It doesn’t look good for you and your tv? Hopefully it’s not your PS4, but don’t think it is? I’d invest into a better tv then the one you have in my opinion.

Maybe there are some options that have been changed, that doesn't sound like something that would be caused by the failure of a part in the TV (unless it is something that has to do with the timing of LED backlights)

Does it happen in everything or just the PS4?

Movies and tv looks good.....no problem,no ghosting. But to be honest all this started after the latest update on the PS4.Maybe this is the problem,did they have change anything...i can't be sure.Is it true that motion blur can create ghosting on TV.....??

@AtariKidX: I would try going in the PS4 Video Output Settings and checking everything there, trying some manual settings instead of "auto", set your TV's specific native resolution, etc

And when you start a game, make sure that your TV's Game Mode is indeed turned on.

Yes, motion blur can cause ghosting, and also motion smooth in. This would be disabled on your TV's side if Game Mode was turned on.

Also on Samsung TVs you can change the input type to PC, DVI, Game, Blu Ray, and stuff like that. You could try changing it to PC or Game. Usually when you press Source on the remote you can edit the inputs by highlighting one and pressing the Tools button.

That's not a Samsung TV but the menu can be similar to that

@AtariKidX: Nice! Maybe it has to do with extra processing for resampling the image by your TV, or maybe artifacts from temporal reconstruction of a 4k image.

Oled screens are more prone to ghosting. 10 years old means that it's probably not oled, but it's definitely an old tv. May be time to update it.

Definitely not normal. A TV to get a ghosting effect sounds like it's haunted or there's a spirit inside... just like the film The Ring. I'd bin it and get a new one.

The fact that your TV is going 10 years strong is impressive. Looks to me that that refresh rate isn't keeping up. I would play around with your settings and see if you can get it to work.

That isn't a PS4 problem.
