Any ideas? If this is indeed normal, could some other users perhaps just confirm they have the same issue? TIA.
Hi folks- I have a LA32A550D TV with attached HT-Z310 home theatre (via HDMI).
Whenever I turn it on to play a DVD, the screen flickers within the first few minutes of the movie. It starts as minor, gets worse, then usually goes totally blank for several seconds. The process lasts around 30-40 seconds, and is always within the first 5 minutes. Once it stops, it's fine for the rest of the disk- and any subsequent disks. (Until the unit is powered off & back on again.)
I have manually set the HT unit to upscale to 1080p.
The Samsung support line says it's just normal behaviour as some sort of handshake, but it's very annoying, and would like a 2nd opinion! (It also never happened with a Samsung DVD HDD recorder I previously had setup the same way.)
I am hesitant to update the firmware. I did this for the DVD HDD recorder I had previously, and killed it- after 6 weeks at the service agent & still no sign of it, the retailer agreed to give the the home theatre unit instead!
If that's just the way it is, I can live with it (I think I can just pause the movie till the flickering finishes), but otherwise any suggestions greatly appreciated.
My apologies if this has been covered before; Googling hasn't really come up with anything solid.
