Yoga 12 Screen Bright Spot

2017-09-23, 19:11 PM

I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12, and on the display, a small bright spot develops when the device is on long enough. It only seems to be easily visible on lighter colors and webpages, midtones and dark colors/blacks doesn't show it. When the device is first booted, nothing appears on the display and everything looks uniform, but gradually, a light spot develops. 
From seeing previous forum posts about light spots, they say it's caused either through faults in the display, pressure, impact, or heat, and judging by how it takes a few minutes for the spot to form, I'd imagine it comes from heat or something under the display(?)

If the device is out of warranty, is there any way of fixing this?

I'm afraid the only 2 fixes are replacing the screen or getting used to it.
