Symphonic 32'' lcd tv has shadow on right side of screen

The "shadow" indicates a failure either of the LCD controller, LCD connector, or in the worst case, the LCD itself. A loose connection between the LCD and the LCD controller can result in abnormal displays. Try tapping the back of the TV and check if the shadow can be affected. If it is affected, try cleaning the connector terminals with a soft-bristle brush and alcohol or lacquer thinner. If not, have it checked by a qualified technician to carry out the proper tests to determine which of the LCD controller or LCD the problem lies.

Shadows on screen

Try moving a medium powered magnet (not one for picking up heavy objects and not a refrigerator holding one) over the distorted area. If that doesn't work, try a more powerful one. This worked for my Toshiba LCD. Good luck!

50V500 ONLY
GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.

  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.

  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.

  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).
Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed

Blurry and shaking pictures on LCD

refresh rate, likely
try to adjust to a compatible rate. the monitor manual will give you its compatible rates. the video card should have that rate available. if not, you may damage the monitor with the wrong rate.
stop and try another monitor that has a refresh rate available on your video card.
good luck
