    Thanks 'Goose'
    I'm a few thousand clicks away from the TV.
    Have asked the Mrs to connect the Wii and see if it works.
    Will it be worth fixing the main board or cheaper to buy a new one?
    Set is only about 3 years old.

    Sorry mate just had a closer look, you're not 'Goose' you're "Maverick"
    Helmets were almost identical and it is still one of the best movies ever made in my opinion.

Suspect main board that processes all signal in and to the screen.

If not tried do see if same problem when rear inputs for audio/video are used.

Testimonial: "Appreciate your assistance and advice. Im sure Mrs E would love to use it as an excuse for a bigger TV (it will hide the power point that just happens to be visible behind the existing one...lol ;-))"

    3-5 years is average life on these sets (all brands)---I would use as an excuse to get a bigger screen unit.

    Been using that Avatar here for several years and it does get attention--idea was I am not a pilot but am a top gun at TV sets.

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

You did not say if the first one went back for the same fault. If it went back for a different fault then this set is faulty! If not then unless it it more susceptible to RF interference possibly mains borne than the flawless set (that is possible) and you have some other equipment in the house which is radiating like a power supply or dimmer or whatever, it must be faulty. Turn everything in the house off just to be sure nothing is causing interference. Even then it could be picking up interference from elsewhere. What affects it or does it seem random (position time of day etc.)? The only way to be truly sure is to try it in another location
If it's new why not return it?

Hi, my stylus photo rx520 scanner is not working correctly. printout looks like a tartan pattern. the scan operates but with this odd result. many thanks. Brian.


Check nozzle. Do head cleaning procedure from epson status monitor. wait for 15 minutes. Check nozzle again. Compare results from first and second nozzle check. Print out will perfect if the result of nozzle check as good as display pattern in nozzle check dialog box.
