Lenovo Thinkpad S540 screen flickering

2015-09-07, 18:23 PM

Hello,

 

Since two weeks my Lenovo Thinkpad screen flickers on the right side and on boot up or recover from stand by. This becomes pretty annoying and I have updated all the drivers and also upgrading to Windows 10 didn't work neither. The warranty was due June this year, so I don't know that if I have to repair it that it will cost money. But I think it's strange for a screen to be broken in one year and 3 months.

 

If you perhaps know a solution for this or know how it will be handled by Lenovo if I send it away for repairs please tell me.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Joost Kolkhuis Tanke

I have nearly the same problem. It happens not before but inside Windows (7 Pro 64bit).

 

Is there any informationen about this problem? Is it a driver issue or a hardware problem?

In my case it's the backlight that causes problems, but I think the reparation is just too much money and takes too much time. (since I can't miss my laptop)

 

If you want to know for sure you have the call the helpdesk and let them take a look I guess.

In my case it is not the backlight, it is a serious pixel "distortion". If it appears it is nearly impossible to see anything.

I had a similar problem, flickering on the right-hand side of the screen and a yellowish tint. I ended up buying a replacement 1080p IPS LCD screen for around $90. Replacement doesn't require too much technical skill and is detailed in the S540 hardware maintenance manual available online.

Hello K3,

 Can you name the brand and type of screen you have bought. Maybe I can do the same.
