Need more information. What is your device? Laptop? PC? If the screen is flickering when you are watching a live stream make sure your monitor's cord is not loose. Also, the cord may be going bad so try another HDMI or VGA cord, whatever you are using. If you are using a laptop there may be an issue with the connection from the screen to motherboard.

i have a desktop PC connected to a 49inch LG 4k tv. The flickering is random so i cant pin point it at all, might be when i watch a live stream or if i have a load of poker tables open. Sometime when just a word document. Like i can have no blinking for hours and then a few random blinks, only occasionally does it get bad.

 

graphics card is GTX 1050ti, thought it may have been the drivers and i uninstalled and done a fresh install with a version a few updates back and disable all the 3d stuff, i dont play games so i dont need any of that stuff. that helped a bit. i was just wondering is there any known thing that causes it. The hdmi cable is only a month old and is never touched the way i have the wires placed

one other thing sometimes cordless phones can cause interference if set to close to the tv or pc but usually with flickering video its either a bad connection or the screen is going out.

Have you checked the HDMI cord? It may be going bad. Also, won't hurt to check the HDMI ports on both machine and TV to make sure nothing is bent or loose.

You can get them for as little as $5.00 now.  Any one will do the job.
