Question about Samsung LE26R73BDX 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Samsung LE26T73BD Right hand side of the screen , it's as if a paint brush has been wiped over the screen from top to bottom in a wavy thick line of about an inch widre and taken some of the colour away. Easily seen when watching football with the green pitch as background - a totally different green. Nothing to do with the signal as it's the same using a DVD. Only had it for 18 months. Eamonn

The amplifiers driving that portion of the screen have partially failed.
Sorry, this is a pretty common LCD problem.
If it is under warranty, call them.
If not, plan on replacing the main control module.

Generic, All Around Useful Painting Tips...

When faced with an expensive Paintbrush with dried paint, don't toss it, Save It...
  • Soak it overnight - Starting out with very warm Vinegar.
Now so it doesn't happen again...
  • Clean well, Place it into proper sized Ziplock Bag & then put into a Pringles, or Coffee can, Then cap it with the plastic Lid.
When storing a partially used can of paint, instead of just putting the lid on it,
  • place a sheet of plastic sheeting like Saran Wrap over the top, then press the lid on.
Instead of using the edge of the can to remove excess paint,
  • find a large thick Rubber Band, or Tie a wire or Twine over the top and bottom, exposing it over the middle of the opened can. Now just use that to remove excess paint & it will fall directly into middle of can and keeps can clean.
If your painted project appears a little rough after painting...
  • Don't use sandpaper or steel wool to remove roughness, that will leave scratch marks, even if gone over lightly, instead use Brown Paper Bag.
If going to apply new coat or 1st coat over metal,
  • wipe down really well with Vinegar. This will help keep paint from bubbling, chipping, blistering or peeling away.
To keep paint brush marks from being noticeable, especially on furniture or cabinetry, or Doors,
  • Use a product called Flotrol. This will eliminate streak and brush marks.
And one more tip
When needing to know what type of paint is on your project that you want to repaint...
  • Pour some Vinegar on a cotton ball, then rub on the paint. If cotton ball has paint on it, it is Latex, Not Oil based.
Happy Painting

My ViewSonic monitor is having an issue with blurring lines. Anything on the left or middle of the screen blurs to the right in a faded color, extremely noticable when I open MS Paint and fill the left...

This is a tipical flyback defect circuit, the lines can 1st appear on top/bottom of screen, then can increase to center. Send monitor to repair center, for check and repair. You can test with a tv test signal.

Non-printing gap/line down page

Hey Danzo, This error is usually caused by dirt (usually toner) on the laser lens. There should be a cleaner pad somewhere on your machine (though I am not totally familiar with Oki) that will wipe across the lens. If there is no pad, you may have to find access to the lens and wipe it manually with a tissue or similar
