Why does my Surface Pro 4 screen keep flickering?

Hello, My Surface Pro 4 has run into a crazy issue. I bought it roughly two months ago and it was working great. No problems at all. Then, about 2 to 3 days ago, my screen keeps flickering (non-stop too). I need to repair it ASAP. Would a factory reset help at all? I already disabled Hyper-V and did all of the updates. What else can I do?

    Open power option > change plan settings > change advanced power settings and select display and check either the dimmed display brightness is set to below 20%. If no, make it immediately.

    Changing display brightness has (temporarily) helped som SP4 owners, but apparently no one has found a permanent fix. Not even Microsoft. For the most part, the more-or-les permanent "fix" that has helped some users is to get a replacement unit. (In a number of cases, replacement units can also have the problem, sometimes even worse.)

    The only known "fixes" are: (1) Try replacement until the problem no longer appears, and (2) use a different type of device.

    The problem has been reported to MS since the earliest of the devices were available. MS has released patches, but either later patches continue to bring the problem back or it's a hardware issue that keeps making itself known regardless of fixes.
