DIY Solution to Flickering Samsung LCD Screen.

A known issue with Samsung LCD screens whereby the screen flickers/blinks/overlaying of pictures (or whatever name you want to call it).

The issue is peculiar to 32″ and above. The problem normally starts with the HDMI connection.

We carried out an online research and we were able to found out a DIY solution to the problem. To carry out this solution, all you need (for the brave heart as COMPLABNG will not be responsible for any damage to your TV) are:

a. Screw Driver

b. Jumper Wire Cutter

  1. Unplug the TV. (This is very important to avoid electrocution)
  2. Unscrew the nuts around the back of the TV.
  3. Locate the JP852 wire and gentle cut this wire from the middle (see images below).

Once you have carried out the above, you should screw in the nuts and power on your TV. The flickering should have disappeared.

We strongly suggest you do not try this by yourself unless you are willing to take the risk. Also try connecting different devices to the TV thru the HDMI port before going through with this step.
