SAMSUNG A71 Flickering Screen Problem

I have been experiencing screen flickering issues on my A71. Most of the time I get green or red flashes/flickers on the screen. I have never dropped my phone and I never got my phone near the water also. I have this phone for 2 years now and the issue only occured this October 2022. I did everything including, installing the latest updates, entering safe mode, wiping the cache partition, and even factory resetting my phone but nothing worked. 

Do you guys have the same experience? If yes, please let me know and if you can provide any solutions that would be greatly appreciated.

How did it happen though? I already have the phone for 2 years and there's been no issue at all until now. I also never dropped it or anything.
Galaxy A
most likely normal wear and tear, suggest report this under send error/feedback on members app and call or chat samsung to air your concern aswell

Same! I experienced the same after I installed the latest android software. This month also October 2022 it happened.

I have seen some A71 users in facebook also having the same problem. They said screen replacement is the only solution which is 8k pesos but I am still hoping that this is only a software issue, not a hardware one. You should submit a report here in the members app so that samsung knows the issue.

Thanks! I did submit already the issue. Might visit within this weekend to Samsung. Geez! If it is 8k pesos, I better buy a new unit instead..though I love this phone. Oooff! 😵🤦‍♀️

I love this phone too it's been with me for 2 years it's kinda sad that it just had this annoying flickering issue. I'll try to wait for the Android 13 update first maybe it's only an issue with the software. 8k pesos is crazy expensive just for a screen replacement 😔

I had this since far it hasn't given me any problem, except just this issue on screen flickering after I downloaded the new software.
