it is really very possible that the cause is the screen is reacting in multiple places to almost invisible traces of grease from fingers, triggering the screen to react in multiple ways and directions all at the same time.....this would show up on a cpu stress test. when i disabled the screens human interface in device manager my flickering almost completely stopped......the screen was still active to the stylus so still flickered a little because of residual finger grease( and probably other goo) when i cleaned the screen with alchahol wipes and re enabled the human interface the flicker was completely gone, i had flickering for months before this
hi I'm from Brunei. how do you guys get the replacement of the sp4 by any chance? i can't even contact the support team from brunei cos brunei is not in the listing of the region in the phone number option. tried their Instagram, but they ask to contact their support and nothing working out.
@shanna3229 Replacement is really a gamble as far as I know but it's your only option to get this off this issue. MS provides 3 years coverage for FlickerGate affected devices so its better tho replace it early so that your replaced device have enough warranty remaining in case it turns out to be defective later
@siamak49 Sorry, the problem persists, how ever it seems going to safe mode does some good. I tried disabling the error reporting on safe mode and no flickering for 2 days. Again uninstalling the Intel graphic card in safe mode and flickering stopped for
some time. In all these operations that weren't permanent, safe mode was the common operation between them.
@amethystnw That's amazing! What I have been thinking about is making an application that gradually changes one of your pixels on-screen so the screen updates, similar to how showing seconds on the clock also updates the screen, but an 'always-working' version.
About the second idea, you can get HDMI screens from companies like Waveshare that also offer touch support, and are portable! For example the screen featured here. I've got one, but need to find that annoying Mini DisplayPort to HDMI converter!
@leandro said in Screen Replacement:
I would also like to know if replacing the screen will stop the flickering issue. Or is this just a temporary solution until some other hardware issue damages the new screen?
Fixed my Surface. New screen is wonderful.
I tried this - Ran Trailer's in Windows Movies and TV app reduced the size, I could live with that but no still flickers, but after I switch off the app everything goes cool and flicker stops grrrr!!! Thanks for the suggestion.
