What can cause LCD television shadows?

I have shadows on my television.


Answer by  MikeG (1650)

If you have something with a strong electrostatic charge and it has touched the screen, this could cause shadowing. Also if you are running only a 60hz LCD TV, You will notice a lot more blur than a television with a higher refresh rate. This could also be an indication of something internal going bad.

Are they spots or shadows? You can get regular shadows on your LCD television if you are in a dimly lit environment. If they are spots that don't go away, then you have a problem with the television itself. Look in your manual and see if you can degause it by pressing a button. This can reset the screen

A common cause of LCD television shadows would be leaving your t.v on for a significant amount of time. For example, if you leave your tv on lifetime network and the logo remains on the bottom of the screen for a while, it may remain when switching channels.

LCD television shadows is caused by touching too much the LCD..or when you flip the power connector that connects the INVERTER board to your back light's power connection and change the polarization of the back light itself...there are many causes...and when maybe always switching the channel that may cause also...

Shadows can be caused by having something in front of the light source. There is probably something in front of your light that you have not noticed due to watching too much TV.

But it is a new TV. I have the cable coming into the HD cable box with a HDMI cable running from the box to the TV. The lettering and scores are not very clear.  add a comment
