When i go to play a copy of shadow hearts: from the new world, the picture goes fuzzy and flickers, making it impossible to play. the disk was second hand but appears scratch free and the leads are all properly connected. The problem is only triggered with this game, however even when i take out the disk and try a different game, the picture remains just as bad, even in the ps2 browser screen. but it worked fine before i put in shadow hearts. please help
Try bending the connectores slightly up and down and check if the problem will be fixed, if that seems to solve the problem purchase anothe AV cord for your PS2 also try testing your PS2 on another tv and then let's see if it will solve the problem

Have you updated the video driver in the laptop, there have been cases where the screen gives a variety of symptoms because the driver was outdated, if that fails! as crazy as this sounds do a fresh install of your operational system. I serviced a laptop with a flickering screen, I reloaded windows and got rid of the problem.
The external monitor has proven there is no problem with the video graphics card, I'am concerned that customers have complained about faulty screens. I have changed a lot of displays without issue, there is a major circuit board mounted behind the screen that plays a roll in picture production so if something goes wrong you get all kinds of symptoms from fuzzy images to multi color lines to a blank screen. I would suggest getting your money back because of his track record, also go online to Samsung and contact customer support and the technical department to see if something was over looked. Question! is this a new or used LCD display?
Fuzzy is a funny word. I never use it to describe a picture problem. That because fuzzy can go too many different ways. There is snowy fuzzy, blurry fuzzy, grainy fuzzy, and demodulated fuzzy. If the set goes out of focus intermittently that has something to do with the focus ciruitry. If it goes grainy that is a front end problem, usually tuner related. The other types of fuzzy are generally associated with problems in video processing some where. So, which is it?
Oh, and BTW that unit has three small picture tubes in it, one red, one blue, and one green. It doesn't have a 'bulb'.
The flicker could be caused by a bad solder connection arcing or even a bad picture tube. If you notice the screen getting drawed in from the sides as well as top and bottom it may be in the power supply regulation circuits, but the focustat around the area of the high voltage transformer could also be breaking down. If it's over about 8 years old, I would replace it with a HDTV set. Check out the latest issue of Consumer reports for ideas. (No I don't work for them-I've just seen so many people just walk into a *Mart and pick out a TV like they were choosing a box of cerial without doing a bit of research to find one that would suit them best, that I'm trying to put out a word to the wise among us).
