Samsung Laptop (NP300E7A-S05SE) Screen

by WizardOfRock / February 22, 2015 11:35 PM PST


Recently I accidentally broke my laptop screen (dropped it on the floor and it cracked), and so I ordered a new one to replace it with.

The new one works, but there is a slight yellow-ish/white-ish tint. It really isn't a lot, and it doesn't bother me THAT much, but it IS different from before, and I'd like to get the usual colors back.

Any ideas on what I can do?

note: The new screen is the same exact model as the last one.

It looks like a CCFL as well.

Since you are a tech I'll keep it short. sees to show this laptop has CCFL backlighting so that could be damaged too.

Color can shift as CCFL age or take a hit. Example from other than your laptop:

Since just one tube or portion of a tube can be damaged that's my next suspect. Frankly I would either have it repaired by Samsung or accept it was damaged.

Well it's not that big of a deal, so I'll just accept it I think..

Thanks for answering Happy
