Weird residual images on black portions of video
Everything else with the Vizio e60-C3 TV seems to be working great except for this one problem.
It's especially noticeable during the credits after a movie where the background is black and the white text scrolls up. What I'm seeing is a residual lighter band that trails from the outermost edge of the lines of text. Not white, just not as black as the background. It remains that way until some other line of text scrolls over top of that section and then the residual looks like the new line of text.
Another example of the same thing is if a scene goes from something bright to a black scene. There will be a residual "ghost" image of the bright part of the previous scene. It doesn't fade over time. The ghost image will stay there indefinitely until some new brighter picture is displayed in that spot.
I don't know if it's the display itself or something to do with data compression? It almost seems like the TV is trying to conserve processor power by not refreshing any pixel it sees as being "pretty close" to what it was before. It's hard to see in this image, but the vertical line above the "h" in "Weidhass" is a streak from some other letter above it. The haziness is only because of how I had to set the camera to pick up the faint line. The text is actually crisp with okay contrast.
I've had to set the contrast really low and turn off most, if not all, of the "enhanced" picture features of the tv just to get the "ghost image" problem to the point where it is barely noticeable, but at the sacrifice of have a generally lousy picture overall. I don't feel like resetting everything for a picture to show how bad the problem is when the rest of the settings are where they normally should be. You can see it from across the room.
Anyone have any ideas what the heck is causing this? Or even what this type of issue is called?
Is this a good question?
