Question about Samsung PLH403W 40" Rear Projection Television
One day my Samsung Tantus (Model SP-43J8PF) rear projection tv had this green hue to it. Most of the other colours are there but everything is greenish. It is really bad for night (dark) scenes as you cant make out the subtle differences in shading etc and just looks green. I think it has also (might have) got slightly worse over the last 3 weeks although I'm not certain.
All the bulbs are working, its like the green is overpowering the other colours almost.
I'm ok at basic electronics but Im pretty lost when it comes to a tv. Any suggestions on where to start or what might be wrong is appreciated.
And is it worth fixing too?
You may try to get into the service menu and adjust screens/drives level(procedure below).
But first turn the color off completely and adjust you brightness to mid-range, what you`ll want to do is a grey raster or bring it as black and white as you can while adjusting the red/green /blue guns or tubes.
Also get a piece of paper and pen because you`ll want to record the original values of the items you may change.
You want to go into the adjustment menu.
Hope this will help Good luck
In quick sequence on the remote press:
MUTE - 1 - 8 - 2 - POWER buttons.
The TV will turn On with the Service Menu displayed.
ADJUSTMENT - TEST PATTERN - SET OPTION BYTE - FACTORY RESET
Select the function and use the VOL+ button to enter.
Save settings and exit by pushing MUTE twice then POWER .
