I am in agreement with the second solution. TVs, when moved from one location to another have a tendency to show color patches in the corners. A few days of usage, and the auto degaussing circuits will clear the problem. Also make sure that there are no Magnet Sources nearby (Un sheilded Speakers, some Power supply of amplifiers, A 2-in-1 music system, your kids walky-talky toy, etc.) Pravin

Hello, i have also came across with the same problem. To solve this problem you have to purchase some small magnetic chips ( used over the back of the picture tube, if you notice the picture tube carefully, you will see some black magnetic chips pasted on the picture tube, which are used to control the color of the pic. tube) which are easily available in the market. Bring that magnetic chips and move over the back of the picture tube and where you see the color pacth gone just paste it there with tape. Do it on both the sides and the color pacth will be gone. For this you have to keep the tv on. Please be carefull while doing this, if you are not expert do not try to open the TV

Your gonna need to degauss the tube with a small coil of wire. Maybe a repair shop will let you borrow or rent a degaussing coil. or try to unplug the set over night and try pluging back in in the n am and see if it took any amount of discolorazion away. if it didnt it could be the deflection yolk sahifted on the neck of the crt or the shadow mask inside the tube is damaged.. Good Luck

The chances of a damaged yolk is slim but possible. It sounds more like you've set up a new set of speakers either side of the set. Or maybe you have a VCR, CVD or setop box sitting on top of the set. Electro magnetic fields can cause plenty of funny color problems with CRT tubes so try to kepp unshielded speakers at least 2 feet away from a TV and any other electrical appliance at least a foot. By the way I had a TV which exhibited a beautiful color problem, it took a while but we tracked it down to the housewife turning her vacuum cleaner off right next to the TV to change power sockets and then switching the vacuum cleaner back on. Right next to a floor standing 26" TV. Her husband bought her a long extension cord :-) BMW

    Sorry I missed the "Just arrived bit" Don't worry, just by moving a TV over a distance can cause colour problems. The last thing a newly installed TV should have is a good degauss. If you're patient simply switching the set on over a period of a few days should fix your problem. All Color TVs have an automatic degauss coil built in and on switch on it's activated, it should remove the tints. If it doesn't then it's back to the speakers etc Above.

The problem that is happening is due to the shutdown circuit activating, which is an indication of excessive current flow. This may indicate a problem in the High Voltage section or in the power supply feed from the HV section. In any case this problem is best dealt with by a trained professional. I would suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair person and have them check it out. 
I hope this helps

Before I threw the TV away, I opened it up and saw a blown fuse near the power cable connection.

I just replaced the tiny fuse in the same TV. It's a 250-Volt 5-Amps fuse. Make sure you get this exact fuse. Otherwise, it will blow again. Now, the TV's working fine.

Green semi-circle of lines on Samsung 55" HDTV (projection)

I believe i have the same problem myself. When my TV is on any of the Component Inputs without my DVD player turned on i usually get the normal green screen. But now that is a dip in the green at the top of the screen from the top left to almost the top right and black pushing down on the dip. Almost like a green curtain was sagging at the top and you can see the black behind it. It does this on every input and distorts every picture you see. The distorted picture has all the green slightly off from where the rest of the picture is and where the dip at the top of the screen is there is somtimes purple instead of black.

I know the basics of how the picture gets onto the screen and its my guess that the Green "gun" for lack of a better term and somhow come loose, or been missaligned to a great extent. I would love to find an answer to this problem, and anyones best guess as to how much a repair man will charge, just so i know the ballpark.

Green Spot On Screen

IN your statement says tv is second hand and also you tried degausser method also. The problem is permanent magnetic field affected your tv set. So the best recovery is fix one button magnet in the affected area.
