Rear-projection TVs are becoming a thing of the past, as newer technologies like LCD and plasma have matched if not beaten the picture quality in a lighter, thinner package. One drawback to projection TVs is that the convergence--the alignment of the red, blue and green portions of the picture--can get misaligned, creating a blur or tint on the screen. Samsung has been producing quality projection TVs for years, and while older and newer models have different methods of dealing with this colour imbalance, it can be fixed in a few simple steps.

Turn on your TV and let it warm up for at least thirty minutes, if your Samsung is an older model that still has a convergence feature. Some models may also have a "Perfect Focus" button on the unit and/or the remote control--press that to perform this function automatically and skip the rest of this process.
Press the "Menu" button on the remote control.
Select "Function" and then "Convergence".
Select "Perfect Focus" in the "Convergence" menu to bring up that screen.
Follow the cues to go through the Perfect Focus process in this order: green, red and blue.
Press "Menu" to exit.
Fixing the Convergence
Press the "Menu" button if your Samsung is a newer DLP model that does not have a Convergence feature but is suffering from the same issues with the picture.
Select "Setup" and press "Enter" to bring up that menu.
Select "Color Weakness" and press "Enter". The default setting for this feature will probably be "Off"; set it to "On".
Use the "up" and "down" arrow keys to select the colour you wish to adjust: red, blue or green. Use the left and right arrow keys to adjust that particular colour.
Press "Menu" or "Enter" to save the settings and to exit the "Setup" menu.
