Customer Question

the colour on my Samsung LCD TV is distorted, I can still make out images but the color tone is haywire. It suddenly went into this state without my touching any of the settings. I've tried playing back on DVD to isolate the problem wasn't related to my cable TV and still experienced the same problem.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for the reply, in answering your question:

have you any Television electronics experience? None

Do you have a meter and Tools? No

Are to trying to repair your Self? If possible

Just know what to say to the tech, to keep from getting ripped off? Yes

 

I was quite shocked that the TV's in this condition after barely 3yrs of usage but I speculated that it might not be a major problem. Calling in the techs from Samsung will be pricy as my warranty's up. I just wanted to firstly eliminate this from being a basic problem I could remedy with miminal tweaking.

 

Cheers XXXXX XXXXX!
