iPad 2 Owners Complain of Backlight Bleeding

iPad 2 Owners Complain of Backlight Bleeding

Posted March 12, 2011 at 6:17pm by iClarified · 39218 views
Numerous reports of blacklight bleeding on the new Apple iPad 2 are surfacing online. Engadget and MacRumors forum users are posting images of their devices online and some have already returned the affected units to Apple.

Engadget notes that this is not to be confused with the yellow tint issue.

The second issue, which is being conflated with the first, is characterized by light bleeding through from the outer edges of the LCD panel. The bleeding is most noticeable when watching a dark scene in a movie or using an app with a black background as demonstrated in the picture above and video embedded after the break. For those affected, the issue can be minimized or exacerbated by adjusting the brightness in settings.

Are any of you experiencing the same issue?

Do any of these people have TVs? Bleeding naturally occurs on all displays. It's called turning the brightness down

Ppl, before writing bullshit here, please navigate to wikipedia and read about "Backlight". "Bleeding" is a normal effect among LCD panels.

does it really matter if its bleeding light or bleeding BLOOD! people will still buy the damn thing lmao.i myself have a ip4 love it! but no matter what flaws apple makes APPLE KNOWS they will still make BILLIONS! at the customers price. ipad 3 should fix this issue i also just heard the cameras are both less then 2 megapixel? how the hell does a 1 megapixel cam take HD 720P but the iphone 3gs did not ?

Apple blocked it, not because the processor couldn't handle it, but because of the battery and because of the less difference with iPhone 4 I guess.

if you have 3gs there is a cydia tweek by which u can record 720p video on 3gs, i have iphone 4 & 3gs, i tried that on my 3gs and did compare both cam result they were same.

good job apple and foxcon for pushing out another crap product

Are memories really this short? Just like the first iPad and some iPhones, the bonding agent will dry and the effect will go away. My first iPad had it for a week. My new iPad has it but it's already mostly gone away
Junaid - March 14, 2011 at 4:18am
dude! u mixed two issues the one you are talking about is the yellow tint and that gets away after using the screen and bonding agent gets dry, the one they are talking here is another, please read the article and see the video then comment.
