I've been looking into this myself as I've also recently purchased the KDL-40W4000. I was watching a murky old film and was getting a bit of sludgy ghosting but found that by reducing the contrast to 25, setting the backlight on low, colour on neutral and the brightness about 40-60 (and taking ALL advanced noise functions off), this reduced the ghosting considerably.
BUT, this is quite a cool and dark image. If you watch standard TV and films mainly, a variation of the Cinema setting is probably the best overall setting i.e.
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard

That symptom may cause by the main board or t-con board, I suggest you do software up grade first.

I just fixed one with the same problem. The light flashed 13 times.
I had to cut one trace on the hv board to one of the lamp drivers.
There is a slight but barely noticeable darken line across the screen but the tv stays on now and the picture is good. I don't
know if the lamps can be replaced but why bother now.
