    Hi,

    This evening I was playing some pal dvds in progressive scan mode from a pioneer 868 dvd into a pioneer 434 plasma, I noticed when the brightness is turned right up, I could see vertical black lines in the picture. This is more noticable on dark scenes. They are stationary.
    It only happens in pal progressive scan mode, if I switch to interlaced, they vanish. They are also not there in ntsc progressive scan.

    If i turn the brightness down to normal levels they are less noticable.

    Has anyone noticed similar with this player?

    Cheers,

    Graham

    Possibly No help at all but My Pioneer CLD1450 laserdisc player shows these lines on PAL discs (they travel upwards and are very hard to spot) I was told it was due to a bad power supply.

    Call me crazy, but I think the answer might be not to turn your brightness right up.

    That's what I call looking for faults.

    I see you have the same plasma and dvd, do you get the lines in progressive mode.

    I know its not a problem as you can't see them when the brightness is turned down to normal levels, but I was wondering why they are there.

    Cheers,

    Graham
