34 fps instead of 24 fps mixup.

It took months of wrestling to get the purchase order paperwork through for the processing so by the time i got the footage back i had completely forgotten about this. Transfered to DVCAM by the way.
The problem being now that for 3 shots I have a terrible strobing effect.
I've been playing around to try and boost the speed back up, which helps with synching the sound but the strobing is still distracting.
Anyone else be able to clean something like this up in post? I'm cutting on avid media composer right now and not quite sure how to work on this.
Is the problem fully built into the negative or could I get the lab to retransfer it and adjust for the fps mess up?

But it's only three shots. The right solution is to re-shoot or cut around it.

the stuff under the same lighting setup shot at 24fps looks just fine.

That's tought to fix. I assumed by "strobing" you meant that you'd sped it up to normal speed for sound sync, and that the result was jumpy (which I would expect).
If the strobing light source is the only one in shot, there are several approaches - the simplest one, but one I've found to work really quite surprisingly well, is a Virtualdub plugin called "deflicker". It's free, and you could try it.
Unfortunetly, if your flickering source is one of many in the frame, and you can't separate them, you are thoroughly buggered.
