X1 Extreme gen 3 Monitor green hue

2021-04-06, 17:10 PM

New (just out of the box) X1 extreme Gen3, FHD screen, i-7 10750H.

 

The monitor has washed out red and blue. As a result, grey always has a green tint. Extreme example, in several grey screens of lagom.nl.

Tried multiple times to calibrate (with QuickGamma etc.), no solution. Gamma is adjusted at 2.2.

 

Is it something observed in other samples also? can be corrected (firmware, monitor inf etc)?

Or return would be the only solution?

The originally reported problem was not really one...

 

There is a Lenovo app (Lenovo Display Optimizer) that I have totally overlooked.

And for some reason was set at AdobeRGB (perhaps I did it while originally setting-up the laptop, but did not remember).

 

Of course, all tests based on sRGB were wacky. Since I set it back to "Native", all look normal. 

Note: setting = "Movie Pro", although has the correct white at 6500K, is more difficult to calibrate, if not impossible without a real calibrator tool.

So, I left it at "Native".

 

So...all good, except the issues addressed already @@w0qj

 

 

 

PS:

"Lenovo Display Optimizer" is a great little app (affecting colour space and contrast level).

It would be VERY nice if Lenovo could add some functionality and info:

  1. the colour space used by each selection setting
  2. contrast level for each setting
  3. add a setting for user-defined contrast setting.

Diagnostics are fine (both in UEFI and in OS).

 

But please help with this...

Device Manager has driver version 6.14.7.0 (dated 13/11/2020). While on the support site the latest is 6.14.6.0.

Where this 6.14.7.0 came from? What is the version other users have?

We have the X1 Extreme Gen 3 (X1E3), very similar specs as yours, and we are very satisfied with our LCD.

 

1. Our X1E3:  20TK-CTO1WW

15.6" FHD (1920x1080) IPS 500nits, Anti-Glare, Non-Touch (ie: Matt Screen)

<We got this LCD option for much longer battery life, as compared to our 4k OLED X1E1 X1 Extreme Gen 1.>

 

We are very satisfied with our LCD screen; no hues/tints observed on ours...

 

Is your X1E3 LCD same as the one above?

 

2. Notebookcheck.net actually has downloadable ICC Color Profile, and their review is based on this very same FHD LCD as well (500 nits = 500 cd/m2).

www.notebookcheck.net/ThinkPad-X1-Extreme-Gen3-2020-Lenovo-s-Premium-Multimedia-Laptop-with-GTX-1650-Ti-Max-Q-in-Review.512920.0.html#toc-display-x1-extreme-with-matte-1080p-screen

 

ICC

www.notebookcheck.net/uploads/tx_nbc2/N156HCE_GN1_02.icm

 

The only catch is, I don't know how to install this *.ICM profile into my X1E3 from Notebookcheck.net (it said something about Admin error--but ours is an Admin account already).

 

Hope this works out for your X1E3 !

@w0qj

thnx a mile for your feedback.

 

Please do me a huge favour...visit this pages:

 

1. http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/clock_phase.php

Do you see a clearly green tint?

2. http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/inversion.php#invpattern

Do you see for tests [1,2a,2b, 4a, 4b] a green tint and ghosting next to the instruction box?

3. (same webpage - test 3)

do you see grey, but ghosting next to the instruction box?

 

 

see below for more info...

BTW, the .icc file has to go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color.
