The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has been around for a while now, but it looks like many units are starting to face severe display problems. Obviously, it often happens with touchscreen devices to face such problems once their warranty period is over, but this might turn into a serious PR problem for Microsoft if the number of affected units keeps growing.
As revealed by this thread on Microsoft's support forums, the Surface Pro 4 has been hit by these issues for more than a year already. To make it even worse, many of the affected units started to show the symptoms after the end of their warranty period.
A website called Flicker Gate has been set up by the owners of Surface Pro 4 convertibles who ran into problems with their devices and the front page says it all: "We are 1800+ customers who lost $2.8 Millions+ due to faulty/defective Microsoft Surface Pro devices. Microsoft's Support team is disregarding our issue" However, Microsoft recently issued a short statement that confirms they are aware of the problem and the owners of defective Surface Pros should get in touch with the company's support team.
According to the aforementioned website, the screen problems return even after 3 or 4 consecutive replacements. The solution? Ice the Surface Pro 4, as you can see in the movie below!
