Question about Samsung HL-R4266W 42" HDTV-Ready Projection Television

1 Answer

Fading picture that looks dark and dull on a 42" Samsung DLP tv.

Our 42" Samsung DLP tv is about 3 yrs. old and in the last several weeks the colors look faded and the picture is dull. In dark shots, you can barely see what's going on. Can anyone help?

The screen is dark, the picture is not as bright as it was last week. TV is about 4.5 years old. Does a bulb need to be replaced?


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 www.TvRepairKits.com
