Question about Samsung TXM3296HF 32" TV

HD distortion Problems

I have a TXM3296HF that distorts the picutre in 1080i. There is a vertical wave that distorts the picture to varying degrees depending on whats going on in the scene(possibly brightness related). It is very noticable at either vertical edge, particularly when I hit the channel guide on my cable since it doesn't fill the entire screen. Any ideas what this could be? It doesn't seem like anything the service menu can solve, but I'm open to suggestions.

My RCA F36648 36" TV has only the bottom half of my picture working. The top half has horizontal lines that distorte the picture. It looks like when you pull a rake through the sand the lines that are left...

You have vertical output problems.There is distortion at the top because of a faulty vert. output i.c. or a faulty electrolytic capacitor.It's possible there may be a problem at your yoke also.It needs a professional repair.

Partial tv picutre

By distortion do you mean that the top part is stretched? If so, you have bad caps in the vertical circuit. If you are comfortable working inside hte set and can solder, you can fix this yourself. Please post the model number and I can give you the details.

The picture is distorted

If the picture is distorted, you are most likely seeing pin amp errors. This is caused by failing parts in the pin amp sections. It is very common in these sets that some of the electrolytic capacitors in the pin amp and scan amplifier sections gives problems.

An experienced service tech can service this for you.

Black horizontal lines across bottom 1/3 of screen

This is due to vertical section failure. Change the vertical supply rectifier diode and supply filters. Then check zener diode leakage in pumpup circuit section. Also check any electrolytic capacitors leakage in vertical section. If it is old model tv change vertical height, vertical lenearity presets also. I hope given details useful to you.
