Re: ghosting and popping noises

Slag, Has the cable signal been branched off to another TV (or more) from the same feed? Ghosting and shadows are usually the result of bad impedance matches on those lines. Try connecting the prime TV directly to the cable box (or cable jack) output and note if there is any improvement. Make sure the cable itself is of the RG-6 type (not RG-59) and has no sharp bends or kinks. The center pin of the cable should be clean without corrosion. The RF IN jack on the TV should be checked to make sure the threads for the connector are clean and the plug should be attached firmly but not too tight. These steps should help solve this at least assuming the cable signal is good. [Checking it shows the "level" coming off the pole, not necessarily the quality of that level.] Hope this helps.

Picture Problem -- TV Does not Turn On

I don't think the picture tube (CRT) failed.
If you have no sign of life at all such as a lit LED or similar, the unit either has a blown fuse (could be inside) or the power supply has failed or at least is starting up as it should.
But before getting carried away, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet to be certain that the set is getting AC.

Then, check your user guide to see if they specify or list any fuse in the specification section.
If you find mention of it and replace it only to see it fail again, then there was a reason for the failure of the first fuse too, meaning it will need service.

Tosh widescreen ghosting vertical lines

there is no convergence adjust in a 32" tv. Convergence is done when there is more than 1 picture tube, ie; 50" projection sets have 3 tubes so convergence can go out. post the model number of your set and we can help more, BMW Rider

Picture shifted and ghost image

Try using an input other than the tuner. I.e a DVD player or game system on the front inputs. If the picture looks OK on the other input, your tuner is damaged and will need replaced, if it looks bad also, try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes and then go through the setup process in the menus. If this fails seek a repair shop.

Double picture

Can you give more details? What do you mean by Double picture? Do you have 2 pictures side by side or One on top of another? Or is it like a shadow behind the main Image? If it is a shadow (Ghosting), check your Antenna - connection, direction, etc.
