So I was reading around here about the flickering black screen because my display flickered within seconds on turning it on and I haven't had it a week yet. I read around and a common suggestion was a usb fan. I didn't believe this would solve anything because it couldn't have been a heat issue within seconds of turning it on, but I didn't wan't to wait to trade it out so I tried this fan method. I must say since screwing a fan into the back of the displays air vents my display hasn't flickered. I'm stumped on why this makes a difference all I can think of are the metal hdmi connectors are somehow overheating quickly when power surges through them. So just putting it out there that it did work for me if anybody wants to try it since it is a common problem.
