Question about Samsung HCN436W 43" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Green Picture Hi. I have had the Samsung HCN436W for a couple of years now and it's been agreat tv, but recently the picture started to flicker green. The whole picture would look like it was in black and white but with a green tint, but now the picture doesnt just flicker, it is always green. I have checked the red, blue and green bulbs through the viewing pannel at the back and they are all working. Any help on this would be a great! Thanks. Craig.

Re: Green Picture

It's not missing blue. you can see that from the menu. The menu shows blue. I had this problem a year ago and the samsung technician showed me a solution with the remote control. Something taking the battery out and resetting. I'm trying to find it now.

Re: Green Picture

I guess it's missing blue. Even if you see the blue crt working it's not enough and focalised. replace the coolant in it and also check if you have some coolant leak on the crt pcb.

Line pink and green

this would definitely won't be the lamp, the issue is either with you video board or the dmd board, go to the menu and if that line still shows up on the menu, the issue will be with your dmd board, on the contrary the issue would be with your digital video board

Loose Connection for the Green Signal?

Well, first of all, isn't there a warranty on the repair?
It still could be a bad solder connection somewhere but I have seen what is called a G2 / Focus block go bad causing your symptoms.

Working around those tubes is not recommended unless you know what you're doing. You can really mess up the picture or worse, break a tube.

try disconnecting the convergence board and see if it will turn on without this board connected - if it turns on then you likely needs to fix or replace the convergence board

Rear Projection TV Picture is all green with Horizontal Lines

It looks like you started out with an intermittent solder connection which may have been fairly easy to find early on. Now, unless a technican can make it come and go while tapping on the circuit board and repair the connection, it may be a very expensive shop repair.
