Question about Samsung HCN4226W 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

3 Answers

Colors are smeared

The colors are "smeared" on my TV. I tried the manual convergence as suggested in the manual, and was able to align the red, but for the blue adjustment, the remote did not allow the alignment - the remote could not move the lines for adjustment. If you have any suggestions, or can tell me where to find servie - I live in a fairly rural area. Thanks.

Everybody here seems to have basically the same problem so I will write a general fix for these Samsungs. First what you got is known as Convergence failure, A Ic or resistor, fuse or some other component has failed in the convergence circuit. So finding the service menu and trying to align the colors or spinning magnets on the CRT’s or a real bad idea of tipping a CRT or mirror would be the equitant of ripping the transmission out of your car because it had a flat tire. When the convergence fails no adjustment will bring it back, and if you do one of these stupid things then you have two problems. Now most of these Samsungs have an easily replicable board that all the convergence amplifiers are on. This can be found by removing the back and seeing if there is a board about 9 X 5 inches big and mounted to the CRT mounts, there will be 5 connector to this board. Now if your set does not have this board and instead has the two convergence Ic’s (these are about the size of a playing card and have the numbers STK392-040 on them) mount down on a board below and to the right ( this is known as the deflection board) this repair will not work for you. Instead you will need to component level repair the convergence circuit. But if you do have this separate convergence board the repair is fairly straight forward. Go to www.vancebaldwin.com or some other supplier and order BP95-00142E this is the convergence board. This board has been crossed several times through the years but this is the current version. Now once you get this board simply replace it making sure to get al the connector back in there original spot. The fire up the set and run Flash focus and for about 95% this will fix the set

Our samsung HCl4715W tv is all connected right but our picture is scrambled where you see double exposure and the color is off. Can not find our manual. any suggestions?


The problem of your tv is the convergence. Projection tv set has a 3 colors red,blue and green this 3 colors must be properly lined up to look the video normal. When this 3 colors is not properly aligned the video will produce a double image of color or like a 3d or wavy. In order to fix this problem you should adjust it in the menu program of your tv you should move any of the colors to up or down, left or right if you cannot align the 3 colors the problem is the convergence ic it must be replace. To locate the convergence ic you should remove the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug your tv, you will see this ic attached in a large aluminum plate it has a marking of stk--- and followed by a numbers. or you could contact a service technician do do it for you and save you from stress. Good day and best regards.

In the middle of my tv at the bottom the are green blue and red colors what can that be


The three CRTs (green, red and blue) are out of alignment in that location or the convergence circuit has failed altogether. Look in the users menu to see if they have a "converge or convergence" option to do a simple alignment.

If not, download the service manual and follow the instructions on how to do the alignment.

Note: if you can access from the user's menu, but the colors do not move when you try to adjust, then the convergence circuit has failed and will need to be repaired.

Our tv just started having a fuzzy image and the auto focus function aborts during the red color alignment. is there a manual alignment I can do to fix it.


What does this fuzzy image look like? Does it have ghosting shadows. Of course it is possible to align red manually from the convergence menu. But first lets confirm that it is indeed a convergence related problem.

My Tv has red light (color) out of focus..I've tried tuning the lance but it's not the problem in the lance..it's something else..don't know what..do you?


Your TV has three picture tubes which are aligned to properly converge the projected light beams on the screen. Each picture tube projects a single color of Blue Green or Red. During production your TV was carefully adjusted to properly align these colors. As a feature you have the ability to adjust these colors.thats called convergence.If you don't have a manual to show you how to adjust you can find one here http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/support.html
