Re: Changed lamp, picture ghost

Because its a LCD set. You may need the service manual to adjust the picture focus properly. You can get the service manual for your set at the following link for 10.99, and they will email it to you if you return to the site and request that they email it instead of mail it to you. Hope this helps. Here is the link.

Colors on the screen are messed up with ghost HITACHI

Its not clear what kind of tv you have but it appears to be older rear projection tv with three picture tube. This problem does occur due to the convergence board going bad. Needs professional help to repair unless you know a lot about soldering ICs. Check out at for more answers on this problem, repairs and costs.
