Hi Michael TLV,
Thanks for the prompt reply, although now I'm a little frightened about the "bullets in the hands of children" comment. Would you advise me not to attempt this ? I've had the TV for about 3 1/2 years now and this green ghost image is about to drive me nuts !! It's not really noticed by my wife but I see it every time I turn the TV on. I will admit that I am no technophile, but I figured I could at least do this one tweak, right ? It's what UMR recommended. This problem couldn't be a lamp about to go out, could it ? I've got a spare lamp, but other than this ghosting, everything else is just fine. I'll wait for you or someone else to advise me on whether or not I should do just this one tweak. If anyone else has an opinion, please let me know. You certainly won't be hurting my feelings, since I don't want to do further damage to the set. Thanks again.
If anyone wants to walk me through this tweak, (step by step), I would really appreciate it. (I know, I know........I'm a DUMMY !!! LOL. Thanks.
