I have heard about flickering more than the issue that is present on my Nex7. I saw some videos on the flickering but thankfully mine is nothing like that. It had not really bothered me in the past but it is happening more often. The best way to describe it is a perfect dark line that runs down the screen usually either 1/4 of the way in from the top left or the same from the right side. It is just like a flash of lightning and then it is gone. I really don't want to have to send my tablet in for repair and be without it or even worse get one that has more problems like screen lift. I have read about folks having to send back handfuls of these things. I bought mine at a big box store and it is past the amount of time that I can take it back there. Now that I discovered I have screen lift as well its only a matter of time before this thing goes back. I think I am going to ride it out for a while until they get their stuff together. I want my replacement to be right.
