Yellow tint on X1 Carbon (2016) display

I just received my X1 carbon (4th gen) today. The whites on the display have a visible yellow tint. I believe this is related to color management or display calibration. It seems the colors looks correct and good but I would like the whites to look white as well.

 

How do I solve it?

Hopefully it isn't a faulty monitor, but try reviewing this link.

Re: Yellow tint on X1 Carbon (2016) display

I have been trying this but I feel that I am not an expert and therefore would likely not be able to get the best settings. I am hoping there is some standard setting or set color profile that I can apply. I looked up online and could see various .icc files but none of them worked for me.

Yeah, I'm not a huge expert in contrast settings as well. I'd keep looking around on YouTube but do keep in mind, if you can't fix it within a week, refund it (depends on their refund policy). I've had terrible experience with Lenovo products (not the only one either). First 6-9 months they're awesome but after that, you'll slowly start experiencing issues, slowness, crashing, freezing, etc. Just my word of advise Smiley Wink

If you click the windows icon, then open lenovo settings, then click the icon of a monitor, there are some settings there for the paper display.  You are probably in some mode that is meant for different lighting. 

 

It is a nice feature, don't get me wrong, but it was like f.lux and didnt have enough settings to be useful to me.
