    My son now informs me that it cant be fixed and we need a new screen,how can that be?its only 14 months old

    Could you go into a little more detail?
    Eg. Does this happen only on a certain channel? What device are you using with the TV (eg. cable box, games console, PC).

    I have heard unshielded cables can cause ghosting if they're exposed to any kind of interference. first thing i would try is replacing the cable from the said device to your TV.

    Please give us some more details maybe sombody can pin it down.

He may just be giving up too soon. Again, does this happen on every channel no matter what is plugged into it?

If replacing the cables doesnt help, try giving sony tech support a call and see what they suggest. It wouldnt hurt to get a professional opinion. Plus if your warrenty has expired and they offer to repair it at a cost, im sure it will cost less than a new 40" TV

Not sure what country you're in so go to the website below and choose your country then look for their contact email or phone number. I'm sure they will be helpful, thats what theyre there for.

Have your TV model number (usually on the back of the set) and details of the fault handy. They may also ask where you purchased it from.

    It may also be possible that your TV is still under warrenty. In which case they will fix it for free.

Sony bravia 52 kdl xbr ghosting


Michael, does the ghosting go away of you tap the set? Or if you turn off the set and let it cool off and turn it back on, is the ghosting still here? One of the most common causes of ghosting or double image problem is due to a defective LCD panel tab. Sony's are known for this problem. I would recommend getting a diagnoses done on the set to be sure. If it turns out to be a LCD tab problem, the only true fix is to replace the panel.

Hey, i have a samsung ln32b360, just 2 months old. worked beautifully when i got it, but recently it started ghosting a little in very specific situations. then it started ghosting a lot, but only in dark...


Hi,

First,If there are double images or "ghost" images on the TV's picture, check the cable connections and make sure they are secure.Because the loose cable connection would be a chance for the ghost picture

But if the cable is perfect and if you still get ghost picture then here is the solution:

The LCD Panel is defective. The problem is the T-con board that is used to decode the signal from the main board to the LCD Panel. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel or T-con board if possible. The T-con will cost about 1/10 of the price as the LCD panel but except for a few new models, the T-con is not available. The LCD Panel is very expensive (usually from $600-700 for a 32" Sony).

The reason is that Sony makes the T-cons for each individual TV with different specs to match that of the LCD panel because of the low threshold for error between the LCD Panel and the T-con.

Its best to avil warranty and change the panel...

Please leave me comment, if you need furher assitance

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40W4000


Hi there,

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.

backlight: min
contrast: 79
brightness: 50
colour: 53
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
sharpness: min
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard

Ghosting


Does the monitor do this on all resolutions?

Try changing the refresh rate on the monitor's properties page and see if the effect changes at all.
