    Notice alot more on HD but seems the image is shadowed on the left side of the image on screen.  Example:  golf flag-seems that image is shadowed to the left of the flag.

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.
Shadowing - 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.
Figure 2
  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.

Sounds to me like the video board is bad. If it covers a good portion of the screen it is likely not the panel itself and rather something to do with the processing.

If the model above is correct you are describing a bad optical light engine, about the most expensive part inside that set.

Green outline/shadow on dark images or backgrounds


LVDS Cable is corroded - This is the cable the provides video from the TV Video Process board to the LCD Panels Timing Control Board.

Honestly, if you can take the TV back do so. If not, Service it using the manufacturer warranty

Dark screen since new


Wow only 10 then major work, hum. First if pic is:Split screen picture with one half darker than the other half. "Deep Field Imager" is set to the demo mode, press the "video" button repeatedly to cycle through the video settings until Deep Field Imager is accessed and then change the setting from demo to "on" or "off" depending on preference. Also u can try:1. Dark blue raster with faint movement in the background, suspect the FMT PCB part # 934C153001 . Also1. May be intermittent. Remove and reseat the DVI cable between the Chassis and Optical engine 2. Removing and reseating the DVI cable does not resolve, replace the Optical Engine part # 938P015020 Hope this helps Tom!!
