Introduction

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.

Image ghosting is a relatively common problem with LCD TV technology and can be extremely annoying when it crops up. This guide will help you try to resolve this issue with your Westinghouse Smart TV.
