How Can I Degauss My Projection TV?

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

 Samsung Projection TVs Degauss automatically when you turn them on. Consequently, they do not have manual Degaussing controls.

However, if the picture on your TV is green or blue on both sides or distorted at the edges or corners, you're probably seeing the effects of magnetic interference from a nearby electronic or magnetic device such as a pair of speakers, a clock radio, or a stereo receiver. To resolve the problem, move all electronic or magnetic devices away from the TV by at least three feet.

If this doesn't resolve your problem, try turning the TV off and on once.

Note: Turning your TV on and off quickly several times in a row can damage the Degaussing circuitry.

If turning the TV off and on once doesn't work, you may need to run the automatic Degaussing several times. To do this without damaging the Degaussing circuits:

1.  Turn the TV off.

2.  Let it sit for fifteen minutes.

3.  Turn it back on.

4.  Wait a minute or so, and then turn the TV off.

5.  Repeat the process several times over the course of an hour or two.

If the suggestions above do not work, and you continue to have trouble with your picture that you think may be caused excess magnetism, call Samsung Customer Care at 0860 726786 or additional assistance. Have the model number and serial number of your TV on hand when you call.
