You can obviously check for battery power first or it will be due to bad inverter in the system. You can contact the manufacturer and replace the hardware part.
Flickering screen problem
There is chance that your laptop screen could flicker sometimes. If this flickering goes to a bad condition it will distort the screen parts. Sometimes it might be due to back light tube issue or bad inverter. The loose connection arises between the LCD screen and video circuitry might also cause such problems with your system.

If your laptop starts to flash on and off while its on battery, and gets alright when you plug your system into the main power, it is the problem of your battery. If it shows the problem with and without connecting to main supply and is worst without main supply, then it is the problem of inverter which gives power to your back light. You can replace the inverter easily as it is a card.
