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.

Re: Flashing (ghosting) on screen when playing DVD's or...
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.

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.
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..
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.
No,the DVD player build in tv can't record,only play DVD Disc only.Want to record personal VHS tapes only to DVD Discs,must have a seperate device unit VCR/DVD RECORDER device player not a device unit VCR/DVD PLAYER.Connected to the tv record VHS tapes to DVD Discs.
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?
Connect one end of the VIDEO (yellow) CABLE to the AV1 in VIDEO jack on the back of the TV. Then connect one end the AUDIO (red and white) CABLES to the AV1 in AUDIO L and R(left and right) jacks on the rear of the TV. Connect the other end of the cables to the appropriate color on the DVD player (yellow to yellow etc.)
Press the CH + or – buttons on the remote to scroll the channels until AV1 appears in the upper left corner of the TV screen. Slide the TV/VCR/ACC switch to the VCR position. Insert DVD into player and press PLAY.
