It is EMI ... electromagnetic interference...

Do you carry your cellphone when this happens? Maybe your iPod?... could also be static charge on your clothes (not likely, but possible)... like wearing sox on a carpet...

Please comment for further help...

Don't think so, loose cable connector sometimes will give you some "jumping" in the picture, a loose tuner connection will also do something similar, and depending on how you connected the dvd player(using ch3-4 or ext a/v jacks)you could also have something of a flashlike lines or jumping in the tv picture.

Toshoba tv dvd combo picture on my tv will not work but picture on the dvd works great


I assume you mean you have a Toshiba TV with a slot for DVD play also. You don't say whether your TV is connected to a dish, cable box or antenna. Regardless of which it is, the fact that the TV produces a good picture on DVD but not on regular TV means one of two things: Either you have the TV hooked up incorrectly OR you do not know that you must change the SOURCE from DVD to TV to get a picture. That is done on the remote with the source button. Typically, the remote will have DVD, TV and AUX (one or more) as you cycle through them by simply pushing the source button again and again, If that doesn't work, you've got the TV hooked up incorrectly and/or it just happens to be set at DVD for the source. Normal hookup would involve HDMI out from the cable box, dish or whatever to HDMI in to the TV. Play with the remote "source" button. You'll figure it out. . .

Does it happen on other inputs? If so, reset the tv, sat or cable box, unplug power and try again. Play a dvd. Does it happen on a dvd? If not, there is an issue with your cable source. If it shows on dvd too, contact your tv manufacturer. You need a repair.

When I am watching a DVD, the picture messes up and is replaced by scrambled colors (noise) and then the picture returns. It does this periodically while I am playing a DVD. It can happen while the DVD...


This is most likely happening because your tv is upconverting the dvd signal to be compatible with your hdtv. If your dvd player has no upconverting feature of its own then it is more likely to happen. It's just your tv trying to compensate for the low quality signal coming from your dvd player resulting in intermittent scrambling or "noise". You should try to invest in a blu ray player when possible.

Sony bravia dims randomly


There should be a setting in the menu of the TV to turn off the auto dim feature (used for adjusting the brightness of the picture depending on ambient room lighting) I don't have a Sony LCD here with me to walk you through the menu settings, but I am certain it is there somewhere. (Chased this issue for the wife who had the same displeasure you're having)

I was watching my tv (sanyo) with cable hooked to it. The cable all of a sudden went out. I tried hooking up the dvd player and the tv is no longer recognizing the cable box or dvd player. I don't know...


sound like a tuner problem. there is a resistor that goes to the tuner that could of went bad 39,000 ohms i think which should have a orange white orang strips around it and a gold. anyway there is a problem with tuner. Sanyo was good about haveing a problem with tuners in there smaller sets. If you do not know anything about how to repair you probly shoud take to a shop but the total cost might be high and not worth it in the long run. think before you jump still water runs deep.

Picture turns into looking like a reverse negative


Often you will get a bluish or reddish looking picture if your wires from your cable box/satellite or DVD player are inexpensive RCA type video cables. Try using a nice set of component cables or HDMI cable from your sources to your TV. If this is your setup, try this first...its the most inexpensive first option.
