If you have the proper tools and understand how the picussion circuits work then you can get a maunal and troubleshoot the TV set, but this pincussion circuit is a dangerous place to be as there is alot of high voltage in this circuit. if you do not know about these solid state circuits, play it safe and get a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck

I have replaced a capacitor, transitor, and a diode as was described to me by repair world this is on the deflection board, now it turns on and works but it has an hour glass shape to the picture the side...


thats a pin cushion problem. I would check for more bad caps on the deflection board or open resistor. Sounds like you had an issue with the retrace cap CL031 and the HOT transformer and possibly the DL030 often if they fail bad enough the circuit board can actually burn through and that arc can travel and cause other items to fail. You may end up having to replace the deflection board to fully fix the issue of pin cushion that your experiencing now.

Samsung 42 inch rear projection not working


If you have no prior experience repairing TV sets, I wouldn't recommend opening it up under any circumstances. There are voltages inside that can kill, even when unplugged.

Your safest bet would be to go with a repair guy. Shop around for various prices. In the end you will have to weigh the cost of repair against a new set and decide..
