    Hi all, first time posting, long time reader.

    About 2 weeks ago I noticed on the top left corner of my screen (when in landscape mode) a yellowish tint, I am not 100% sure what it is or if it merits an RMA...

    I have read / heard that is light leaking behind the panel and that is not much to worry about, but I am not sure that's what it is (see photo links below). I am not even sure if it has always been there or not, as it is not difficult to spot, especially when you have a wallpaper, it is more noticeable with light colors and doesn't seem to be very visible on dark ones (which might confirm / deny light leaking from the panel).

    I went to the Microsoft store the other day just to check if there were any other slates with the same problem, and one out of three had the same issue, it actually had it in both of the top corners, and the guys there were not able to confirm what the problem was.

    I bought my slate from Amazon, first batch, so can't return it to Amazon, so need to go through Asus (their support guys recommended installing new drivers, but this is clearly a hardware problem, so I did not even try it), otherwise they asked me to RMA it.

    So before RMA it, would like to hear from the forum if any one has this problem or not and to check if anybody knows if this can get worse or recommends to RMA it.

    Thanks all and continue enjoying your Slate, to me is one of the best PCs I have had.

    oh god no.......having returned ipads for light bleed I was hoping the EP121 was the answer but that looks like light bleed. Load up a full screen black image and crank up the brightness - go into a dark room and that should show it up for a better example.

    Its starting to look like all lcds etc are gonna suffer some level of bleed *sigh. I feel for you but dont see why you cant return to Amazon, they sold you it and Id class light bleed as "faulty" so they really need to offer you a replacement. Amazon are good for this - email them. Good luck.

    I have noticed this on mine while booting up. I am thinking this is from the power status LED.

    I just scrutinized my screen for awhile and couldn't spot anything like this. Even made a pure black image and full screened it. There is just the slightest hint of a slightly lighter shade in the top corners. This is barely noticeable at full brightness, and non existant on any other brightness setting.

    Mine was the same and you really notice it while installing windows 7. I ignored it as it's right next to the power socket so thought, "Hmmm, bit of leak there, oh well". Nothing that bad at all.
