OLEDs & X1 Yoga 2nd Gen

My Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2nd Gen OLED laptop is recently out of warranty and an intermittent problem that began some months before the warranty ran out is now a consistent one. The screen does not display the Lenovo logo on boot but just has bands of multicolored static across the screen - exactly like the problem another user describes in this YouTube video:


On checking around the web and in many fora (including this one), this seems to be a pretty systemic problem with their OLED displays. I will contact Lenovo tech support to get a quote.

Re: OLEDs & X1 Yoga 2nd Gen



I am essentially having the same issue in that video. My screen flickers but then will shut off entirely; at which point it wont come back on until I close the laptop and open it back up. The welcome screen never flickers, and it flickers more for some particular applications. It is always the whole screen that flickers. The problem is slowly getting worse. 


Have you found any recourse by talking to them?
