i got my Yoga 370 for a bit over a month now. Since a few weeks i noticed som light patches on the left, right and top edges of the screen. I was wondering if this was some kind of lcd-display bleeding. But now i realise that those patches tend to get bigger. One can even notice thin regular horizontal lines inside those white patches. Is that a display defect?
Anyone familiar with this issue?

What you illustrate certainly doesn't look normal to me nor does it look like the system I was able to look at here in order to compare. Have you contacted support? If not I would suggest you do so and, if you could please, also send me your serial number by private message; I'd like to check the system here has exactly the same display.
Thanks in advance,

Hey, I noticed the same problem. A week or so after getting the laptop I started noticing a glow around the edges, especially towards the top corners. Originally I thought it was normal Backlight bleed but recently I also started noticing those horizontal lines. I wrote my retailer about changing the unit but would be interested in knowing whethere you found anything out about this problem.

I got my device replaced after i was asked to send my broken device to the European headquarter in Bratislava.
I seems like they where very keen to find out what was wrong with the display. As they are more and more reporting the same issue it looks like a problem in the production line...

Good news that they reacted quickly and replaced your machine, I'm glad it worked out. My new 370 is shipping to me now and I'll be certain to inspect the screen margins really carefully. Did your issue appear immediately when you first started using the PC or did it take a certain period of hours / reboots for the issue to appear? This box is for my personal use but we use T460's at work and I've never seen anyone with a bad LCD panel there which is one of the reasons I went with Lenovo over Dell. I've had Thinkpad's several times since they were IBM and always had good luck with them.

Mine has gotten better again over the past week. The lines are not visible anymore, although there is still some light bleeding on the left and right edges (none top and bottom) on dark backgrounds (the Atom text editor is a dark grey that seems to bring it out). However, not worth being laptop-less for a week at the moment.

Same thing here. Very distinct screen bleed around all edges (about 5 mm), model 20JJ. Sometimes the bleed is striped, sometimes general. I've notified Lenovo per my NBD on-site warranty and they are waiting for parts..
