Blue/purple ghost-like picture

I have a Symphonic WF15L5 LCD TV. The picture is blue/purple and the people look ghost-like. Printed words (title of movie, credits, etc.) are ok. The picture looks sorta like an x-ray picture. Picture adjustment on the menu does not make a difference. Do you know what caused this? Will it be expensive to repair? Thanks for any assistance/advice you can give.

typical problem with an older set. sounds like the crts starting to fade as manufactureres Im thinking build into a set faults that they know will happen after a certain time frame and most do this is why there are so many reoccouring falures in a tv sets life. this is simply my thoughts on this subject!! You could have your local tv guy shoot the tube (not with a gun!!) with a crt rejuvenator to maybe clean off the grids of the tube. sometimes this will help BUT its a risk also Sometimes it will ruin the picture tube also. I have a set that I rejuvenated the tube 4 years ago as it looked like crap but to this date s its stil looking good as it did when new!

SOURCE: Blue ghost image in middle of the tv

I am going through the same thing( only my cloud is red)generally a crappy picture and all hued in red and pink After waiting on the Sears Service tech for a week and a half, showed up this morning and said: " Yep, another Light Engine " He did something in the service menu: "memory reset" to make the TV somewhat watchable while the LE is on order. He was going to order the same(defective) light engine until I gave him the Upgraded Part number from Hitachi: UX22202DR for the 50V500. My tech seems very knowledgable and agreed right away to order the correct part and schedule me for service( He said he has done numerous light engine replacements on this model and it takes him about 2 hours to do this in my home. I am really glad I have a extended warranty as this repair would have cost well over $800. Hope this helps.

I have replaced alot of these light engines for this problem. Yesterday I received a letter from Sony saying they are going to give an additional warranty to have the optics replaced. I just checked, your model is one of them and Sony is replacing the optic block under an extended warranty, regardless of the purchase date, until the end of October 2008. Contact Sony for an Authorized Service Center in your area or go to this site to read about it: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/news-item.pl?news_id=185&mdl=KDSR60XBR1 Have this repair done on your set and it should save you about $1300.00 to $1500.00 on the repair. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Samsung LCD tv and PS3

the problem is with the frames per second that the ps3 is putting out. i wound up calling both samsung and sony and the problem was in the settings. the ps3 allows you the option of playing in 24hz and for some reason if the option isn't turned off our tvs won't display frames at that rate. just go to the dvd settings and deselect the 24hz option, changing it from AUTO to OFF... the only problem i have with this is that this should effect the picture quality, becasue if it isn't displaying in 24hz that means it is downscaling the display and if it isn't upscaled by the tv's processor, then the display should be worse. i might be imagining it, but it does seem worse.. atleast they play now though. hope i helped.

SOURCE: Hitachi P42H401 - No Picture or Sound. Some Menus work.

There is a power button on the front and a "main" power button underneath the front panel. Pushing the main power button should reset it.

Red and blue ghosting,


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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

What kind of connections are you using?

If component (red, green, blue) double check to make sure they are seated properly. I'm thinking it sounds like the blue one got loose.

Hitachi 43FDX11B television Ghosting


I had the same problem on my Hitachi rear projection TV 53FDX20B made in Mexico. The blue convergence problem. Blue focus had shifted and appeared like a blue ghost image. I followed the step by step intructions from the fixya site. First Replaced the two STK 392-110 ICs and turned on the tv. No change. Then I went looking for the bad resistor. There was one resistor RK50 (2.7 ohm, 1Watt capacity) which is attached not right close to the printed circuit board surface but was well raised up from the board. The bands on the resistor were a little discolored. I replaced that one and turned on the tv. The convergence problem was solved. Thanks for the step by step instrucitons on your site.
