Yeelight Bulb V2 Color bugs


It works. No problem.


Hi, could you check the firmware version? the latest is 1.4.2_0027, so if you firmware is old, plz update and try again.


I am running 1.4.2_0027.
Another issue I noticed is that the minimum brightness is a lot higher than the first generation. I used them as nightlamps before but now they are too bright even at 1%.


Is there something new concerning an update?
For the purpose of colors or standby consumption?
Or asked differently until when is the error fixed?


I have firmware 1.4.2_0026 and it comes that there is no newer firmware?
How do I get the 1.4.2_0027 ???


@jlmcr87 @miserotia @Sven74

We have tested the consumption of the GEN 2 from the factory:
Sample space: 10 color bulbs and 10 CT bulbs.
Test Voltage: 100v and 220v.
Average consumption of color bulb is 1.06w under 220v and 0.755w under 110v.
Average consumption of ct bulb is is 0.925w under 220v and 0.66w under 100v.


I have been waiting more than 3 months for a new firmware with color fix.

Updated to 1.4.2_0030: Color mode with higher saturation.

Well, where is the supposed higher saturation? if I select pure red, the bulb is near pink? Is this a joke? As I can see bulb v2 is still in beta testing…my old bulbs v1 works well. Please take it serious yeelight team.


I have the same problem too. the red of the bulb is not acceptable. it’s almost orange!!

@dingyichen you should consider fixing this problem, or you will loose customers


Please provider information below in the list:
1、Device you have.
2、Sever you selected.
3、Firmware version of your bulb.


  1. YLDP06YL
  2. German
  3. I have the latest version at this moment


Please leave your xiaomi account, I will add you into whitelist to update firmware of the bulb to fix the issue. Thanks.






My red is also not a fully saturated red, it is closer to pink with too much white in it. I’m finding it difficult to find an accurate orange as well, with the lights either looking too pink or too yellow.

Similarly, the deepest blue has too much white in it and is nowhere near as dark as I would like it to be.

Does this over presence of white in colours relate to the issue with 1% brightness setting being far too bright?

I would like to have the firmware that fix this issue please.

I didn’t see any improvement.


I see that this issue is too old,im beginning to think that there wont be a fix for this ever,and that its a hardware limitation…But i find it weird than not all are complaining about this issue.Some lamps are ok and some not?Or they just dont see it,because they never had V1 to compare it with.

Add me on the whitelist also pls and hopefully it will be resolved.

Did you updated to a newer firmware than 0035?I really hope that it can be fixed.The Red is not as bad as it was at the start but still a far cry from V1,that is pure red.


I’m going to attempt to return my bulbs to the seller. Yeelight may be cheap but the three major faults don’t make the saving worth it, I’d rather pay more for a brand that dims appropriately, responds quickly and has accurate colour reproduction.

So frustrating, because they could have been a great product. I bought mine after seeing some rave reviews online. I’ve come to the conclusion those reviewers either had a different product or were paid for their review.


The red on the 2nd gen bulb is so bad it looks like a full on orange and why in the world the blue color is way more purplish than any other Yeelight products (gen 1 bulb, bedside, lightstrip & lightstrip plus)?

Any beta software update i can get to fix this?
