Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The problem with my tv is that there is a red and green ghost at the bottom of the tv.
If your information is correct on the type of set you have meaning Plasma, you might have a defective display panel, in that case check your warranty on the plasma display (pdl). The other side of the coin could be a x bottom left or right panels. If I were working on it I would scope the y and z sustain panels for proper waveforms. I wish there was an easy answer for you but there isn't.

The ghost might be fix by replacing the stk chips. I posted the instruction in here http://www.fixya.com/support/t209258-panasonic_pt_47wx53_g
For Kevinsul, I believe this same chips over heat which degrade it's performance. When U said things, if you mean like spots then I don't believe it is this chip. But if you mean long strips ghost or lines then it's likely this chip problem.

SOURCE: Ghosting in Red, Green and blue
The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
