Question about Samsung HP-S4253 Television

Color bleed thru problems

I've got a 40 inch Samsung Plasma TV model # HP-S4253. I bought it Jan 07. When it's been on about an hour, a bluish/purplish color bleed thru appears along the bottom and right side. It only shows up on white areas or light colored areas (i.e. in text, faces, yard lines on football fields). I've heard that this is fairly common and can be fixed by an adjustment of some kind. Do you have any information that I can use. My TV is still in warrenty but there are no service centers near where I live. Thanks

Re: Color bleed thru problems

I finally was able to get my TV to a service center and it is an adjustment that they have to make. My TV has been returned and is much better but still shows some blue. They are going to pick it up and try again next week. I'll let you know the final outcome. P.S. It was covered on my warrenty.

Re: Color bleed thru problems

This set only has a 12 month parts and labor warranty so you need to call 1 800 samsung or the dealer you bought it from..the problem with adjusting the v_set and v_scan voltages is it may last for 6 months and then you would still need a new plasma panel..better to have a samsung authorized tech check it

Blue Bleeding on Plasma Screen

I don't really know this model of Tv. but i know this model of
Samsung panel. If u remove the back cover of the tv and look at the power supply at the left and top left you will need to make voltage adjustments. At the top right of the plasma panel you will see a sticker with voltage for adjust the VS VE VSET on the power supply 110 to 100, 205 to 190 and 195 to 188. And this should clear up the blue rash on screen.
