Is your Lumia 930 display tinted purple? Here's how to fix it

Purple display issue on Lumia 930

Do you have a Lumia 930? If so, you might want to make sure that your phone's display does not have a purple tint to it, as a small number of users are reporting the issue seen in the picture above.

The issue is quite simple: a small number of Nokia Lumia 930 phones have a purple hue to the display Fortunately, this is not a hardware defect and can be adjusted using the built-in display calibration tools. If you find that your phone has a purple hue to it, here's how you can fix it.

To fix the color issue, open the Display setting and head over Settings >Display >Adjust Color. When you're in there, just set the Tint option from neutral to green. After doing this, your phone's display should be as good as new.

That's about all there is to this issue, and aside from minor purple display problems, the 930 looks to be another solid phone out of the gate. While we don't have a final verdict on it yet, as our review is still in progress, we have previously reviewed the Lumia Icon, which is quite similar to this device.

Until we finish our proper 930 review, you can check out our Lumia Icon review here.

Question : it is a default calibration issues or it is a physic problem?.

Because if it is a physic problem then, calibrating could solve the situation for some colors while ruining for other colors.

SK[ said,]I love how the 'fixed' picture is actually just a screenshot...

I love how nobody claimed it's a "'fixed' picture".

Nice fix, but I wouldn't really call it a solution to the problem. If you have to force your screen tint to get it to look correct, I'd consider it a product defect and insist on a replacement.

Easy fix but a terrible situation to put your customers through. What about the customers who don't know how to google? What about quality control?

Then they should BING it ;)

Hardly terrible. Assume a small portion of the people who are affected (which sounds like a small portion of total sales so far) don't know how to Google, they can simply go back to the store and get a replacement, or fix by their provider.

It's annoying for sure, but it sounds like something that can be fixed through a software update.

Quality control is well and good, but things like this slip through, particularly if it's only a small portion of handsets affected.

there must be an awry default setting. you shouldn't have to use an offset calibration to get neutral. hope they fix it.
