Question about Samsung HLP5085W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Small dark area in corner of screen on Samsung HLP5085W

After moving the set, I noticed that in the lower left corner and dark triangular area appeared as if something was not sending the image to the screen correctly any longer. Almost as if the signal was crooked although 98% of the existing picture is fine- its really minimal. You can see the picture still, but its just a bit darker than the rest of the screen. Its such a small area (about 3" wide) but its still kinda annoying and I would like to know if I can just re-set something to fix it?

What you have is a lens that has been jarred loose or a plastic support melted. That's what it sounds like anyway. you may have a recall on this problem if it is common for your model. Not likely something you can fix yourself. if you are Gadget inclined you maybe able to though. check recalls first.

I have the samsung le32s.... it was given to me by a friend because of the damage on the screen, they said they tried to clean the screen and its left a faint black shadow, hardly noticable until playing...


The LCD display panel is bad. That cannot be repaired. The price of a new or possily a used one will cost as much as a new set. I suggest watching it till you can't stand it anymore then toss it out and look for a new set.

My screen has shrunk down to one long strip and the page is reduced I can't read anything?


Without seeing the page, I can only assume that it has reverted to a condensed version, liberating your workspace. If you look down at the lower right hand corner of the page, you will probably notice three small diagonal lines in the very corner... grab this area with your mouse (click and hold left mouse button depressed while stretching the page to the desired dimension.
Hope this helps.

When browsing page goes very small in top left hand corner


this happen when you shrink the browser page and close it without maximized it.
open the browser page, click and drag the page to the left top corner of the screen (top left corner of the browser page is at the top left corner of the screen).
move the mouse to the right lower corner of the browser (the arrow will change to 4 direction arrow). click, hold and drag the corner to the lower corner of the screen.
close the browser.
the browser page should be full screen when you reopen the page.

Red Bowed Lines / Red Hue


I tried the solution that was posted for this problem and it worked!
Just remove the Low front panel by removing the two bottom screws that are covered by two screw covers, then remove the second panel (black) by removing the 4 screws then you'll notice a module with 6 adjustment knobs, get a small screw driver, and with the t.v. on, being carefull , and with somebody accross the room looking at the screen begin with the lower left knob and turn left very slowly and ask the person across the room to let you know if the screen is better or not, after this I had to adjust the green as well so, I adjusted the next knob over to the left. Do this adjustment carefully and try to remenber the original position of the knobs in case you have to go back.f
Good Luck,
Californian.
