I have the samsung PCL5415R HDTV. Recently my screen has become an hour glass. Picture is still good just shows impressions on the both sides of the screen like an hour glass. Does it need a new bulb?????
It is possible that your television needs to be degaussed. Gaussing occurs in televisions that have magnets, (usually speakers) placed to close to the unit. A degaussing coil can be purchased at a good electronic supply store. Simply follow the instructions that come with it. If this does not fix the problem, the television will require repair by a qualified service center.

Hi Sandy, the problem with your TV is called "convergence". It can be a problem with the convergence board or more likely in this model in the power supply or deflection circuits. Unfortunately, troubleshooting by a technician is required.
Hi, this is quite a common problem for plasma screens and LCD screens. The fluroscent backlight is more than likely faulty and would need replacing. The best thing to do is to take it to a service centre because there are no user servicable parts inside the plasma.
