I would first try another cable to see if its the cable or not and if its not the cable I would open up the xbox and check all the connections that correspond with the outputs because I feel like a solder could be a bit loose or something lol idk thats basically what I would do.

Are you using it in Component on the TV or YPbPr as I have one TV that only has this instead of regular Component and mine flashes black for a second too.

I tend to agree sounds like a faulty connection.
Take the Xbox Apart.
Remove Motherboard.
Flip it over.
Re-Solder all the pins for your AV Jack.
Flip it over
Also While you have it out lightly press the 2 top connector pins down on the outer shell as this helps with grounding issues which can create similar issues as you are describing.

Sometimes a 15k resister running between Composite Video Out and Component video out can fix this issue

By any chance do you use it with an earlyer model LGTV? If so, then it's a sync issue (TV's fault) which can be mitigated by powering off the TV for a few seconds and switching on/off AV mode in the quick menu.

Late to the party here but my Xbox does the same n I have an LG TV.
Black flicker across a number of 'boxes n cable makes. It's not a massive issue once you get used to it.
