Ok, here's the deal. I just picked up a Panasonic PT-L501u projector at a surplus auction for $180. It's obviously not the most up to date unit, but seemed worth it for the price. The lamp only has a tad over 400 hours on it (out of 2000). This is also the first projector I have ever owned, so I am quite new to the details of how they operate. The unit seems to operate flawlessly except it has a ghost image that can be seen around the edges of an object with very defined edges, such as text. The ghost image is essentially a dimly lit copy of what is being displayed, displaced by about 1 inch from the original image. Depending on what colors are displayed, there will be a strip of blue/purple image extending about an inch from the right edge of the screen. Is this a convergence issue since this is a LCD based projector? The unit is good for 1080i, but I currently have it connected to a standard def. directv unit via s-video, I don't see how that would cause a ghost image, but I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks.
