Deborah, does this happen on all inputs (cable/satellite/aerial, dvd, game, media/apps, etc)?
Hi Deb, sorry I missed you earlier,
do you use only the tv speakers, or any type of external sound system?
Can you tell me HOW the panasonic is hooked up to the tv (coax, scart, red/white/yellow, etc)?
Thank you for the info, and you have nothing else connected?
Aerial, cable box, etc?
Is it connected to the panasonic, or to the tv directly?
Can you please disconnect the aerial from the player temporarily and see if the problme persists?
It isn't necessarily a long term solution, though it could be. I'm suspecting that the aerial (or rather the internal tuner) in the panasonic is introducing interference/noise that is bleeding over to dvd mode. If you don't typically record live tv on the vhs, then you can hook the aerial straight up to the tv, and use the tvs own tuner instead (may need to run the auto program / auto scan, first)
