Lenovo Y50-70 Screen Flickering

2015-08-24, 1:33 AM

Hi, I have recently purchased my Lenovo Y50 and am starting to get screen flickers. There are horizontal lines flickering and the screen blinks. This is more apparent when the charger is plugged in and when watching videos. I can immediately see the flickers when i turn on my pc, even if the charger isnt plugged in. Can anyone help me solve this issue? It is really bothering me, as it has only been about 2 months since I bought this laptop.

Solved! See the solution

Ashwin_Lenovo I am having the same issue. I have a Lenovo Y50-70 on Windows 10. The screen appears to flicker more when the power is plugged in. I attached an external monitor and the issue does not occur when it is connected. I have the linked drivers installed and the issue still occurs.

 

Hopefully a resolution is known. Thanks.

Hi Markgolem,

 

As you have mentioned that the screen flickers when the adapter is plugged in, does this issue occurs when only on battery?

 

 Try to move the LCD back n forth and check for the issue. If the issue occurs even when connected on battery then it might be issue with the LCD, please visit the nearest service centre for further details.

 

Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I’m sure they will be a great help.

 

Best regards,

As far as I can tell it does not happen on just battery power. I just installed the new energy manager and the issue continues.

Hi Markgolem,

                                                                                                                              

Try with different adapter if available; also try with different power sockets. If still the issue persists then it might be issue with the hardware, please visit the nearest service centre.

 

Best regards,

Hi Kjartan1984,

 

Welcome to the Forums  

 

As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with screen flickering in your Lenovo Y50-70 laptop.

 

As you have mentioned that the flickering occurs only when connected to the AC it might be issue with the grounding.

 

You can also try to update the BIOS and check for the issue.

 

Click here for the BIOS update.

                                                                 

Best regards,
