Question about Samsung HL-R4266W 42" HDTV-Ready Projection Television

Open Question

42 Inch HLR4266wx/xaa DLP - Samsung - Screen jumpy and fuzzy

Screen started to go Jumpy and fuzzy as if you could see the lines being ran accross the screen. Jumbled up like distorted digital signal. TV stopped turning on fully. LAMP led on power button was blinking - was not getting audible that tv was turning on. Then would shut off and standby/temp red LED would light.

Turned off TV for 12 hours and it came back on - gave audible and slowly all of the above happened again in about 2 minutes time. Unplugged.

    I have close to the same problem. Check your "Picture in picture" is the little picture clear? Mine is, as is my TV Guide option. I have a 80% hit ratio by quickly unplugging and then re-plugging in the TV when it is on and "fuzzy".

    Sure would like to know why it's doing this??!!

    Check the other source Inputs. Does the DVD input also act this way? Use the Menu key on your remote. Does your On-Screen Menu also appear "fuzzy"?

SOURCE: samsung DLP TV won't turn on

This sounds to me like one of two possibilities. First, check your ballast. If you're going through bulbs faster than you think you ought to be, you may have a ballast that is overloading. Its the 3" x 8" circuit board that connects directly to the bulb. They are plentiful and often cheap. Thats what I'd try first. If that doesnt' do it, I would invest in a new power supply board. That the board that the tv power cable hooks directly in to. This should give you a start, Comment back if you still need further help. Good luck.

Check the capacitors on the power supply first. If any have domed tops or signs of leakage, replace them. I had two go bad on mine. Call electronics parts supply stores first as these are not your average capacitors.

It would be easy to advice something if you can kindly post an image. But for the time being it seems like a problem with:

1) Either your graphics driver

2) Falsified Screen

3) Bad Setting of O/S.
