HX-P4241W appears yellow. Left and Right of screen are yellow

Hello,

I am currently trying to figure out what is wrong with my tv. It is a Samsung HC-P4241W and it is only 2 1/2 years old.

All the whites look yellow. The left and right of the screen are yellow. Any idea how to fix this. Is it possible the red,green and blue need to be realigned?!.

Any help would be appreciated. I will give me indepth information if needed.

    Hello, for me same tv and problem, yellow / orange colour dominates, i cleaned the lenses and seems that the blue is weaker than the others, I tried adjusting contrast, colours, everything...without success.

    maybe the 3000h lamp is getting old and weak, on the samsung website they say the lamp is weak at it's life end...but I don't know what kind of lamp i would need for the TV and where I couls find one at better price...if this is the problem.

Yellow is the lack of blue. It can happen when you are running your contrast - which is your overall light level - too high.

Try turning down your contrast. On CRT tech, contrast should always be run at half what the factory allows as full, on the user controls. Full up is what calibrators call Torch Mode, and is NOT the way to get performance to be in the linear operating range of CRT tech.

If your sides are more yellow than your middle, your set may need lenstriping. Mild yellow on the sides is not uncommon, and usually not noticed. But heavy yellow on the sides would indicate that the blue image needs work on white field uniformity.

Yellow is the lack of blue, in CRT tech.

First off, do you not know Internet etiquette? Caps are considered yelling or shouting! So please! head You have the typical convergence failure of the convergence correction IC's. They BOTH need to be replaced. If you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
