Question about Samsung HCM422W 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power popped and now has odd bright colors down the middle** HELP

Ver much a rookie to repairs but I love this TV. Has been working fine for years and last night it made a sharp pop and was out. Unplugged and plugged back in and it powered up but only with strange brightly colored shifting and only down the center (vertically) of the set.
Please advise with potential problems and how to would be great as well.

No picture,good sound


If everything else works - there is sound and high voltage (static on the screen) - but there is no picture (including no on-screen menus), this limits the likely area of problems is the video output circuitry or CRT filament connections. Check to see if the CRT filaments are glowing. If they are not glowing, check for bad soldering on the CRT neck board and around the flyback transformer. Where the picture is erratic - coming and going entirely or changing brightness suddenly, with power off, remove the picture tube socket (carefully!) and clean the pins with fine sandpaper and use contact cleaner on the socket. This source of bad connections can result in a variety of erratic symptoms. Check for bad solder connections on the CRT neck board

Dark picture


you know it sounds like the same problem i had....
look this is something you can try.... "turn the tv off and unplugg it!!!"...you'll need to take out the lower front part of the tv......(where the speakers are to be exact) on each lower end you will find 2 screws..Be careful it will open to the side and there are many wires, i suggest you mark them to know where to put them back...then right in the middle there will be a black cover with about 5 screws..take them out....and look at the very bottom you'll see a thing with 6 pegs....the top ones are for the screen "DO NOT TOUCH THEM"...the ones on the bottom are for the colors...re adjust them...the left one it's for blue, the middle one it's for green and the last one it's for red...

I had the same problem after i moved....and after i re adjust that the tv looks super...
i hope that helps..:P

Axion handheld tv. No picture at all.


I have on and if the batteries start getting weak the screen display brightness is the first to stop working. Double check that, if you are on AC power try sliding the brightness control from dim to bright a few times and see if the rheostat has corroded. Those are a few of the quick checks you can try, let me know. Jay

White horizontal, zig-zagging lines


It sounds to me like you're describing the re-trace of the unit. It is repairable, and more so the sooner you get it to the repair facility.

TV Makes a popping sound, pictures goes bright then the screen goes black


It sounds like either one of the tubes are arcing (internally)....Or maybe one of the high voltage leads are arcing to the crt metal housing.......If so you'll see burn marks on the metal.....apply some silcone to the wire where it attaches to the tube.
