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.

Sony Vega gone red


I'm having the same problem, red picture. Did you find a repair person and if so what was the problem and cost to fix it? My television is only 4 years old so I'd prefer to fix it if it's cost effective.

Toshiba colours gone wrong


Yes it is repairable. One of two things is wrong. The color wheel is going bad or the DMD board is going bad. These are the most common repairs needed for a Toshiba. I hope this will help.

There is no red.


Sound like it could be a monitor problem.
Try hooking it to a different monitor and see if the problem persists.
