Thanks for the info.- Does the picture flicker regardless of what video source is being played on TV?- Can you provide bit more details of 'flicker', is the entire screen/ picture flicker or part/ section of screen flicker?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes it is all just flickering
Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
OK, so picture flickers on entire screen and no matter what video source is being played.- How old is the TV and is it still under warranty?- Also, press menu button on TV or its remote, do the menu screen graphics also flicker?

Expert:  Shahid replied 1 year ago.
OK, is there another TV available nearby to see if it displays normal/ flicker free picture?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes that tv is fine

OK Daljit, please unplug TV power cord from wall socket for 10 minutes to reset the TV, replug back in, turn it On and check.If problem persist then unfortunately it seems backlight system in TV is causing the problem and possible cause would be one or two failing LEDs inside screen the reason of flickering. 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. Any other attempt to fix the issue would need to take off back cover of TV that would void the warranty. I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.Thanks.
