Question about Sony SLV-D380P DVD Player/VCR
It sounds like the TV is responding to copy-protection on the DVD. Do you have the player connected through the TV's antenna input on channel 3 or 4 (RF connection) or through AV inputs on the set? You're probably using AV as most of the newer combo players don't offer RF output. Depending on the way the TV is made, this can often cause the set to display the brightness changes you describe. (The copy protection was designed to make the copy play back that way so it would be unwatchable. Sometimes the TV would be affected the same way on normal playback. It's why companies started selling "image stabilizers" to put between the player and the TV -- or another recorder -- to remove the copy protection. These devices may still be available. I have one but bought it at least 15 years ago.)
