Question about Toshiba 15VL33B 15 in. LCD Television

Flickering tv screen when playing playstation games.

I have bought a new Toshiba 15"LCD television (15VL63) and a new playstation 2. I have set up the TV and it has a good picture. I connected the PS2 and it plays dvds fine, but flickers really badly when playing the playstation games. (PS2 games play a little bit better than PS1 games) I connected the PS2 to another TV (not LCD) and it works fine. I have tried configuring the screen but it made no difference. I feel that it is something to do with the flat screen but dont know what the problem is. Please can anyone suggest what I could do to solve the problem. Thanks.

Re: Flickering tv screen when playing playstation games.

I don't think it's a configuration problem at all. I do think that the set is not adjusting to the correct format. Most Stores have 30 day return policy. If it's over 30 days then they may not take it back. If you bought it online, then, the return may be difficult. If the return is not possible, then, contact Toshiba online and find a local Toshiba authorized servicer in your area. Hope this helps.

Re: Flickering tv screen when playing playstation games.

I had a similar problem show up for my Olevia 65" HDTV. I solved it by putting my TV into "game" mode, where it doesn't do any picture correction. Now the game works just fine.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
?Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.
