Specs: Window 10, 4gb
I am using Lenovo yoga 500. Few days ago I notice a problem that when the laptop running on battery, the screen randomly turns black. But the PC is running properly in background. When I press the screen off button twice the display come back but after a couple of seconds it turns black again and again. If I connect the power cod, then there was no such issue.
But now even I connect the power cod the problem is same. After after a couple of seconds it turns black.
I do a little bit of research on internet but cannot find any solution.
If anyone can help me it will be a pleasure. Thank you

Does the problem occur when on mains only - the battery removed?

✔ Best Answer
Quite possibly the cord between the laptop and the screen is frayed at the hinge and the mains -v- battery was coincidence. Move the screen slowly down towards the keyboard and up again watching it all the time. If anything changes on the screen then you are on to it. Another thing that gives the same symptoms is if either of the connectors are loose (laptop or base).

If all else fails beg / borrow an external USB monitor to prove the point, although my money is on the cable.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
