    I bought a Philips 727 about 3 weeks ago after reading some good things about it here and elsewhere. For the most part, I like it a lot. However, there's a flicker or "pulsing" effect on the image for the first several minutes every time I turn it on. This happens even while the player is displaying its "Loading" screen, and isn't actually playing a DVD. Typically, the flicker/pulse goes away after a few minutes, but on the most recent disc I watched, it lasted for almost half an hour. It does this on DVDs from all different regions, and when not even playing a movie, as stated earlier.

    The flicker/pulsing almost seems to make the whole image smaller by a minute amount before then returning to normal for a few seconds, before "pulsing" again. That's the best way I can think of to describe it.

    Has anyone else experienced this, and is there a fix for it? Thanks!

    Jason

    are you running the dvd player into your vcr before your tv or anything?

    That sounds like macrovision to me.

    Nope. The DVD player is connected directly to the TV.
