    Hello folks, first tiem here so be gentle !!!

    Have a prob with my 32" 50 hz phillips widescreen tv and I was hoping you might be able to help.

    It works perfectly when watching DVDs or watchin tv with Rabbits ears but when I connect it up to Ntl (Analogue) via the Coax connection after a while it will begin to flick over and back between the particular channel and the 'Ext 1 Ntl' channel until it will eventually stay on that channel !

    Have you any suggestions or solutions for this problem ?? All I can figure is that somehow the analogue input is carrying some sort of signal that is telling the tv to change to the External Channel, much like a scary works, but what is causing this if so ?? I have has the tv for 4 years and it had worked perfectly up until recently. FYI, I have tried swapping DVD play, Scart cable, and Coax cable but the problem still persists.

    All help would be greatly appreciated,

    Thanks

    Cheers TG (and ph of course) for goin so easy on me alright !

    Oh yeah, other tvs work fine with the exact same set up !

    What I'm basically trying to do is avoind having to bring the tv in to a repair shop as this problem seems to occur randomly so I can already picture the scenario where I will bring it in, explain the problem and then it when I plug it in it will work perfectly !
    I find it hard to imagine that the repairer will then patiently wain infront of the tv for the hour/day it might take to start acting up so a week later I will get a phone call saying my tv is fixed, I will hand over 100 quid and bring it home and I'm back to square one !!

    D'ya get me ?

    HI
    If it is the model which has the A10E chassis then it could be the EPROM, the main chip within the TV. Changing channels and any strange happenings is a symtom of this. This repair costs £130+ to fix.
