    I've now had two Samsung WS24V53NS tvs produce the same "problem".

    The effect can be lessened by reducing brightness, but it never goes away. It is particularly noticeable when watching DVDs (RGB through scart) but is present when I hook up my VCR too.

    I've drawn a little pic of what happens (pic attached) - any thoughts?

    Cheers

    The problem is called streaking, and I get the same problem on my 21" Toshiba 21S04B, and it's really annoying. I called an engineer out and he said there is no way to fix it. It shouldn't happen in the first place if QA was any good, and found the faults before the TV was sold!!

    Tugboat,
    Try reducing contrast rather than brightness. Remember brightness sets the black level and contrast the white. It looks as though you might be driving it way to hard.

    I agree, the problem could probably be ameliorated by cutting down the contrast.

    An awful lot of people have their contrast set way too high, this is frequently the way TVs come from the shops. It looks impressive and dynamic but is not 'correct'. Usually set contrast somewhere between 1/3 to 1/2, it may initially look flat and disappointing but is likely to be more 'accurate'.

    If in doubt get a copy of either Avia or Digital Video Essentials on DVD to correctly calibrate your TV.
