Whenever I'm using battery power my screen flickers like crazy. I've plugged it into several other HDMI devices and the flickering does not carry over. I've seen a lot of posts on here about driver updates / Intel Management Engine updates / Power Option changes and nothing I've tried so far has made a difference.

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.
Have you had any recent updates at all?
Try to download the Chipset drivers for the unit from the support page.
Make sure to reboot after an update on the unit.
Also, Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.
(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal
Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately this did not fix the issue. I installed all of the latest drivers and BIOS updates but still no fix. I would however say that the screen seems to flicker more frequently now but perhaps this is just a coincidence.
Hard restarting the device also had no effect.

I have exactly the same issue : when on battery, screen flickers, despite all drivers updates.
Can anybody help ? Software issue or we need the change the screen ?
Many thanks for your help
