    Hello all
    Panasonic: TH-42PW6BX
    I am sure someone out there have seen something like this on a Panasonic or other Plasma out there.

    This is what i have done and seen.

    I have tried Watching from DVD and it is Brilliant picture Quality
    Sky+ Screen Flickers it is noticed at the top part of the screen but the lot flickers.
    VCR brilliant no problem at all

    I have tried everything and bypassed my amp still same problem, so I went and borrowed a Bug standard Sky Box, well the picture Quality doesnt have a problem and the flicker disapeared.

    To be honest i dont know what to say you buy the latest technology as in Sky+ Thinking you will have a better quality Viewing but find out it is BAD..

    Anyone know what I can do about it ?

    Thank you

    Sarky

    Ive got SKy+ into my pe30 panasonic and its fine.

    Have you tried this particular sky+ box on another TV it might be knackered and time to call out sky for a replacement.

    Or maybe try swapping between the VCR Out Scart on the back of the sky+ box with the normal Scart Out on the back - see if that has any difference (not because it should - just to eliminate some bits ).

    To be honest i have tried everything else short trying that on a different TV well might just try it tomorrow on a normal 21" and see if it does the same thing as i got on the plasma.

    But i can tell ya one thing that is the 2nd box i have had and same problem, The company who fitted it saw the problem and sent mine back to them and swaped it but it didnt make a difference.

    Will post something later on, after i have tried my box on a different TV.

    If they offer to replace this box then ask for a different PACE model or an Amstrad variant, it could easily be a single production batch which are faulty but most are being used on smaller CRT's and perhaps the problem isn'r evident.

    How are you connecting the SKY+ box to your screen?

    Have you tried altering the "contrast" setting (in picture settings)on the SKY+ box?(if only to see if the problem gets worse or better etc)

    Try switching "scart control" on/off (in picture settings), and see if there is a difference.

    Assuming you are connected via scart RGB, maybe try re-seating the scart board in the panel etc?

    I have tried every thing you could try from cables to settings nothing did a difference and put in mind these are the same cables i used for the standard SkyBox.
