Flickering and No sound
100's of people plagued with problems with these including me! but oddly nobody here.
Ok I have discovered the flickering and intermittent output is due to poor quality HDMI cables. These are the thin cables that have poor shielding resulting in either interference or crosstalk. To test cables bend them in the fingers of one hand, the low quality ones are more flexible compared to the more rigid higher quality ones.
Your probably be more restricted on length with low quality HDMI cable.
Ignore suggestions that your charger or PSU is not outputting enough current or your TV is not 1080P and only 720.
I still haven't managed to work out why their is no sound output though.
Their is some talk of their being 5pin and 11pin MHL versions but i am unable to see how many pins their are in my plug. It is a 2012 version and appears to be genuine Samsung.
The MHL plug is very sloppy fit in my S3 though.
