Lowest end of the spectrum would be 800x600. More than likely 1024x768 or 1280 x 1024. Could also be a wide screen variant of the above.

Rear project televisions use high voltage capacitors that lose their capacitance with age. Most likely there is a low voltage problem. You cannot repair this yourself because of the DANGEROUS high voltages inside such a set. Call a service technician.

Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

Hi there
It sounds like one or more of the lamps are ready for going because the convergence will not completely align.
Good luck

Mondern day television sets have to user serviceable parts inside them as they are all solid state and you will not ben able to look at a set and see something wrong. These sets you need specialized test equipment to troubleshoot relace and repair parts inside them. Your set suffered what alot of solid state electronics these days . A power surge will usually blow out the power supply section of a set and who knows what else. If your not a tech a TV set is not a place to be experimenting with anything .. best thing to do is call a tech to trouble shoot and give tyou an estimate. Now if you mailed in the Registration to the surge protector, and the tech writes down that this was all caused by a surge, then you shouldnt have any problems collecting what you laid out for a repair. The surge protector company,if the repair cost alot ,will contact the manufacturer to see how much the parts listed ncost and if these parts could go bad when a power surge to stop peeps from padding there bills. Make sure you get a complete itimized bill not just repaired power supply on a bill cause you wont get paid. Also make sure you call an authorized repair place for the manufacturer of your set. as its not 100% necassary, but much more legiter in the eyes of the power strip company. Good Luck

Hi..your temp. sensor tells you when your lamp is too hot and could possible melt your engine. That is why your TV shuts down. It could be your lamp fan is not working or not working good enough to cool your lamp. You may need to replace it and very easy fix.

If set has a few years on it, the convergence may be going out.

Samsung HCJ552W... | Answered on Jul 17, 2007

The fuse should be near where the line cord is attached to the power supply inside the TV. Be careful as there is a possibility of some DC voltage present from filter capacitors still holding a charge, long after the set is unplugged. If a fuse is blown and blackened, a new fuse will probably do the same when the set is plugged back in. Make sure you use the exact same rated fuse. IF the new fuse blows right away, do not repeat the process, it will only cause more damage. Good Luck.

You could or most likly have other componets on the convergence board that are defective. I have found capacitors as well as resistors that have changed value and caused the IC to overheat. It is a possibility also that the board has damage on it due to a leaky tube, as this is not the first time I have heard of this problem. You must inspect the board very carefully and make sure ther are no stains around any componets and if there is clean off the board with a non lub type degreaser made for electronic or electrical boards. Also check the parts around the stains for proper values and tolerances.
