    Hi all,

    anyone else got a flickering problem in a single spot (on my display it's a a third of the right bottom) on the LG 5K with the current MBP 15" (i currently can't check if it's the display or the Macbook, no other Thunderbolt 3 Devices in the household :mad:).

    Thanks & Cheers,
    Lateshift

    localized backlight flicker?

    I noticed it on my ultrafine 4k. it says in the manual that it's normal if the screen is cold.

    Mhm i let it turned on for a while, the flickering is still there.

    But I noticed it just "flickers" when I select a gray desktop background (I'm quite shure it was fine when I got it in december, i'm always using the same desktop background image).

    Thanks

    and it only happened once so far, about two weeks in after i got it.

    Mhm I got it in November and never had the problem until recently.

    I've used it for more then a few hours, the flickering was visible all the time :confused:.

    I talked to Apple Germany and they're sending me a new one :).

    Cheers & Thanks
