In the beginning I noticed this as well, and it was most pronounced when I would hibernate from tablet mode, and wake it in laptop mode. The problem has not happened recently after getting a few updates for the tablet. I woudl suggest making sure you have all of the most current drivers and software.
Also do you have auto rotate enabled (accelerometer based, not swivel based)?

I have the same problem. My autorotation has died completely. Even rotating to portrait after going to tablet mode has stopped working. I too, have all of the latest updates and boxes checked. Is my accelerometer fried?

Is the Active Protection System (APS) still installed and active?
Do the tablet - keys work, if you are in "Tablet-mode"? - If not do the following test:
Does the display content turn by 90° then? If yes, it looks like a damage of the magnetic sensor in the display cover for the tablet-mode or the display cable has a damage.

Go to Control panel. Set the display to Large icons. Click Lenovo Tablet Utility. A window like the following one will open:
There you can activate ActiveRotate.

do you have the part number of the "magnetic sensor",
regarding the dispaly cable, do you think it is damage just becuase of rotation? logic should affect the screen quality as well?
