Help!! The Image on the Television is ghosted and distorted!

THE IMAGE WAS GHOSTED WITH A RED BLUE AND GREEN SHADOW, AND NOW THERE ARE JUST RED BLUE AND GREEN LINES GOING ACROSS THE CENTER OF THE TELEVISION AND NO PICTURE. ALSO THE SET WILL CUT OFF ON ITS OWN AND THEN CUT BACK ON WITH NOTHING BUT THE RED BLUE AND GREEN LINES....IVE HAD THE SET FOR ABOUT 4 YEARS before this started happening. i got it during a black friday sale at Walmart in Georgia...thanks!

This is a convergence problem that will continue to get worse. I repaired a few of these recently and found that the main problem was poor/broken solder connections at the flyback transformer. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged.

That being said, the flyback needs to be resoldered and the pico fuses close to it need to be checked and replaced should they be open.

The parts cost for this (even when replacing the 3 pico fuses) should not exceed $10.

If you are connecting via HDMI, try either getting the firmware upgrade from the Philips website or switching to Component (Red, Green and Blue) cables.

Perfect! That is typically called "Ghosting" where there is a faint image shadow behind the image on your screen. I'm glad you were able to get it fixed!
