About a week ago I purchased a Philips 32pw9308 from Comet. I had checked various reviews on the set and I decided it matched my needs for the price I was willing to pay. http://www.whatvideotv.com/testbench/index.html.It received a very good write up PHILIPS 32PW9308 32in widescreen Nicam TV Review September 2003. So I got the set home set it up and was immediately dissapointed with the picture - very "grainy" and "shimmery". After messing about with the various digital options and user menu settings I was unable to get the picture I felt warranted a £1000 tv. No matter what I tried there were always lines on the screen several vertical and one main horizontal line and also the picture looked dirty.. I then tried a DVD through RGB scart and wow what a great picture - or so I thought for a while! The scene in the DVD was a panoramic scene that shifted from left to right with loads of sky and thats when I noticed several "lines" on the screen - like "water marks" also the picture looked "dirty" - the "dirt" stayed in the same areas while the panoramic scene behind moved. The actual surface of the TV screen was spotlessly clean -the dirt appeared to be on the inside! I have tried every different connection I can RH/RGB Scart and Svideo - all result in the same "lines" and "dirty picture" ( although slightly less when viewing a DVD). At this stage I thought OMG I bought a duffer!!! So I decided to take out all peripheral connections and see if the lines were there. I switched over to EXT1 without a peripheral and could just about make out the lines on the blue screen so I turned brtightness and contrast right up and there they were . Also the blue screen's blue was not uniform it was brighter in some areas and darker in others?? I phoned Comet who are sending out an Engineer/Technician on Tuesday, Hopefully he will be able to sort this I was only after trying everything I could to sort the picture did I do a search on these forums and was dissapointed to read about the various problems with Pixel+ and "black Bars" etc. I am not sure whether the display problems I have are the same as others but to show you all what is wrong with my screen I turned the tv over to my cable channel but with the cable box on standby (so only a black screen) and turned up both contrast and brightness to show u the problem - my screen looks like a bit of tartan with all these lines! Any suggestions on what could be wrong?? ps sorry about the long post.
