Question about Samsung HCM4215W 42" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Slipped Bulbs??????? Hi I have a problem with my tv. I bought the tv off a friend 3 weeks ago and now the colour has gone funny. Its almost as if the red bulb has slipped and everything has a red shadow and its a bit slanted?? He did move it and the tv wasnt kept upright, it was at a slight angle? But this was 3 weeks ago so im not sure if the move affected it? I know nothing about tv's? Is this problem easily fixed? Thanks - Jenny

    How do i readjust it?

    ive also got the same problem with the red bulb being off,

    altho when it happened there was a distinct burning smell coming from the tv so it leads me to think that the damage is far more severe than just the bulb being off.

    does anyone have any ideas??

    I purchased my TV from ebay and I don't have warranty..

Sounds like you have the classic convergence problem these sets suffer from.there are two ics that will most likely need replacing,type stk 392-040 if i recall correctly.these dont come cheap neither,plus the engineers charge on top.replacement is straightforward,and chassis removal is too easy...guess samsung have millions of these sanyo ics waiting to fleece us all.my set has failed twice in the three years ive had it.lucky im an engineer!!hope to have helped somewhat,steve.

if you bought it under one year ago then the retailer should be obliged to either replace it or repair it. I would look into this further, ask to speak to the manager or something casue when a tv switches itself off it indicates an error inside and turns itself off to prevent further damage.

Assuming all power supplies are OK, you most likely have a bad CRT grid, and that respective (red) tube must be replaced. I'm sorry that it went that way, as this repair is not cheap....accordianman

WILL NOT TURN ON


Did you say you got it from an X friend? LOL Sorry, its not funny, It obviously didn't like being moved. Sounds like solder problem in the power supply somewhere, hunt round locally for a good shop. (probably a few hundred dollars to get fixed.)
