Please fix flickering play-head resulting in inactive timeline
Still getting this flickering playhead issue. My interface basically become inactive when this happens. I've done everything: Update graphics card, updated Adobe Premiere and reworked my cache and ram. I've configured the graphics on the computer for Premiere and udated the C++ preview files. There is really no workaround for this? (Video of what is happening attached)

I had a similar problem and the fix for me was to switch the Project window from Icon view to List view. Good luck

Is the fix here?
I have exactly the same problem since I installed version 13.1.5 in November. I tried absolutely with everything. Adobe technical support also tried to solve the problem through remote access but never managed to solve the issue. I installed the new version 14.0.1 and for 24 hours the error did not occur even once (with waveform showing all the time). The same sequence of the same project produces the problem just at twenty minutes with 13.1.5. Anyone else tried version 14.0.1? Windows, i9, 64 GB ram, Geforce rtx 2080 ti.

This is still happening consistently.

Thank you Leticia, this was driving me crazy. Had to kill Premiere 10x a day because of this.

I found a partial fix here...…
In your sequence, just CLICK on the Wrench and then UNcheck "show audio waveform". It will block the wave file graphic and the flickering head will stop.
It's great for editing picture, but if you need to see the wave, well... enter at your own risk, lol.
COME ON ADOBE, FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!! RRRrrrrrr this bug should NOT be in PPro after all these years.

I have the EXACT same problem as in your video. That dam flickering playback head. My sequences are not that long, about 3 or 4 mins, cuts every 5 to 8 seconds.... nothing unusual. I have done everything in the book, update the gpu drivers, new install of ppro. Sometimes I will copy the sequence into a new one and the flickering will go away... .but then re appears later, when I open another sequence. A random annoying problem that Adobe has NO IDEA HOW TO FIX. They tell me to "import the project into a new one" well... that doesn't work either.
Dean if you get a fix for this, PLEASE PLEASE SHARE IT. Thank you!!!!
My system is similar
Win 10 // Ryzen 7 Eight Core 32 GB Ram Nvidia GTX 1050Ti.
DO SOMETHING ADOBE PLEASE!!!!! It ruins my concentration and disrupts my work constantly. I can't believe after all these years there are still so many dam bugs in this software.

I'm so glad it's not just me. I just got a nice new Razer Blade Studio with Quadro 5000 max q, thinking that the quadro would be more stable than the geforce cards on my desktop, but no - still getting this flickering timeline issue.
For me, I can get it to reliably occur when I try to edit Lumetri on an adjustment layer. Lumetri panel stops responding, and effects control panel stops responding. Sometimes it eventually recovers, but it seems the problem gets worse and I eventually have to quit and relaunch.

This a thousand times! It seems to coincide with waveforms that stop displaying. Playback performance takes a hit. Almost as if it's stuck in a loop of trying to re-build a waveform but can't finish.
