Weird black screen flash problem with Samsung WS32Z308P


Well-known Member
My folks have a weird problem with their Samsung CRT TV. They often have problem with any piece of electrical equipment. I think they may be cursed, but thats a seperate thread altogther.

Back to the probelm in hand. It only happens when watching two Sky channels (so far as we know), namely BBC News 24 (503) & Discovery (520).

When watching programs on these channels you get an intermittant black flashing that disrupts the picture. It as if a black section of video had been inserted into the video stream.

The sky box is an Pace model connected to the TV via a bog standard Scart cable to EXT1.

Is this a screen refresh rate problem? Is it to do with the video stream being received. Is it the work of satan? (I favour the latter). Any advise would be greatly appreciated as the probelm is driving my aged Mother neurotic, thus subsequently getting on my tits as well.
