Samsung TXN3275HF 32" tv - purple picture

Hi, we have about a 5 year old Samsung TXN3275HF 32' HDTV 1080i. The other day while t.v. was on - picture was perfect -- suddenly the picture flashed - losing all green and yellow hues. I turned the t.v. off for about 10-15 minutes, turned it back on and all was normal - only for another 15 minutes. Same scenario - turned it off, let it cool, back on - all ok. This continued throughout the day until eventually, no greens/yellows ever came back. When I accessed the color panel to adjust colors, greens/yellows are not even an option - only reds/purple. The entire picture has an all over purple hue. When I use it in the standard 4x3 size, the stripes on the sides are purple instead of grey. Also we have tried using it on antanae and the colors are the same, so I know it isn't the connection cords coming from the Satellite. Other t.v.s in the house are fine - it's just this one. Help!! Is it time to chuck the t.v. for a lightweight LCD or is it worth getting fixed? Thanks for your help. Laura

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.

Before I threw the TV away, I opened it up and saw a blown fuse near the power cable connection.

I just replaced the tiny fuse in the same TV. It's a 250-Volt 5-Amps fuse. Make sure you get this exact fuse. Otherwise, it will blow again. Now, the TV's working fine.

Why is there sound but no picture?

According to the owner's manual page 2.7 (and this is an OLD [by HDTV standards] set), the TV can only handle input resolutions of 480p or 1080i on the composite inputs. Most HDTV programming today is 720p with some 1080i and 1080p on certain channels (like some Discovery shows about nature). It is possible that your set will not process the 720p signals being sent.

Samsung TXN3275HF 32" TV wont

after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to CRT TUBE - TV TUBE ) becomes weak - then 1 of the indication is ...'' grrrrrr '' like noise comes ---no picture , no sound - (in case if picture & audio comes also it won't stay for much time) that noise is from EHT solution is EHT ( also called as flyback transformer ) should be replaced....... {{ few details about EHT---- its size will be around 3inch X 2inch X 2inch ---it will have 2 or 3 knobs to adjust focus , brightness ------ at bottom around 10 pins will be there ------- from EHT 1 thick red colour cable goes to CRT TUBE --------- on EHT its part number will be there }} -------- so if user is a technical person having idea about components ( resistors, transistors, diodes, etc ) , having tools like multimeter ( to check components) , soldering iron, soldering lead, flux, desoldering wig ( for removing components), etc also little experience in servicing field( compulsory) ----------------- then user can remove EHT from main board ---- take to electronic shop ----- buy same type EHT --------- fix to mainboard ( knobs on EHT should be adjusted according to picture --- after switching TV --- this adjustment is very important ) ----------iam from bangalore (09986222774, ----- here EHT's price will be around Rs 250 ( US $ 6 ) & for my customers (in bangalore) i will take another Rs 500 (US $ 11) as sevice charge......i don't have any idea about EHT ' s price & service charge in your place.........since it is very risky job i suggest to contact TV service engineer ------- because they are highly experienced & can fix this component very easily. ------------ [[ sometimes along with EHT another component called transistor ( big in size - situated close to EHT - it will have 3pins - its size will be 1inch X 1/2 inch X 1/2 cm --approximately ---- black in colour ----- fixed to aluminium metal ) --- will also gets deffective --- so this component also should be checked ]]

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.

Hi kmb0516.
Depends how old the set is, if it is more than 5 years old, time to tell it goodbye, if it is less, might be worth fixing.

I believe the problem is in the vertical output section, it sounds like the picture has shrunk.

Hope this helps, Greg.
