If you occasionally see images following people on your television screen, there could be a ghosting problem with your Smart TV. You may see a doubling or tripling of the screen image, dark patches on screen, or a picture that appears to be lagging or smudged on one side. The problem may become more prominent when you are watching sports or anything with fast moving images.
