The phone has essentially been bricked! I thought I had found a work around but it just got steadily worse. I have now dumped Samsung as a brand and moved on. #neverSamsungAgain
Did you find any solution for this flickering issues ?
I updated softaware on June 1st 2019, Past 25 days onwards Iam facing flickering issues in my Galaxy S9 Plus.
No, my screen never recovered and I brought it to Samsung Authorized Service Center and told me to replace the display
:(. It cost lot of money.!
Samsung is worst.!!
I use to think that it was bad luck that my S9 plus have all flickering but now that i read all this is unbelievable that a prestige brand like SAMSUMG is not doing anything about it, my S9 begin with all the flickering and screen problems with last update is was randomly but then get worse at the point the cellphone is unusable, I want to belive that SAMSUNG have a solution for the problem they last patch did.
Can anyone please confirm if Samsung have released an update or fix for this issue as my wife's phone is now experiencing these issues.
We have tried all known fix methods NONE of which have worked.
Any help or advise would be much appreciated from members or SAMSUNG themselves.
First : Update as been delivered in some Country, check yours
Force restart your Galaxy S9
Always begin your troubleshooting with a reboot because while it’s a very simple procedure, it’s also very effective in dealing with problems that are not really that serious or complicated. A flickering screen might be a sign of one of those problems. However, instead of doing the normal reboot sequence, I suggest you do the Forced Reboot to simulate battery disconnect and refresh your phone’s memory.
Your Galaxy S9 will reboot like it usually does and if the flickering issue stops, then the problem wasn’t really that serious. There might have been some glitches in the system or some app may have caused it. But if it continues, then move on to the next procedure.
Reboot your phone in Safe mode
Rebooting your Galaxy S9 in Safe mode won’t fix the problem but it will tell you right off the bat if it’s caused by an app. When in this mode, all the third-party apps are temporarily disabled. So, if one of them is causing the problem, the flickering shouldn’t occur while the phone is in this mode.
Once the phone enters safe mode, continue to observe it to know if the flickering occurs from time to time or not because if the problem seems fixed, it means there’s an app that causes it. The next thing you should do is find that app and then uninstall it:
However, if the flickering continues, then you should move on to the next procedure.
Delete all system caches so they’ll be replaced
The Android system creates caches for all services, features and apps so there should be a cache for the service that handles the operation of the display and touchscreen. However, you don’t have access to those apps but you can delete them all at once. Once the deleted, the system will recreate them during the first boot sequence after wiping the cache partition and all of it is done automatically so you don’t have to worry too much about it. So, to delete those files, follow these steps:
After this, try to see if the flickering continues because if so, there’s one more thing you should do before you actually bring the phone to the shop for a checkup.
Perform the Master Reset
A reset will rule out the possibility that the screen flickering problem with your phone is due to a firmware issue that’s why it’s necessary to do this. Aside from that, all your personal information will be deleted so your privacy is protected. But bear in mind that all your files and data will also be deleted especially ones that are stored in your phone’s internal storage, so make a backup of files you don’t want to lose. After the backup, remove your google account from your phone so won’t get locked out after the reset. Once everything is set and ready, follow these steps to reset your phone:
If the problem continues after this, bring your phone back to the store and have it checked
