Answer by  severaltimes (247)

"Ghosting" on projection TVs is usually due to a projector which is out of alignment. Different models of projection TV vary significantly in how they are aligned. Searching for how to access the service menu on your model may tell you how to reset the alignment. If that does not work, try increasing the contrast.

This could be that the tv is just getting old, or you accidently changed a setting on it. Consult the user guide, or take it in to a repair shop for them to have a look at it. If it's old, it might be best to just replace it with a newer television.

A ghost image is usually a sign that the projector is out of alignment. Try to look in the service menu of your TV and you may be able to reset the alignment that way. Another cause could be a low contrast, you can increase it for results.

If your television has a static image (such as the menu screen on a DVD or the menu screen of a video game system)that has been on the screen for even 10 minutes, it can sometimes cause a ghost image.

It could be your electrical outlet. If the television is not connected to an extension cord of energy saving outlet ( one of those multi plugs that keeps the electical currents safe from overheating), get one right away. Make sure your t.v is hooked up to satallite or cable.

If an image on the screen has been in one spot for so long and has not moved in awhile it may cause this.
