The last couple of months I noticed that when the TV changes stations the right hand side keeps the images to some extent (ghost images) and leave the right hand side with an uneven grey image. Especially when watching a channel with a black background the right had side is totally grey. I have read the manual and executed the steps to remove this (Whitewash) The result was negative. All the preventative steps were taken for e.g., no Still images, Cleaning and ventilation. The repair guys said that they could not detect any problems but obviously did not test this correctly. They stated that this could be my DSTV decoder? They stated that the Plasma’s motherboard is very complex. I personally think they don’t know how to fix this problem. The TV still has 15 months of warranty left? You expert advice would be appreciated.
If it's still under warranty call 800-243-0000 (LG customer service) and get them to send a technician out from a different shop. After 3 (or maybe it's on the 4th) repair attempts if it's not fixed you can ask for a different TV.

Line, faults & possible causes to LCD screen are given with illustrations. You can get an idea about the fault to an extent.
If you are using antennae check the direction. If this is a cable input , then with a DVD , if all these show a ghost image, then the convergence of the TV section must be checked. Possible fault in the picture processing -( Y amp luminance)can lead to ghost images.
50V500 ONLY GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image. CONDITION: 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. CORRECTION:
To correct the problem, please do as follows:
Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
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.
BEFORE CONTINUING: CONFIRM THAT THE R, G and B DRIVE ARE SET AT 40.
Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.
Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once.The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
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).
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.
Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
when you leave your TV (no matter what kind) and you leave it for long periods of time on a static image or something.. the image tends to burn in to the screen... so changing the glass would be a way to fix it.... the problem is that that kind of repairmen is more expensive and difficult than buying a new set...
