Horizontal lines and shadows

Hi, my set has started acting funny. It seems after its been on for a while, I get horizontal lines and a ghostly shadow image. Panasonic said to unplug it from the surge protector which I did to no avail. Any ideas?

    Signal source doesn't appear to matter ... same problem happens with a DVD or even if there is no video source -- I can tell by looking at the menus. Sounds like a service call is next.

    Well according to the authorized service center, the light engine needs replacing to a tune of about $1700. It's not worth repairing so I'm talking to Panasonic about what to do next. The set is less than 2 years old.

Good Day, lperlste;

Yes, I would for sure follow up with factory. Panasonic does have device that help reprogram the light engine. I for the name as of now but I will get back with you on this. Iv'e used it A couple times with Pan only and it does correct most light engine problems.

I'll get back and let you the proper device name.

Hold on, big IRISH.

Good Day;

Try doing the same thing to cable/sat box. If to no avail call your signal provider, or possible your TV is experiencing a convergence problem, if picture is concave. Does it do the same thing when you play tape/dvd?? If it does it's the TV, if not the signal source.

Good Luck, big irish.

Let us know.

Why is there ghost printing/shadows on my xerox workcentre 7335?

You don't say if the ghost is a particular colour, by ghost I suspect you mean similar to a drop shadow.
Firstly run off an internal test print, one of each colour if the grid lines are fine and showing no signs of shadow then your problem is not an internal problem. Don't send a C,M,Y,K test print from your computer, you can't eliminate colours that way.
If you can pin the problem down to one colour it could be a particular drum unit. Investigate from there.
Good Luck.

Problem with shadows showing on monitor

LCD Monitor Shadow Effect
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this is very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
Solution: Keep the two cables - (power cable and monitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.
