Does Your iPad 2 Have Backlight Bleed? Blame LG

If your iPad 2 is anything like mine, horrendous yellow spots start populating along the edges of the screen whenever something dark is on the screen. As it turns out, a manufacturing defect in LG-produced LCD panels is to blame.

According to Digitimes, both Samsung and LG were manufacturing panels for the iPad 2 at launch, but once the defect popped up, LG was forced to halt production. LG acknowledged (and fixed) the defect, and will begin shipping panels again in the next fiscal quarter. And, if you’ve been holding off on returning your defective iPad, it might be safe to swap it out. [Digitimes via AppleInsider via TheNextWeb]
