Question about Samsung HL-S5679W 56" HDTV

1 Answer

My problem is that I can only see half the screen.

I've had this tv fixed 3 times already for the clicking, no picture problem (out of warranty). This tv is less than 2 years old, very disappointed with Samsung service. My problem now, is that I can only see half the screen. The other side has a pattern design. Is there a reset on the unit that may solve this issue? I'm tired of spending so much money to fix this tv. Samsung should own up to the issues on this blog and help out their customers. Never had this problem in 7 yrs with my 46 inch Sony. Samsung, do the right thing!

How to fix my sony tv?


When a TV is defect, there is no such thing as a magic word over the internet that can heal it. For defects, you really must visit a repair store, or contact Sony, when it still is under warranty.

46in Vizio LCD HDTV distorted black picture when tv is turned on


Hi There are three things that can cause this problem. Your lcd screen, t-con board or the signal board. Most likelly in your case since you say it's only half the screen it's going to be your t-con board. You can try removing it and cleaning all the contacts and replacing it see if that helps. If that doesn't help then replace it. If that does not solve it then it's going to be your screen.

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Picture Problems On 50 Inch Philips Plasma


You plasma still under manufacturers warranty. Most electronic devices have one year warranty.
The failure in your TV can only be corrected by repairing it.
I would suggest to call philips and ask them to find you an authorized repair center near you to get your TV fix under their warranty.

TV Problem


No. Are the lines white or black? Does the picture look distorted at the top? Is there a chance it is still under warranty? It sounds like a problem in the vertical retrace circuit. Probably a capacitor near an IC that's used for timing. You shouldn't be having this issue already. A tech should be able to see a distorted waveform in the vertical section. Hope this helps.
