L390 Camera flickering

2020-05-28, 9:43 AM

Hi,

 

I have two brand new L390 laptops, purchased at different times, which show the same issue with the camera flickering. I am getting horizontal lines appearing almost like the camera is not in sync correctly. 

 

I have deleted and updated the drivers and it still happens. Any ideas?

 

Thanks


James

Hi, I am experiencing the same problem on my L390.. I haven't registered a support call yet, but am interested whether you got this resolved already?

 

My flicker is predominantly towards the bottom of the picture, but its apparently very off-putting to others on video calls with me - and of course, we're all doing a LOT of video calls nowadays...

Hi,

I've been having the same problem for over a week already. The camera keeps on switching on and off again.

I have a different laptop model though - L460.

Interested in how this problem can be solved...

Hi,

 

I found a fix to do with the CPU power management. There is a setting in the bios called ​Config ​tab called CPU Power Management which needs to be disabled. Apparently it can conflict with the windows power management causing issues. I have disabled mine and the camera now doesn`t glitch with the power connected. 

 

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I had the same issue in my S340, read in another thread about pinching the camera frame. 

I just pressed on the frame with two fingers from back and front on either side of the camera and the flickering stopped.

May be it will help!
