Blue ghost on left side of screen only when on hi def channels
I have a ghost image of blue but only on the left side of the screen. It only appears when viewing the hi def channels. I tried the convergene adjustments they work but do not correct the left side issue. The other digital channels seem fine...other inputs seem fine too. I replaced component cables, and switched hi def cable box too. Cable service wasn't familiar with problem. Like the unit otherwise...just don't want to spend a lot for something i don't need to replace. Suggestions?

if you mean the left and right sides of screen, look for a button on remote might be labeled several things, like picture size, aspect etc.. the borders pop up when you go to a non high def channel. some chs put borders all around the picture in those cases you won't be able to get rid of those.
Here sounds like your override setting on cable box needs to be set. Here is how to fix that- 1. On remote push the button at the top that says CBL or Cable. 2. On remote push power button. 3. On the remote push the menu button. This should bring up an internal menu called user settings. 4 Use the remote to scroll down to 4:3 OVERRIDE and use the LEFT or RIGHT arrow keys on the remote to change the value to 480i and see if this clears up your problem. If not repeat and change the setting to 480p and one of these settings should fix your problem.

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

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.
