Question about Samsung HCN4226W 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Ghost / Overlapping Image

My TV has developed a ghost image or two overlapping images about 2 inches apart on the screen.  It almost appears as if there are two images projected on the screen which are supposed to be aligned together, but are off.  When I turn on the TV, for the first few minutes, the TV cycles between good picture quality to the overlapping images for a few times and then decides to settle on the bad (overlapping) image.

    Actually, after comparing it with image on another TV, I find that the colors are separated.  The ghost image is mostly red, but the main image is more green than it should be.

After replacing bulb in my Sony Wega DLP a Starburst image is appearring on screen

Sounds like you have image retention better known as burn in. If this is the case then you need a new light engine. Which means if you can't live the bad screen buy a new tv. Light engine cost a lot of money to replace.

Noise and overlapping 'ghost image' on photos

It sounds like something causing the print head to **** e.g. lack of lubrication on the track, missing teeth form the drive belt etc. Use MS Word (or something) to draw a black, magenta, cyan and yellow square, then drag the four squares so they completely overlap. Then lift up the printer top cover and print it. Watch the print head and see if you can identify the cause of the misalignment. Let me know what happens, or if you don't quite understand what I'm asking, come back at me.

Sounds like the transfer roller or the fuser unit may be faulty. Look at the fuser to see if the roller surfaces are dirty. If so, replace the fuser.

Red-striped ghost images.

when you leave your TV (no matter what kind) and you leave it for long periods of time on a static image or something.. the image tends to burn in to the screen... so changing the glass would be a way to fix it.... the problem is that that kind of repairmen is more expensive and difficult than buying a new set...
