We have a 32" Apex Crt tv. When the cable box or dvd player is turned on the picture flickers. The sound goes on and off with the flickering. If you disconnect the cable connector from the back or if you are on the dvd input and disconnect the jacks the screen goes to blue screen just like it should with no input. The flickering stops when on blue screen. I have tried new cables, does not work. The tv did get a little water from the rain inside, maybe this caused a short on the input jacks?
If your having pixelation,try disconnecting other tvs
from the wall.you may have a noise or DB drop off or surge issues.check all splitters from the tube to the soffit of your home.If you find one upside down out side ,water maybe be getting in.Remove all snap adapaptors,screw on only.Splltters are
cheap,,easy way is spend $3 extra a month to have your cable Co repair or replace any seeping cables or adaptors and/or splitters.

I'd guess it is not a bulb issue if the audio also stopped working. Check your input source, connections and the like. Try using a different input (ie input 4 or the front AV connectors) and a different source (ie your old Nintendo instead of your DVD player).
If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.
The TV input source must match how the equipment for example DVD is connected to the TV.
* Plug the RCA cables(red,yellow,white cord) to the designated ports. * Grab your Apex TV remote and attempt to cycle through the video inputs by hitting the "Input" button at the top of the remote multiple times. * If you have used a DVD player or similar external device recently, you may have neglected to switch the video input back to the one assigned to your TV programming. * Devices such as DVD players often reside on the AV 1 or AV 2 video input, and failure to switch back off of one of these will result in a dark, soundless screen when attempting to view cable or satellite television. * Cycle through the inputs until you land on your cable/satellite input once more, which should result in an immediate restoration of picture and sound. * If it does not, approach your Apex TV and look over the A/V cable connections. The A/V cable has two sets of prongs, one on either of its ends. Each prong is either red, yellow and white, and plugs into corresponding A/V ports on the back of the Apex TV and the back of your cable or satellite box. Make sure the ports and prongs are color-corresponding and have not been switched up.
your' TV is in VIDEO mode... connect your cable or sat. or DVD player or cable box etc. to TV using the VIDEO jacks>>>>red , white , and Yellow wires....picture should be on TV now.
other ways to get a picture also....changing TV from VIDEO mode TO TUNER mode...etc
your dvd player got three cable one red two white
three yellow ok here i go dvd player input plug in the yellow cable in the yellow in put @ the back of your dvd dvd player
the white cable and red cable is your sound the yellow cabe is your picture see that you have a yellow input @ the back of you tv and plug in the yellow in it then it will work
sweetkiss, if it works through the dvd player and not on cable/satellite box then the tuner is bad, if you have any type of cable/satellite box try running A/V cables out of the box to video input on the back of the tv and switch the tv to that video input, ie; vid 1, vid 2 etc. (your using one of those inputs for the dvd) this will give you your picture back, you can of course also replace the tuner in the set, good luck, BMW Rider
If your DVD player is separate from your tv, you might have a loose cable plug or connection.
Depending on the type of flicker you have, a vertical circuit loose connection would cause this. If you could connect it to a cable or antenna it might tell you where the problem is located. A faulty circuit in the DVD might cause this too.
It is not clear where you say input is from cable, do you mean the Scart input to your Sony TV?
Do not use Progressive scan(p), as this is not interlaced. The normal TV requires an interlaced(i) picture of 50 half frames per second giving 25 complete pictures per second to reduce flicker.
Some TVs and projectors and all monitors accept Progressive scan.
