Apple’s iPad 2 Issues? iPad 2 Consists Backlight Bleeding & Yellow Spot Issues
Though most of tech companies have a solid opinion that Apple’s recently launched iPad 2 is a matchless tablet in the market and grabs some highly remarkable features, a few defects in iPad 2’s desighn have begun to appear on the surface. Many primary buyers of iPad 2 are complaining the backlight bleeding issue on the new iPad 2.
Both giant forums for Apple products of Engadget and Macrumors are filled with such type of complaints in which iPad 2’s users have also posted the images of their devices clearly exhibiting the backlight bleeding issue. It has also been described that many of them have returned their iPad 2 to Apple due to this annoying issue of backlight bleeding. Here is an image from Engadget showing the backlight bleeding defect.
The backlight bleeding issue becomes more evident in the dark;
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. So what say you dear reader, are you also a bleeder?
You can watch this backlight bleeding effect in action by the video imbedded below;
Another issue which is also disturbing most of the iPad 2’s owners;the presence of yellow spot under the LCD glass which is exactly similar to the fresh-from-the-factory iPhone 4 issue. However, it would be solved automatically itself with the passage of time when the bonding agent used for LCD glass would have enough time to evaporate.
Apple is using a bonding agent called Organofunctional Silane Z-6011 to bond the layers of glass. Apparently, Apple (or more likely Foxconn) is shipping these products so quickly that the evaporation process is not complete. However, after one or two days of use, especially with the screen on, will complete the evaporation process and the yellow “blotches” will disappear.
