    Recently, my epic has been going ballistic with green lines flickering when I boot it up. The glitching doesn't affect the footage, just the monitor. It lasts for about 3 minutes, then goes away. Will come back if the camera is powered off for a period of time. Any clues?? And yes, i'm using a carbon fiber module on a non carbon fiber body. Don't think this is an issue as it is backwards compatible, also this was not an issue a few months ago. I have 2 different LCD cables, and the problem occurs with both. Ive tried taking the module off and gently cleaning the connections. The 7" monitor is basically brand new

    Interesting. I just updated to the firmware that was released today, and booted up the camera with no problems. knock on wood it was a firmware thing.... fingers crossed.

    I've had this problem with my 7" since I got it in December. 2 RMAs later and the problem is still there. Still working with RED to figure this one out. A real nasty one but yeah, seems to go away after the camera is powered up for 5 minutes but yeah, unacceptable when clients are hovering around wondering what the fuck is going on.

    yeahhh issues still not fixed.
    Seems to be an issue with the Lemo port of the 7" touch itself.
    Too busy to send it into Red. just dealing with the annoyance, hopefully one day it doesnt quit all-together on a shoot.
