    Just received a 9200T -refurb from humaxdirect. All is great apart from one annoying thing. The picture seems to flash every now and again, its quite infrequent but annoying. It seems to happen on all channels.

    From menu:
    Signal = 85% solid no movement
    Quality = 100% solid no movement

    Has anyone else had a similar problem?

    Try changing your scart lead.

    Does it flash in the same place on a recorded programme? Could be the hard drive which is faulty. I suppose it could also be electrical interference from nearby equipment.

    Send an email to Humax support explaining details. They probably have a better idea than anyone else.

    If its a refurbished model from them and its faulty they will arrange supply of
    another machine and collect the faulty one at same time.

    You could also check the Humax Forum for information.

    ROYOLD: Cheers for the Hummy forum steer. Managed to find out it was a scart problem. Well actually a Hummy to Philips scart issue, in that the Hummy gives out slightly too much composite signal and some Philips TV's dont like it and cause a flicker.

    The fix is either use Scart 2 (Ext2) socket on tv (not rgb enabled) or add a 300 Ohm resistor to pin 20 of the scart plug at tv end.
    So at moment I am using Ext2 and so far so good. I will do the resistor fix next time I go to Maplins. So I can then use rgb for a slightly better picture.

    So ROYOLD thanks very much.
