Sounds like you Switching IC has failed. This is becoming a common problem with this type of TV's. This IC is identified on the board as IC831S (STR-X6456). The chip cost about $24.

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.

Samsung hc-r5245w no power

Hello Chac c,

The reason that you are getting a 'red light' is because your lamp is burned out. There is a panel on the back of the TV that gives you access to this lamp. You can remove it and check the part# to be sure then replace it. I did a quick search for you just based on the model# which you provided. You can see it here -

Hope this helps :)

I own a Sony T.V. model #KV36HS510, Serial # 9024184,Event# E36002407 and it"s aTrinitron brand name. Like the problems before no picture or sound, stand by light on front of unit flashes. When trying to turn it back on you can hear the power click, like it wants to turn on, but does not.
