Lenovo Ideapad Y510P Display Flicker

Hello! I have had this problem for a LONG time now, and it is getting very frustrating now. Whenever my screen has a large area of a dark color, my whole display begins to glitch out and flicker. Not only do I have this problem, but there is a problem where there are pink and green areas covering places where it shouldn't be, if that makes any sense, I don't know how to explain it. I have tried so many ways to fix it, but none have worked. I had reinstalled my drivers MULTIPLE times, I had sent it back to Lenovo for repairs, I had unplugged some cables that people had said would fix it, but still, the problem still persists. I do not know what could fix this, and it is so aggravating! It seems like everyone who had this issue as well can never get it fixed either, and their thread gets suppressed and never to be heard from again... any help is appreciated at this point, I can't even bear to look at my laptop screen anymore because the flashing and flickering irritates my eyes. This seems like a problem with ALL y510p's, and I don't understand why anything can be done about it. Thanks in advanced.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510P Display Flicker

Hello dietzc

 

Thank you for using the Lenovo forum,

 

I am sorry to see that someone has not got back to you yet. I can see you mentioned that the device has been to lenovo already? Can you advise on what they did? The best thing to do will be to have the device repaired by them as if it was a failed repair they will book it back in again and fix it. Sounds like a the display may need replacing.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510P Display Flicker

Thank you for your response! I don't remember specifically what they had fixed, but I know that once I had received the laptop back, the issue had stopped for only a month or two, then it had reoccurred. And is it possible to get Lenovo to repair it again although my warranty on the laptop is over? Thanks again for the response!

Bump... at this point it seems like there's absolutely no solution, seeing as nobody is willing to help, plus the issue has only gotten worse than when the thread was first created

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510P Display Flicker

It has basically been 5 months since this thread has been made, and only 1 person had even attempted to help. I would've expected better service from the forum mods to try to at least try and support someone who needs urgent help to even use their laptop. Goes to show you how much I was right about Lenovo support throwing these threads under the rug so it doesn't gain exposure. Why did this product even stay in production and not get recalled with the number of issues it has? This is not the only issue I have with this product, but it is the main concern I have with it. This is ridiculous how many people have this issue and to no prevail, not one person had found a permanent solution for it yet.
