iPad 2 Users Report Cases of Backlight Bleeding

Days after hard-core Apple fans grabbed their iPad 2‘s they have lined up for weeks, a number of users have reported defect issues in the second-generation iPad. Most of the complaints are about two issues: Yellow spots found beneath the LCD glass, which is caused by the bonding agent used for the LCD glass; and streaks of light bleeding through from the outer edges of the LCD monitor.

The yellow spots were also visible in fresh-from-the-factory iPhone 4s when it first made its debut late last year and this issue was resolved when the bonding agent evaporated. This is expected to happen in the spots found in iPad 2.

The backlight bleeding is most noticeable whenever users watch a dark scene in a movie or while using an app with a black background. In this case, the issue can be minimized by adjusting the brightness in the settings.
