Here is a copy of your users manual, it tells you how to adjust the color on the TV, Magnets do not affect Plasma TV's. If your picture looks bad you might have a defective or failing part if you just need to turn the red up or down or make the picture more blue or green the users manual tells you how to adjust it.
It sounds like either the X-Main board or the Main Board has failed. I recommend calling 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center to repair it. You can spend a lot of money replacing parts on a plasma before you find the defective part.
This sounds like your Z sustain board has gone bad. I just repaired an HP plasma today with the same complaint. All the modules inside were LG. The Z board is the one on the Right side of the set with the cover off or facing the back. You might have 1 or 2 ceramic fuses on it, check them, if one is bad Replace the board.
Sorry Ginko, but a convergence problem would have the curves down from the top and up from the bottom. The hourglass shape is a pincushion problem. This can be as simple as a bad capacitor in the pincushion circuit.
Could you please confirm the model number so I can look up the probable part?
If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it. Good Luck.
The set has 3 IC's(one for each color)strictly dedicated for the aligment of each color,if one them does not align is because is going bad or is already bad becuase picture can not be adjusted,the IC's can be identify because they are mounted on a heat sink and have the markings STK--- ---,they are all the same and need to be replaced with an exact replacement.If you are familiar with tv service you can replace them,sometimes the new ones need to be aligned from the service menu,you will need the service manual,soldering and unsoldering will be involved,If you are not too familiar be safe and seek the assistance of a servicer.
