About a month ago my wife was watching and noticed, what I can only describe a blue ghosting or smearing that trails off to the right objects. Whats odd is every part of the picture doesn't seem to have the problem, for example if I were to put up a 5 bar log steps test pattern, only 3 of the 5 steps would have this "ghosting". Because there are certain intensities that don't do this, you can have scenes that are totally unaffected and others that are down right unwatchable.
Another example would be a horizontal grey ramp will have a vertical stripe of the ghosting and up towards white is more of an interference of the same blue color. The ghosting will move with a moving picture, it's an odd issue and has me quite stumped. I've attached some pictures that can show the problem better than my descriptions, although not all the problems show up. If any one can help me out, I would appreciate it. I do have access to the service manual, and am pretty comfortable taking the set apart. If any one needs more or better photos of the issue I can provide those as well.
Thanks in advance.
