Question about Ktv 13TEC 13" TV

1 Answer

Color I have very little color on the set. It was working fine one day and the next day I turned it on, as I was watching it just faded away. It's grayed scaled, but on color to speak of. I have no schematic nor a service manual. The channel numbers are in green and red when switch to a new channel. All other functions seem to work fine. Any help?

Other than adjusting the color level, either with on screen controls, or a control on the back of the set, there is not much you can do yourself. Problem points to the color processing circuitry, which is not user servicable. Note that hazardous voltages are present inside, so tampering is not recommended.

Color fades at bottom of screen


Although it is possible that your monitor is defect, you should first run a monitor test to see if you just need to adjust some of the settings. Go to this webpage and just follow the instructions.
The test are done best in full screen mode (F11 in most browsers).

Do you have any sources of magnetic fields next to the monitor (speakers, halogen lights, sometimes even a cordless phone can cause distortion).

If you can, connect this monitor to another computer and see if the problem persists. This way you eliminate any hardware related issues (cable, video card).

If you have any more questions (also regarding the results) come back here and leave a comment. I will check back and see what else we can do.

Loud Humming Noise


Samsung is notorious for having the motor on the color wheel burn out. If the color on the tv starts to fade or shift tones when the rev'ing or noise is happening then you'll know its the color wheel. There are only two moving parts in this set, the color wheel and the fans. If you're smelling something, it could be either. Take the back off the set and put a piece of tape on the lamp door switch and turn the set on. Try to pinpoint the source of the noise. If its a fan, no big deal, Radio shack should have a replacement. If it sounds like its comming from under the set, dig a little deeper and try unhooking the color wheel motor, not as easy as I am making it sound but either way the fan is about $20 to fix and the color wheel is about $100. Sure beats a $400 tech bill. If you get stuck, comment back and I'll send pictures of the dismantle.

Samsung dlp


HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?

Toshiba 65hx81 65" Rear Projection tv. black & white color/green


Yep, your problem is a relatively easy one to repair if you know how to solder. You better repair it before it blows the fuse though. There are two capacitors in the main power supply that are coming loose and need to be re soldered. There is a Toshiba service bulletin about it. They are marked C809 and C810 on the main power supply board. Good Luck

Color fades in and out of picture


The first thing I would check is the antenna or cable connection into the set. When an analog TV signal is weak, the first thing to go is the color, then the picture, then the sound. If you have another TV, connect it to the very same cable or antenna connection and see if it fails the same way, too. Make sure you just disconnect the cable end right where it goes into the failing TV and connect it to the other TV - don't disconnect the antenna cable from the wall for this check. If the second set does not fail, gently pull on the antenna wire - not too hard, you just want to put a little tension on it to see if it makes the color cut out. Reconnect the first one and try again. If it's fine now, the connection was loose. If not, it has a tuner problem that must be repaired. Also, when you look at the end of a TV connector, the center wire should stick out just a little bit, like in the attached photo. If it doesn't stick out as bit, it won't make good contact, and will result in a weak signal. I appreciate your rating if you find this helpful.
