Bright Point on my Screen

Dear all, 


I own a Lenovo T470 and when I started it this morning I could clearly see a white stain/point on the screen. 




Please find a picture attached. 


I am currently working in the UK on a project at University. Hence, I do not have much time to go back to Germany to visit the retailer where I bought the machine, set up a new system etc... . I have deadlines next week. 


The problem happens mostly on the white and light ground. If I turn it into a black screen you can not see it anymore. 


How severe is this issue? Could it become even worse? Is there an easy solution (I doubt it)?

I have honestly no idea what could have caused that. Yesterday evening I was working on it and everything was fine. 


I would be so glad for any help or comments.

Re: Bright Point on my Screen

Often, bright spots are caused by pressure (thumb pressing on screen???).  I am NOT SAYING YOU CAUSED THIS.  Bright spots are always a hardware problem.  Are you still under warranty?  I really cannot diagnose from the picture, but the best choice is to take it to a service location that does warranty work so you can both be looking at the same thing.

If a response answers your question, please mark it as the accepted solution.
