Samsung TSL2793HF - Slight Right Side Pincushion and Horz Line Bottom to Top Until the TV Warms up

SYMPTOMS: Rising Black Horizontal Area and Right Side slight Pincushioning (bowing) of the picture. Clears up after the TV warms up for about 12 to 20 minutes. DETAILED DESCRIPTION: The sound and all other functions are working fine. The picture has a Black Horizontal Area (I will call it "BHA") that spans the full width of the screen. That BHA appears from the bottom of the picture and then rises up the screen, until it gets about 75% high, and fades when it gets to three quarters (75%) from the bottom. That is, the top 25% of the picture is completely unaffected and always looks fine. The BHA looks like a completely blacked out area, surrounded top and bottom with finer and finer horizontal black lines. So it looks like the fine black horizontal lines are concentrated in the middle, and spread out more on the top and bottom of the BHA. This BHA is about 25% of the screen's height at first, and gets smaller and smaller as the tv warms up. The BHA rises to one quarter from the top of the picture and completely fades, and then rises again from the bottom and again fades and repeats this as the set warms and the BHA gets lighter until it disappears. THE BHA seems definitely related to the slight (1inch) black pincushion bowing in of the screen on the RIGHT HAND side of the picture. That black bowed area runs from about 3 inches from the bottom of the right hand side, to about 5 inches from the top of the right hand side. The BHA, when the tv is almost warmed up completely, seems to stop at the top of the bowed in area, so I think these are both symptoms of a single/related issue. The picture is showing all the time, while the BHA is moving up across the screen. Any ideas about this?

Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---

Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.

Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.

    Thanks for the helpful analysis. I have a perfect picture, after it is powered on for 12 minutes or so, as stated. Notice when the volume is turned up high, then a loud noise through the speakers will cause the picture to "improve", that is, for the blackened area to bounce with the sound to take up less of the screen, and then bounce back to its former size (analogous to "tapping" the TV case hard, I suppose). For now, I will live with it, because even the pincushion is very minor, almost unnoticeable, and only on one side. .

SOURCE: white horizontal lines at top of picture

Yes, definitely worth fixing. The problem lies in the vertical deflection voltage-doubler circuit. The usual fault is a single capacitor of 100uF/35V that has failed. It is normally connected to a rectifier diode right at the vertical IC. Replacing the capacitor (no more than USD4.00 in price) usually gets it working perfectly again. If you are finicky around technical work, then a reputable local repair shop in your locality should do it quickly for you and charge only labour.

sounds like bad capacitor in vertical circuit. It's not a hard fix if you know where to look. Repair shop should not have hard time repairing it.

You have a poor solder connection in the frame output stage. If you have a soldering iron, remove the back cover & look for an IC that will be attached to a metal plate that acts as a heatsink. Carefully re-solder the pin connections on this IC ensuring you dont leave any of the pins shorted together. If you spot any other connections around about this area also looking dry, then resolder them as well.

Hi,

All Plasma and LCD ts have boards that control vertical and horizontal output to their respective areas. They are connected to the screen by ribbon cables. If one of these boards fails all together, has a failed chip, a bad connection, or a bad ground somewhere it will result in a black line in the area of that board. A bad ribbon cable connection on the bottom will result in a vertical black bar though the screen. Many times resetting the connection will fix it, if the ribbon cable has been nicked there could be a severed connection. They an sometimes be fixed, but it is a pain. An yes I have done it, but the bar is gone. The same will happen if the chip that outputs to that area opens. The connectors are the first place to look paying close attention to the cable, they are extremely delicate so great care must be taken if you decide to tinker with em, the usually have lift locks that release them, Good luck in rectifying the problem.....
