    Right, I have the same issue, model LE32R87BD.
    The image sometimes (and more and more often) at startup is very bad with:
    => Great image latency : fuzzy effect
    => All colors are dark. Pure white is OK, pure black is OK, all other colors are much darker. This makes watching impossible.
    => Same symptom on all input : HDMI, Analigue input, Digital TV... Tries done with unplug of all others input.
    => Sound is OK.
    After a while (more than 10 minutes), image gets back to OK automatically, which makes me feel uncomfortable with technician support that I could request. (still under warranty)

    Image settings modification or default restoration has no effect.

    Look like a Samsung bug.

    Que faire ?

Cf my issue above on LE32R87BD The repair guy came here two times and finally changed the LCD panel which is very expensive. So far, it is working again properly.

Screens distorted, and shadow on screen


What type cable do you have between your TV and DVR receiver? Do you have any other component connect to your TV, DVD or gamebox? If you have a DVD player, do you have a good picture or the same shadow and distortion? If you have the same problem, there may be a problem with your TV. If you have a good picture, try unplugging the cable between the TV and receiver and plugging it back in. If you still have the same problem, try a different cable. If you still have the problme after replacing the cable, you may need a new receiver. I hope this helps.

Picture shadow on rear projection Sony big screen TV

You have 2 distinct problems that should be addressed separately. Please repost the Samsung problem. I will address the Sony problem here.

If the "shadow" makes the picture seem somewhat of a 3D one, the problem is with the convergence circuit. This could be as simple as bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and would like to attempt the repair, update this and I'll provide more details and instructions.

When i switch my samsung lcd tv model le32r87bd it starts alright but after about 2 seconds the picture goes and the screen turns black i can still hear the sound and the remote seems to still work but no...

Sounds like you need an inverter board which is the power supply for the screen lights. I tried to look up the part but samsung dosen't have a service diagram posted for it yet. Since it is so new you may want to find a samsung authorized service center because if the part is not available yet Samsung will have to solve the problem.
