Samsung HCN2446W -- Yellow/Greenish tint all over screen

I just bought a Samsung HCN2446W Projection 42" HDTV that was built in 2004. I bought it used for $200, today so it's 4 yrs.-old. It looked fine in the prevous owner's home, however once at MY house it has this yellowish-green tint all over the screen, particularly darkening at the corners. The picture is also pale. That's the only way I can describe it! I adjusted the color, tint, custom, name it, I tried adjusting it. What happened?

That model should be HCN4226W, right? Because the other don't come-up. Sounds like the mirror may have moved. It's mounted on the upper part of the back of the T.V. Should be flat against the back. Check that. Then see if all 3 tubes are lighting up. Also possable the fluid leaked out.....but not likely. These sets are fairly robust. Do you remember jarring it in the drive home?? Did you have it laying down when you moved it?

My 2004 samsung self focus bbe digital tv had a normal picture, but recently the screen started producing yellow images. Everything we watch is in yellow tint. The model number is HC-P4741W. If anyone can...

Check and make sure that you still have your red component cable hooked up and it is tight on both ends of cable. If cable is tight, try another cable to make sure the one you are using isn't bad. If you still have a yellow picture, stick your head in the unit and see if the red tube is lit. If it is not, you found your problem.

My son has just given me his tv but it has a green/yellow tint. It is about 2 1/2 yrs old any suggestions.

you will need to have the optical block/engine repaired or replaced. You are looking at $200 and more to have it fixed or replaced.
