After a bit of advice. After a very hot day last week I've noticed my TV has been flickering slightly and randomly across the whole screen , I unplugged and left disconnected overnight and it was fine the next day.
Cue today , another hot day and it's doing it again , I have unplugged all inputs after testing it happens across all inputs (PS4 , Chromecast) and it's still there , I am quite sure it co-incides with the heat.
I have tried all the usual picture tests , updates , setting changes etc
The screen flicker is very slight and very quick , the picture almost jumps up 1/2" and goes very white before returning to a normal picture , all in the space of a split second and it's driving me nuts 😬
Has anyone seen this before or know the cause ?
Thanks for reaching out. Do you have your TV placed in direct light, or near a window? Have you tried moving the TV to see if this still happens?
It does sound like an inspection will be required to determine what actions you can take to get this sorted. You can arrange this with any one of our Approved Support Centres, which can be found here: https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/service-centre/
No it's not in direct sunlight , it's wall mounted a good distance from the window
That link is dead , have you got a working link for service centers
Sorry about that, @Kevcrawf1211 Please try using this link instead: https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/service-centre/
i have the same issue... seems to be a hardware issue, overheating and the flickering happens, mine has got progressively worse, samsung support center were awful... found this link with a US forum with the same probs https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/HD-and-UHD-TVs/65-quot-KS8000-Screen-Flicker-Glitching-Due-to-Ov...
this is a global issue with the KS8000 series, mine lasted 4 years and then the flickering issue happens, seems samsung US are replacing for customers or lose them.... https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/HD-and-UHD-TVs/65-quot-KS8000-Screen-Flicker-Glitching-Due-to-Ov... how about getting me a replacement..? 4 years is ridiculous for a £2k tv...
