    My amp (Yam RX-V795aRDS) is on a shelf directly under my Philips WS TV. It is separated from the TV by about 3 inches and a glass top the TV sits on.

    Recently I have noticed the amp interferes with the TV picture. It is hardly noticeable when watching TV or R2/4 DVDs. However when I play R1 DVDs there is a noticeable flicker in the bottom left hand corner of the screen which disappears when I turn the amp off. If I turn the amp on/off I sometimes get a discoloration on the screen at the bottom left. This I can get rid of by again turning the amp on/off a few times. Seems almost like a degauss!

    I don’t know if the fault is with the TV or the amp.

    Apart from moving the amp – which would be very difficult with my current set up - is there anything I can put between the TV and the amp that would filter out the interference?

    Any help/advice would be appreciated!

    Nothing is faulty, it will be the magnetic field produced by the amplifiers mains transformer. A sheet of 2 or 3 mm steel will help or mu-metal which is very expensive. I you can find more room then move the amplifier further away. It will help

    You should do something otherwise you could permanently effect you picture.

    Hope that helps
