Question about Samsung HLN467W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Color went to grayish green, dull picture.

The color on my HLN467W Samsung went to a grayish green "especially in flesh tones". Picture is still very sharp other than color. Also, I don't have any led's that remain lit after the lamp comes on, should I ? The set is 4 years old and had warranty issues in the beginning so they replaced a major part already that was causing the set to re-fire the lamp over and over, but never come on. I have never replaced the lamp, could this affect the color ? I hate to spend $140 bucks on a lamp and not fix the problem. Thanks, Marty.

It ended up being one of the connectors on the composite cable. I did not know that the different colors came through separate cables. I do now, Thanks.

The color went green all of a sudden on my 51F500, and the autofocus won't fix it.


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Samsung HLP4663w. After replacing the Ballast, Bulb and Color Wheel (color wheel came without the CCA values and the Actuator and Index delay values) we still have the same color and picture problems. Do...


if the picture is blue green there is a jumper to be removed on the dmd board on connector cn810--the index delay should be between 40 and 50 for optimum color --or adjusted for best flesh tone also in the options the cw setting should be set for cw2

No color hues


Have you tried more than 1 source? If this only happens with 1 source- if you're using component cables (green, blue, red) then make sure there is nothing wrong with it. Another thing that can cause this, is a component (RGB) device being plugged into a composite a/v input (yellow white and red).
If this fails, or if the problem is with all sources, the TV is the problem and probably won't be easy to diagnose or repair yourself.. I'd call the manufacturer if this is the case.

Check to make sure the green is lit up! You will need to remove back and look inside to tell.
