If TV has a "rainbow" color problem, we were told that sometimes having stereo speakers next to TV is a
problem -magnetizing effect.

The biggest and most commen prob is the STK392-040 chips on the big heatsink and check the 3.9ohm resistors also the is a fuseable resisitor hidden under the heatsink dont forget to change also.

Rainbow screen

Hi Metthew,
Most probably the TCON board in your tv is defective. Please consult some qualified service technician. Most of the time the company service centers ask you to replace the entire LCD panel, which is an expensive affair. TCON board is a small part of the panel. and its job is to distribute the picture information across the LCD screen. Good luck.

Left half of screen has dark rainbow effect and remains on for 10-15 sec after shut off

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Is it possible the screen was struck or received a hit of some kind? This could give a rainbow or odd effect.

I have a five month old Samsung LN32B360 LCD TV I just turned in on and the picture came on but it had a rainbow look and then the picture goes off with sound only?

When you say 'rainbow look', do you mean vertical coloured lines on the screen? If so, then you will have a faulty Tcon. Could you get a snapshot of the fault and post it on here please then we can identify the problem more easily.

No Picture

It might be in service test mode. You will have to contact the manufacture and ask them to tell you to turn it off. Front line agents may not know it so I would recommend to as to a teir 2 if any or ask them to look into the service manual of the unit.

Coloured Pixels in or around black areas when watching TV

This is know as a diffusion issue. Most times this can be corrected with some minor alignment on the pots on the YSUS pwb. Sometimes the YSUS pwb has failed and will need to be replaced.
