Hey guys my flickering has gotten worse and worse. My tablet is still under warranty through best buy I believe I'm just trying to figure out if I should get it replaced with warranty or just do the soldering myself. Does best buy give out refurbished units when doing warranty exchanges? For some reason I never have very good luck with refurbed devices? What do you guys think I assume I lose my warrant if I tear into it and solder. I'd like to root it but have not for warranty purposes. Also I hate to send it to Samsung and have it gone for a month just to get it back with the same problem.

If you're still under warranty, you should send it back for repair. Be aware that Geek Squad at Best Buy is useless to fix your tablet, they will send it to a Samsung repair center for repair and pay the repair cost on your behalf, a fact most people don't know about it when bring laptops or tablets to Best Buy. If warranty covered by them, you don't have to pay, if it's not in warranty, you pay for the repair cost plus the bogus fee of middle man, they will act as if they actually repair your problem, the same as guys at Fry's Electronics. Anything other than computer, these guys won't be able to fix, simply because they don't have specialized skills and parts.
Private repair shops are the ones actually work on Samsung tablet but their source of parts is from Ebay or AliExpress.
Samsung repair centers actually are contractors provide services for Samsung tablets, they should know how to fix this problem now depending where you send your tablet ; if you want, be specific that battery connector should be fixed to solve this issue when creating a ticket of RMA.
Don't take an exchange because this problem exists in all Note Pro tablets regardless old or new, sooner or later, the battery connector will crack due to the mainboard sitting on a flexible LCD and frame ( this mainboard has only 3 screws to hold it, that's the reason. ) I see many users have this problem, even their tablets are only few months old. Refurbished are the worst as they are used one, did some checks and tests and ready for re sell.
