Question about Samsung Projection Televisions

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 hlp4663 stand by light


I recently had this issue on my Samsung HL-R4667W. Did the new lamp (phillips) but it still wouldn't light up and was flashing the lamp light and then stanby. I started to remove the rear covers of the TV thinking maybe the wheel or ballast finally gave out. After removing the lower cover I noticed a wire hanging at a unusual angle from a circuit board. I touched it and it fell off. Traced the wire back to the main control board and found that it was a ground wire. I re-soldered it to the board and the TV fired right up. My other lamp was fine too. I hadn't moved the TV in 4 years and only once since I bought it in 2006 so I can't think of anything that would cause it to come loose short of bad soldering from the assembly line. That was a year ago and it works fine still.

Blue CRT issues?


Yes the puddle is related to the Blue CRT coolant leaking. You are most likely going to need a new Blue CRT drive circuit board and quite possibly a new Blue CRT if the CRT got too hot from not haveing a sufficent supply of coolant. You can get replacement CRT drives and CRts at the following link.

Sony KP-51WS500 wil not turn on


did you notice any color flashing at all during the poping? As that model is fairly famous for the green CRT shorting out or the flyback arcing. Does the power LED light up at all or possibly blink? Let me know about the LED and I will try to help you diagnose what the problem may actually be. respond to this same post, so I can keep this problem seperate as I have so many responses with different problems that its hard to keep them straight unless we keep using the origional request each time.

White vertical lines in picture


It's not connections. On that particular unit I would suspect the Digital board, Samsung p/n# Bp94-02084a or the Dmd board. Have you ever noticed the picture freeze?
In any event, sounds as though you're going in the right direction having a tech test it out, it gets highly complicated...
Not sure why he replaced the lamp - but maybe he found it was about to expire.
Good luck!
