    Was this after the OS was downloaded and the device was restarting? If you can give a few more details about what stage you were at when the problem started I'm sure some smarter people than me can help you out.

    Update can take a long time. Don't rush it. Just let it do its thing and go watch a movie. Might take a few hours.

    Were you installing update through Link or OTA?

    OTA I've since sent the device back. I worked it out when I press the lock button up the top that's when the flashing screen started. Definitely something nog right

    I've seen a few reports of the Z30 screen being under a lot of pressure which often causes discoloration and flashes (one guy even reported that his screen cracked on its own)... so I believe that could be one of the occurrences since an OS update didn't fix it... so yeah, send it back...
    Unless anyone else has another say?

    Send it back, it is brand new and should not have this problem.
