Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here is the problem i am encountering...
Im looking to buy a new bigger HDTV but I recently just moved into a new house (built 1985) from an apt. So i know have more space for a bigger one, but i've noticed something the other day. Whenever i watch a dvd, i get a shock/surge like line shooting across my screen whenever my water cooler kicks on in my kitchen. I also noticed last night that turning off my kitchen light also triggers this same action as well.
Now, here is the weird thing. It ONLY happens when i watch a dvd. When i am watching my digital cable its fine. Its ONLY when im watching a dvd. I have a surge protector on the outlet that i am using and had the dvd player plugged directly into it as well as the rest of my equipment. I also tried running the dvd player thru my receiver as well and it still happened.. any ideas what would cause this and how do i fix it? Better surge protector, shotty wiring in the house, etc come to mind.
Like i said I want to buy a new tv, but these lines that fire across the screen are actually burning into my set sometimes.. and the last thing i want to do to is fark up a brand new lcd tv with these surges on the screen..
thanks for any suggestions and help in advance!
