Question about Samsung Televison & Video
When I have got the TV guide up or Menu on the television when I switch back to TV the image of the Menu previously looked at is still burned on the background of the picture like a ghost.
SOURCE: blue discoloration
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.

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.
