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

    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 set has failed twice in the three years ive had it.lucky im an engineer!!hope to have helped somewhat,steve.

Following the beginning of digital switchover, pressing the menu button only comes up with 'picture quality' and is unable to access 'installation'.

If your TV is not in Digital it won't give you the tuning option.
Select DTV from the on screen menu, (like scart 1 scart 2 etc). When you have found DTV select it and then press menu for tuning.
Hope that helps.

This is the common problem of all brands of inkjet printers friend. You should atlease power on and off weekly once every inkjet printer. Otherwise the inkjet cartridges may claute.Call Epson service people they will come and clear it. Dont clean your cartridges yourself and waste valuable inks.

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.)
