Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Could you please tell me the actual model number, found on a sticker on the back of the tv?
You mentioned it was new, when and where was it purchased?

Thank you, ***** ***** it just the picture that flickers, or does the sound cut out as well?

There is sound. However it sounds a little bit tunneled
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 7 months ago
Thank you for confirming. The flickering is a power supply or backlight failure. You can try unplugging power for an hour then press and hold the power button which is on the bottom edge of the tv just below the center of the sceeen, for 30 seconds. Keep holding that while plugging back in and for another 30 seconds after. If no change it will require repairs. It is new enough that it would be worth contacting the seller to see if they can exchange it for you and if not they should be able to help you in filing a warranty claim with lg for repairs.Best regards ***** ***** for the news, Nathan
