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!

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.

Rainbow e2 system. Will not power up

the water basin has a safety on it so the unit cannot run without it. if you look on the bottom of the rainbow you can see a small oval shaped space that you can depress just to test and see if it still runs it will only run with this depressed.

Fuzzy picture, oval shaped, scrolling up slowly

I would start by checking the large filter capacitors in the power supply. I can't be sure since I'm not seeing the set, but it sounds like you're describing AC ripple. In a 20-year-old set, some of those electrolytics will be drying out. A few replacements may take care of the trouble for you.

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.
