I bought my Flex 3 last summer. The screen color problem occured maybe twice over the year but lasted only a day at most. It happened again and it has stayed this way for the past week or so--very frustrating. I checked different sites and forums and it seemed like it came down to either two things:
1. Plug the laptop to an external monitor (like a tv) and if both external monitor and laptop screen has issues, then it is most likely a graphics processor problem. You'd probably have to uninstall/update the graphics driver.
2. If the external monitor is normal but the laptop screen is not, then it is most likely either the LCD cable that connects from the motherboard to the LCD screen, or it is the LCD screen itself. I tried opening the laptop, unplugging the cable from the motherboard and reattaching it. Didn't fix anything though. So now it's either the other end of the cable that connects to the screen or it's the screen itself. Either way, I plan to take it to the shop (Microcenter.com says they do all LCD repairs starting at $120) because I don't want to risk damaging the LCD screen or the touch screen pannel if I try to do it myself.
In any case, it seems like Lenovo needs to get on this!

Same problem here, it's all GREENISH, I found out that on the RGB scale, the RED color is totally missing (it is reproduced with BLACK color).
Change ribbon LCD cable or the whole LCD screen?

I am having the same problem. The whole screen is reddish and there are always ghost images imprinted of everything else. Has Lenovo done anything to solve this? It is impossible to work on this kind of screen.

It is frustrating to see that Lenovo does not even care enough to answer to these forums, I have this problem now and my warranty ran out before this problem happened.
Searching online it seems this is a common problem with this model, I am surprised Lenovo has not published a solution yet. Has anyone found a solution yet? or do I have to forget about Lenevo?

I have the same problem too. I brought it to computer shop and they said that my lcd screen is problem. The price to repair it is quite expensive for me. I hope that Lenovo have solution about my problem

I have tried all I can based on my little skill but nothing else worked. People told me my LCD was bad but I decided to upgrade to the next windows 10 version and after the upgrade, everything became fine. So I suggest you upgrade or simply reinstall windows. Thank you.
