Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung PCL542R Manufactured in 2002 color is off

I have asked 4 techs with 15+ yrs experience and got 3 different answers :( My color is turning a little yellowish/green and have seen a yellow or organish circle about 5" in dia on the screen but only when it's on for awhile. I puilled off the front to look into the 3 tubes... Red has a image, Green has a image and Blue has no image but is as bright as the other tubes so I'm guessing this is probably my problem. 2 tech say it might be the Board, 1 says it has to be coolant and the other tech said the tube is going bad and they don't make the tubes anymore, then goes on to say SAMSUNG tubes can't be recooled... Who is right lol Any ideas ? I'd haul it in for service but no truck and they want $100 just to come look at it.

If you did not see the picture on the blue tube; that is your problem -- the drive signal is not getting to the video amp and the mixed color from the green tube and the red tube is giving you a different color wich is unnormal. a good picture is when the 3 crt are emitting the video

Strange yellowish circle appearing on white shirts

i believe the stains are actually semi burn marks. If you are drying your whites try a lower heat setting. i had this problem with my kenmore dryer before too. Got bad especially with towels. Make sure your vent is not clogged and your filter is cleaned regularly to let the heat flow better. should help.

Trailer Wiring Cheat Sheet

Hello all,

For those of you that have or occasionally borrow trailers and look at the wiring plugs with disdain (I mean face it they don't make sense, ground is white, +12vdc is black, etc), this is for you.

The following are the accepted standards for different trailer types.
The different plugs and connectors used are marked with either a number or letters. Having the functions of each in advance can save a lot of trial and error when troubleshooting..

Plug Types/Application
7 Way - RV Trailers, Horse and Utility Trailers
6 Way - Horse, Stock and Utility
4 Way - Utility Trailers

Columns are: Color, Function, Mark on the plug.

Seven wire Trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:

White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Yellow = Left turn/Brake - 5
Green = Right turn Brake - 6
Orange or Purple (not both) = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Recreational Vehicle:
White = Ground - 1
Blue = Electric Brakes - 2
Green = Tail and clearance lights - 3
Black = Battery, aux power - 4
Red = Left turn/Brake - 5
Brown = Right turn Brake - 6
Yellow = Auxilliary or Reverse - 7

Six wire trailer plugs:

Horse, stock or utility trailers:
White = Ground - GD
Yellow = Left turn/Brake -LT
Green = Right turn Brake -RT
Brown = Tail and clearance lights - TM
Red or Black (not both) = Battery, aux power - A
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Recreational Vehicle: (color, use, plug mark)
White = Ground - GD
Brown = Right turn Brake - RT
Green = Tail and clearance lights -TM
Black = Battery, aux power - A
Red = Left turn/Brake - LT
Blue = Electric Brakes - S

Four wire plugs:
White = Ground
Yellow = Left turn/Brake
Green = Right turn Brake
Brown = Tail and clearance lights

Ground should be 10ga.
Others 14 ga

Best regards

What causes the yellowish hue in the centre of the screen

There are several different types of projection sets: some use 3 picture tubes, red,green,blue--if this kind of set is what you have the coolant used in the blue tube is bad-----this type of problem leaves red and green which = yellow.

Most common in Samsung, Philips, Magnavox type sets.

If it is a newer set without picture tubes (a dlp style set) yellow in the middle of the screen would denote a damaged optical light engine.

Let me know brand, model number, date made----all are on back of set.

I have a small issue with my brand new Samsung PN58B650 plasma TV. When I turn on the TV for the first time during the day, the picture appears but the colors are mostly pink, green, and yellow. ...

Take it back!!!

This is a bad sign of more issues trust me after 15 years in the biz. If you got a chance take it back and stay away from that line

Screen is green

You might have a faulty HDMI cable--I just had this same problem: audio was fine, but TV was green-screened. I tried everything, finally opting for last-generation multi-colored cables (one double-ended yellow, white, and red, and another blue, green, and red). Believe it or not, this solved the problem. Resetting the TV is another option--use your original TV remote and look for Reset under the menu options.
