There is a problem with the self focus function on the TV set.  We have had ours replaced twice. Once under warranty and once out of pocket.  After you get it fixed, if you do, the self focus option needs to be set to "OFF" and only focus the TV when necessary.  Ours is going out again unfortunately. You would think paying what we all did for this paticular TV  we would or received a higher quality project.  However, Samsung only hymns and haws about it and offern absolutely no help other than TV repair people in our area that they know about. (which seem to charge absolute top price).

We tried to get the screen replaced while under warranty and were unable to Samsung wouldnt cover it.  Now we cant even locate the top layer screen and pay for it ourselves.

I dont think I will ever purchase a Samsung TV again.  Never again.

The left side of the screen is failing. The green and red no longer match up. It starts in the center of the screen, and gets worse as it goes to the left. The right side doesn't appear affected. I've...


You have a convergence problem for sure. This can be a pretty complicated repair. It takes more than just replacing parts. You will have an electrical service menu adjustment that will have to be done so that magic focus will work properly. You may want to contact a repair shop. Thanks

LG rear projection colours out of alignment


I have a similar problem with an LG (except my red is the one that is fine) and was able to talk to a tech in some detail about it. The tech prefaced by saying that he had done a hundred or so of these with exactly the same issue. This is very common and the life span of rear projection televisions is not great. Having said that, plasmas and LCDs are also limited in life span mostly due to modern high performance gaming machines which shorten the lifespan of monitors both plasma and LCD alike.

From what I have gathered, this is not a problem that you can easliy sort out. (Of course they would say that though) It involves replacing the digital board which means soldering followed by aligning the lamps which requires quote a lot of expertise.

The part itself apparently costs around $200 Australian and the labour will vary for the cost of the technician but I was quoted that the labour was about the same cost as the part.

Not sure if I would call this solved but I hope it has been at least a little helpful.

48 inch toshiba with color alingment problem


Hello:

Thanks for this forum.

I have a Toshiba 48" rear projection TV which started to show red and green lines on the left side of the screen and have also started affecting the left-hand focus of the image shown on the screen. I have had this TV for 14 years and had a projection adjustment done once before.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Picture Looks Like a 3-d Movie


This is bad convergence. Try self focus and if still not ok is hardware problem. The STK are leaked and need to be replaced. It's not easy, you have to remove the all deflection board and for sure you'll have some resistors to replace too. I sugest you to call a tech, but first try the self focus.
