I have posted this solution for a few of the othe Sampo problems. This sounds similar. I had the same problem [sounds the same]. It was an assembly issue. the circuit boardThe T.V has all sorts of pink lines and other - 2_bing.gif in the middle twards the bottom was wedged in but not flat. the bend eventually caused the same type symptons. I removed the board, applied presure over a couple days, heated the board with hair dryer2_bing.gif and finally got the board to flatten somewhat. Also had to file one edge of the board to get it to set flat in its slot. Has worked since [over 3 years]. I do not recommend doing this unless you are prepared to throw it out, since this is very unorthodxed.

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

Samsung LE26R7 4BD, approx 4 years old, colour distortions


Check all of your cables on the back of the tv and your sources such as Cable,Sat box and DVD palyer to make sure they are fully inserted into the input and output connectors. Some times Component cables will work loose and you end up with a missing color. Temprature changes can affect intermittant connections. If that does work then you have a bad Main bd.
