Well after offering to pay the shipping ($30) red-cap has shipped me a new green PCB and its on its way. Looks like I finally rest easy with this monitor. Also I heard back from the crossover manufacturer, and while he was willing to help he pretty much said that they actively are supplying many eBay sellers, red-cap included, with replacement PCBs and that I should deal with him to get it replaced. That being said, for people who's sellers aren't available this could be a good channel to explore.

The one on the right (when looking at the back head on) is green with P22LDE04 Rev4 on the board.
If anyone can help me get started in the right direction for getting this resolved, that would be wonderful.
Well that's not good, if you do in fact have a green PCB, then this is the first reported case of the green one also causing flickering. Could you take some pictures and upload them? The main board in the center behind where the stand connects to the monitor isn't of interest as far as the flickering issue is concerned, so don't worry about that.
That's definitely the green PCB that's supposed to be problem free. Figures the day I finally get mine shipped we learn that its not full proof
Look on the board for any signs of overheating/discoloration. Also what power brick were you provided with? If you could take a picture of the specs sticker on that I can maybe help rule in/out any problems with that.Edited by tehpsyc - 10/10/12 at 6:41am
