I have a Samsung tv model #UN46B8500XFXZA. I have 3 devices

Customer Question

Hi. I have a Samsung tv model #UN46B8500XFXZA. I have 3 devices connected via HDMI: 2 Directv receivers and a blu-ray player. A few weeks ago, I started noticing a periodic flickering of the upper 1/3 of the screen on one of the inputs. Since then, it has started doing the same thing on all the inputs (including a 4th input after changing the blu-ray's input).

The flickering is not constant. It happens periodically. It is not doing it right now, so I can't answer your question re: whether the tv menu is flickering too.

Hi Anthony,
Monitoring the tv since Tuesday, it has not done the intermittent flickering. I will continue to monitor this weekend and report back.
Thanks.
