The kind of damage you are speaking of most likely means replacing the "Screen". It will require a costly repair to correct this problem. Depending on the age of the television you may want to look at replacing this unit.

    Probably, depending on the age of the unit and your frustration level of seeing the shadow. Sorry.



    Thanks,

I have a shadow in screen


Hi rakesh515
Sounds like your screen and or "backlight" for your screen of your laptop is going bad.
Plug your laptop into a different screen/monitor and see if the shadow goes away...if it does then either replace the screen and or backlight.
Please rate me

White line down side of screen


When the line is not there--go to a unused video input and examine the screen in that area--if you see a slightly darker area where the line was--it has permanently burned a mark in the screen itself.

LNT4661F tv black shadow on left won't go away been told its the back panel does this make sense?


Hi most likely yes it is your panel. However there is a chance that it could be your t-con board. I would say 80% Panel 20% chance that it might be your t-con board. The T-con board is fairly inexpensive compare to teh screen so I would give it a try first.

'Shadows' behind all texts and images on the screen


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this 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.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor 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.

Monitor display is blurry, with shadows and waves next to text


Jnanda,
Could be one of two related situations both have to do with built up magnetic flux:

!. If you have used the monitor for a significant amount of time and have never degaussed it that might be it.

To fix: Go to where your monitor's controls are (eg screen size/position, Brightness, Contrast, etc.). Providing that we are referring to an older style monitor (like a TV) and not a flat screen, you should find a degaussing button located there. This button is marked with a depiction of a horseshoe magnet. Press it.

If you have on screen settings control, hit the menu button and select the icon that looks like a horseshoe magnet.

You'll hear a buzz and the screen will go kooky for a moment.

You're then degaussed. Your problem should go away.

2. You may have moved the monitor close to a source of electromagnetic interference (or vice-versa) this will also cause that sort of thing you describe (remember that there are electrical lines in the walls (another source of EMI)

In that case move the monitor away from the EMI source or move the EMI source away from the monitor.

Remember that it could be both 1 and 2. So if the problem lessens but does not go away fully try both steps.

Dark shadow like mark on screen


The drak Shadow mark I see on my Screen looks like the black soot like marks you see at the end of a flourescent tube. I think it is the back light.
