Re: bad color

This is an idication of trouble with the red tube. it might be as simple as a crt board or the tube might need replaced. i would have to open it up and see. the crt could be leaking or the high voltage to that tube might be missing. as a technician i would have to see if the red tube or one or more tubes are powing up.

My samsung 61in. Dlp screen flashes green/blue pic is viewable but everything is the two colors, also screen will flash icon check fan #1

You have 2 problems. Problem 1 either you main board or light engine is bad and needs to be replaced. Problem 2 is exactly what your TV says. Fan#1 isn't functioning properly so a heat sencor is being actiated to shut down your set. Make sure all the fans are free of debree and spinning. If one is not spinning, make sure it has voltage going to it. This will let you know if you have a bad fan, or a bad board.

I have a RCA Hd52w59 television that has a blurry red green blue colors on screen and the pics looked like they are caved in .any help ?

RED BLUE and Green are the component colors. If you are using component cables, which most likely you are, check to see if the Green has come unplugged. Try switching the cabls to a different input. Actually, if you get the same problem on another input that say....your DVD player is hooked to, you have a bad tv. If not, try to isolate it to the simplest thing first e.g. cables, input source, etc. Please don't forget to rate this solution for me.

Bad convergence. Possible bad convergence board(s), or bad connections at flyback on power board along with a little brown/orange fuse by the flyback.

How do you know if you need to replace the fluid? can you show me some pics of good red green blue color or some bad colors

If the glycol is bad, there is a easy way to tell:

Remove the back cover and with the set on use a small mirror--put it over each of the three Lens--red will never be bad this way.

What you want to see is a green picture on the green tube and a blue picture on the blue tube.

If instead of a picture either the green or blue look like a floodlight with no picture--the glycol is contaminated.

What happens is bacteria grows in the blue or green glycol--never the red--for some reason it does not like the red color.

Usually the blue will be the one first affected---picture will have a yellowish look over most or all of the screen (turn the color all the way down and stand back at least 10 feet and look at it,

Changing Glycol involves some important things---this stuff is like antifreeze bit ten times more toxic.

If you find yellow and want to know what is really involved respond to this posting and I will assist you.

Color is bad after installing color wheel in samsung dlp tv

Most times color does not to be reset. If you have a very ugly green or blue picture, then you did not pull the jumper on the dm board. This jumper must be removed when a bering type color wheel has be replaced with a new airless bering color wheel.
