Lenovo Yoga 730-13 screen flickering issue

2019-02-23, 19:29 PM

This seems to be  a problem with many yoga 730-13 users, My screen keeps flickering, to a point where i constantly have to adjust my screen to stabilize the screen. Sometime it gets unbearable to a point where I cannot even use my laptop anymore. This has happened to me previously and at first i installed the new BIOS update and did whatever Lenovo told me to do, but it did not work. Eventually, my laptop would not turn on for some reason. I did send it back for repair, and the laptop seemed to be working fine for that first week, then the screen flickering issue happened again. At this point, I am lost at what to do? has anyone else found a solution to this problem? is there a way lenovo could possibly recall this model, or atleast give our money back since this seems to be a manufacturer issue?

Solved! See the solution

I don't see a recall on this model, but I can certainly see how numerous repair attempts can be frustrating.

 

I recommend getting in touch with Lenovo support and asking for a case manager. They may have more options available (such as a replacement) than regular customer support.

 

Hope that helps, and good luck!

I had the Lenovo Yoga 730 I7.

I've actually figured out what the issue is with the screen flickering. I had to replace the yoga 730 three times. And all three yoga 730 had exactly the same screen flickering problem. 

 

It's not a software update issue. It's to do with the wire connected from the mother board to the screen. The wire doesn't have much slack when opening and shutting the laptop lid. That's what makes it flicker. I decided to swap my laptop to the X1 Carbon. So much better..

 

I would say Lenovo needs to do a recall on these laptop's.  I've heard a number of customers with the exact same problem.

When you say "swap," did you find some way to return it to Lenovo, or you should ate the cost?

I didn't return it to lenovo. I returned it to the store. And they sent it to the warranty team. However the store I brought it from were very understanding and allowed me to exchange and pay the difference for the x1 carbon.

Glad it worked out for you. This is a common and ongoing problem which it appears Lenovo refuses to address. As such I cancelled my 730s order and went with another brand. Lucky you bought it from a store and not directly from Lenovo as I found dealing with Lenovo directly challenging.

I have had the same screen flickering issue with my Yoga 730-15.  Tried the suggested "software" fixes to no avail.  Several posters on have YouTube videos claiming it is a hardware issue associated with a pinched wire to the display.  Anyone out there have success fixing this problem?

I just sent my laptop to geek squad, and they said they replaced the LCD wire, If the problem happens again, I guess there truly is a problem on Lenovo's part and will prolly either demand a refund or a different model laptop. There is no reason we should pay 600-700 dollars for a laptop that does not function properly

@leobro, what store did you purchase this laptop from? I honestly just want to replace it at this point. Prefereably with something not lenovo

I'm having this issue in addition to my camera not working. I wonder if this is the same fix.
