Recently bought this player and mostly happy with it except I’ve started to notice a couple of picture issues with it. The first is that the status bar at the top where it says recording in the top right is really blurry at times. Also, and the most annoying is when the machine is on I am getting “ghost images” on the screen.
It’s a little hard to describe. I was watching a DVD and I noticed, particularly when the screen is black, that I could see a TV signal in the background kind of like a shadow that just scrolled across the screen. When I changed my cable decoder channel the picture changed and showed the new channel.
I’ve got it setup with my cable box (NTL) feeding into the recorder on SCART and then out on SCART to the TV. I’ve tried another SCART cable but get the same results, and flashed to the latest 5026 firmware. Is this a known problem with this model or should I look at taking it back to the retailer for a replacement?
