      Psycadelic colours on a flat screen TV

      Have just bought a flat screen TV and a few moments after switching on The screen goes a psychedelic green/pink. The Sky and DVD player are connected via scart and the TV by a standard aerial. The strange colours occur with DVD/Sky/TV/Feeview. I have disconnected one source at a time to try to see if it is one particular source but the problem still occurs.

      Has anybody seen this before or have any ideas on how to fix it, as the mrs is giving me grief over this.

      Many thanks in advance

      Koala 5 is probably right,
      but check the “faults” page in the manual.
      Phone the manufacturer’s help line tomorrow.
      If the problem is not solved ask for a replacement or
      your money back from the seller, which is your legal right.
      Act quickly and do not mess around with the set
      or they might blame you.

      Re: Psycadelic colours on a flat screen TV

      I have stopped the problem but I am not convinced that the problem id resolved.
      Traced the TV signal which was going vis the Sky+ box and then the VCR before going into the TV. This is now giving a good picture. The routing was like that when we had a 'normal' sky box. It would appear that the TV did not like the aerial signal going vis two amplifiers, which should not really cause a problem as the amplifier and the TV should have automatic gain control. I would appreciate a comment from a TV repair person on this.

      Many thanks for the suggestions given.
