Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console
I just connected my brand new samsung LN-T4061F to my xbox 360 Elite ... when I play movies or games I get the following intermittently... screen becomes black for a split second or it flashes bright green and goes back to normal... this happens regularly during movies and xbox games. I have xbox running in 1080p extended... Please help
I had the same thing on my hitachi tv and it was my mobo in my 360. just got it back, working fine now.

I had the same issue myself up until last week and the problem hasn't happened since. I too was experiencing the immensely annoying flickering and stuttering but all you need to do is replace the HDMI cable....
check out play.com for cheap ones - it cost me £12.99 and it's all sorted now.

If extended may mean 4:3, it could be your TV trying to reformat the image and sometimes just NOT being able to saty shiny at the 10000:1 contrast and keep up with the processing. Also: if you arent using HDMI you need to. Direct to the TV. The last thing i can think of is if you are running Audio into the TV also, and dont have external speakers there could be some processing issue. Keep me posted on how this helps i have an HDTV and Elite so can try various things. Contact me! Hope this helps!!!

Back again. There is thread on CNET about this as well. My TV has made it's third trip to the repair shop, and Samsung is definitely aware of this problem on 4065F and 4665F LCD TV's manufactured in 2007.
I tried multiple cables and multiple input devices (XBox360 Elite, PC DVItoHDMI, and Scientifc Atlanta DVR with HDMI) all with different cables, all with the flickering.
The only known solution is to have the main board replaced (this should still be under warranty (1 year)) if not they still might replace it. It would cost about 250 in parts and 250 in labor.
If they do not install it correctly (since the boards come from factory and need to be adjusted) the picture will be too dark. Tell them they need to contact Samsung to get the instruction manual for board replacement.
I got my TV back and it has shown no signs of green flickering or signal dropping.
