Sounds like the same problem that has occured in the Hitachi Ultravision projection TVs and nearly every other brand of TV with a light engine.. Is it a blue blob in the middle or a shadow across the top of the screen? If so, the light engine is bad. If you are handy you can do it yourself in about an hour or two. If not, you'll have to take it to a repair shop. The cost will be about $400 for the engine and another $200 or so for the labor.....I'm estimating. Hitachi knew the light engines were bad in their TVs so even if it is out of warranty they provide the part for free so long as you bring it to an authorized repair facility. Call Samsung and see what they say and search the internet for Samsung light engine problems.

It sounds like a convergence issue. Are you able to try the convergence built into the tv? If that doesn't work you will need to have a professional come out and align the color guns. Also it is always possible there is a more serious problem with internal components. If you need help finding a qualified repair tech. in your area let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

Sp 55w3hf Convergence


Some TVs do use three ICs, one for each colour. These ICs are likely all identical. There could be fuses blown. Fuses can look just like resistors. A manual points them out or they are shown on the board as F101, or ICP 101 or CP101 or the like. Fuses usually affect ALL the colours at once, so I am looking for the third IC.

At this point it appears that your main board is probably bad. You most likely have a 5 volt scource going to the main board but its not powering up the set. The main board is part number BN94-00796A.
You might want to have a technician look at the TV to verify this as the issue before purchasing it. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

The convergence IC's are definitely bad. This is not something you can fix yourself unless you know how to solder and are technically inclined.

try replacing the convergence ICs and also check the resistors that power them. This is a common fault with all projection TVs.

Shadow


Nice description. Is the picture still square or does it have like an hourglass shape to it? If so, one of the convergence amps has failed (common problem) and needs replacing as well probably the fuse resistors feeding power to it. Probably a job for a pro as it needs to be reconverged afterwards. Can give you DIY instructions if you are OK at soldering.
Is the picture foggy as well? Have him replace the crt fluid while he's in there. How old is this TV?
