Despite all the Bullshit OnePlus may try to spin on the issue, their displays are having a issue with a yellow band showing on the bottom of these phones. And instead of explaining it and helping their Customers they deny the issue exists.
Now this either comes from them intentionally lying to customers and the press, Or their staff is really that dense and doesn’t understand manufacturing. (And if that’s the case they should be fired)
It really drives me nuts to see this issue and the spin and outright censorship they are doing on the OnePlus Forums, Instead of just fixing the F***ing problem.
So here’s some basic info. The display on the OnePlus One is an IPS display LCD.
When manufactured they should have some time to “cure” that means dry and get set.
With the demand they are literally shipping phones the same day off the line (That’s a NO NO) that causes this very stupid issue of the yellow band.
So how does OnePlus fix it? They have CyanogenMod try to make the display on the whole more yellow….. (Dumb move)
Instead of just telling customers “hey we shipped your device before the display cured do this and this and it will fix it”
They instead lie, backpedal, and feed the internet doctored images and a bullshit line about its a warm display. LMAO, Is it warm cause someone pissed on it?
Come on OnePlus! Now some will say TK you’re just bashing them. Um No Wrong…. I think they have a hit on their hands with this phone. Its a beast, a monster, a M****er F***king problem for the rest of the industry.
That said OnePlus need people that actually know how to handle problems and be honest………. (Crickets)
Seriously, and they need a customer support staff that speaks English if you are going to do business here. I speak Mandarin for those of you that know me and let me tell you Google translate doesn’t cut it….
So on to the actual issue. I’ll post a new edition of the TBS in a future video.
The fix is quite simple. You can use your car (No don’t run it over) or a nail salon.
The quickest fix is the nail salon as explained in the video below.
Stay tuned as I give my full opinion on this issue in an edition of Thats Bullshit going live tomorrow

Fastest and least awkward way of getting this done: Go to your nearest optometrist and ask them to stick your phone in the “transitions” checking UV light case. Easier than a nail salon since most folks at the optometrist will actually speak english, hah.
Good idea. I speak Mandarin so not an issue at the nail place i bring the wife to
Hey. I just wanted to confirm whether this fixes the device permanently. Some members on the forum have reported that their yellow banding disappeared but then came back. However, they did not use UV light. Rather they left the screen on , running videos at high brightness for several hours so that the screen would get hot. Personally, I believe the reason that this did not work for them was that their method did not really dry the glue but heated it up and made it somewhat more transparent until it returned to a yellow gel-like uncured state.
I will be getting my device soon as well and I would like to use your method with the UV light to solve my issue. However, I just wanted to make sure that the issue does not return (aka, that it is absolutely just an issue of uncured glue)
I haven’t seen it on my device since
Brilliant. Thank you for your help. At least someone is trying to help the afflicted customers that the frigging company has turned their back to. They beg for loyalty but give none in return.
Glass windows block UV rays.
Not working for me despite biting the 36w nail UV lamp, only thing is that I didn’t remove my tempered glass screen protector. I have in total put it under for about 2+ hours. Bit of difference but not completely gone i still have a OnePiss One
