    people are red, the sky is green,

    I dont know how else to describe it.

    I dont think the whole screen is green - but the balance cant be adjusted to normalize it for some reason.. this is a new tv.. we have only had it for 2 weeks.

    Thanks

    Ok thanks.

    So we called samsung and they recommended checking cables.

    We then called the dealer and he recommended buying new cables.

    Your suggestion that we take it in means a lot of work to get it back to the dealer.

    Can you tell us what the actual problem might be so we can understand the true nature of the problem and make the right move off the top. Rather than pack up the tv or buy more cables.

    Thanks.. appreciate the feedback so quickly.

    thanks.. we in fact discovered it was the HDMI component cables that were defective. Once new cables were attached, it worked great.

    We decided to confirm which device it was before taking it in, and sure enough - the HDMI box /cables were the problem.

    Thanks - nice to have forums like this.

If the whole screen has this tint problem, there is nothing you can do. It must be repaired. You will need to take it in for service.

    With that type of problem you must take it in. The controls that you have will not fix the problem

    The only time that cables can cause this problem is when you are watching tv with componat cables. How do you have the tv hooked up (with what type of cables and what inputs you are using).

Samsung ln-s4092d no red tint


There are a few things that can cause this. Your t-con board, the signal board or the screen itself. The most likelly and cheapest would be the t-con board. This is the board that transfers your picture from the signal board to your screen. You would have to open up your tv and get the part number from the board itself.

You can get get parts for this tv at www.interliquidparts.com

Samsung 40" flat screen looses sound


this problem started on my LN-S4051D a couple of years ago. eventually the sound stopped working altogether. I then started using my surround sound speakers for the TV via optical out but soon that stopped working as well. I recently took the TV to a repair shop who said that the main board is bad and needs to be replaced. Labor plus parts was going to cost me $400. I said no thanks and paid for the estimate. Good luck.

TV color changed to display green only


IF THE GREEN IS ON ALL INPUTS, THEN YOU WILL NEED A DIGITAL AND ANALOG BOARD REPLACEMENT, VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR, TRY HDMI INPUTS FIRST, THEN COMPONENT AND SO ON

How do I get rid of purple and green wiggly lines? The black screen that appears when switching between channels was green a couple of weeks ago, that problem stopped after I unplugged the set for a while....


You have a bad LCD control board,It overheats and causes colored lines,screen to darken,or the color go floresent. Also check the power supply for bad caps.
when you have it apart.They usualy go bad on these tv's. It will cause the tv to take longer to come on.Or you have to hit the power button several times to get it on.

Green Pixel or dots issue on Samsung LN-4051D


That's a flaw in the driver/timing circuits, but it could also be something simple like a ruptured ribbon cable or poor connection during manufacturing. Simple or not either way the driver/timing circuits need to be serviced by a professional technician.
