Re: tv flicker

First make sure the set is off, and unplug it. open the back and pull out the main board (you may have to disconnect some connectors, make sure you remember where they go, perhaps mark them with color markers) Look for bad solder joints in the power supply (where power comes into the set). There is a group of 4 diodes some cap's and resistors and a small box (the relay) it not necessary but a good idea to unsolder with some solderwick then resolder all those leades. If there is bad solder there most likely it's in other sections as well so look all around and "touch up" areas such as both horizontal and vertical. I suggest using a 25 to 35 watt soldering iron with a "medium" flat tip. I do not like soldering "guns" they get too hot. Also there is a larg transformer with a wire going to the CRT (picture tube) Do not attempt to disconnect it, this is the high voltage anode, disconnecting should be left only to a pro, the CRT can hold up to a 30K HV charge even when the set is not plugged in. Hope this helps!

Screen flickers upon power up

Looks like your picture tube is dying, or there is a bust capacitor(s) inside...I'd recommend taking it to a service shop to get it repaired.

TV picture flickers

If your DVD player is separate from your tv, you might have a loose cable plug or connection. Depending on the type of flicker you have, a vertical circuit loose connection would cause this. If you could connect it to a cable or antenna it might tell you where the problem is located. A faulty circuit in the DVD might cause this too. Stargazer

Flickering Picture?

Your set might have a high voltage leak and that is the noise you hear when is showing the screen problem or even maybe an arking too ,either one is related to the high voltage and it can be dangerous,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to see where is arking and replace the part with an exact replacement but if the set has a leak you will not see it and is not safe to be close to it,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.
