The set is a couple years old. When it displays images with dark areas bordering light areas, especially with dark appearing to the right of the light, a ghost image appears along the light side of the border. The ghost consists of red stripes that appear stationary relative to the image (i.e. moving images appear to pass by the stripes) but it only appears in the area along these light/dark borders. It appears in HD and SD, as well as signals through different inputs (cable box and DVD player, both connected via component cables). Adjusting the image revision didn't fix the problem.

When you leave your TV (no matter what kind) and you leave it for long periods of time on a static image or something.. the image tends to burn in to the screen... so changing the glass would be a way to fix it.... the problem is that that kind of repairmen is more expensive and difficult than buying a new set...

Make sure your contrast isn't set too high. Most ghosting is caused by either contrast, brightness or tint issues. Try adjusting these settings. Also check if there is a Dynamic contrast setting for your TV as well as this can cause ghosting also.
Thats usually caused by bad flex tab bonds on the LCD panel itself. If you search for flex tab issues vidoes it will show how the pisture can get slow motion in areass as well as double images in that area.
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

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:

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:
Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
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.
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.
Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once.The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
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).
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.
Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
1.Power off -- let bulb cool. 2. Display - 5 - VOL+ - Power (in quick sequence) to display service menu. 3. Go into the user menu and set auto revision back to auto. 4. Put an image on the screen that shows the problem. I always found the edges of a 4:3 aspect ratio signal displayed the ghosting very well on my set. 5. Use 2 to scroll through the categories to find D GM TG 6. Use 1 to scroll through items in D GM TG to find V POS D 7. Write down current value. 9. Use 3 and 6 to change the value to minimize the ghosting. You should only need to move it up or down a value or two. 10. Press Mute - Enter to save the changes. 11. Power off and let the bulb cool.
Are the stripes u are talking abt look like these? If yes these are called Moiré patterns. Here's How to fix them..
If your system has a Moiré Reduction Control similar to those in computer monitors,
then you can use it to reduce or eliminate the patterns. Just make sure, you write
your default settings before you change it.
Some folks have gotten electronic fixes (firmware or software) from TV manufacturers but
results have been spotty at best.
Slightly defocusing the image via the mechanical focus of your set appears to be the
best bet. This has been proven effective in various TVs. Be careful not to
over do-it though so that you don't significantly degrade image sharpness.
