WS-55807: Images are dark on right side of display, but will go away after 3-4 hours.
The problem with my TV is that images are dark on the right side of the display whenever there are white images on the left. The bright images on the left leave what appear to be a streaky shadow on everything to the right side of that image. Objects above or below that streak are not affected. For example if there is white text on the left middle of the screen, everything to the right of that text and on the same line becomes dark. Anything above or below that text is not affected. Another thing, is that after about 3-4 hours, the issue is no longer seen, and images are normal. I'm guessing there may be a loose heatsink somewhere, and once the tv warms up enough, the heatsink makes contct with an IC/microchip, causing the issue to go away. Any thoughts/comments is greatly appreciated.

You could be on the right track get some freeze spray and go around all the parts to see if you can make it act up, same with heatgun or hair dryer when first turned on heat one area at a time to narrow your problem down

Do some research for parts by the model number--if its a LCD it likely has a inverter that drives the brightness to each side of the screen---either right is bad or possible problem with the actual display panel.
Sounds like the lcd screen might be going bad. There are no display settings that can modify parts of the screen. It's all or nothing as far as settings go. Have you tried hooking up an external monitor to see if it displays correctly? If it shows correctly on an external monitor the problem is definitely with the lcd screen. If they both show the same image of brightness on the left side, then your video card in the laptop might be going bad.
LCD stands for liquid crystal display.These types of displays have been around for awhile and are commonly used with computers.One reason for their big popularity is the ability to produces a better picture than CRT monitors but also being much thinner. Pro’s
Low Energy Consumption – LCD monitors use very low amounts of power. This is why it is very commonly used in battery powered devices.
LCD screens also reduce the amount of glare on the screen which can be very beneficial if your TV is in a room with lots of light.
If an image is left on the screen too long, LCD screens are less likely to experience the image being burned into the screen. If this does occur, it’s easier to repair than other types of TV’s.
The viewing angle of an LCD TV is typically not as great as Plasma but the difference is not great enough to make a huge difference.
LCD TV’s can sometimes get dead pixels which aren’t typically covered under warranty. Although they are very small, they can become very annoying.
Brightness levels aren’t as great as Plasma and it’s not possible to display darks quite as dark.
Plasma technology hasn’t been as widely used as LCD in previous years but has become very popular in large HDTV’s. Although they have historically been more expensive than LCD TV’s, they are becoming more comparable in price. Pro’s
Brightness and color are the major advantages of Plasma TV’s. They produce rich colors along with very deep blacks.
Their wide viewing angles allow more people to be able to watch TV comfortably.
The pixels of Plasma TV’s are lit individually unlike LCD screens. Because of this feature, the pixels can be completely turned off to display truck black colors.
The lifespan of a Plasma TV is typically shorter than other types of TV’s. The lifespan can be extended by turning down the brightness of the screen.
Plasma TV’s are more susceptible to screen burn-in where an image is “burnt” onto the screen when left on the screen too long such as a network logo in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Plasma TV’s require a panel of glass to cover it. This glass can reflect light and make it difficult to see the picture. If placed in a dark room, this typically isn’t an issue.

You can make several adjustments to improve your images such as lightening dark areas, changing the exposure, sharpening blurred edges, and changing the brightness and contrast.
Exposure adjusts the overall intensity of light in an image.
Adaptive Lighting improves only the dark areas in an image without affecting the bright areas.
Brightness adjusts the amount of light in colors ranging from light to dark.
Contrast adjusts the difference in brightness between light and dark areas of an image.
Sharpness helps define edges and the smoothness of texture in an image. Use this tool to make a blurred image appear more focused.
Adjusting the image
Follow the steps below to make adjustments:
Click the View tab and select the image you want to edit by either clicking the image, or by clicking the small box at the bottom left corner of the image.
Figure 1: Select the image
Click the Edit tab and then click the Advanced tab.
On the Advanced tools tab, click Adjust Image .
Select an adjustment from the list on the left.
Figure 2: Adjusting the brightness
The Exposure adjustment is automatically applied when the Adjust Image tool opens. Eight variations of the image are displayed on the left. The current image is displayed in the center. Each image represents a different level of adjustment. When you move the pointer over any of the images on the left, a large version of the image is displayed. Use Preferences to turn this large image preview on or off and to set the timing for the display.
If you want to use a different adjustment tool, select Adaptive Lighting , Brightness , Contrast , or Sharpness from the list.
Select one of the images on the left.
Do one of the following:
Click Accept to accept all changes and exit from the Color Toolkit.
Click Cancel to discard all changes and exit from the Color Toolkit.
If you have finished modifying the image, do one of the following to save your changes:
Click Save to overwrite the original image.
Click Save As to save the modified image with a different name.
Flyback transformers usually have 2 adjustable rods - 1 is for focus the other is for screen (G2) voltage. try turning Clockwise the Screen adjust with brightness-contrast at max. Till you see white diagonal lines, then go back until the lines disappear - then tune the brightness to your desired level.
You may have a bad Fly Back transformer. The focus and screen(brightness) controls are located on this transformer. Some of the new RCA's have had problems with this transformer.
If the screen control opens up the picture may either go dark or light which would cause your problem.
Also a bad Picture tube could cause this. It shouldn't since the tv is not very old though.
I've seen a few new ones go bad.
