Re: my tv is actuall a SP43W6HPX/XEU

By getting into a "secret place" I'm assuming you mean the service menu and changed some numbers and settings, right? If so, there is no magic escape key on TV's unfortunately. The geometry and settings you changed will be challenging to say the least, even for a skilled technician. I learned many years ago to write down the values in the service menu before attempting any modifications - so it could be put back in the event that the changes made it worse... What I would suggest is calling a tech for an in-home visit. Explain that you inadvertently may have changed some settings in the service menu and need it adjusted. It will probably cost a one-hour service call, here we charge $60 an hour and if within the hour the tech can't get it back at least you'll know that you may have other underlying problems. However, if this is indeed what you've done a good tech should be able to re-adjust most of the parameters in the service menu in a one-hour service call.. Hope this helps. Bill

I have a samsung sp43w6hpx which started to mix colours and now it just goes to standby can anybody help please as its a good tv and i`d like it fixed

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as

3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

Yes you must go to menu and set the convergenge. It is easy. If it doesnt tune in or set to be ok you must get somebody to set convertions manualy thru service menu.

Hope it help

Try plugging the power cable out for the night. If it doesn't solve it there's probably a problem with the power supply that needs professional care. Good luck
