Turn set on picture is dark.. if I leave the TV on.. in several hours it's viewable.


I have seen several Samsung's including 3 that were only a few months old at the time where it was the lamp---one was so dim it was very hard to even see the picture or that the screen was lit.

Two suggestions here: One of course would be to buy and gamble and replace the lamp.

What I found in two of the three cases was when I removed the lamp the glass pillar inside it was "bent" at a angle from heat or a natural defect--in both those cases a new lamp cured this dim picture issue.

Set will monitor the lamp and if too dim may shut set off or even blink for a prolonged period of time.

If the lamp is over 2 years or age (average life) or was replaced with a non-Samsung lamp you are going to have to take the gamble to try another one.

Inspect the lamp---that pillar supports the filament and if bent the lamp is suspect at best.

When turning TV on it would click a few time, then you would hear a hissing sound, but no picture. Would have to unplug TV, as it would not power down. Unplugging and plugging in would eventually get...


The hissing sound could be high voltage leaking from a tripler. Observe in a dark room for blue arcing. Look at tripler and connections to the projection tubes. If the tripler is leaking replace the tripler.

Picture Quality


Clean the lenses and mirror. - Carefully with no liquid, just a micro-fiber cloth. They can be accessed by removing the front screen.
There are items in the service menu that can tweak color drive and grey scale, but you can really mess up a TV if you do not know exactly what you are doing. You can also do a comprehensive convergence in the service menu.

The colors on my tv have separated, red, blue and green.


This a convergence problem. You maybe able to correct "electronically" by using the remote control and menu setup options. If you cant get where you need to go via remote control. A profession tweak may be needed inside the tv to phyiscally align the colors. good luck

Just bought a samsung ps50a557s3f 50" plasma tv and the picture isnt very good.Have only got normal sky at the moment and i was wondering what the best settings are


Hi Smudger

Not sure if you still have this issue, but i have just bought this TV & also use sky (not + or HD)...

I got myself a Monster Cable Home Theatre surge protection unit from comet, basically it helps filter out all the background interference (picture & sound) & helps boost the signal sent to the TV..

I use a gold plated scart lead from the sky box to the TV & the picture is spot on.......i've not noticed any ghosting/pixeling etc & am well impressed...

The unit came with a top end HDMI cable & cost £135 (bit excessive you may think, but to buy the unit & cable seperate would cost £250!!) + the cable is a 'cable for life', so you can get a free updated cable as technology progresses :-)

My sky signal was always at half power (you can view this from the sky menu options) & now its almost full signal

White vertical lines in picture


It's not connections. On that particular unit I would suspect the Digital board, Samsung p/n# Bp94-02084a or the Dmd board. Have you ever noticed the picture freeze?
In any event, sounds as though you're going in the right direction having a tech test it out, it gets highly complicated...
Not sure why he replaced the lamp - but maybe he found it was about to expire.
Good luck!

Dim picture


If decide to do yourself, ya only have to do the green and blue ones, the red light spectrum won't allow fungal growth. Pull whole CRT assembly out to prevent spilled/leaking glycol from onto lower main boards
