Check the cabling. It sounds like the cable has a broken wire, or the end(s) are loose.

    I have had very poor luck with monster cables. I make my own out of RG59 90% braided copper sheilding. The way to check the cable is to put an ohm meter on the center conductor on both sides and wiggle the ends around (one at a time). Then do the same thing with the outside conductor. typically what happens with Monster cables is the soilder breaks, or the wire brakes at the soilder joints. Give that a try, or Try a different cable.



    when it flicker's does who whole image flicker? or just one color. With component video the green is the black and white picture, the red and blue are the cover overlays. So the reason why I ask is the likelihood of all three cables failing is slim. If the picture cust out, try using a regular patch cord to the green to see if that resolves the issue, If it's the color that keeps cutting out, then try the same thing on the blue or red input(s)

How to connect Sky digibox & DVD recorder to Samsung UE46ES6300 TV


Buy 2 hdmi leads and use one to connect sky TV decoder to the hdmi 1 socket on the back of the TV and if your DVd recorder has an hdmi socket attach it to hdmi 2 or leave it on the scart socket
as you don't name your dvd recorder the connections available are unknown
hdmi is the best followed by component which requires a 3 cable lead 3 video (video is red green blue plugs ) audio is red and white which is a 2 wire lead which all are needed to get video and audio to your TV
scart is the lowest quality along with composite video

It sucks to see ALLLLLLL these solutions, when I have the solution. Turn off DEEP COLOR in the video settings. It will immediately stop. If it doesn't, then you don't have the typical snow/flickering problem.

Lg plasma


there are 2 types of flicker, one is the lamps that drive the display and the second is the sync signal of the video.
I assume the video sync is the flicker you see,
I would try connecting a different way to make sure it is not the tv,
connect using the aux /rca connectors to cable box.
and or connect using the cable direct bypassing the cable box.
I have seen several complaints about the hdmi cable signal being incorrect in some way,
this is the same issue that the svideo connector had in its early adoption signal was too hot or too low.
another thing to watch out for is the low light sensor on the front of tv if it gets an incorrect reading it can flicker the back light though it should be slow in doing so.
some times the flicker you see is not flicker but ac running through the sides of the picture from an ungrounded cable source.
how does it perform if you play a dvd player , with and without the cable box connected.

Screen flickers on / off when run through receiver


No solution, but I have the same problem with my Panasonic plamsa TH-50PE700U with a Yamaha RX-V2700 receiver. I don't think the cables are a problem. If I turn the TV on and off about 20 times the system stabilizes until I turn it off.

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
