Flickering screen purple random

Hi everyone,

I need technical support for a strange problem on the screen of this laptop. When switched on at times, the screen turns purple or flashes purple. If I turn off and on again, closing and reopening the screen returns to normal.

What kind of hardware damage is the flashing and color change due to? The model is the full-hd and this defect appeared randomly a few days ago. Can I repair it by myself or should I be offered an out of warranty service?


thank you all and for your help

regards

I'm going to make a guess and say that it's probably the display panel, since a dead GPU wouldn't look like that, and a bad display cable probably wouldn't look like that either.

A brand new LCD is $50 on eBay with free shipping (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo-Y50-70-2...)
