Hi all

My Panasonic CRT TV has a case of the hiccups. Sometimes it misses a word and it is driving me crazy. I have changed all the scart leads with fancy ones, but it makes no difference.

To give you all an idea of the setup, I have the folloing plugged in:

DVD player
Digi sender
VHS Player
Nintendo Wii
SKY

Hope someone out thee can help. I am looking to et an LCD or Plasma next year, but don't have the funds at the mo.

Thanks

Foxy

I tried that, and I also tried jumping out at it in the dark screaming, but to no avail!

Are you sure it's not the Sky box glitching?

Or are you watching hiccups?

Hiccups is an upcoming Canadian television series, whose rights have just been sold to CTV and The Comedy Network. A television show created by Corner Gas's star Brent Butt. The series is set to begin production in late October 2008.

I don't. Just checked one thing though. The sound in the TV in the kitchen (that the Digi sender sends the signal to) is working fine with no hiccups at all.

Mmmmm..........strange. I know nothing about TV's but it doesn't sound good. :-(

Have you checked the sky box? There is a problem with the amstrad sky+ boxes in particular which can cause this - I had to get my box changed for a thomson to stop the problem

Hmmm......This sounds likes like one of those annoying problems that drive you crazy but don't worry....I think it's safe to say that we've all gone through this at some stage in our lives....but the the cure is definitely argumentitive...for example, I believe that the best soluition is holding it's breath and throwing water all over it hehe....it needs to guzzle as much water as possible. :giggle:

Jokes aside, it sounds like there may be an issue with your sky box but it'll cost £65 for Sky to come and check it out, check all the connections and you might want to type your issue on google to find the solution, as we've has some issues with Sky boxes in the past too.

That's the diference between Sky and Virgin though, Virgin will repair any issues for free of charge, even if it's not there fault, whereas Sky will charge you £65 just for a callout.I was horrified when my ex told me she called Sky out 3 times in a month and the tv still didn't work, and they actually had the cheek to charge her £65 X3 +her £45 monthly fee, even though she didn't get to watch tv for more than a few hours between issues.

They said it's apparantly the weather, and they can't control that, so she left Sky and moved to Virgin and she's never had an issue in over 3 years.

EDIT: BTW, Sky charged her the full £240 for the month and they only offered to refund her after she signed a 12 month contract with Virgin, it's a shame they refused to refund her when she called the cancellations department and then they had someone call her every week to try and convince her to come back to Sky....very irritating experience and wouldn't recommend Sky for that reason alone.

I just turned the SKY box off and put a dvd on. It is still doing it!

Hmmm....sounds like it is the TV then,maybe consider buying a cheap secondhand tv until you get your plasma next year, as this would probably be cheaper than repairs. :thumbsup:

I'm definitely not an expert but it could be a loose wire on one of the connectors or something...that's what I'd expect anyway. :)

TVs can do this with mobiles within range. If your mobile regularly loses and gains network it can be really bad...

Hope that may help.
