Lenovo Y510P flickering screen when open more than 90º

Hi, I own a Lenovo Y510P and it's been working fine for 5 years, but some weeks ago I've noticed that the screen starts flickering or even going full black if I open the screen at 100º or so. The screen stays turned on and works fine between 0º (closed) and almost 90º. Nevertheless, when I open it more, pass 90º, it starts to flicker and go black.


I think it has to do with some weak cable or something like that. I'm kind of an expert opening notebooks and all that stuff, but I've never repaired something like this. The screen must be fine because it just happens after the 90º angle.


Any ideas where to touch and what to check?

Lenovo Y510P: Windows 10 x64, i7-4700MQ, nVIDIA GT755M, 15.6" Full HD, 500GB SSD, 16GB RAM

You have to change the Flex Cable. Buy one on Aliexpress for cheap... It is about 5 dollars. Change it fast, because your situation will get very bad and you won't be able to see something on your laptop display.
