Re: MY Samsung DLP TV Has Green/Purple Lines

Its probably due to a ground loop problem. there are 2 potential solutions. 1: plug the tv into and 3 to2 prong connector and plug back into the outlet. or 2: get and inline ground isolator for the coax going to the tv.

Purple and green scrolling lines

This may be a mechanical or electronic problem that is dealing with the sync of the colour wheel. There is basicly no colour lock. This may be the replacement of the associated circuit board, or the motor assembly or the colour wheel.

The link below is describing about how DLP technology works. They are relating to a front projection type. With the rear screen type, the basic technology is very much the same for decoding the pictures from the TV signal.

This is a symptom of the circuit failing.
it will soon be much worse.
You need a tech.

Hello im having problems with my sony wega

It sounds like you have a loss of green. This could be caused by the green gun in the picture tube opening up or the drive circuit for the green gun gone bad. Stargazer
