Question about Sony KP-57WS500 57" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Samsung HCR4755W Dark colors appear red on HD content only

I have a Samsung rear projection TV:
Chassis : P62A(N)_Benhur-3
Model : HCR4755WX/XAA (HC-R4755W)

When viewing HD content from any source using the component inputs, dark colors are replaced by red. Mid-range colors, however seem to appear as intended.  SD content looks fine and does not suffer from any color issues.

I have posted pictures of the problem at:

Any help is appreciated!
Thank you

While the root of the problem is likely the picture tubes aging, I'm sure it would benefit from a cleaning and adjusting. After the dust is cleaned from the lenses, the screen controls could likely be lowered to get the blacks you desire. An experienced tech would be able to do this for you.

Depending how long you have owned it and if a Lamp was ever replaced, it probably needs to be replaced. You can check with SONY at
1800-222-SONY and see if they could sell and send you one.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Sony 51" Rear Projection TV is blurry with colored ghost images

Thats caused by a convergence failure. The Sony type 1 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually correct that issue the kit contains the components and the CD with repair instructions so you can repair yourself.

I have a phillip magnavox big screen tv it works fine but the color is too dark i think i need a picture tube


If its the one indicated here or one like it :

The picture tube type (CRT) rear projection tubes require annual cleaning.

With set off and back removed locate the three large black lens atop the chassis--hard to miss them.

The are the red, green, and blue tubes and are your light source for the picture---------if dark and they are dirty or dusty the picture will be darker and not as sharp or clear as it once was..

spray some glass cleaner on a paper towel and wipe them clean.

Do not touch anything else in set and do it with set unplugged.

put back cover on and see if picture is noticeably improved; if so do it once a year or more if in a dusty place.

Let me know if you have questions.

Our Samsung tv will not turn on/power on. It sounds like it starts to power on, the light blinks twice then you hear something, the light stays on solid after that. This model usually has an audible tone...


I would suggest two things you need to examine :

First remove and examine the lamp to make sure it is not shattered or fractured.

Second examine the color wheel that faces the lamp (see attached photo) and if you had a fan like sound or high pitched whine before that points to the color wheel.

The color wheel is a do it your self replacement (I can help) and takes less than a hour.


Let me know what you have tried and if the lamp or color wheel are intact.

Digital blocks appear


The HD-ILA's do not handle dark content well, it's a known problem. As far as intermittent digital blocks while viewing regular content it may be coming from your sat/cable company or you may have a problem with the digital board. I've had a few of these go bad.
