    there is trim arouond the front of the tv that pops off and they there are several brackets that hold the scerrn in place that you have to take out so toy can clean the screen and while there you may want to clean the tubes as well as they will be there where you can get to them.the front trim just pops loose and the rest you will be able to see. ron

    i would not replace the bulb until you know for sure that its the problem. i would go ahead and clean the screen and clean the tubes while you are in there but dont try to replace the tubes until you have the tv checked out.just wipe them down really well on the glass part and then if you want to have someone look at it do so but dont overspend it may not be worth the mone to fix

    one thing more.....have a repairman give you an estimate for the repair before you let the do anything and if you think its worth it then go for it if not just let it going to guess at least 400.00 to repair just from what youve said here but it could be a bit less depending on what they find wrong.the tubes alone are about 300 each so as i said dont be in a big hurry,,,,,have it checked first and see what they tell you then you decide from there..its your decision

Samsung lnt4065 problem

It sounds like the TV was most likely dropped, and there is probably some breakage! I would call right away to have the set exchanged!

My tv did this while it was still under warranty. It was diagnosed as cracked horizontal deflection coil.  They replaced the coil.  I hope you can get it fixed. I know it is very annoying.
