Re: picture shifted and ghost image
Try using an input other than the tuner. I.e a DVD player or game system on the front inputs. If the picture looks OK on the other input, your tuner is damaged and will need replaced, if it looks bad also, try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes and then go through the setup process in the menus. If this fails seek a repair shop.

It seems to me the tv is not getting enough power to turn on. make sure the tv is pluged into a surge protector and then to the wall. no power strips with other things pluged in. all by itself to the plug. you always want to put a surge protector on all the small and big electronics for if you do not if lightin come in it would burn everything up. you might have had ligting come in and that is why some of your stuff is having problems now. if you own he home get a whole house serge protector. it will save you in the long run becuase if there is surge from the power company or from lighting then all your stuff will be protected.
The tv power supply board it is dead 100% it is dead that board where the tv power a/c plug into it.Sometimes u get a burn or a chart coal marks if the power surge have big enough charges to the board,not it still kills board too because electromagnatic charges of the storm kills every electronic parts in came in contact with.Take the tv aparts.The tv power supply board are alway the one these two boards are the causes alway and the first board to dies .Replaced the tv power supply board first.Tv should work now,if not the main tv Tuner signal board it is also dead too.That the board where the incomming broadcasting signal wire plug into it.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement first and also the main tv Tuner signal board too,if necessary.70-80% changes the power supply board and necessary the main tv Tuner signal boad too tv should work again.20% sometimes the whole tv it fries and a total lost.
try cycling the power (unplug 2 minutes) and plug in and wait 30 seconds and turn back on. if this doesn't work, could have been a surge, your protector should have saved it, but could have been through cable or something. surge protectors will guarantee no damage for several years, check with the manufacturer maybe they'll cover the repair.
for using FixYa. A plasma TV is a very hard working device. It is
working harder than any TV that has been built before, and as a result it
produces a lot of heat. 75% of technical problems in plasma TV's are caused by
overheating problems. X, Y sustain, buffer boardscontrols
picture, fires the gas, and many others functions. When either of these boards goes
bad common problems include negative image, no image, vertical or horizontal
stripes on picture, turns on and than turns off, and many more. You’ll need to
open the back off the TV and check for any swollen/bulged/leaky capacitors on these
boards and replace whichever has gone bad. All this is only recommended if you
have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these
units contain high voltages even when switched off. Please do accept the solution if
the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
