    Hi All, I bought a 32ZP48 from Direct Digital last November and I must say it's great, picture and sound all brill BUT resently the screen has started to flash and the speakers buzz. It only lasts a split second and only happens once or twice an hour after the TV has been on a couple of hours but it's getting me worried. I've spoke to DD and they said my TV is 'out of sync' with my satilite, DVD and vidio connected to it, I should disconnect them retune the TV and reconnect. Sounds abit iffy to me!! Any ideas anybody?

    Sounds a bit like interference from a thermostat turning on/off central heating ?

    Get an engineer out asap.Possible fault in the text module.Or somebody competent to remove the module to see if it cures.The set will operate without it.

    Thanks for that. I've heard this about the text module before. What is a text module?
