How do You Fix the Problem?
While this issue isn’t major, it is annoying for many people. And, what’s worse, it’s not a firmware issue as many have speculated. According to Microsoft, the problem is with the device itself. And, it’s not all devices, only certain ones. So, more than likely, Microsoft will not provide any type of update to fix the issue.
But, there are ways around the issue. For one, you can simply ignore it. The screen flicker is not a major problem, but a minor annoyance. And, it doesn’t affect anything other than web browsing and data transfer.
Another way around the issue is to shut off your wireless Internet. It seems to only happen when this is enabled, and it could be an issue with too many programs running at once or the device over-heating a bit.
Or, if you are downloading data and are annoyed by the issue, you can just start the data download and leave the device be. Once the data transfer is done, start using the device again. While this isn’t exactly a fix, it will keep you away from having to watch the flickering lines go across your Zune HD device.
