Re: Shadow problem

Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from
and do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix.

SOURCE: Shadow problem

While the TV is off, press and hold down the input button, then press the power button for 2 seconds. You should be in the service menu. Using the joystick on the remote scroll down to LCD Adjust. Move the joystick to the right 1 click you should see the word Ghost, move the joystick to the right again 1 click, you should see a black square and LCD Adjust SHP and a number ( take note of the value) Using the joystick left or right adjust the black square for minimal ghosting (grey shadows). Then press the select button on the remote to save the new number. Then press the exit button 3 times to return to a normal picture. Good luck!

How do i fix the shadow on my Samsung TV?

Well, it has a bad T-con board. You'll have to pay for the part, but you can fix it yourself. The board can be replaced easily. The T-Con board is usually near the center of the screen when you have the back removed. Just look at the ***** holes with arrows pointing to them and take out only those screws. Once the back is off, you'll see a board under a metal cover(not always) The board has flat wide ribbon cables that go to the bottom of the screen. Get the numbers off the board and go here for parts: TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy

The picture is clear but the colours are distorted like a sort of heat sensor is on the figures. Images of green and purple like shadows on the people in the picture

Are you using the component input. This is 3 wire video. If all 3 wires are not connected color will be off. This is very common. Cable may also be bad. How does the tv menu look? Press menu on tv or LG remote. Is picture bad on all inputs?You need to determine if problem is the source or the tv set by trying various video sources and inputs. If the tv is at fault but the tv menu is ok I would suspect the main board. If the the menu is also bad i would suspect the t conn board.

Image has duplicate shadow

There should be different HDMI slots on the back of that TV. Switch you HDMI cable to use another slot. Change to that HDMI slot on your TV menu. Sometimes the ports go bad, or there is something messing with the signal.

The HDMI can carry sound and video. Make sure that in your tv menu that your tv is setup under audio has the receive audio from hdmi as well.

Green outline/shadow on dark images or backgrounds

LVDS Cable is corroded - This is the cable the provides video from the TV Video Process board to the LCD Panels Timing Control Board.

Honestly, if you can take the TV back do so. If not, Service it using the manufacturer warranty

Purple and green strip/shadow around all the images and at the bottom

Either a bad optical block or possibly a bad LVDS cable, you need a qualified tech to know for sure

50V500 ONLY
GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.

  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.

  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
03b_ghost_image02.gif Figure 2
  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).
Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed

Check settings first to make sure no one changed anything out of the ordinary. Are the shadows that of a color or darkened shadow? It could be out of convergence, which can be corrected in the menu - or it could be low quality video cables to. Also, if there is no green, does a white color show up when you're in a menu mode (Red+Blue+Green = White Image)? If so, then the green picture tube is working and it's just a color adjustment, otherwise you may have to invest in a new green picture tube.
