Hello, and sorry you're having problems. We are now connected on this website- which saves you money over having a Tech come to your home, and in many cases we can fix the problem you're having. In other cases, these things do require additional parts to fix. But I can help you with that as well.

What sources are connected to the TV (cable/SAT box, DVD, BD player, etc.)?

Does it flicker with ALL sources?

While flickering if you grab the original Samsung remote and press MENU- does the MENU also flicker?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Cable box, DVD. Flickered with both Netflicks movie and regular cable. Don't recall if issue with Menu. As said, working fine now but like to know what to do if it starts flickering again.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

If you're saying the TV flickers with all sources, then this indicates a hardware failure within the TV that requires component replacement, and nothing there is a quick fix for. So if you're looking to repair this yourself, then we need to know if the MENU also flickers. Please reply back whe you are able to test the MENU so we can proceed.

Will do. Strange - been working without flickering for about 45 min now. If starts again, I will try to test the MENU and advise, Thanks.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

You're welcome. In most cases this indicates a fault in the power supply/LED board, or if the MENU stays steady it indicates the Mainboard. When these sets fail, it almost always starts out as intermittent before becoming permanent.
