Flashing (ghosting) on screen when playing DVD's or VCR tapes

When I play DVD's or Video tapes on my Philips combined player I get periodic ghost images flashing up on the screen of my Digimate TV. These images appear to cover about half the screen  from the bottom of the screen and towards the right of the screen.

I've had a similar problem, It was not the TV or the DVD player but the SCART junction box (a separate unit that automatically sent the live input to the output SCART socket, to fix I just uses a spare empty input socket.

if you don't have one of these units try with a different SCART socket or AV input also try replacing the leads between the player and TV.

IMAGE STAYS ON FOR AN LONG TIME


Sounds possibly like image retention. If you watch the same channels often any recurring text, logos, or graphics, especially white colored, can ghost on the screen.(playing the same videogame for a long period can also have the same effect) Watching other programs or channels will cause the ghosting to disappear.

To prevent image retention you need to activate the TVs anti image retention mode(Called ISM Method). On Zenith and LG (the manufacturer of Zenith T
s) plasma TVs open the TVs menu, select the Option section (picture of a briefcase with a wrench). Select ISM Method and change it to Orbiter, this is reccomended if you watch programs or channels (or play videogames) that have still images for long periods of time. It moves the image a little every couple minutes.

If watching others channels or programs doesn't make the image disappear, change the ISM Method to either Color Wash or White Wash (don't use White Wash frequently, it over excites the plasma gas and can shorten the life of your TV if overused) for a few minutes and then return to Orbiter.

does the entire screen have that symptom or is it mainly one side or section all the way across the screen. Does it also go away after the set runs awhile.

Good day!!!

Sorry but I can't see any previous questions from you to my email but anyways lets proceed to your problem..

If you are watching TV shows and the picture is ghosting kindly try to play a DVD movies or anything that having video on your DVD if the picture is fine when you play a DVD movies your TV is in good condition you don't have to worry about..If the picture is fine when you play a DVD let me know and I will give you next step of troubleshooting..

However if you play a DVD but still picture is ghosting there something wrong with your TV..

If you are using DVR then when you back to TV it become ghosting..It is possible that you hit the wrong button on remote..you can also try to restore factory settings to correct all possible wrong set up and also to to auto scan your TV to get back all channels clearly..

Hope it helps..

regards,
chester

The screen on the tv is flashing creating a ghost effect on the back side of the original picture, any ideas?


I'm sorry that the TV is displaying pictures with ghost effect. Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  1. Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper.
  2. Try connecting a different video source like DVD player or VCR and check the operation. If it works with another device, the issue might be with the input device currently.
  3. Also try connecting the device to a different port on the TV if no other devices are available.
  4. If the issue persists, try with a different cable.
  5. Perform a power resetting and check the operation. To perform the power resetting, unplug the TV from wall outlet for more than 2 minutes and then reconnect it.
If the issue persists, after all above troubleshooting steps, service may be required. You can click hear to setup a service for the TV.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications/additional help.

Philips tv set 29PT6231/79R. Good picture and sound feeding through VCR machine. How do I get it to play video tapes? My previous tv played through channel 7.


I'd suggest connecting the VCR to one of the composite inputs on the set (Yellow, Red and White cable). Select that composite input, then tell the VCR to play. This will you give a slightly better quality picture than going through the tuner as you did on your old TV set.

LG ALL MULTI REGION CODE ZONE FREE DVD RECORDER PLAYER VCR COMBO I paid over $300 for this combo and it worked fine the first few days. Now, the vcr wont play, it was attempt to play then just eject...


Have to take the cover of the unit and observe the vcr rejecting the tape action. If it is the take up wheel not working; you might keep the unit on vcr for a few weeks. this will dry up the circuit from condensation and take up wheel will work again?
