I have purchased this new Lenovo Yoga 730-15inch latop on August 31st 2018 and i have had screen flicking issues. I have updated the laptop to the latest Bios and for various drivers that i read about in the forum such as the Intel Video card but it seems to me like it has been getting worse. I would like to know if there any potential fixes to give a shot or do i just have to send it back to Lenovo to fix?

Greetings from Lenovo.
For the screen flickering issue suggest you to boot the machine to BIOS and check if there is a flickering, also move the LCD back n forth and check for the flickering. Connect an external monitor to confirm the issue. Let us know how it goes.

I will check out your recommendations later today. I was able to get a these two video recording of the screen flicking yesterday when I was shutting down my laptop but windows was updating. I will have the link below so you can see the videos.
These was also a strange occurance that happened in one of the videos that the sceen went black and I moved the lcd sceen and it seemed like the computer restarted as the Lenovo logo popped up but it went back to the window update sceen?
I will give you a update later today if i can recreate the issue in the situations you mentioned. Thanks

Hello Lenovo Support,
It took approximate 2 hours of the laptop use to get the screen to flicker and I was able to connect it to a external moniter to it. The flickering is only displayed on the LCD and not on the external moniter. I did notice that adjusting the brightness of the LCD screen by using the keyboard to adjust the brightness made the flickering worse. The link below shows the recorded footage.

Now checking if the sceen is flickers when in BIOS, I was able to get 1 flicker when i adjust/ tilted the moniter but I am not able to replicate it again to get a video recording of it. I will update the post if I am sucessful. What do you think is the issue is and do i have to send the laptop in for service?

Where you able to get any sort of formal reply from Lenovo support? I am so disappointed in this laptop. The keyboard is fails to type the o, l, k, i and a few other keys not even a month after I bought this POS. The screen flickering occurs almost every time I switch this thing on. I will never buy another Lenovo ever again. I have had 3 and every one has had glitchy problems. Just disappointed. I need to send this thing back to Amazon and get something else.
It woul be REALLY nice if Lenovo support would actually in a single post to this thread attach the 730 drivers they recommend to fix the flickering issue. I am having to use an external keyboard to get anything done. I can't even type 'Lenovo' with the keyboard they have for this model.
Thanks for any assistance.

It turned out in my case that the cable that connects the lcd screen to the mothereboard was loose. I initially called Lenovo Customer Service and they gave me two options to either ship out the laptop to them or becuase i bought the laptop at Best Buy I can let the Geek Squad take care of it with no cost to me as it was under warranty. I went with Geek Squad and since i recieved the laptop back I have had no issues since.
