Default Refurb: Galaxy Tab 3 8" Flicking Image problem?


I have a Tab 3 8" that was referbished. I'm about out of my 90 day warranty. I've noticed a break-up or flicker of the image, mostly bottom 1/3rd of screen. some times full screen. I can't replicate it by twisting the screen. It happens infrequently, but I have not determined any factors that can cause it.

Anyone else experience this?

This is not a backlight flicker, it is image based.

I had a similar problem with my old phone after flashing so many different firmwares like a nutter, but I never worked out if the problem was software or hardware?!

Got a similar problem with the tab 3 7". But it might be backlight flickering here. Its always the whole screen that flickers. I can sometimes reproduce it in low light situations (at night) if I turn automatic brightness on.
