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: Have this repair done on your set and it should save you about $1300.00 to $1500.00 on the repair. Hope this helps.

This solves the problem permanently.
First, be sure the television is un-plugged, but know that you can still be seriously injured by an un-plugged tv. Especially if it were to fall out a third story window and land on your head and crush your skull. So be careful even after it is un-plugged.
Next, it is best if you get someone to assist you with this next step, that way you don't have to keep getting up and moving around to the front of the tv to see the screen.... Plug the television back into a 110-120v power source and with your assistant standing facing the front of the tv screen, remove the back panel, and using a 28 to 32 oz Hart knurled framing hammer, very carefully reach inside with the hammer in hand and smash the large mirror that reflects the image.
Then, using a can of flat black spray paint,(dont use gloss paint because it will likely cause an awful glare), spray paint the absolutely single most profane cuss word you are familiar with in reverse on the inside back of the tv screen in giant letters while at the same time scream the "F" word 5 times.
Next, ask your assistant how cool that looked and sounded and get him to help you toss that piece of crap out the front door and into the back of your truck where you can drive to the nearest tv repair shop and dump the remains of that electronic trash right at the front door of that shiesty business. Those people are all thieves. Don't trust a one of them!
Next, either be patient and wait until someone you know offers to give you his old bigscreen or stop being such a freakin' cheapskate and breakdown and buy a new one.
Hope this helps.

My Samsung LN52A650A LCD TV is displaying green shadows and lines after being turned on for 15 minutes. This has been isolated to the display as I get the same result from DVR or DV player.

May not be a do it yourself repair, could be main board or even a loose connection at a plug inside the display panel (fatal) or outside of it.

LCD picture distortion.

This is caused by a failure of the main board. The failure causes the refresh rate of the unit to be off creating a trailing or ghost effect. This will require a technician to replace that board though. Hope this help.

Yes, it called ghost image. You can try to go in the service menu, and scroll to ghost image. Turn tv off, wait till red light stops blinking, and then on the remote press the input button. at the same time press the power button on the tv. this should put you in the service mode. If nervous about this call tech assist at Hittachi.
