T450 screen flickering problem

Q: T450 screen flickering problem

Hello, The screen of my T450 flickers and becomes purple when it is flexed. The problem goes away when you apply pressure on the bezel under the display so the problem must be caused by a loose connection. I upgraded the original TN display of the T450 to an IPS screen so I presume that my warranty is void. My question is should I replace the screen again or is there a way to fix the connections in the soft black ribbon under the LCD panel? Is there a tutorial how this could be done? Thank you for your suggestions!

Hi,

I have new Asus laptop with Intel 4500MHD graphics card and recently have some problems with screen under Windows 7 64bit. I was messing with color calibration and i get back to standard calibration, but now, when i switch windows/panels/anything (for example from bright to dark color) screen is messing colors - it's hard to describe, i see the pixels are moving for 1 sec. Sometimes it looks similar to changing brightness of screen. When i open picture with gradient i see pixels (colors) are "moving" and after 1 second it stops. I don't think it's graphic card related because under Linux everything looks fine.

Thanks for any ideas.

You don't typically see this kind of thing on a flat-panel display but you might want to go into the display settings and change the refresh rate just to see if it has any effect.

Hello.
I have a strange problem: my screen is flickering/flashing really bad. However, this disappears when I put brightness level in 100%.
I've always used brightness levels between 40 and 50%. Today, when I turned my PC on, the screen was flashing really bad. I tried a lot of things, and noticed, by accident, that the flickering stops when I adjust brightness to 100%. Unfortunately, I can't use it for a long time in 100%, because it hurt my eyes.
I just want to know: how can I fix it, to be able to use it again in 40-50% brightness, without this annoying and eye-hurting flickering effect?
I attached a video showing the situation. Although the cell camera may distort something, when it films a screen, it is possible to notice that the screen flicks really bad, and it just stops when I adjust brightness to 100%.
As this video has 2,91Mb and Dell just accepts files with maximum 1Mb, I uploaded it in Dropbox, and I am sharing its link. I hope this works: www.dropbox.com/.../Dell

Emachine windows 7 upgraded from 7 to 8 to 8.1 to 10 pro. Had black flicker screen problem with the windows 10 pro previously. And had other issues as well with signing in to my microsoft games on my pc.
So to fix the micrsoft pc games problem I removed everything from my pc and even deleted the previous windows so now there's only windows 10 pro on my pc.

So now I can sign in to my microsft games like bingo and so forth.

So now I'm having a problem with the black flickering screen which I don't know how to fix.
I'm current on my updates.

And here's the problem with the screen.

If I click on the windows icon on the taskbar and then open the "File Explorer" and then click to open a file like a video. And the vlc media player opens it will flicker once or twice. Or if I'm using the firefox browser and watching a video on netflix it will flicker a few times like maybe a dozen or so.

Youtube videos don't flicker and its getting me a bit buggy.

I'm loooking for a few ideas on how to fix it. My screen dose not turn black it just flickers once the players start.

But I didn't have the problem with the previous windows.

Please help me out with this. Thank you.

I have an HP Envy TouchSmart 17t-j100 Quad Edition CTO Notebook PC.  I was running Windows 8.1, but just last night accepted the free upgrade to Windows 10. The upgrade itself seemed to succeed, but once I login and get to the desktop, my screen starts flickering constantly.  I can move the mouse around, but clicking on menus / apps does not work, as the screen flickering prevents any actions.  I can use Ctrl-Alt-Delete to bring up the menu that allows me to sign out, restart/shutdown, etc . . . but I can't really do anything else. I downloaded the upgrade over the internet, so I do not have any Windows 10 disks or installers. I've seen on Google that some Win10 beta testers  were experiencing this problem  months ago on pre-release versions of Windows 10, but i didn't see a resolution. I'm not sure how to get into safe mode to see if the problem happens there too. Anyone else having this problem?  Any suggestions?   The PC is pretty much useless in its current condition with the flickering problem. Thanks,Jim

Hi all,
 
I've been really satisfied with my X230T, and It has accompanied me on a round the world adventure and it's been through quite a bit and we've bonded pretty well. 
 
Problem Description
It's still functioning fine however the left 1/5th section of the screen has begun to uncontrollably flicker in a variety of colors and sometimes just goes completely dark. This issue unfortunately came up about two months after my warranty expired when I was in the middle of China traveling. 
 
Here are a few pictures of the flickering/lines of color that come up.

Problem Isolation
Seeing as the problem fluctuates and worsens/gets better depending on screen position and movement, I'm 99.9% it's a hardware problem. After taking apart the laptop and playing around with connectors I'm pretty sure it's the LCD cable (FRU 04W1775), which I've ordered a $10 replacement from eBay.

I was wondering if anyone else has run into similar problems and whether they had a different solution or if the problem was more related to the LCD panel/LCD cable port. I do not fancy the notion of replacing the LCD Panel as it essentially costs as much as buy... Read more

A:X230T Screen flickering/lines problem

I believe it is not the cable. When the screen is assembled, the logic circuits connect to the rows and columns of LCDs (row and column drivers) with a contact tape that has one contact per line of pixels. Your tape has delaminated along the bottom. I have never been successful in fixing this problem on any screen.  Pressure along the tape makes temporary contact.  You probably need a new screen. You are certainly welcome to change the cable, since you bought one, although it is a pain to get the wires run correctly.  I have a couple of screens here and I have been buying tablets having bad screens on eBay, so if you decide you want to sell yours for a down payment on a new one, send me a pm.  Sorry

I have been having this problem for 6 months now and it's making me go insane. The problem is while im playing ingame my screen will go completely black all i can see are faint outlines of things then it will flicker back to normal then back to completely black again. This will go on for 15 minutes or so before it finally stops and it was happening once a day. Since then things have gotten worse, alot worse, Now when it goes black it will not even flicker back to normal it will stay completely black for about an hour or more or until i quit the game. It's so frustrating because I can forget about grouping or raiding at all because well, if the screen goes black im SOL. This is happening in WoW, EQ2 and WC3. I'm at the end of my pitiful rope please get me some help, if you can't help refer me to more tech forums where i can post my problem.

Stuff you might wanna know: I have the latest drivers for my video card (NVidia 6600 GT)I have the latest version of Directx(9.0c)I don't believe there is any overheating going on as i have a box fan on high sitting infront of the open case and there is an air condition directly behind the fan. Also don't think it has anything to do with sound as I've disabled sound in all those programs and the problem still persists. This is all I can think of right now. Thank you for your time.

Okay, this is a really weird problem. I have green and red dots flickering on my screen, most of them are at the taskbar, but they are sometimes moving.
Also when I try to open a window and start moving it around, the whole screen flickers.

Now, I searched abit on this, and people said that it was the graphics card, so I shut down my computer, opened it up and took all dust out, checked the card was properly seated, and started it up. Still the same problem.
So I ran the ATI Tool to check for any kind of artifacts, and everything looked fine, no errors or something. Buuut, all the flickering and green dots dissapeared when I used it, weird eh?

I think this is a software problem of some sorts, as I got a bsod when I tried to install a program, TWICE!

Anyone got any idea of what this is?

Hello everyone; Because of this problem, I had a notebook changed with the exact same one, for I'd had this problem since the first time I'd turned on the device, and I never solved the issue on that notebook, though I tried many advised solutions on these forums, youtube etc. However, this notebook have come with the same problem. At first time, it seemed like it occurred less than it did on the previous device, and I thought that maybe those solutions would work this time. But it has become more frequent when I have started to run some other applications. I have tried those solutions again; - I have disabled the battery saving modes on Intel Graphics,- I have disabled the adaptive brightness on power management settings,- I have done the BIOS update,- I have done the driver update (done it before but now I also have the problem of updating the driver since the latest update of Windows 10, I can never install a driver update now)- I have disabled the Windows Error Reporting Service and Problem Reports and Solutions Control Panel Support on System Configuration. Despite all these, the flickering never stopped!!! I have been absolutely mad after all these issues. I don't want to make another change of device. There has to be an absolute solution. Please give me a prompt reply. Thank you in advance.

Hey all,

My computer specs are:

DELL Vostro 410 Q6600 2.4ghz Quad Core processor
4 GB Ram
At the moment, ATI HD 3400. HAD a Geforce 9800 GTX+
Windows 7 32 bit

My problem began as I was playing Team fortress 2 using my Geforce 9800 GTX+. Out of nowhere, I started getting random crashes to my desktop, sometimes a blue screen would appear and I would have to restart. Eventually, I would get an error message down at the taskbar saying "Display driver kernel has stopped responding and has recovered", something like that, not the exact error message but very similar. It started getting worse after a while, not just with gaming but random desktop use. My screen would flicker and the taskbar would change colors, I would also get the error message as well as blue screen at times. It got so bad that when I logged into the computer, the taskbar and shortcuts would be purple.

I decided to try and swap my Geforce 9800 GTX+ for the ATI HD 3400 that came with my DELL. Here's where it gets real interesting:

After opening my computer and swapping the video cards, I had no internet connection. Reason being was my network adapter which was built into the motherboard did not work anymore. It would display no connection light at all, it was simply gone, fried, whatever.

Hello, 

I bought my Dell XPS 13 laptop (L321X) in December of 2012.  Beginning in the middle of 2013, I began experiencing my display screen suddenly become scrambled. I am attaching a photo of what happens.  I did not think anything of it at first, and honestly it would happen maybe once a month.  I figured it was maybe that I had the laptop on my lap and it was getting overheated.  In any event, I didn't think much of it. 
Since the beginning of this year, I saw that it started doing it more frequently.  Within the last month, it has been happening more and more frequently, to the point that it is disrupting my use of the laptop.  I absolutely LOVE the laptop, with the exception of this one issue.  Can anyone please help me understand what seems to be the issue with the display problem?  
I have not yet tried connecting the laptop to an external monitor to see if the issue is with my video drive or screen.  It's just difficult to attach it to an external monitor in time when the problem starts, because the scrambling goes away within 20-30 seconds.

I recently bought my third Thinkpad, a T450 off ebay to replace my X230 for studying. It's an i7 model with 8GB RAM and a 256gb SSD. It still has nearly 2 years remaining on the extended warranty. When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find it had a 1080p IPS screen already fitted (was planning to upgrade it) - did Lenovo ever ship the T450 with this? It's a late model one, did they introduce it later on in the machine's life cycle? There aren't any visible signs of the screen having been replaced and the seller never mentioned anything (I thought it was coming with the TN HD panel) and the brightness controls in Windows work as they should do on a clean Windows install.

When I close the lid of my computer, it makes the alert noise as if you unplugged a device. When I open the lid, it makes the alert noise as if you plugged in a new device. The screen takes a few seconds to turn on, and all of my windows which were open will be resized, and all of my desktop icons are rearranged.Happens every time I open or close the lid, and it's been about a week now.About two months ago, I actually sent this in to Lenovo for some repair from a drop, and they replaced just some plastic parts of the shell and the keyboard. It worked fine when I got it back, and once the screen is on, it continues to work fine. I'm mentioning this because I don't think the screen is becoming physically unplugged, it looks like it is in top shape after the repairs. Any thoughts?-Matt

I've got the basic TN 1366x768 display on my T450 and would like to install a full HD 1080p IPS display. I can't seem to find any information on the forums for screen replacement for this model. Most online display retailers sellers suggest that the edp cable would have to be replaced for a dual channel one. Is this correct?Also, would replacing this display for a full HD blow any fuses in the laptop? Any help on this would be truely appreciated.

Click on the link above and scroll down to page 4, you will see a FHD panel listed with FRU #04X5916. No need to change the cable, there are only two types of cables, one for touch and one for non touch (see on page 3 under "Cables")
 
Panels are not a self service CRU. If you have warranty on your T450 you may need to contact Lenovo to get the panel changed.

Hey, I bought a Thinkpad T450 back in November and really like the specs with one MAJOR exception and that's the screen that the laptop has come with. It's astoundingly bad. They didnt offer a 1080p IPS display so I went for a HP+ 1600x900 display as a sort of temprorary option, because I know that if I got a 1260x724 I'd have to invest in a new connector pin. The issue is when I went to ask an IT shop how much it would cost to just replace the screen they told me my Laptop wouldnt support a 1080p IPS screen and it would just be blank saying they've had this issue before. I've seen that people have done it on the internet so I don't really know who to go with here. I suspect they may have tried to go from 724 to 1080p which would explain it. Does anyone have any experience with this and if it is possible to upgrade is there a difference between a t450 and t450s 1080p screen  and would either be compatable with each other? As a note they offer my EXACT laptop with a 1080p screen now so again any info I may be missing here regarding why it wouldnt be compatable would be appreciated. Aren't these laptops supposed to be upgradable? It's the whole reason I bought it..

A:Upgrade T450 screen to 1080p

It looks like they only offer the FHD screen on the "S" model. Having said that, I cannot guarantee it will work, but I would GUESS that it would. They use the same BIOS. Note that if you have any warranty left, replacing the screen would likely void it. Note that the T450 series machines seem to have a custom eeid image and people who have replaced screens using aftermarket panels have reported that brightness controls no longer work.

Sorry if this has been asked before, I looked around as best as I could with the search features, googling, etc. The thinkpad powers on just fine, boots into windows, there is no backlighting at all. Had to use a flashlight to navigate. The red dot on the back of the screen for the i on thinkpad does light up though. Is the screen bad, or is the cable loose? Should I try the motherboard side first or the display?Thanks!

It is impossible to say.  The screen could be bad.  The motherboard could have a problem - most likely a fuse.  The Hall sensor that switches when the lid hasclosed could have failed.  sorry.

Hi, I noticed recently that my touchscreen on my T450 is not working.Also on my computer properties it's says that there is no Pen/Touch input available. Sometimes it appears and still doesn't work and most of the time does not appear. Is there some kind of diagnostic or procedure to check if it's hardware or software related problem?

A:T450 TouchScreen Problem

It is hard to diagnose without seeing it.  Do you have a warranty?  If you do, call support.  When the touch screen isn't visible, do the other USB devices still work?  (Touch digitizer connects as a USB device.)  I don't know what devices use the same USB hub controller, but if other USB devices are also "missing", I would guess the problem is a controller chip on the motherboard.  (USB devices include touchpad, keyboard, USB ports, camera, bluetooth, microphone)  Otherwise, my best guess is the digitizer itself.

Based on my own experience.Guide for everyone who wants to replace/upgrade his Lenovo T450s or T450 screen.IMHO it can be useful for Lenovo T460s or T460 and similar models.I spend a lot of time to collect all this info. I hope it helps somebody!And it worth to replace if you have TN screen now. LG to AUO - only if you really need little better colors.1. You should be ready to lost hardware brightness control. Brightness set at max always. Some solutions possible - read the guide )   If you have replacement screen from manufacturer or "dead" laptop of the compatible model - you are lucky!2. Sometimes you need to replace eDP cable. It cost additional money and require more skills and time.3. Screens market is terrific. Everybody wants to sell you "same" screen at a high price.   You need carefully check seller if you want original AUO display or at least LG display.Brightness control:1. Lenovo replaces the name of a screen in EDID (screen "BIOS"). For example "LG LP140WF3-SPD1" -> "Lenovo LP140WF3-SPD1".2. Lenovo writes all changed names in EDID table in BIOS. If your screen name not in BIOS -> brightness always at maximum.Brightness control (possible solutions):1. Change BIOS EDID table to correct values. Change screen name in EDID. Require very special skills.   More info here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/w550s-t550-lcd-screen-replacement-brightness-set-at-max.7741...   Users with "old" bios 1.04 - 1.19 (for T450s) re...

Hi
My Laptop is 13 months old Dell I7 5558, i was facing this screen flicker issue previously ,where i got my Laptop Screen replaced by you ,but now I'm facing the same issue . 
Previously before replacing i used to have just few flicker,now flicker rate got increased even more & Screen Goes black which is really annoying.
Even at the logo Screen I 'm seeing Green & pink lines
Sometimes nothing appears on the screen just  flicker of Green & pink lines & black Screen After that.Where i should  to remove my battery  & place it ,to turn on my laptop in this case.
Problem is not related to software, if that was the case flicker should not be at dell logo screen.
But FYI my Graphic Card Drivers are already up to date.
I Guess the problem is at the hinges or with the monitor or maybe related to mother board itself.
when my laptop screen is less than 90 degree i can see few flicker,when it 90 degrees or more than that ,continuous flicker & black screen later as like monitor looses power nothing .

Any Other Information Required let me know.

Hi there,

I developed a problem with my desktop pc yesterday. I was gaming and the screen began to flicker then the game crashed - citing "rendering device lost". I tried to re-load this again and the same thing happened again, this time with a BSOD. I tried a different game and the same thing occured, took slightly longer though. Given it was late I went to bed.

Today on loading up the sign in screen was flickering lots, I entered my password and was met by a black screen. The computer continued to make fan noises as if it was working, but nothing on my screen. This happened again. On restaring my computer the crash report read

"Blue Screen.

BCP2 FFFFF7009080000
BCP3 00000000000009ED
BCP4 B00000000

I've looked at the bug dump, but I was silly and did a system restore before this, so there's no bug dump.


The computer starts and runs fine in safe mode and without the graphics card in.

Since I've done a system restore
Cleaned everything again ( was pretty dust free to start)
Uninstalled and re-installed the graphics card drivers
Re-seated RAM and GPU
Done a memory diagnostic on my RAM
None of these have worked.
I've taken the graphics card out and it runs fine with the onboard GPU.

Some specs:
Intel I5 3570K
GPU - AMD Radeon HD 7870
Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77M pro
PSU -OCZ Core steam 500W

Hello, I'm kinda new in posting here so correct me if I'm doing something wrong. Since a week or so my laptop has been showing some weird behaviour. I have a Lenovo 520-15IKB (Type 80YL) Ideapad. The first thing I noticed was that I now have a very small bar of what is seemingly the top of my screen, under my taskbar. It sometimes goes away when I have restarted my laptop however it always comes back. The second thing is that sometimes my screen flickers black for a moment and then returns to normal (always with the bar of screen beneath my taskbar). This happens the most while watching vids on Youtube or so. I can't find how to fix this, my laptop is about half a year old. Can somebody help me please?

My laptop Dell Inspiron 15R 5520(Core i3 2370M 6GB ram win 7 64bit)  worked perfectly from Nov2012-April2016. 

Now the screen started flickering and jumping since a few days and there's a white dotted line that appears along the top of the screen that starts the minute there is any kind of display.
How do I figure out if the inverter on the screen is faulty or if it's the screen cable or the whole screen itself?
To satisfy my curiosity I opened up my laptop to find that the lcd cable was badly crushed under the screen hinge (definitely , a design/manufacturing issue! Will dell take responsibility?), and each time the screen was shut/open there was substantial pressure on the cable was what I noticed.
Unfortunately I'm out of warranty and I don't know what to do.
Please advise on fixing this issue.

A:My Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 screen suddenly started flickering and the screen jumps 1inch every couple of seconds and is very annoying.

I've already tried deactivating adaptive screen light.

I have found the solution to the EM7345 problem on the T450 running Windows 10: Sim card not detected. Just says "Insert Sim".
I have wasted one morning trying to solve it. Firmware flashing with Intel Updater was impossible, since it needs a detected SIM card (DUH!).
 
Anyway I have this little file here that solves it. I have no idea what it does except for enabling AT port. It is of course under the assumption that EM7345 WWAN card is present in your system (look in device manager) and drivers are installed by Windows Update (don't install any of the Lenovo provided drivers).
 
Just run the file once, a CMD window pops up and you should get the prompt to unlock your SIM card.

Hi, I love the Yoga 2 Pro. But i have fews issues with it. Especially when used on battery. My screen flicker from time to time. The onyl fix i found was to close the lid to put the laptop to sleep and the reopen it. Not very convinient. An other issue I encounter is the screen blanking after a while when the computer is not in use. It's like the computer blank the screen to save battery power, but when you want to reuse it again, it won't start again. THe only fix is to hard reset the computer (eg : press 10s the power button) I am running a fresh clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro with all the Lenovo Drivers up to date (exept the BIOS one) If you could help me fix my issues. I think it's software related.Do you think i should put the BIOS update ? Does anybody ever try with a clean windows 8.1 install ? Thanks a lot,Romain

Hi. My computer has just started to act up on me. When I turn it on & it begins to boot, the screen begins to flicker until it defaults to the blue screen w/ the following messages:

STOP: OX00000008E/OX800000003/OXF74EE0EE/OXED02789C

F74EE0EE base at F74E6000

date stamp 480252C2

I reboot in safe mode fine. I then go back to the normal mode & the problem begins all over again. What does this mean? Thx much.

A:Flickering screen to blue screen warnings

A Stop OX8E BSOD, is usually caused by hardware failure. Either it is faulty RAM or a bad PSU. Download Memtestand make a Boot disc out of that and boot off of the boot disc you created and run the tests. Test each RAM stick individually, by taking one out if you have more then one. Alos go into the Bios and check the voltages, temps and fan speeds and post here.
