I have a G530 with the screen flicker problem also. I have tightened the screens as previously mentioned and yes they were loose. I was still having the problem occasionally afterwards and determined that the cause was DUST under the screen hinges.
After I disassembled the G530 again and got out my can of compressed air you would not believe the amount of dust that went flying. No more screen flicker.
Additionally, you want to remove the 2 screws holding the large panel on the underside. (The panel you remove to add memory). Then carefully remove the 3 screws holding the fan in place. You do not need to disconnect the power cable for the fan. Once the fan is removed, look at the exhause port for the fan. While looking from the inside where the fan was mounted, notice the nice pile of dust/lint on the grill? Clean this also, and NOT by blowing the dust back into the case.
As my house is extremely dusty, I need to perform this task every six months.
Hope you find this useful.

I tried tightening the screws, but still had screen flicker. Now the screen is black...nothing at all. Do you think the G530 overheated because of dust & damaged the inverter or screen? Thanks.

I've been experiencing the same issue with my G530 I tried updating my graphic drivers which solved the issue for a few hours, then it came back.
Following that I tried the steps in the thread, I did tighten the screws which were exceedingly loose. That solved the issue for about a day. Now the cursed screen flicker is back, it hasn't bloomed white yet but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
I was wondering what other steps if possible could solve the issue? It is super annoying.

You offered to take a look and see what it would take to fix.
Perhaps by now, you have an effective path to follow as I've been living with the flicker for a long time and now have some time to try to get it fixed.

Flickering Problem fixed.
I have Lenovo G530. I had similar problem for long time (more than a year). I used to reattach the left LCD cable which would fix the problem temporarity. But the flickering would start after sometime again. I also found out that the flickering would stop if i pressed down on the panel next to the power switch area (Not the power switch). I figured it must be the loose cable on the left of the LCD. So I put a little piece of paper & taped it right below the power switch, where there is little empty space without cables. I the idea was to push the left LCD cable & keep it firmly attached. I used a simple copy paper folded 3-4 times about 1/2 inch wide & 2 inch long. The paper is taped at the bottom of the top panel in a way tha it will push down on the left LCD cable. Since then, I have'nt had flickering for a month now.
This is probably one of the most stupidest fix i had done in my life !!!
