ThinkPad Carbon X1 (Gne 5) screen flickering problem

Hello, 

I bought a thinkpad Carbon X1 (5th gen) 2 months ago. 

 

The screen of the laptop flickers as shown in the attached video. This happens only at some places, for example its fine at my home but it flickers if I use it in my office.

 

Did any body have this type of problem?

Hi VCGvirus,

 

Greetings from Lenovo.

 

For the mentioned issue, does the flickering issue appears when the adapter is connected or only on battery?

Hello Ashwin_Lenovo, 

thanks for the response. 

Flickering happens on both adapter connected and on battery conditions.

 

Regards,

Vaskar

Same problem here, with a brand new X1 gen 5. Started after 2 days of use. I have found no pattern so far, it appears to be random, although slightly more often when on bateries.

Has anyone received an answer/solution? I find my 5th Gen X1 flickers almost only on batteries.

Re: ThinkPad Carbon X1 (Gne 5) screen flickering problem

When Wfi card is trying to communicate with an AP with a weak signal, it boost the signal and then a RFI interference with the video cable cause the flickering. The only thing i found to resolve it it's to go in the Wifi setings and put the signal to medium. It work.
