MAG241C flickers at startup or within minutes of startup

I am starting to see something seem wrong with my screen.
When it flickers, it has a red vertical stripe 5cm from the left side.

I am using a HDMI to HMDI cable from my private laptop or work laptop.
I have yet to see the error happen when using my work laptop, however it is only connected 5% of the time.
I have tried to turn the HDMI cable around. And that helped for a while. Now I see the error again.

I am still within warranty and I will make a more formally inquiry if I see it again. I will try another HDMI cable as well.

My laptop is a MSI GL63 85E, and my work laptop is a Lenovo performance model, however I do not see either of these PCs being the issue.

Any other suggestions for how to fix the issue?

Not a lot just make sure both displays using the same refresh rate and may well be a cable problem.
