Hello all,

i got some issues with my Nexus 5.

After some days of uptime i do sometimes face the issue that my screen is flickering.
I do not see any direct reason why this could happen.

I cannot fix the issue by turning off display and on again.
Even if i do what e.g. 10 Minutes the problem remains.
If i reboot the device everything is normal again for ~ days.

I searched for issues but did not found anything that reads like my issue.

Following a short video of the issue.


So my question is quite simply:
Do you guys think this is a hardware issue and i should try to replace the phone?

I am currently running CM11 Nightlies with stock CM Kernel.
No custom changes like overclocking or so have been done.

Hi,

It happens since the beginning? With the last CM nightly or other nightlies?

Maybe in first try to return to stock and see if the problem persists: http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...image-t2513701.

Or try the CM M6 (or another rom)?

Have you flashed the updated GPU drivers I had similar issues after flashing them

I just recently experienced a similar flicker a few days ago on Elix-R Rom, but a simple restart managed to fix that for me

I have the same problem, i'm using elix-r rom too with elementalx 0.38 and sometimes it happens this, i don't know if it is the kernel because since i installed that problem didn't showed up

can you use a SlimPort cable or cromecast to mirror the screen to a TV and see if the flicker still happens?
So you'll know if the problem is in GPU or screen?!
