I had this problem as well. I checked out a bunch of sites like this to find an answer, but everyone had a different solution. My girlfriend however saw that one post said something about removing their surround sound speakers from next to the TV. I insisted that this would not work, but she made me take the sub woofer that was about 10 inches under the TV in the entertainment center. To my surprise within 30 minutes it cleared up and had been fine since.Hope this helps some of you, and saves some hassle and money.

    Well, the problem has resurfaced already.When i noticed it again i
    thought back to the day i took the speakers away and remembered that we
    had tried another solution prior to that. I had read somewhere else
    that it could possibly be some circuit board that wasn't
    getting enough power so we plugged it directly into the wall socket
    rather than the surge protection 10 way that nearly everything in the
    entertainment center is plugged into. Since the problem came back i
    figure it wasn't the speakers at all rather than the fact that it
    wasn't getting enough juice due to all the other things plugged into
    the 10 way drawing power from the same socket. I plugged the TV
    directly into the wall socket today and more fuzzy picture,
    well it took a minute or two. If the problem reoccurs ill try to find
    another solution and post it. Hope this helps those who have no luck
    with the speaker solution.

This is normaly due to the focus bias volts being out of spec, and slowly drifting in to specs. This type of fault is usualy in the high voltage multiplier section that supplies the focus voltage, or in the focus circuit on the the CRT circuit board.

There is also a possiblity that the CRT is going weak, and it is taking some time for its emission to come up.

The TV service tech can do some tests to determine whre the fault actualy is.

Depending on the age, manufacture, and model of the set, would determine the price and availability for parts. If the CRT is the fault, then the set would not be worth to service.

Picture Inconsistency (Blurring)

Keep in contact with Samsung or the repair depot, as they may hook you along till the warranty is up and then want to charge you big bucks. Ok if your not happy with this set, go back to the store where you bought it, and compair it with one they have on the floor. If there are not any, tell them your not happy with the set and see what they will do about it. If you get no where with them, contact Samsung directly and they are easaly found online. If you need a URL I will be more then happy to supply it. Good Luck

Green screen with almost horizontal zigzag lines

Is good that you hit it and it reacts,very likely you have loose conections in different places but for the distorted picture you need to check the horizontal driver transformer and flyback after that is corrected you need to check the complete chassis for loose conections.Take your time.Good luck.

Edges of Picture & Text Sloping

This mis probably a cold solder connection in the horizontal circuitry called the pincussion. Theres a couple of coils and resistors that overheat from time to time and the solder connections get loose. Not really for a handiman has this tv has hi vboltage inside even when turned off. Shouldnt cost an arm ans a leg to fix if the repair shop knows what they Are doing. Good Luck
