Green shadowing on Samsung LN-S3251D

My Samsung has a great picture but I get green "ghosting" similar to doppler weather radar on solid colors on the screen. It is not in just one spot on the screen, it moves around continually. I've tried changing cables, but nothing works.

Sounds like you need a service call if it's in warranty, if not in warranty, you may need to have the logic main board replaced

Ghosting problems with a Samsung-LN32B360

I think your cable box is old version together with weak signal caused this problem. I guess you are using coaxial cable hooked up to the TV at TV cable input jack.
At the TV there are some better quality inputs which are real digital transmission (audio and video) HDMI and components (digital video and analog audio).
The most simple and best quality is HDMI provided the box has HDMI output.
Secondly is component inputs. There are 5 cable trends in which 3 of them (red, blue, green) for video and the rest 2 are for audio (red , white). The cable box should have same color accordingly as ouput. Please note that the color must be matched otherwise you will see the screen has one color only.
Playing a DVD player to see picture good or not. If picture is good, TV has no problem at all.

Green noise on all black images on my SAMSUNG LN LCD TV screen

I had a similar problem with my LG plasma. I used the Image Sticking Minimization
(Pixel Orbitor, White Wash, and Inversion) feature which is designed to prevent image burn in and ghosting. This ISM feature may be available on the Samsung or any other brand under a different name. I activated the "white wash" option for about 30 mins, the screen turns white and somehow the pixels get reset. The green noise disappeared after that.

I hope this helps. Phezbuster

If the whole screen has this tint problem, there is nothing you can do. It must be repaired. You will need to take it in for service.

LCD picture distortion.

This is caused by a failure of the main board. The failure causes the refresh rate of the unit to be off creating a trailing or ghost effect. This will require a technician to replace that board though. Hope this help.
