There is a few things that can cause this. A model number would be a big help for me to assist you, this can be found on the back of the set. Also if you can email me a picture of the boards in the set so i can see where the burn mark is that would be helpfull. Theres 2 things that come to mind with your discription, 1 is a fluid leak from one of the crts, and the other is sometimes theres a burt cap by the flyback transformer that can cause a dead set. I can determine this better with a picture or 2.

Thank You

Is Samsung HLP4663W 46 in a 1080 or 720?

chitown78 ,

It is either or both, depending on how you look at it. It can display either format along with 480i and 480p. The display mode is determined by the signal presented to the unit. If a 1080i format is present it will display it in 1080i. Also any other format that it can present (the one's that I listed) will be presented in that format when present.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

2003 Samsung HDTV 1080i 42" wide screen has just developed picture problems distorted and red. Almost looks 3D. MODEL NO.:HCN4226WX/XAC SERIAL NO.: 37083CEX400297E

This is a convergence problem and can easily be fixed either by resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs or by replaceing them if they prove to be defective. Can you solder? Do you feel confident in replacing these parts?
Keep us posted.

Sir, Pull up the on screen menu and make sure the unit is set to display 1080i or 720p instead of 480i. This may be the issue. Good Luck
