Lenovo Y500 Screen flickers when lid is moved

2015-11-25, 4:14 AM

Hi friends,


I'm hoping for some input on what's going on with my laptop. I have a Lenovo Y500 that's about 3 years old now, and about 1 month ago the screen began flickering (no lines-the entire screen flickers on and off) when the lid was moved. At first it only did this when the lid was almost closed, but now it has gotten worse to the point that it flickers when I put the screen at a 90 degree angle. At this point I suspect it's the LCD flex cable, but I'm hoping for some input as to what I can do about it to fix it/confirm my suspicions. I'm fairly tech savvy so I'd be okay with diagnosing and replacing parts myself so long as I have instructions on how to do so. 


Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

Hi Egiller,


Welcome to the Forums  


As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with the screen flickering in your Lenovo Y500 laptop.


If the display flickers only when the lid is moved then it might be issue with the LCD cable, hence suggest you to visit the nearest service centre for further details.
