Sony KDF-55WF655 picture problems.

by Skrag / February 24, 2005 1:03 AM PST

If anyone has a solution to this let me know. I am using Component cables and a Progressive scan Sony DVD player. I've tried watching reference quality movies (Finding Nemo, Star Wars and Lord of the Rings) and anytime there is quick movement from one side of the screen to the other, the picture breaks up, showing vertical lines that 'split' the image across the screen, similar to 'artifacting'. I have talked to Sears and Circuit City employees to see if there is a solution to this and I discovered that their in-store models (while playing DVD's) do the EXACT SAME THING. What's up with that?!

LCD Trailing picture

I wouldn't buy a LCD for this reason. Most people don't notice the problem you are seeing, but you and i do. This is the reason why.
Response time is measured in milliseconds (ms), with the best LCD monitors now clocking in with response times under 20ms. Slower response times (>20ms) can cause the image on the panel to lag and appear jerky, an effect known as "streaking" or "trailing." Another phenomenon associated with slower response times is "ghosting." This occurs when the display is made to switch quickly from light to dark states (or vice-versa). In these instances, on-screen images may appear to stay on the screen belatedly.

The size and the quality of LCD panels determines how much or how little on-screen movement results in trailing effects. Better quality LCD displays have benefited much from improved response times. Still, no LCD display is entirely immune from trailing effects, though response times are expected to reach the under- 5ms mark soon.
