Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Samsung CRT slimfit that I bought in 2006. It has worked splendidly until about 4 months ago and suddenly I have started to notice the edges of the screen about 2-3 inches on both sides have become blurry and any text that is on the screen is becoming unreadable. It's like the tv is out of focus but only on the edges. Is this fixable, or is the tv dying?

In my experience from doing Samsung's warranty work on slimfit sets, they have issues with picture tubes causing problems on the circuit boards. Many times I would replace a board only to have it fail a short time later. The wide crt draws a large amount of current and many have purity (discoloration around edges) problems. I would suggest you try contacting samsung to see if any recall exhists on these and if that doesn't work I wish you luck having it repaired properly for under 275.00

Samsung slimfit keeps turning off


When the TV is on, how about the back light(you can check that on your TV's back side)

If the back light on -- need to replace Main Board.
no back light -- need to replace Power Board

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
