I've Tried Everything - Flickering Issues...

Getting ready to film a feature and I can't get rid of flickering issues. Have been watching Youtubers and reading blogs so I've blacked out everyting, using LEDs, have cranked my Fs up high as they will go and my SS down to the point of blowing out the picture (but found my best results at F11 and SS 1/3) on my Sony A77 with Zeiss 85mm.
