Re: hdmi

Bring up the "service" menu, put the TV in standby mode, then press in sequence :

Onscreen Display ( the little screen with the i+ in it )
5 ( channel number 5 )
Volume Up ( upper end of volume button )
Analogue ( middle top button )

The TV should switch on and when it's warmed up, you should see a screen with lots of big green lettering on it.

Press the "menu" button ( middle bottom )

Use the direction dial to move down to "LCD Drivers" and press right on the dial to enter this menu.

Move down to "S H Pos Reg R". It should be "10", change it to "11". ( Left/Right to adjust )
Move down to "S H Pos Reg G". It should be "10", change it to "11".
Move down to "S H Pos Reg B". It should be "10", change it to "11".

Press the menu bottom to drop out of the menus, and the standby button to drop to standby. Switch back on, and hopefully your ghosting will be gone.

Re: hdmi

The symptom you describe for the HDMI connection is usually one where the timing of the transmitter (PS3) and Receiver (Bravia) is "off". This can happen when the two chips negotiate with each other to initially set up communications.

There is only one relatively easy fix ... if it works, then you are lucky. Swapping the cable that interconnects for a shorter or higher quality cable sometimes fixes this problem.

It is possible, depending on vintage of both the TV and the PS3, that they will never talk directly together. The PS3 must be new but if the TV has an older HDMI solution, it may be difficult to solve. (it is possible, if everything in your chain is new and high quality, that you have a defective HDMI chip in one or the other).

If the cable doesn't work, a high quality (and probably expensive) HDMI repeater box might be happy listening to your PS3 and retransmitting to your TV. These kind of boxes are often sold at home theater supply dealers... sometimes as "amplifiers" and sometimes as "splitters". You might find one of these with two inputs and one output as "Switchers" and of course much more complicated solutions.

Unfortunately, HDMI is a "standard" that is changing. there have been three revisions so far and some early chips really don;t like to talk to some later chips.

good luck. dc

Screen goes dull at times

The dulling picture really sounds like a lamp failing. You would need the sony lamp xl-2100u
The ghost image may be easier to fix, sometimes as lcds age you will get a slight shift in a color. deep in the sony menu there is a parameter (menu-setup-imageshift) that will give you 3 levels of correction, this may solve this issue.
