Flickering can happen for a variety of reasons, but fortunately, there are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and resolve the issue.
One common cause of flickering is a poor connection between your TV and your Bell Fibe TV receiver.
Check to make sure all cables are securely connected and that there are no loose connections.
If you’re using an HDMI cable, try swapping it out for a new one to see if that resolves the issue.
Another potential cause of flickering is a problem with your TV’s settings.

How to Fix Bell Fibe TV Flickering
Checking Cable Connections
If you are experiencing flickering issues on your Bell Fibe TV, one of the first things you should check is the cable connections.
Loose or damaged cables can cause flickering on your TV screen.
Start by checking the cable that connects your TV to the set-top box.
Make sure that it is securely plugged in on both ends. If it is loose, unplug it and plug it back in firmly.
Next, check the cable that connects your set-top box to the modem.
Ensure that it is also securely plugged in on both ends. If it is loose, unplug it and plug it back in firmly.
If you have multiple set-top boxes, check the cables that connect each box to the modem. Make sure that they are all securely plugged in on both ends.
If you notice any damage to the cables, such as frayed wires or broken connectors, replace them immediately.
Damaged cables can cause signal interference and lead to flickering on your TV screen.
