Colors out of Whack on HD input 4 only

Recently all of our colors went out of whack all of a sudden on 3 and input 4. On DVR recording and DVD's too. So we called the TV repair man - he fixed it brought it back - not fixed - called him again - fixed it brought it back - not fixed. Called the repair man - went to the shop to verify it worked - looked fine but it was not hooked up to HD -- brought it home - it worked well on 3, DVD's and the DVR recordings BUT when you place the TV on input 4 with HD the colors are whacked out again. Removed the HD cables and everything is fine on input 4 - replace the cables and its whacked again. I changed cable boxes but not the cables. Hooked up the new cable box - colors whacked out again only on input 4 with HD. Could it be the HD cables or is there something still wrong with the TV.

I have 3 green lights clicking in the back of my tv and the tv wont come on can you please give me some assistence on what the problem might be

How long have you owned it?

When the bulb went out on mine it did something like that.( I have been through 3 bulbs now on my projector)

Or maybe you don't have the inputs in right. Try using the input/source button on the remote or unit to switch and that might get it tuned in to what inputs you have. BTW turn all your input sources... VCR, DVD, DTV, cable box...etc ON before you do that.

Another thought -- you mention 'clicking'... does it sound like clicking or perhaps a little more electrical like sparking. When sets go bad they have built "spark gaps" just like a spark plug and when they produce too much voltage it arcs across these in order to discharge the power without harming the set.

Otherwise I'd call where you bought it. Or a store that sells them.. Even decent repair shops will often give you good advice knowing you might become a customer anyway -- my central air recently went out and I called and made an appt and the guy gave me some ideas to check over... it was the fourth fuse (I only saw 2 at first) and it probably saved me 200+ on a service call.

you most likely need to replace the convergence ICs. If you are lucky, they may have unsoldered pin connections at the PCB, you can try re-soldering those loose pins. What usually happens is that because of the heat generated, the pins have become detached at the IC also, thus the need to replace the ICs. Some of these have either fuses or resistors to the ICs that have also opened & will need replaced also.

Have Samsung HLN567W and recently started having

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence

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 Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

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

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant 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

You need to run autoconvergence in the menu screen. If it doesn't work, you may have to clean the lenses.

you'll have to rescan or run the auto-program feature in the tv main menu, and if you still have the original remote transmitter you can select video1 or vid2 depending on which input is being used for the dvd player and the dvd recorder.

Convergence problem ,Help Please

Something is not right here. Is there any possibility that you can get the circuit designation (Rxxx) of the resistors that were "incorrect"? I am not aware of anything like this that can cause the "memory to be erased". The only memory in that area would be the factory convergence settings which can be modified from the service menu. Please try to supply the resistor IDs and I'll check on this.
