Color rings on hdtv

I have a Samsung HD 36" X-P3264 and instead of a regular picture, it now has rings of color (red, green, and purple) making the picture colors now look like a bullseye. the picture is also off center. you can still see the screen in black and white with the bullseye colors in it. prior to the rings appearing, it was moved 4 feet. the tv was on a stand that was slid the four feet and was not tipped or tilted. can anyone help? i would like to know what is wrong with it, what it would take to fix it, and a cost estimate if i take it to the shop. Thanks, Mike

Re: color rings on hdtv

Sounds like a CRT (picture tube) that did suffer a bit of a blow to it. The rings are caused by the thin sheet of steel inside of the CRT called a shadow mask being warped. The other cause for this is the internal degauser in the TV comming on and staying on too long causing damage to the CRT. Either way the CRT is over $400 plus you will need to find out what caused the issue and repair that first.

I have sound but the picture is purple and will not adjust with the remote or manually with the buttons on the tv what can I do to fix this on the philips 36pt41b129

The unit has lost its green video information. This can be a picture tube or a green drive problem. The only colors you are getting are red and blue thus the purple picture. All picture tubes have red, green and blue guns to make all the colors needed for a normal picture. It will take some troubleshooting to determine whether it is a drive problem or the picture tube itself. Have a repair shop check it out for you. A 36" TV is worth a check out fee. Thanks for using Fixya. Let me know how it goes.

Intermitant color bursts of red, green, purple


for the color problem,most likely you do have problem with loose contact of components from C-board ( small board connected at the back of CRT "picture tube" which drives every color and size of the screen)if you have knowledge with soldering electronic component parts, resolder this board and also check main board for possible loose contact.

HDTV problem

You should test the TV set using a known good source such as a DVD player with RGB outputs to drive the set. If it is good, then this rules out the TV set from being at fault.

From experience, many times I found compatiblity issues between computers and TV sets. The computer's resolution and refresh rate must be set exactly to the TV's capability.

Chuck the TV - probably It depends on the repair facilities available where you live. In big urban areas the cost of staffing a repair shop is such it can cost nearly as much per hour just to look at an item is it does to buy the next one-plus you get all the latest features.
