Question
2 sec's after i turn the tv on, it ghosts and 4 fuzzy lights appear at the top left of the screen. it's the same even if i put in a movie. so far i've tried;
unplugged all night
reset it about 8 times
changed the antenna
held in the off button for about 3 min's

model no. dp32746

Answer
My guess is the inverter board is defective.  It drives the display and is a common source of problems for this and other sets of this size and technology.

You can usually find them with an Internet search. Expect it to be around $30 to $40 price range.

Hope this will help.
