Default Fugeray 30" FLICKERING issue.......

I know these are mass produced and the soldering is cheap. Do you guys have this flickering issue with fugeray 30"?

I am contemplating returning for a new one, but I am willing to solder to get the flickering to stop.

Can someone show me how? I know its where the power cord reaches the light. Or should I pay $10 shipping and get a new one under warranty - just afraid it will have same issue...

Finnex sponsors this forum, so I suggest you contact "Lowe" with a PM, and see what they recommend.

I've only had a problem where half the light wouldn't come on after it was delivered to me. In order to repair it, I had to remove the end caps, desolder the cables from the LED board on each end, then slide the transformers/driver board out from the center in order to repair the break.

Having said that, unless it's an urgent need, I would probably just exchange it under warranty and pay the small shipping cost.
