I didn't try a DVD player, but my son plays Xbox and it still flickers with the Xbox.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes the Xbox is good enough for the check

OK what steps have you taken so far for this?it will just save me going over old ground if you have taken steps

Let me know please

I haven't done anything except unplug the TV and plug it back in.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK most suspect at this point is the power-board additionally these sets suffer from bad capacitors on the power-board so these will need to be visually examined first , so that means the back of the set coming off power-cord traced to the power-board and your examining devices like these <<click

Look for leaking\ballooning \raised domed tops on each one individually and let me know please

I didn't see any domed pieces.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK you should replace the power-board, get the part-number found on the board itself on a stiky label or etched on the board and usig the part-number only go to www.shopjimmy.com <<click, if they do not have it google the part-number.

Just as an inform you need to use the part-number because there may be upto 5 different boards in the same model set all not compatable with one another

Let me know if you need more info

I saw two of the larger cylinders in the middle that are very slightly domed, but nothing like in the pics on the link you sent.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 1 year ago

No they are domed anyhow, it was just a check and does not change diagnosis please replace the board its unstable

Thanks

Just to be clear before I order the part, my TV flashes or flickers, but I can still see the TV show that is playing via Direct TV or Xbox. You say order a new power board? Is there a way for me to take a picture of the back of the TV and send it to you so you can tell me exactly which part is the power board?
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 1 year ago

I am not sure what you mean by that?do you mean the picture is not affected?

TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 1 year ago

You can send me a pic using the paperclip on your toolbar the powerboard is traceable by simply following the power-cord to it its about 10 inches by 10 inches
