I have the same problem. I am afraid it might be something serious. Have you managed to solve your problem somehow? My laptop is also one year old. I have not installed anything yet.

Re: SL 400 Screen Flicker

I have the same issue for my 1.5 year sl400.

 

Actually, it is a well-know problem in China because of the LG-Phillip defective LCD. Hope lenovo can recall all these SL400 and exchange LCD for us....

Re: SL 400 Screen Flicker

I have the same problem with my SL400 which is about 1.5 years old.
I think this is a persistent problem that is common with the SL400, a new model that came out about 2 years ago. We may have to collectively check with Lenovo to see if this is a product-specific problem so that they can fix it for all of us even though the product is out of warranty coverage.

Re: SL 400 Screen Flicker

I TOTALY AGREE WITH DENGLIAO...it's happen to me also...i just bough about 2-3month the screen slowly "FLICKER"...still ok because after 5-10 minutes will be normal....now it's happen more worse i can't view anymore even after 5-30minutes...

 

My Laptop already used 1y 4m and warranty finish already. But this is MANUFACTURE DEFECT doesn't cause by End User. We suggest LENOVO SHOULD RECALL ALL MODEL SL400.

Re: SL 400 Screen Flicker

I'd like to rejuvenate this thread. My SL400 with Intel Graphics has the flickering problem. The LCD backlight flickers and then goes out completely. I have replaced the inverter board and the lcd panel itself and the problem remains. No problem when hooked up to an external monitor, so I'm stumped. Could this be a video chipset issue on the motherboard? Don't know where to go from here.

@Walters,

I am not sure what is the cause of this issue, have you contacted to the support to get your laptop shipped in?
