    I have recently brought a brand new Sony 32 inch Widescreen television (the FQ-75). I spent more money than I could afford (home theater freak that I am) becuase it offered a 100hz picture that was very stable.
    However, I've noticed waves continually passing across the screen from left to right. This occurs all the time. Even when I remove my DVD player. This is very frustrating and I'm starting to get worried. Can anyone give me any possible reasons why this might happen?
    I had a Sony engineer in who told me it was being caused by an unstable power supply (I live in a block of flats). However, other experts told me that the TV would be good enough to prevent such interference. They suggested interference from Radio waves
    Please help

    Do you have any speakers close to the TV? This includes a center channel on top, or a sub. If you do, try moving them further away (disconnecting a speaker probably won't make a difference, so don't try that come to the conclusion that it's not the speakers).
    If that doesn't work, what else have you tried by way of troubleshooting? Have you tried moving any other electronic equipment that's close to the TV? Have you tried the TV on a different power outlet? In a different room?
