i have the 46 samsung , also had this problem flickering tv on all sources tried to convince myself it wasn,t there lol it was
rang makro where i bought it after a lot of mmmm ,,discussion they agreed to change it .had new set around 2 years no problems .
samsung or local engineer will call take set for several weeks then say yup it,s knackered . i got mine replaced by by quoting the "sales of goods act" not doing what it was supplied for . it took a long chat in makro before they eventually changed it . good luck with yours
