LCD TV cuts out, lines appear....could be due to wii console or sky box???

Found 4th May 2009
Hi, I just wanted some advice about using games consoles and a sky box on an LCD tv. As we have a new 37" LCD with 2 scart sockets at the back, we have the sky plugged in one and the dvd in the other, and the red, yellow and white cables are plugged into the coloured ports on the side of the tv for the wii console.

But sumtimes the tv cuts out, and comes back on itself or lines appear, and we think the wii console may be cutting off the sky box, so took off the wii connect 24 option on the console.

The tv is a philips model and is an ex-display model bought from richer sounds, but we were advice it had been tested and worked fine, before we bought it.


Have you another TV you can check either the Sky box or the Wii on?

Since you're not using anything but compsite/RGB, the chances of it being something else causing the problem is incredibly slim. I'd contact Richer Sounds and report it as a faulty TV.

I would say its the tv at fault , the dvd or Wii shouldnt cause tv to turn off

they both worked fine on out old tv, so yeah i think thats probably the only option then, if i dont hear no other suggestions. It came with a 1yrs warrantly anyway. Thanks for the advice tho rep given =]
