint yellow circles about half a cm in diameter, as if the yellow pixels are stuck on. They blend in with what ever is meant to be dispalyed. If I rub the screen they seem to move/fade for a moment then come back. They never use to be there and seem to be getting more prominent as time passes. Seen some messages about ghosting but don't think this is a similar issue as they are there constantly.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

You have a faulty LCD.

I read your post and I have the same issue. I was wondering if you have had the screen repaired? My spot is getting bigger and the ghosting is getting worse. I am in medical school and I will be in trouble if this thing goes down on me. I will also be in trouble if the total repair turn around takes more than two weeks.

All,

 

Lead_org is right that the solution would be to change the LCD - if you also have the ghosting, it should all be taken care of with a replacement LCD.
