    When I've watching a DVD I can see a faint outline of something else in the picture (more noticeable in RGB mode). Last night I paused the DVD and I could make out faint writing. It was obvious from being able to pic out a few words that it was a commercial. Then I started to experiment. Firstly I turned the DVD player off. The tv then reverted to the previous channel it was on. Lo and behold, it was an advert break on Channel 4. The only way I could find to get rid of the problem to some degree was to tune a preset into static, then turn the DVD player on. But this also created a new problem. It seemed that the static was leaking over too which gave the DVD picture a faint grainy look to it.

    Has anyone come across this before? Is it due to something that I can fix by moving equipment around or is this an internal problem with the tv?

    The tv is a 5 yr old JVC AV-24WT2EK

    It may well be that the Scart connecting the TV to the DVD player has seen better days. Replace it with a new one of good quality.

    Already have done. The old one had a dodgy connection on the blue pin. Changed it which cured that problem but not this one.
