I recently bought this 25inch TV with a DVD/VCR combo (side by side, not stacked) and recently had to fish out a tape, well, after fishing it out, non-violently, the colors became horribly distorted... like when I used to hold a powerful magnet to the screen and warp the colors for a few hours, this however has gone on for days. I can't think of how this could have happened, because there aren't any magnets in this house powerful enough to do that, and the speaker magnets in the tv just don't seem to have the strength to do this.
The view is like looking at the tv with bad colors in the center (sorta circular in shape), and the corners are darkened in, you can still see detail, but it's not great. I've tried fixing the colors with very weak refrigerator magnets, and at about an inch, they do fix the local colors, but the fix doesn't stay. Do I need a more powerful magnet or should I try and return it? Thanks in advance.

Not enough information for a good reply. Are you sure your tv is set to the correct mode or channel for vcr? Make sure both devices are on, your dvd/vcr playing if you can, and see if the tv on channel 3, channel 4 or channel 91 show that dvd/tape. Otherwise, try checking your remote control, MENU button and look for device options, or INPUT options, on the main menu.
is there a cable/ satellite converter box involved? yes...line in from wall to converter box, line out of box to line in dvd / vcr and line out of dvd / vcr to the samsung note the dvd / vcr and samsung must be tune the ch 3....ok no box is involved...the dvd / vcr still needs to be tune to ch 3, (the ch is changed from the tv) dvd/ vcr line out should go to tv in.............the antenna/cable is plugged to dvd line in
The channel is almost always 3 or 4. Be sure you have the VCR connections correct. Just hook up the TV and VCR alone to start with and try both the VCR and DVD. Also the output of the VCR should show a blue screen.
make a degosing coil or try to look for a website how to make it in the phillipine we only make it coz we can't buy or its not available in the marker ok thanks that is the only solution you can do k
about akai tv may be it just coldsolder in crt socket try to solder it thanks inform me
You trying to put the DVD/VCR combo between the cable box and the TV? OK, cable out goes to vcr in, vcr out goes to tv, I think you got that. Now there should be a tv/vcr button on the vcr/dvd, you need to press that when the unit is on. Also, make sure you are on the correct input on both the vcr and the tv, usually video 1 or AUX and choose line in or L1 on the vcr/dvd. If the tv/vcr button is toggled, itll completely bypass the vcr/dvd player.
Sounds as if something got bent in the loading mechanism when you freed the stuck tape. Careful examination of the loading operation with the cover off may reveal the problem, but you may require a service shop, as there are hazardous voltages present inside, even when switched off.
What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming.
The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine.
