SOURCE: Blue ghost image in middle of the tv

I am going through the same thing( only my cloud is red)generally a crappy picture and all hued in red and pink After waiting on the Sears Service tech for a week and a half, showed up this morning and said: " Yep, another Light Engine " He did something in the service menu: "memory reset" to make the TV somewhat watchable while the LE is on order. He was going to order the same(defective) light engine until I gave him the Upgraded Part number from Hitachi: UX22202DR for the 50V500. My tech seems very knowledgable and agreed right away to order the correct part and schedule me for service( He said he has done numerous light engine replacements on this model and it takes him about 2 hours to do this in my home. I am really glad I have a extended warranty as this repair would have cost well over $800. Hope this helps.

Hello mixtking...

There are a number of things that can cause ghosting.

Badly placed aeriels can result in ghost images, although most folks no longer use these. A bad feed from a cable service can do the same.

Within the home, poor cables between the source (cable box, dvd player for example) and the television can cause a ghost image as well. If the ghost images are smeared, and to the right of the real image, it is likely to be one of these things. Often just replacing the connecting cable will solve the problem as these cables do dry out and develop interior cracks which cause ghosting.

In the case of three tube projection televisions, each of the three images needs to be aligned precisely to the others. If this is a CRT based projector, it is quite possible that the convergence adjustments have drifted.

If the ghost images are colored, that is a good indication that convergence or alignment needs to be looked at. Most CRT projection television manuals show the method to set up the convergence, anywhere between 5 minutes' work and an hour's work. If the same ghost images are seen from all sources, then this is the likely problem.

How do I fix my Sharp tv model LC-42D62U? On the tv screen now shows horizontal lines with repeating ghost images.

Hi Paul,
The horizontal lines on the screen are virtually NEVER caused by a bad T-con board. These horizontal lines indicate a defective LCD panel (screen). The Screen has small ICs that become defective overtime and that it isn't fixable unless replacing the entire screen.

My led samsung tv has a horizontal line and the upper right corner shows a white vertical lines

Not good. You may have a tab failure. A repair shop may be able to diagnose and repair this, but most likely the lcd panel is broken. The panel is the most expensive part of flat tv's. A new panel will cost more than a used tv.
