Have the exact same problem with my p40 Yoga. Been almost 3 months like this. I think I have narrowed it down to a heat issue.

Re: Thinkpad p40 yoga screen hell

Glad to hear I'm not the only one. It has been getting progressively worse on mine...doesn't seem to be heat related in my case, as it will start doing it right after coming out of a sleep state.

I have been dreading calling Lenovo to get it serviced, but it is getting to the point where I cannot even use it.  One time the screen went black and stayed black, which is not the norm-usually just flashes on and off and re-centers the mouse cursor afterwards.

Anyone had luck getting their P40 serviced? I've resorted to using my x230 for now...

Just got my P40 Yoga back from service...quick turn around time, although the problem is worse than ever. As soon as I powered up, the screen started flashing on and off like crazy.

Called customer support--told me to call another number to find out what was replaced, and I am now on hold for eternity....Ugggghhhhhhh.....Smiley Mad

Sorry to hear that! My screen has now completely crapped out. It's now just a bunch of gray and black lines. The computer is completely unusable. Tech support sent me out a box to send it in for service. Fingers crossed...

My laptop has now been through service twice, and looks like I will need to send it in again...issue is still present. I am impressed with the ease of shipping the laptop in (prepaid ups next day air), but the repair service has been lackluster.
