Also how long have you had the machine ?

Difficult to provide a conclusive answer without the machine in front of me but my advice would be to put a call through to Fujitsu Siemens and make a claim on your warranty.
i pulled the screen back so it was level with the keboard - 180 degrees rather 90 odd degrees and the flickering stopped.

Now...that may be a loose/faulty connection on the ribbon cable from the screen to the mobo.
Anyway it would still be a hardware fault.
Regarding turnaround at FS, I have seen examples of one week to over a month (and still waiting in one case), so I won't commit myself on that one.
