The suggestions listed would be relevant for 'Ghosting' by itself, however you mentioned you tried to use the crosshairs to line up the imagesColor Issues with red ghosts on screen - 4.gif, which implies convergence - red/green/blue image separation and/or distortion. NONE of the solutions mentioned were anywhere close to the fix for this problem - this us usually cut and dry; convergence circuit failure. Generally, STK ICs are used. (Common parts are STK392-010/020/040, STK392-110/120/150/180, etc.) Most times replacing BOTH of these chips will be enough, sometimes there will be a blown fusible resistor and/or burnt resistors near the chips themselves. If you don't implicitly know exactly what I'm talking about, don't attempt it - take it in to a repair shop. For in-shop repair, this would NOT exceed $250 (EVER) at our location, unless there was more damage done, which is a one in a hundred situation. Good luck!

WD 73835 has ghosting images during dark or red scenes

Make sure your contrast isn't set too high. Most ghosting is caused by either contrast, brightness or tint issues. Try adjusting these settings. Also check if there is a Dynamic contrast setting for your TV as well as this can cause ghosting also.

Composite output has ghosting around the video (sort of an auro around all images on screen, including text and video). dvd menu also has this problem, so i verified that it is the output of the recorder...

Try reducing your sharpness value on either your TV or the player if applicable. Also disable any edge enhancement or "DVE" modes on the TV if applicable.

The easiest way to adjust sharpness control by the naked eye is with a calibration disc. Alternatively however, just for sharpness if you have a screen full of text and/or lines do the following;

Reduce your color/saturation value all the way down...this will make the picture black and white.

Then reduce your sharpness control until the "ghosting" effect or any additional white lines on text edges and line edges disappear.
Then you can return your color/saturation value back to normal.

Hope this helps!

The picture on my Vizio 42" flat screen suddenly shifted to a whitish pale color with ghostly looking images that look like negative film.

This is the fix for the Main board repair :
Locate IC 32 small 8 pin surface mount near top of Main Board and remove. Short pin 2 to pin 5. (pin 5 through 8 are together and pin 2 and 4 are together)
You will need a good TV Tech to do this for you.

Westinghouse LCM-22W2 has "ghosting"

Usually, LCD monitor ghosting appears when the cable isn't tight, the cable is faulty, or low quality. The cable should be less than 8-10 feet long. Try using a different monitor cable (they're mostly interchangable) and see if the problem goes away. I'd put my money on the cable or a loose cable connection.

Pixeled picture, Red color, blurry and smeared images

Ghost image and snowy colorful pixelation with vertical black bars? You can try a hard reset by unplugging the unit completely for 4 hours. However you may have a prob with the YSUS and the YBU-L (YBuffer Upper-Lower.) Perhaps even the Logic Main may be defective. If you are still under warranty take it to a service center ASAP. If not Get out your Voltometer. You can email me for some help...

We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct

I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.
