Semi-transparent Screen Issue X1 2014

2014-08-29, 17:36 PM

Hey

 

I have this strange issue with my X1 (had it for a few months now but had the issue since the beginning).

Some colors, such as grey, make the edges of my screen semi-transparent as in I can see through to the application behind it.

I don't believe this is a screen issue but wondering if anyone else has experience this problem.

 

I have attached an image that makes it happen (try viewing it full screen and let me know what you see).

I have also attached an image of what I see.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Does this happen after something static has been displayed on the screen for awhile? It looks to me like ghosting / image retention, a common problem in several models of ThinkPad.

No, this just shows the app behind the screen as showing up through the edges.

It's generally in the greyer colors, if the foreground app is white, things do not show through.

Your descriptions "semi-transparent screen" and "app behind the screen" are very confusing and it's difficult to understand what you mean.

 

What exactly is the running state of the computer? What apps are running in your photos (with the "XO" in the first picture and the vertical bar in the second picture)? Describe steps to produce the result.

 

I think you're saying that you are running one app and launch another app on top of it, and you can see the first app bleeding through. The first app isn't really bleeding through -- it was burned into screen (also known as image retention or ghosting). It's a screen display hardware problem that is common on some models of Lenovo laptops.
