Yoga 3-1470 Laptop - Screen Flickering - Windows 10

2016-06-09, 2:33 AM

After upgrade to Windows 10 my screen continously flickers. :smileyfrustrated:

 

Importanct Note: the screen flickering issue and associated  BIOS update solution in the support forum is for Yoga 3 pro 1370  and cannot be applied to Yoga 3 1470 (i tried to update the BIOS); 

 

Troubleshooting Done - No Change- Still screen flickers madly: :smileyfrustrated:

 

BIOS Update - Update BIOS to bacn99ww; (Did Lenovo forget to add the screen flickering resolution to this BIOS update to Yoga 3 1470 Model?)

Display Driver Updated : firstly with driver on lenovo page and then the latest one from Intel Site. 

Changed the display and Battery Setting.

tried everyting defined in the Yoga3 Pro screen flickeing topic.  Nothing works.

 

It work fine with external connected monitors, but can't carry a monitor everywhere this is now a massive nuisance. 

 

Can any of the expert here provide some help and assistance.

Welcome to Lenovo Forums Rumlee.

 

This has been commonly linked to a faulty connection somewhere along the LCD cable (connections/cable itself):

 

  1. At the terminal in the display itself
  2. Along the cable which is a result of it being “pinched” or crimped
  3. At the terminal on the motherboard

If you notice the flickering resolving itself after flexing the screen (lightly) or that the problem only occurs in certain orientations then you are likely experiencing a wiring issue.

 

If the screen only flickers at the start screen then it is possible that your drivers are out of date and you will want to update those before continuing. Please go through HMM (Hardware Maintenance manual) for better understanding.

 

If you are convinced it is a hardware issue then you can remove the LCD bezel (the plastic rim that surrounds the screen) and check the terminal connection at the display.

 

If you notice that the cable has an issue then you will likely need to replace it. If that doesn’t resolve the issue then I would suggest you visit the nearest Lenovo service centres for hardware assistance.

 

Update us how it goes.

Hi Shashi thanks for your response.

 

1. I can confirm there was no hardware issue, as this system was function perfectly on Windows 8.1 without any issue.

2. I have the latest diaplay drivers installed on the laptop. 

3. after flexing or changing to tablet or laptop mode there is no change still flickers.

 

1. one thing i have noticed is that once the flicekring starts the keyboard and screen goes into sleep mode constantly and even the external screen is turned off.

2. Then moving the mouse pointer wakes the system up but the laptop screen still flickers and the login prompt is presented and keyboard on the laptop work intermittently. i have type single letter multiple time.

Would a return to Windows 8.1 be a better proof of a "no hardware problem"? I would spend the time to reconfigure and likely stay at 8.1 without any problems. I still do not see what is better about 10.

I've actually just started having this issue a few (Windows)builds ago. I'm currently on 14376 and it's stil happening.

 

I'm kind of thinking software as it started happening after one of the updates, but I can't be 100% sure. Rotating the display around doesn't change the flickering at all.

Also as a side note, it seems to happen a lot when moving the mouse around, as if it's somehow triggered by the screen redrawing.
