Sorry to hear that, this test also confirmed it is failing backlight problem in TV which is causing strobe effect/ flicker. I'm sorry for this news, backlight LEDs inside screen is failing that is why inverter section on power supply board goes Off and back On that you see as strobe effect. I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. Usually Sharp TV comes with 12 months manufacturer warranty so please call on number written on warranty card that came with the TV to get it repaired/ replaced under warranty.

I hope these info will help. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.

it is the inside screen that is failing?? Can that be repaired by technicians in my town, without returning it to the seller?? I bought online..

Yes, though an experienced TV tech will do this kind of work. You may please use following link to get list of TV repair shops in area which will help to get repair quote...
I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective LED strips replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make decision about this TV repair or invest that money on new replacement TV.
