Y50 IPS screen flickering with pink/black horizontal lines

2015-07-11, 19:31 PM

This problem just appeared, and it's the second crucial problem I have with the laptop in less than 6 months of use. I feel like it's just a matter of time before the screen blacks out completely.

I recorded some of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yu_VFrCBLU

Even though the video only records some lines, recently the whole screen has turned pink for about 10 seconds and went back to normal.

Can you cause it to happen by squeezing the bezel on the left or right?

No, but I did notice a pattern.

On that video it was doing it nonstop, but lately it has only started flickering once a video was being played, either on youtube or other media websites. When I play a game it doesn't.

That's not a good sign.

Can you try running a game or GPU benchmark on integrated graphics and see if the problem occurs?

I have the same problem and just sent the computer back yesterday for repair. I'd gone through several service calls and in the end I feel it is the "cable" that connects the graphics card to the monitor through the hinge. That is, in my case any way. The problem always showed up when I first started using the computer and therefore just opened the lid. Sometimes teh problem would persist but I could move the lid a few times until the computer got "comfortable" and then it would be fine. Other times it would just continue for awhile and then stop on its own. Still others it would be perfectly fine right away.

 

The techs had me install new drivers, run on battery, use the intel card only, and such. No joy. So, it is in FedEx hands and soon in Lenovos. 

 

Here is what mine looked like.

Excuse the monitor moving. I was adjusting the angle to "force" it to happen since it was pretty intermitant at the time. 

 

Good luck!

 

ps: my warranty is like 2 weeks away so at least it happened now and not a month from now!

Old guy. Knows stuff.

When I run games even on GPU, the problem doesn't appear

As weird as it may sound, I think the issue is about power. 

I was watching a video and the lines were out of control, going everywhere, and I decided to unplug the battery cable. Once I did, no more lines appeared. At all. As soon as I plugged it in again, it started almost instantly.

Can this have something to do with Brazil (where I am right now) standard output being 220v, while I was used to using it in the U.S. at 110v?
