Colour problems with Samsung LE37S81B HDTV

by pafosbsm2005 / February 24, 2013 5:54 PM PST

Hi I have a Samsung LE37S81B HDTV which is around 2.5 years old. It has worked fine until yesterday. I switched on the TV and it worked fine for around 1 hour, then the colour started changing to rainbow colours / bleeding? When i switch the TV off then on again it the colours are fine for a few seconds then it changes again to rainbow, greens purple and orange? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi pafosbsm2005,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for Germany. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So if you want the most accurate information, here's the Samsung Germany portal for support on that product: http://www.samsung.com/de/support/model/LE37S81BX/XEC

Hope this helps you!

Regards,
HD Tech

Just a thought.

How long since you cleaned the air vents?
And let's hope it has the air space or clearances noted in the manual.

Why? Sounds like heat buildup.
