My parents tv has a shadow recently too, that's a Samsung LCD, also interested in knowing what causes this, I don't think it's just samsungs though as we had a Panasonic one last year that had it.

I've read a lot on the AV forums about LG, most of their customers are pee'd off with their unreliability and non existant customer service.
I wouldn't touch LG products.

Nice one happy

i guess its not adjusting the screen that causes this.

Our Toshiba one in the bedroom has had none of this but we contantly adjust screen settings depending on what we are using it with, i also leave the tv to automatically adjust depending on the light in the room, leave the auto backlight on and it will adjust accordingly also.

I reckon this affects the peeps who never adjust their set.

The Fix didn't work. I contacted LG just now and they weren't concerned how young the TV was, just that it was out of warranty so they won't fix it without first paying 395.

I basically told them i wouldn't pay that to fix it as once this problem is fixed, that rest of the tv is 3 years old and something else would probably go.......

Ill have to replace it but won't be touching LG again, I didn't realize LG is actually the cheap shitty brand "GOLDSTAR" that knocked out shit VCR's in the Eighties. Then the founder merged with his other company " Lucky " to form "Lucky/Goldstar" and soon just went by the initials of new company LG.

Ive also read on the internet they use samsungs rejected panels?

I used to repair LCD and Plasmas, LG models are a nightmare to get parts for as they all tend to suffer from the same problems so replacement panels (if you can get them) are expensive.
