it appears i have a problem with my new st50 55" and 24P.
when i set my pansonic blu-ray player to output 24P I get flashes and color flashes. happens between 5 and 30 times per movie, bluray only, audio is unaffected. flashes last maybe a second. raiders of the lost ark had a lot. the dark knight rises had only a few. I tried a different cable, no help. I tried running direct to the tv instead through my avr, no help. when I turn off 24P all is well.
do I even need 24P?
Is it worth the trouble of exchanging the tv?
thanks for the input.
I would exchange it for another.
I borrowed a friends blu-ray player, same thing, must be the TV.
I would exchange the TV. Who knows, the problem could get worse and start showing up on 60hz mode in the future.
I'll likely return it just on principal, its brand new it should work right. plus, if thats broken maybe something else is too and I don't know it yet.
I know you said you tried a different cable but was it the same brand, make, specification as your current cable? I would make sure you are using a good "high speed" HDMI cable. When I say "good" I don't necessarily mean expensive. Monoprice cables are reasonably priced and I have used many of their high speed HDMI cables with good success. The interference in the image you show looks like a symptom of a bad or incapable cable. I'm just guessing here and it's a cheap fix if that's the case.
I thought of that too. I ordered a new cable from monoprice. Didn't help any.
