Hi,

One will typically find that the digital broadcast is superior to a terrestrial broadcast (unless HD). I have not seen or heard of ghosting from a satellite feed on a plasma. It might be a problem with the cables you are using from the receiver to the plasma.

Here are few troubleshooting steps you can try:

ONE: Disconnect the power cord for 4 hours. Then when you power it back up the internal soft codes will automatically reset to factory defaults.

TWO: The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

If the problem still persists you have to get it repaired or replaced.

Goodluck..

    check whether the wires from the cable box and the dvd player are not shoting....this could also be due to noise signal in the cables...

Samsung Model: HP-R4262 42" Plasma Problem, pink pixelation/ghosting


Onece the plasma heats up it shrinks a little, i think the cause is that you are low on plasma, so when i heats it shrinks and since the plasma cycles, the area low on plasma wil move slowly around the screen, take this to a repairman and more plasma can be added to it.
