Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a 42" big screen DTV1080i that I purchased approx. three yrs ago, since then the thing has broken three times, the first time the picture and color was distorted, it was under wrty.the second time the TV would not turn on the on button just blinks, It was under wrty. because I had taken the extended wrty. from Curcuit City, I believe the repair man said it was some sort of circuit board. It is now doing the same thing that it did a year ago, the circuit board only lasted one year. I'm very displeased with this product, it seems like it was defective from the start. I really wanted to tell customer service, but this was the only site I could find.

SOURCE: Distorted Picture

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Samsung dryer makes loud noise; just started


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'purchased approx. 2 yrs ago. always had trouble'?

Even whilst under guarantee/warantee?

I need to explain our situation.The washing machine forum is just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing mostly mechanical and electrical/electronic problems and giving guidance on these for free on the web. In addition the members are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer of washing machines or detergents whatsoever so we have to be carefull what we say;-0)


Sorry but all I can suggest is that you call your local Samsung service agent to see if it can cure your problems. You do not want to go to the expense of purchasing a different washer!

If this has clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hyundai 42 inch plasma tv


Mine's out, too. Red Horizontal bars Left and Right, picture goes in and out(meaning fuzzy-no picture) on Left half and the TV tuner is gone, I can play DVD with half of a screen most of the time, occasionally the whole screen.

I should have returned my "returnable model" three years ago when I noticed Wal-Mart was NOT accepting returns when purchased after a certain date (I had purchased just before that date) Big, Big, OOPS!!

Repair estimate starts at $800, not guaranteed, and that does NOT include repairing the TV tuner. Ouch, Ouch, Ouch.

I see Hyundai stopped selling these units... anyone in the Chicago area that wants it for parts, let me know.
