Question about Samsung HL-R5678W 56" Television

1 Answer

Purple-tinted transparent line

I am getting a purple-tinted, transparent line about two inches wide on the left side of my screen when I turn on the TV. This used to go away completely after a short period of time, but now it takes several hours to disappear, if at all. Any ideas what could be causing this?

My JVC HD56 has a purple/green tint and isn't very bright.

Not worth attempting to fix and that is the reason it was tossed.

My RCA 55 inch DLP HDTV needs the color fixed. It keeps showing purple and green on the screen

color wheel is getting ready to fail which is causing the color wheel to spin slower which cause the index speed to be off so the tints will be messed up.

Issues after replacing bulb

Turn off the tv and let the lamp cool. Remove the housing and examine if the lamp is crooked in the housing.

If not, you probably has an issue in the optics block (a filter or mirror has shifted). This is a major repair or diassembly the light engine to check the optics.
