Question about Samsung TXE2546 25" TV

1 Answer

An oval-shaped rainbow-like colour pattern shows first, then, in a few minutes, picture starts to appear from the bottom and gradually extends towards the top thought never completely reach to top edge. When the picture is below the bottom edge, the TV usually shuts off. Flickering occurs all the times. Sounds work OK. The model of the TV is: Samsung TXE2546 Couldn't find anything outside of the TV to adjust verticle or horizontal position. Thanks for your help in advance!

Re: An oval-shaped rainbow-like colour pattern shows...

It May be due to one of several things. You could have some bad filter capacitors that are allowing electrical "noise" to disrupt the video, or there could be a bad solder connection or crack in the circuit board allowing a ground to "float", or there could be a problem in the Degaussing circuit, although that would be my last guess. I don't recall ever having that particular problem with any sets in my shop.

Bullseye rainbow of colors

This is either a purity fault which is caused by magnetism affecting the screen. You would need to call a service engineer to remedy this as a special tool is required called a de-gauss coil. However there is also the posssibility that it could also be a fault with the shadowmask which is caused by the CRT itself, if this is the case then the CRT will need replaced & this would probably not be economical.

Colourful picture

Discoloration of this sort is caused by magnetism. All CRT TVs (like yours) have a de-gaussing coil around the picture tube that de-magnetizes the screen (more specifically the shadow mask) every time you turn it on. It is likely that the circuit that controls this coil is at fault. There is probably a cold solder joint where it connects to the main circuit board.

The other scenario is that someone (small child generally) has run a magnetic object very near to the screen, magnetizing the shadow mask (inside the picture tube) and causing a rainbow effect. This is less likely if the rainbow effect is a nice even circular shape. Generally if it's been magnetized by a magnet as described the discolored areas will appear blotchy.

In short, if you have some electronics skills, get in there with your soldering iron and touch up the connections to the de-gaussing coil. If not, find someone who does.

Bad color

If it is a glass crt then you need to have the set demagnatized with a demagnatizing coil. All tv shops have one. This is worth fixing and usually at the price of a service call.
