Ghosting of the colour guns

Ghosting of the color guns, the last time this happened the parts were $1300, sadly the warranty has expired and quite frankly, I could buy a new TV for it worth repairing or is there a way to fix it?

Replace the convergence amp IC's and call a good TV Tech this time. The last tech over charged you about $1000.

Top half of the screen is normal colour and the bottom half yellow greenish

Depending on the brand, it's likely that the color guns are out of alignment, or some of them are faulty. If bumping the TV has any affect on the picture, this is your problem. If the TV is a newer TV, this should be covered under warranty. If it is past warranty, the parts are available from the manufacturer. It's not "easy" to replace these parts, but it is doable. Good luck to you!

Recalibration is what is needed, you're going to need to recalibrate the 'GUNS's if you do not know how to do it yourself I would recommend you calling a support tech.

Ghosting on LCD

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.

A Very light Grey shade/Ghost like residue on glossy paper but not reg paper

I have looked and this problem confused me to no end.
I started searching through engineering notes from Xerox and found this line which I am copying and pasting.
This is not my opinion I can send you the entire report if you wish.
But sadly here is the answer.

Although supported, glossy paper will exhibit background toner and is a limitation of the printer technology.
