Question about Samsung HCN4727W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture colors Hi... I have a Samsung HCN4727W & I just had a repairman come to my house today and he said that the blue tube is gone/bad and the green tube is going.... He said he can fix it, but it would cost $550 + labor.... I was just wondering if it would be worth it to fix it or should I just shop around for another t.v.(which was his suggestion) instead of putting that much money into the t.v. that I already have? Thanx for any help you can offer. Sincerely, Carla & Alicia Pray

One of the problems is that tubes for projectors are getting hard to get. parts hard to find plus there is a chance the red tube will go soon.I have 25 years in the busniess i feel you should start looking for another tv. The hard thing is figuring what kind to get.
there is plasma which has burned in imiage problems and bad panel they are heavy but thin. There lcd tv lighter last alonger time but have power supply problems and the picture is not as good as plasma. and you have dlp they look like projectors but they take abulb that gos bad every 2 years and cost 300.00 but are in expensive. make sure you get the warr tvs today only last around three years i hope this helps thanks doctor video. Bottom line is get the warr then you never have to worry what ever you decide its worth it. thanks DOCTOR VIDEO

Tv is yellow orange color what is problem


The model indicated does not have a "bulb" as it uses 3 picture tubes.

Examine the picture with color set at zero---stand back and look= if the screen has a mostly yellow (all or part of the screen) you have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube(if need explanation ask) and a look in the lens of the Blue tube will confirm this.

If able with back off and a small mirror look in each lens--red picture, green picture and blue picture.

If the Blue looks like a floodlight with little or no image--bad glycol in that tube.

I have blue arched lines and blue screen


HI:
Your problem is the blue CRT or picture has gone bad, you will need to have the picture replaced, there are three tubes in this model rear projection television. Red, Green, and Blue. Replaceing the blue tube is the only option for normal operation to resume. It may be hard to find the tube, but you can try contacting this website for the part www.vdc.com, they manufacture and usually have stocks of sony picture tubes and rebuilt ones as well. The company's name is Video Display Corporation...

I have a HCN4727w samsung. Red/green shadowing. Bowed image


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped or bowed
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Samsung PCL542R Manufactured in 2002 color is off


if you did not see the picture on the blue tube; that is your problem -- the drive signal is not getting to the video amp and the mixed color from the green tube and the red tube is giving you a different color wich is unnormal. a good picture is when the 3 crt are emitting the video
