I have a 46'' Samsung LE46C530 purchased in January 2011. The strobing only stopped when the back-light was set to zero. Following the various online guides I removed the back panel, cut jumper 852, reassembled the TV, and had it working like new in 15 minutes!

Samsung would not discuss the problem, told me that cutting the jumper would not work, and gave me a service center number that quoted £150 minimum to repair it!

I've had the problem fix itself both when the TV was on and when I've turned it off and then on a few minutes later. But it keeps coming back. I bought the TV about 16 months ago so I'm out of luck with the 1 year warranty.<br><br>
I've tried switching cables, and using different power outlets. Doesn't seem to matter. Seems like an issue with the actual TV.<br><br>
Any ideas what might be the problem? I've posted a short video if that helps: (remove spaces)<br><br>

Also, it's a very consistent flashing. It doesn't get better or worse because of what's on the TV screen in case it might look that way in the video with the ridiculous sportscenter intro <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smilie"><br><br>
Thanks for any help.
Hi, I have the Samsung LN55C830 LCD TV with the same flickering issues you & the 4X" models have. The earlier post of cutting the jumper 854(JP854) on the power supply bd for 55" model worked(JP852 for the forty something inch models I understand) .

Simply removed the back panel, locate the pwr suppply bd(pwr cord plugs in to it), now locate the JP854 jumper near upper left hand corner and snip with wire cutter. Put back panel back on and watch TV!
Note: If it still doesn't work, its probably a bad power supply bd.

Good Luck

Hey All,
I have an LN55C630 with the flickering problem. I found the real cause and repaired mine (I'm a tv repair guy).

The tv is flickering because the power supply is failing. By cutting that jumper you are just masking the failure.

The problem was the PFC voltage was way too low. It should be 390v, but was only 350v. This will cause other parts of the power supply to run on a lower voltage, forcing them to use more current than designed. Not a good idea.

The failure is due to 390v being divided down by four small surface mount resistors. They are each 1.5 meg ohms and are used in the PFC feedback circuit. As they deteriorate and loose value, they give a false feedback and the voltage drops.

You can remove one or all four and replace them with a 6.0 meg ohm, 1% 1/2 watt resistor and your tv will be back to new.

Hope that helps someone.

BTW, the resistors are RP802, RP805, RP807 & RP810.

If these pics load, they show where the resistors were, but now have a heatshrinked 6.0 meg ohm resistor there instead (actually 2 3.0 megs).

The 390v can be measured where the left end of the resistor is soldered. I only had 348v before the transplant.
