Sounds like a main digital processor board fault. In other words, its main board should be checked. This is a very skilled work, and a normal user can't do it with ease. Contact any expereicned service technician. Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact the nearest service centre.

Samsung SPP4251AX/XXA Is it fixable if so how?

In order to ensure this is not caused by the input device, try changing it to a DVD player and see. Also look for any loose contacts in RC jack, cable and connectors. If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

I'm geting purple picture a mixtures of good and bad

Hi it sounds like your sustain boards are going bad. The sustain boards are located on the left and right side of the tv. One or both might be defective.

Brand new haier hl32r1a has thin red line running down the right side of the picture close to the edge..its just mildly annoying...can we get rid of it somehow?

Get the unit replaced if it is brand new. This type of problem is caused by a fault in the LCD panel, not something you can repair yourself. One of the driver chips that runs the display has a shorted output line which creates the red line on the screen. Even though the problem is mildly annoying now it may get worse as time goes on and your warranty runs out.

Purple and white distorted fuzzy lines running up and down and side to side on tv

I just had my lower Y-buffer board swapped out to fix a problem similar to yours. After an hour and a half of on-time, the lower half of the screen would flicker on and off with the same appearance you mentioned. Changing out this particular board fixed it for me. However, since it has gone from top to bottom on your set, it may be more of a main board problem for you (that controls both upper and lower halves). Beyond this, I don't know any more. I am considering getting a service manual to gain more knowledge about the various PCBs in the unit so I can fix any future problems myself.
