If you have not already found out, your problem is Light Tunnel Failure. It is common and can be corrected DIY. Replacement part is nearly non-existent and manufacturer repair is expensive.
For additional info go to www.avsforum.com and search for "4805 Light Tunnel". You will find threads about the problem as well as fixes. I also posted a DIY replacement option as well:

Dark shadow


Uh Oh! Your light engine is warping a little from overheating and is distorting the picture. It usually means replacing the light engine.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Samsung and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!

Blue section (corner) and blue dots


This set has no internal manual adjustments for color. The Tracking or B&W balance is accessed via the service menu. I don't suggest you attempt to adjust without instrumentation. the trouble with your set is not an adjustment. Most likely the Optics are at fault. This model has had issues with filters in the optics being destroyed over time by the lamp. The blue haze will get worse and continue to grow over the whole picture. The only option is to remove the Optics (light engine) and sent it out to be rebuilt.

how dark? can you see anything throught the shading.. still might be a cap in the video out circuit but the one Im thinking of shades the right side and brightens the left.

sometimes RF or HV arching causes shading on left, mute your sound and listen for sizzle noise in the back.

Picture discoloration to left and right of screen.....


Hi! Guy,
This sounds like the G2 may not be properly adjusted, providing too much beam current.
This will some times cause feather edging, or lighter than normal raster on some scenes. This set should be serviced by a qualified service tech.

Side shadows on picture


it sounds as if there are speakers to close to the tv or the built in speakers are not magnetically sheilded properly (maufacturer defect) if u have or have ever had speakers on the left and right side of your tv then the magnets in them will discolor and distort the screen. sometimes even long after the speakers have been moved away from the tv it will still look that way. you may try going to the library( or online )and looking in tv repair books on how to build a homade degauser unless your tv has that feature built into it in the menu somewhere like some computer monitors do. I had placed the front speaker of a 5.1 surround sound system on top my tv and it cuased that same problem, but i found out that by placing a small round magnet with a hole in the center on top of the tv (after removing the speaker for good) right where the discoloration was.. had to flip it one side or the other to get proper effect...it immediatly took away most of the discoloration and over time it disappeared. I hope this helps. Please email me at agclay777@comcast.net as to your conclusion in case it will help others. thanks, Adam

I have have this TV for almost 3 yrs..now have a shaded area on the left side


The dark side of the screen causes of the lamp alignment or prism glass alignment. This is critical you have to consult your LG technician to do this. But if you have any background o repair consult the service manual. Please careful not to touch the prism quarts so that you maintained the clarity of picture and brightness on the screen.
