Samsung's line of digital light processing, or DLP, rear-projection televisions utilize a projector within the screen in order to produce the picture. One of the drawbacks of this system is that occasionally the projector's picture alignment can be disturbed and require adjustment. Adjusting the vertical and horizontal alignment of the picture requires accessing the service menu, a process not detailed in the owner's manual.

Step 1

Turn off the television. This will set it in standby mode.

Step 2

Press "Menu" followed by "1," "8," "2" and the power button on the remote control. If this doesn't work the first time, keep trying; sometimes it takes several attempts.

Step 3

Select "Service" from the "Service Mode" menu using your remote control.

Step 4

Select "V-Position" and use the value slider to adjust the vertical screen alignment.

Step 5

Select "H-Position" and use the value slider to adjust the horizontal screen alignment.

Step 6

Turn off the television set when finished. Test the alignment by displaying some visual input, such as a television signal, DVD or Blu-ray disc or video game, and re-adjust the alignment as necessary.
