Cause

Video signal path not properly terminated

Resolution

When a video signal is not properly terminated it reflects back on itself, resulting in secondary images called ghosts. Unless you pass the signal onto another video product, the signal needs to be terminated.

Solution:  Make sure HI-Z/75 ohm switch is in 75 ohm position unless looping video signal on to another device. Some devices will Auto Terminate and others will require programming to set for termination. Review your product user information for method that is used.
