I've got the same issue on my hitachi hds52a. It's a bit irritating, not so much when it happens with menus, but it also happens when there is some hard edged horizontal object in the picture, e.g. if someone is standing in front of some window blinds the "ghosting" will run across the the person's face. now a couple of people in this thread have said that this is normal. maybe it's common, but is it normal? can it be eliminated somehow? i have everything running through a power conditioner and i've tried disconnecting my cable coax altogether to make sure that wasn't the problem. any other suggestions?
