Question about Samsung HCN473W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung hl-r5667l I have a purple haze over the top half(started at 1/3) of my screen. It will disappear occasionally if I unplug the TV. It will disappear on occasion if I give the top of the set a "tap". Sometimes it stays away for hours but most of the time just a few minutes. Some days it's thick(annoying viewing the picture beneath) some days so "thin" you can only see it when the picture being displayed is a certain color. Doesn't seem to be as "visable" on Hi-Def channels. Thanks

Vizio TV has purple haze and colored stripes on the sides of the picture.

You possibly have a failing hi-voltage module or fly-back transformer going bad. If it has a fly-back transformer, It's not worth the trouble. Some repair shops will sell you a module. Call a repair shop for help.

Samsung tv has line of purple haze at top of the screen. Tv is only 6 months old but is usually on so it gets slot of use. Any ideas on how to fix?

This TV should still be under warranty and you should contact the retailer first. It does not sound like a user-repairable fault.

Unplug it and plug it in again. This worked for me and I have a very similar problem occasionally. Turning the power off and on with the remote will not work.
