Re: Yoga 500 Flicring on battery

Hallo!

 

Thank you for try to help me.

 

I update the ACPI and restart. My battery is low 7% and the screen is still flicring. It looks like the flicring is been more if the battery is low. It is starting around 50 %.

 

The Bios dont match. I upgraded the Bios from the support site before I make a contact with the forum and have this BIOS: BDCN71WW.

 

My serial number is R9NGCJQ2

More update!

 

After updating ACPI  it look like the flicring not start befor 15 % battery left. That is much better than 50 %. I must try more before more information.

I would recommend contacting Lenovo service centres and applying the normal phone techniques to get it replaced promptly.

 

Schedule a Call-back for faster support

During business hours, you may also engage with live chat support.
