Hi,

Any help is appreciate. My new macbook pro flickers and blinks when mini dsiplay to HDMI cable is hooked up to my external 27" Sanyo TV. I have done many googles searches and have read about this general issue but can't seem to resolve this. I think the monitor and the notebook flicker on and off intermittently because the graphics card gets too hot. When video is playing it starts to flicker. I didnt really want to start guessing what cables to buy and experimenting with VGA, firmware updates, but it seems i might have to. Please help thank you.

So is it still under warranty? - might be better to take in and have it tested. Contact Apple and talk to them and get it logged in the system so that there is a history.

Standard warranty is 1 year from purchase date. You are still covered. It would be best to have Apple look at it so you know what's wrong and what solution to pursue.
