    I have exactly the same issue and Samsung are quoting £300 to fix it, half the price of the TV.

Most likely the issue in on the large signal board. The TV is going in to shutdown. Repair might run $200.00 or so.

SOURCE: tv wont turn on the timer/standby light lickers

Open up the tv. On the boards that have connectors, de-attach all of them, one by one. Use a can of "duster" to clean out each receptical, then re-attach each piece. Do this to each and every connector on the boards inside. This should solve the problem.

Connection error from ps3 to tv.

When you hit the power button from the console, hod it until it beeps at you twice and it will reset the video settings. I read this on a post from gamespot. I hope it works.

Hi iv pulged my pc in to my samsung ps42q97hd and well i start the pc up and its fine but when it goes to the login in bit the picture starts to go on then off and flickers all the time need help asap...

Check the video resolution.
firstly boot in the lowest resolution possible, then go one by one increaseing the resolution till you get the max possible without flickering.
My guess is that the pc video reloution is to high and/or wrong frecuency.
