Question about Samsung LE32R41BD 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Bad contrast and image

My brand new samsung LCD was working fine for 10 minutes, then the color went slightly red. The contrast can be adjusted to look roughly normal, but the picture is a little dark, and it seems like the contrast is too high (i.e. the colors are too strong). The figures on the screen appear to also be leaving trails when they move about. It's brand new, but came from a wholesale stockist so I can not get a repair under warranty. I really need a hand! Can anyone help? Many thanks

If this is brand new and you're experiencing this type of problem 10 minutes out of the box you either have a real lemon or something may have come loose in transit. There are ANY number of possible answers here and I would STRONGLY suggest not making it any worse by attempting to do surgery on it yourself now take it to a shop for an estimate. Explain what you have to me and they might find the loose connection or poor solder joint during the estimate.. Worse case scenerio one of the main boards are cracked and in that event if the tech finds it he can probably get the board for a VERY reduced rate directly from Samsung. Hope this helps. Bill

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

WEGA 36" : Screen is low contrast and green

Sorry to say, it sounds like a bad picture tube, But could be also the capacitor that filters the screen voltage on the crt drivers. In all my years though, your complaint has been the picture tube. Good Luck.
