I understand that the problem does not go away with the replacement light engine. Avoid Hitachi and just spend more bucks and get a Sony or Panasonic.

I would to see a picture of what it looks like. What you are describing sounds like a faulty LCD panel tab. Samsung LCD panels are known for this problem.

3" shadow on left side of screen


watch for speakers being to close to the tv. if a speaker has a big magnet on the back of it, it will cause it to have the shadow and then it will turn green. so make sure there is nothing with a magnet close to the tv because it will ruin the tube on the tv.

SHADOWS ON THE SCREEN


If its just half the screen then you need someone to 'carefully' look at the multi pin connector that connects to the display itself (on top of the screen inside) wriggling it may be all thats needed.

I've had bad connections causing different brightness levels before on JVc sets. Its not a DIY job to get to it!!

Shadowing


GOOD DAY ND GOOD LUCK;

TRY THIS, IT WILL CORRECT CONCERN:

50V500 ONLY
GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
CONDITION:
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.
CORRECTION:

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.
03b_ghost_image01.gif Figure 1
  1. BEFORE CONTINUING: CONFIRM THAT THE R, G and B DRIVE ARE SET AT 40.
  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.


  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.

  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).

Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed
  5. I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL, big IRISH.

Check settings first to make sure no one changed anything out of the ordinary. Are the shadows that of a color or darkened shadow? It could be out of convergence, which can be corrected in the menu - or it could be low quality video cables to. Also, if there is no green, does a white color show up when you're in a menu mode (Red+Blue+Green = White Image)? If so, then the green picture tube is working and it's just a color adjustment, otherwise you may have to invest in a new green picture tube.
