Mine flickers too, but I don't have the other problem you mention.  I 
talked to a friend of mine who is a wiz at fixing things (including
keyboards), he told me it could be just a dirty pot that needs to be
cleaned.  I haven't gotten around to cleaning the pots, but it might
be a place to start.  Mine doesn't flicker all the time so I haven't
been able to pinpoint it to anything in particular.
