Question about Samsung TXN2726 27" TV

2 Answers

Color gone There is no color in picture, except for a broad circular area in the middle, mostly green, with a couple of other-colored rings around that. Is this something easily fixable? By me? If not how much and is it worth it. The picture is also not very sharp.

Try running a small magnet in circles from the centre of the front of the screen, you may find you may be able to "push" the problem off the screen. As snakehead commented, it's likely to be caused by speakers with a lot of magnetic field bleed placed near the front of the TV. If you are feeling brave try this homebrew deguasser!

Dust accumulation in color wheel, light tunnel, chip area can cause green tint.

It is very delicate area, light tunnel and chip can be easily damaged. Remove light engine assembly and color wheel. Blow dust out. Re-assemble. If the gasket around the color wheel housing is not replaced in the right position, or the housing screws not tightened correctly dust will contaminate the color wheel/light tunnel area.

Call someone that has done it a few times. If near Calgary, call me.



Sounds like the deguassing cicuit has failed . This aligns the purity of your colors .Most of the time it is a simple loose connection on the themistor or the degaussing input cord to the board . Or the thermistor is bad . The tv was not dropped ? If it was this could have loosened the shadow mask in the picture , then the only way to repair is the replace the picture tube . Good luck

It sounds like you have a warped shadow mask in your picture tube if your set uses a picture tube. A shadow mask is like a screen wire that lets the three color guns shoot electrons to their respective phosphor dot on the screen to produce the three primary colors which are mixed properly to produce the scene that is being shown. In other words you have a bad picture tube. Stargazer
