Lg Tv Flicker

I recently bought an LG HD Tv that I also use as my computer monitor. All's fine except when I playback a VHS videotape the monitor skakes a bit.I never have this problem with my old regular hitachi TV. Not the VCR causing the problem.

Yup.

You see all sorts of playback anomalies on HD TV with non HD content. The industry does a poor job explaining this.

I take it that you did use another VCR since you claim it's not the problem.

Yes I did use 2 other VCRS and still the same problem. It is like the screen skakes now and again while the previously taped show is playing back. I never had this problem with my old Hitachi regular tv.

A regular TV used NTSC or PAL

And there were reasons it would always work with even a shaky signal. Do you remember how to adjust "TRACKING" on your VCRs?

Did you try that?

yes I tried that already but no difference. I stated earlier that it has nothing to do with the VCRs.

Ok but how to play tapes without a VCR?

I fear you'll have to return the unit if they can't correct this. It's a known problem as the move to HD is done. While video signal stabilizers are known to help in some cases I get the feeling you will not accept that such may be required.

Back to LG it seems.
