We have a Majestic brand 12V LCD TV installed in the yacht we've recently bought and it suffers from intermittent flickering. It will show images
perfectly for a few minutes and then start flickering and after 4 or 5 minutes it will return briefly to a perfect image before flickering again. Doesn't matter if you're playing a DVD
or tuning in to local TV signals.
It seems like its caused by some sort of interference
, however, we've tried switching things (like the electric
fridge, battery charger
, nav electronics
, etc) off and it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what we should be looking at to identify and isolate any interference
issues beyond the obvious stuff that we've already done (check that all plugs and connections are tight and clean, etc)?
Just a thought, we've only tried the TV while connected to shore power
sitting in the marina berth. Could we be getting electrical
interference from another boat, the shore power
system, etc? (should probably try the TV while we're out on the water
, but have generally got plenty of entertainment at that time anyway
