Question about LG RU-44SZ51D 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
There is a black shadow down the left hand side of the screen about a quater of an inch from the left towards the center of the screen?
Is it an LCD or DLP? The Model below suggests it is an DLP. Sounds as if you have the dreaded light tunnel collapse common to all LG DLP TV's. Inside the light engine there is a square tube made up of four mirrors. These mirrors deform and crack with the heat of the lamp. They fall down over the light aperture and cause a shadow of varying degrees. It is fixable now at a realistic price ( used to have to replace engine) as LG have made the parts available. It would take a competent tech around three hours to complete or if you are technically minded you could do it yourself. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

could be, but first take out the cartridge then look inside the unit there is a black roller, kind of spongy or hard rubber, is the black part towards the right? grab it and give it a tug and see if you can SLIDE it to the left if so then it needs to be replaced, that is your problem.
It could also be the fuser, are the copies on the left coming out smudged or with a grainy shadow? then it's the fuser.
