Is what I've described here harming my TV?

    Hi. I've got the Sony Wega KV27-FS13 TV. Over the last few months, I've noticed when I play certain concert DVDs (notably Springsteen Live in NYC and Peter Gabriel Growing Up Live) that there is occasionally a "trail" of the image that I've just seen. For example, I might see an image of Springsteen and his guitar, then it switches to something else; however, while switching between shots, I sometimes will see a darkened "image" of Springsteen and his guitar for maybe half a second or so that seems to be "trailing" off or fading while in transition to the next shot; after that it's completely gone. Is this ghosting? Burn in? Something else? Is it harming my TV? If it's not normal, how do I fix it? BTW, my TV has been calibrated with Avia to the best of my ability. Thanks for your help.

    The Sony WEGAs have noticeable phosphor lag. Nothing to be concerned about. You're not harming your set (just do the usual things -- lower your contrast level appropriately).
