    Anybody have an idea about why my digital DVD player scrolls the image like the old fashoined horizontal hold on my grand dad's tv? Is there anything I as a layperson can do about it? Thanks!

    just confirm ... the pic is moving sideways ? loss of horizontal hold usually causes the pic to skew sideways

    what sort of TV / monitor is the DVD player being connected to?
    is it an old TV/monitor ? maybe can't handle the signal from the player ?
    Have you tried the player into another TV/monitor does the problem still exist ?

    cheers

    Hi Dave, thanks for your reply! The pic is moving down, as in scrolling...and the tv is not the problem, since other units play on it just fine. I did move it to another tv, and the problem persists. BTW, this is a CDG+ karaoke player. The sound works fine, ad the image is sharp, but scrolls. Thanks! :)

    ok so its scrolling vertically NOT horizontally :)
    when you say other units.... do you mean identical make and model units ?

    you may be able to adj the TV's vertical hold a bit to bring the pic into lock

    otherwise if its a signif. fault with the DVD player, it may be a " file 13 " (junk box)
    and buy a new one. There's prob nothing you could do with the player itself that would overcome a poor/faulty signal out of it.

    cheers
    Dave
