Hi,

The most common problem with all 3 tube rear projectors is a damaged convergence circuit. The Samsung TVs are easier to repair than many others and the numbers that break down is not excessive. For every Samsung with a convergence problem there are a large number that did not breakdown. The fault is caused by bumps or noise in the AC power, not the TV design. This usually produces colored outlines around heads, etc.

Check out the Convergence Gallery. If you see the colored outlines or color shading as in the Gallery, you have a convergence problem.

This requires the replacement of the defective IC or ICs and any damaged or smoked resistors. Usually there is little alignment required after the repair. If you play with all the adjustments before the fix, hours may be spent re-aligning.

Don't monkey with it.

This is a delicate and difficult repair. If not done by someone with some electronic repair experience, the TV will likely end up as junk or cost considerably more for a tech to fix the damage done.

If you live in Calgary, call me. If elsewhere, find a competent tech.

Sounds like ( pardon the pun!) one of the TVs chops on the circuit board are gone. Costly enough repair, how old is the T.V? Is it under warranty?

Hi Anali. That sounds like the powersupply is bad. The tv has a one year manufactuers warranty. Take it back to Target and exchange for another one. Hope this helps.

Hello there Sir/Madam! My name is Alex and I work under FixYa.com expert team surveillance.


Take out your card and clean it. Is it responding when you are using it on your pc trough USB? If not card is damaged, but most likely the socket for cards on Nintendo died, because those R4 cards are really proven as not damageable.


Hope this helped and/or advised you on your next move.Please rate my solution, thanks in advance. Wish you good day

My Royal Alpha 2001 typewriter has been unused for years. I turned it on recently and it worked fine except it would not paper advance with the return button. How do I get the paper to line advance?...


Hi!
I'm going out on a limb here.
I assume the carriage returns but the line does not advance. Close?

- There is a setting for the linespacing which is either 0 (zero), or 1, or 1 1/2 or 2
Likely, this has been inadvertently moved.

- Also, there is a way of disengaging the linespace mechanism to allow typing to be made on unevenly space forms. This might have been moved.

Please feel free to contact me anytime.
