    Hello,

    A while ago in the summer I got a permanent yellow transparent yellow stripe on my Surface Pro 1 screen at very right from top to bottom (but not entirely uniform). I think it happened when it was still hot and it was on and I was charging it.

    At that time I read a post about it saying was due to the heat from the charging port that burned the screen or something like that. However, yesterday I read a post where someone said that a yellow stripe on the screen could be a first sign of battery bulging.

    Here some more info from the battery report (the battery still seems good):
    DESIGN CAPACITY 42,002 mWh
    FULL CHARGE CAPACITY 35,083 mWh
    CYCLE COUNT 429

    So I was wondering is this battery bulging or is it something else that I can just ignore?

    It seems so far to be something different than battery bulging, I guess some small engineering fault concerning the charge port and the screen.

    You can't tell whether the battery is expanding by software typically. You usually only really know when it starts breaking something. (e.g. interfering with trackpad usage on a MacBook) It's possibly the battery, but I'm not aware with any model specific flaws since it sounds like you went and did some homework.

    , I missed your comment earlier. Thanks I appreciate the info. :)
