Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Missing Color. When you start the tv cold it starts missing a color. In dynamic the screen flickers horizontally with the same image only containing all the colors, if you are lucky 1 + 1 = 2 and all the color eventually "merges", though this only lasts for a couple hours. If 1 + 1 <> 2 the flicker eventually just stops and the missing colors remain missing. In Standard or Cinema the horizontal flicker is infinite and never ceases. I have removed the color wheel, it spins. I have tried removing the jumper CN810, color seems to be present after but it is not quite right, too bright, off color.

Re: Missing Color.

The color wheel may spin but if you hear noise when it spins it's bad. the jumper is used when replacing one type of color wheel for a nother type. so donot remove jumper unless you've replaced the color wheel and the picture is bad. if the color wheel is good replace the DMD board. if the DMD is not available replace the optical engine.

You have a bad video board. If you can find one used it is fairly easy to replace once you get into the TV itself. Your color guns could also be adding to this problem. I am not familiar with this television and its components so I dont know if you can replace one color gun at a time or if once one is shot then all three have to be replaced. That should be a start for you anyway.

There are flickering, rainbow-like color bands running across the screen, especially in the component inputs, not so much using the HDMI input, but still there.

Hi,if your tv is and Lcd rear projection it will be the light engine that needs replacement.Because lcd technology uses 3 chips green,red and blue that create the image and colors.When they start to fail you will get what you are getting color discoloration and rainbows.If your tv is DLp it will be the dmd chips which basically its like the lcd chips but instead of 3 chips its only one that creates the image.Hope this works God bless you!

The color converter

Seems to me you maybe experiencing a convergence issue rather than the color converter. (Don't know what he means by that for that I am an a tv repair technician).

If it is what I beleive it to be, you need and experience tech to do the work for you. It usually contains replacing two convergence IC packs along with some resistors and sometimes power supply parts. All wich requires good soldering work.

JVC AV-27870 TV Image Problem

Hi Bruce,
Sounds like you have shorted or open Vertical Filter Capacitors. ( you may also have a bad vertical drive chip now since you've waited to replace the capacitors). You'll need to replace the bad capacitor/s and if the problem doesn't go away, replace the chip also. And as always, check for any cold solder joints ( bad lead connections to the printed circuit board ) as you replace the bad components.
I Hope this has helped.
