'Shadows' behind all texts and images on the screen

I'm seeing everything double, and it's not because of my eyes! How can I remove the greyish 'shadows' behind all the images on the screen?

    Is the monitor connected by a digital (dvi) or analog cable?

[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

The "shadowing" you talk about is due to cables in back of your computer, touching or too close together. I had this happen to mine. I separated, moved the cables apart, and no more shadows !! Sounds too easy, but it works. Try it.

See if you can set the sharpness a little lower in the monitor setup on the pc, not the monitor first. Then try sharpness on the monitor.

The monitor is showing doubles or shadows of every image on it. from icons on desktop to text in web browser and every other detail.

If it has a removeable cable between the PC and screen, try removing it and plugging it in and trading ends (plug the end that was in the PC into the back of the screen and vice-versa...) If the connector is even slightly loose or the cable is going bad it will cause the problem you're having, and as long as it's removeable you can easily get & replace the cable... Good luck!

Multi-color double images or shadows and curved screen

Alrighty, very common problem on this set. Here's a rundown of the repair if you're a DYI:

With the back cover off you'll notice a set of boards on the bottom of the TV and a pair of boards sitting up over the two bottom boards. The problem lies in the upper-right hand board which is the color convergence power supply. Either replace or repair this board. The repair involves the main power mosfet (a three legged regulator on a heat sink) and two diodes next to it.

Next, the bottom right hand board needs to be removed and a fuse replaced next to the flyback. If you are versed in electronics I can detail the repair further otherwise you're going to have to have a shop do the repair.

Shadows and text curved. Double images

The convergence IC's need to be replaced. The generic part # on them is STK392-110. This is not easily done by yourself.

Double image on green

Focus won't help if it is a double image. Sounds like convergence amps need to be replaced. Very typical on these.

Double Images / Shadows on the monitor screen

I read through other solutions to this problem because I had the same problem. I checked to make sure electrical cords were properly attached, and vola! problem solved! I had no idea this problem could be fixed just by checking the cord connections. Thanks a million for posting this solution. I had been putting up with the shadowing, streaking for months! You really made my day.
