Hi, I have the same issue as you, the video camera is very glitchy and grey bars and pixels appear sporadically on screen. A short term solution people have mentioned is pressing the frame around the camera, although this may be a risky fix. This sometimes works with my Ideapad S340, but my Integrated camera problems still persists.

I have the same problem, did you find a solution? I called technical support because I'm under warranty but i'm still waiting for a solution to fix this issue.

I have exactly the same problem. Since so many users have the issue, it's something Lenovo should be talking to us about. I have a month left on the warranty yet don't want to take it back to have the machine disappear for months into a workshop.

Any advice?

That's not flickering (i'd call it glitching). Either the driver or the hardware is defective. Reading from below comments that pressing the frame fixs it, I think is definitely hardware related and probably os just a lose flex/connector. 

You can find on the owner manual how to disassemble the screen to reconnect it correctly, but if you dont feel comfortable and you are under warranty, I'd advice you to send it for repair.

Try removing the AC power. I found that removing the power stopped the flickering. Also happens with the docking station monitors. If i use a dock which doesn`t supply power through the USB-C the monitors are fine but as soon as i plug into a dock that supplies video and power through the USB-C then the monitors start flickering. 

 

This is on a L390.

The latest BIOS update fixed it for me.  I just updated my BIOS today.
