Sounds like a dry joint or a loose wire.

Firstly though check that the coax is on firmly as it may be the problem. To check its not at the antenna end of the coax remove it and place a wire coat hanger or even your finger on the tV antenna inlet and see if it still flickers. If not then start investigating the antenna and coax.
However my bet is a dry joint on one of the SUS boards as this is fairly common on Vizio and LG Tv;s as there was a whole bad batch out of Korea.

Constant clicking on all audio channels


If all connections are good, I would suggest its picking up "spurious" signals from something electrical. There could be something (Even a fluorescent light flickering , which the receiver is picking up. Check around for something flickering or turning on and off. Electrical "spurious" signals can be sometimes difficult to detect but it seems that may be your problem. You may have to go round the house switching off 1 electrical appliance at a time ( And lights) to see which one is doing it. LED transformers for low voltage lighting can do it as well. Hope this helps, Cheers

Wd65738 flickering


I had a TV do that about a year ago, the repair man said it was the color wheel inside the tv. I changed the bulb to see if he was BS'ng me and eventually got the manufacturer to send a color wheel and I change it myself, was very easy...TV works fine ever since. Hope this helps

32" 32lc7d after a few minutes, flickers, then goes dark.


There are no fans in this model but it looks like either the backlights in the screen are breaking down after they have warmed up or a problem in the inverter board, again part of the driver circuit breaking down after a period of time. They inverter boards can sometimes be replaced seperatly but usually come with a new screen which if the backlights are at fault then the screen would need to be replaced.

Flickering/jumping picture


I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. TV WAS FINE UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO. OF COURSE ITS OUT OF WARRANTY. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ, AND BEEN TOLD, IT IS THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE UNIT. IT IS DEFECTIVE, OR IT OVERHEATS AND TRIES TO SHUT DOWN. A LAW SUIT IS IN PROGRESS AGAINST WESTINGHOUSE TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER. KINDA REMINDS ME OF THE XBOX 360'S WHEN THEY CAME OUT. ALL YOU CAN DO IS TAKE IT IN FOR SERVICE. OR, YOU CAN KEEP TURNING IT ON AND OFF, LIKE I DO. I HAVE HAD THIS TV ON ALL NIGHT BEFORE WITH NO PROBLEMS. AS SOON AS I START CHANGING STATIONS, OUT IT GOES. GOOD LUCK. WESTINGHOUSE WILL NOT EVEN EMAIL ME. I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES TO CONTACT THEM. I HAVE HEARD FROM THE LAW FIRM IN CALIFORNIA THAT IS GOING AFTER THEM. GO ONLINE, AND JOIN THE CRUSADE.

Headlights flickering


This could be caused by a lot of different things,,but usually it is the fault of the Headlight Relay.
Try replacing the relay before going further.
