2.Some disturbance comes in between and the picture is not seen
3.When we switch between channels the image of the earlier channel isdisplayed in still mode whereas sound of the current channel is heard
4.Of late the when the TV is switched on no image is seen only thesound is heard and after some time the actual picture is seen , thepicture then fades of and bands of differnt colors are seen
5.and sometimes there is just a green screen

Can anyone please tell me what is the exact problem in the TV

Thanks in advance

    i changed the light in the tv, seen a lot of dust build up inside, went to the store and purchased a can of air to blow out inside of fan, bulb and other parts, turned on tv, worked fine for a few minutes then the screen started to act up, good sound but screen gets bright lines in it and jumps around then light goes out then comes back on. i just wanted to clean out dust now i am in a real mess.

    We have a RCA HD projection TV that was purchased new in 2005. When we turn it on, it takes a long time for the picture to come on and it makes kind of a fuzz noise with some squealing. When the picture starts to come on, you can only see a shadow of the picture with wavy lines through it. If you tap it on the left side at the top, it works right. What can we do?

Sounds like a tuner or Video output problem. What make and model set do you have.

I have a sony kp-48s65 projection tv. I have three lamps in back a red a green and a blue. when turned on the sound always works
timer standby light blinks steady at 1 pace Once in a while the picture will just come on and work fine it may work for 1 hour or 10h min then the picture goes out . What can i do. People say lamps but when the picture is on and working the three lights behind work fine . its like whatever powers the lights isnt working
Unplugging and plugging back in and waiting usually brings it back on. For so long . When it is on the screen I can see hard bright green and red the picture is really too red its ok but its hue is off or something Tv in good shape what do i do?

My dad has a sony rear projection tv and had this same problem. A shop had to replace one of the color tubes(?) (green, red, or blue) had to be replaced. The shop said this was common with Sony rear projection TV's.

TV Picture Freezes and Turns Off; Cannot Use Remote

My shop had this problem yesterday. We had to change the DMD to correct it. One of the data lines was being drawn down intermitently. This doesn't eliminate the digital PCB, but, we have seen the DMD do this more than a digital. You should have an authorized shop do the repair. Contact Samsung at 1-800-SAMSUNG or contact by email: Hope this helps.
