Question about Mitsubishi WT-42315 42" TV

Color ghosting on left side

Mitsubishi WT-42311, purchased 11/2003. Just recently the set has started showing 3 colored ghost on the left 6" of the screen. It looks like the problem of an unshielded speaker, but no speakers have been moved or added. Is the internal speaker possibly loose and causing the ghost? It also won't turn back on when it is "hot", auto shut off when attempting to turn it back on. Thanks Braveheart

Re: color ghosting on left side

A magnetic field such as would come from a speaker might cause the ghosts but would not stop your set from coming on when it's hot. You may have a horizontal deflection problem such a bad flyback transformer or some other component that gets worse with temperature. You need to have it checked out by a technician. Stargazer

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.
