Question about Samsung HCM4215W 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue "shadows" on my picture?

So I just picked up a 42" Samsung rear projection HD tv
(Model #: HCM4215W).

When I get it home and plug it in, it has blue hues and tints throughout every picture/channel. I've asked a few low voltage techs I know and they had guessed that one of the 3 "bulbs" was possibly shot?

What I'd really like to know is what the problem is most likely to be, and if I (a kid with no tv repair experience) would have a chance of fixing it himself?

thanks in advance for the input!

When the screen goes blank, hit any remote function that will show up on the screen-like volume bar. If the display is missing as well, then you have a tv problem. If the volume display is there when the tv picture is not, you may require a software upgrade.

It probably is see if you can align the convergence manually or auto if available, you can order just the convergence ic's or the convergence amp board, whichever you prefer. check pricing and availability. also check Blue crt for faded picture, usually dirty crt fluid, makes picture dark and discoloured. If it is you may need to replace the blue crt also. this gets a little expensive, again check pricing hope this gets you started RFT
