    All,

    Just been looking at TV's and have seen the scrolling bar problem on both sets. When looking at a Terrestrial Digital Picture with a white background (TeleText Menu) you can see the scrolling bars very vividly.

    Was going to replace my 28" widescreen with a 32DX100 but now am looking at Tosh and Loewe TV's.

    Very unimpressed by SONY

    Did have a look at a Aconda and 36ZP18P but not using RGB source. Any problems with the Aconda appart from the slight geometry problem when watcing 4:3?

    Si

    I've just started to experience this on my KD-32DX100. My warranty expired last Nov! Is there a solution out there? My local Sony agent claims this problem doesn't exist!

    Hi,

    The Aconda is a great tv, but it does have it's issues.

    When watching NTSC sources, it has a slight moire effect at the sides of the screen. This may or may not be an important issue, depending on how many region 1 dvd's you watch.

    I've put a link here where the issue is discussed in full.

    It's been a long time since this problem was discussed on this forum, so I don't know if the moire issue still applies to Loewe sets, or if the problem has since been corrected on their newer tv's.

    Cheers.

    Hi

    Don't they always say that if they don't know the fault. To be fair, the guy may have no idea how to fix it if it is an inherent defect like the old FQ model.

    Phone SOny UK Customer service. If you look thru my old very looooong thread, you will find some info on it.

    Legally, expiration of warranty should not take away the dealer's responsibilty of repair it if the fault is inherent and a tv should last for a reasonable time.

    Let me know how you get along with Sony UK. They were no exactly the most helpful lot if you don't you background work and don't push hard.

    Cheers

    Iank did you find a solution/fix to the scrolling bar problem on the dx100. I have the same problem with a nx100 but only when watching sky and the screen is dark or a blue colour.

    A 'THOR' scart lead solved the issue for me with my 32DX100. I'd never had an issue with SB's until I changed my dvd player (Sony) to a dvd recorder (Sony). I had been using a 'mid' level quality scart lead and the 'THOR' cable was the only one out of several premium cables I'd tried that got rid of them.

    The only snag is the plug on the end of this cable is so heavy, it has a tendency to want to fall out of the back of the telly.
