Lenovo tablet tb-x103f screen flashes and sometimes leaves on weird horizontal lines

2017-06-11, 19:04 PM

I have a tb-x103f tablet and sometimes horizontal lines flash on and off the screen and sometimes stay there unless I turn off or reboot the tablet. I never dropped the tablet and I have no idea why it does this I will insert a picture below

Hello Bokajwz

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


I would recommend that you attempt a factory reset, if that does not work, then I would recommend, that you call your local Lenovo support line for a possible service. Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers



Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

I've had exactly the same issue and haven't had this tablet for more than 3 months. Factory and hard reset haven't helped. Will look to just buy another tablet and not skip Lenovo tablets in future.

The link for phone numbers does not work. I have the same colorful lines across the screen. Does anyone have the service phone number. I just bought this in May. I guess a good deal gets you an inferior product

Try turning down the brightness on your device

On my 16gb, I have to ensure that there are 3gb free or I have the same problem.  Mine will develop a half inch interference line on the right edge.  Clearing up space has always cured the problem.

I can confirm that clearing up space helps.

 

I was experiencing the same issues and found that turning down the brightness fixed the problem. After a while the problem came back, got worse and turning down the brightness no longer made any difference. I didn't want to do a factory reset as it would have wiped out all my apps and configuration.

 

After reading this post, I deleted all my unused apps and it fixed the issue (for now). So it looks like it is a memory related issue, not static build up as some other thread suggested. It makes sense as a factory reset solves the problem but that is a nuke solution to just clearing out stuff.

 

In case anyone is rebooting to clear the flickering, you don't need to do this. Just press the power button to blank the screen and press it again to wake it.
