On my 55 inch rear projection Samsung, there is a menu option to adjust the convergence. There is a manual as well as an automatic option. It is easier to do with the remote control. My Samsung remote has a button called 'perfect convergence' or something like that. you can also get to it from the menu tree pushing the menu button on the front of the set. You need to scroll through all the options to adjust color, contrast, parental control, etc. You should find it.

I assume the same is true on the 37inch samsung.

How old is the set? A number of samusng sets have problems with two large IC's that tend to burn out. This causes the symptom of colored shaddows, tend to be worse the further away from the center of the screen. I just finished doing the repair to my set. If you cannot adjust the convergence, that is most likely your problem.

Good luck!

Bad color scheme - cannot adjust enough


If you haven't already done so, it may be that all you need to do is adjust the convergence after moving the set. You should find convergence and its adjustments in the setup menu

Bright shadows


Is this a convergence problem? Did you try adjusting the convergence? IF the bright shaddow is also colored, that might be it. See this discussion:

Blue is just not right


Typical convergence problem. Your going to have to have the two convergence IC's replaced at one time but if you have no soldering skills or know about the safety facts with solid state TV repair, you really should call out a trained service person to assist this repair for you.
