Question about Samsung HCN5527W 55" Rear Projection Television
I have the tv and since I've had it, the perfect focus will not go past 37 percent. I've been in the convergence menu and tried to align everything. Now all of a sudden, the color on the big screen is completely gone, turning my nice big screen into a b&w tv, but oddly if you turn the pip on, it is in color... I don't get it. I'm having the same problem as most that I've read with the blue being fuzzy and in the convergence menu, the red boxes are now yellow and the blue boxes are kind of green. Is it worth having fixed, or can you help?

Do not automatically think you need to go into the service menu. I bet you 100 to 1 that you pulled out a plug or a connector somewhere OR one is not seated into the plug all the way. If the set worked with color before you messed with it, there is not a problem in the service menu. The service menu is not the fix all thing. it is there to make fine alignments and adjustments, and as a matter of fact, messing with a service menu even with the service manual is very dangerous. I have seen peeps ruin TV sets by messing around with the service menu alignments. STAY out of these alignments. they are not going to fix a problem that all of a suddenly comes up. Repair the problem in the circuit first. Good Luck

The tv has 2 focus adjustments for each tube, mechanical and electrical.
1. Mechanical focus is set by looking at screen from back (through inspection plate on back of most samsungs) and rotating the lens assembly on CRT. loosen wing nut and turn lens assembly to go through focus and back to best position.
Put convergence pattern on screen and manually misadjust bottom red and green lines convergence so they can be seen through inspection hole.
With back cover of TV off you can usually reach your hand up beside the lens assembly to loosen the wing nut then rotate to adjust. Green is in the middle. The focus will be obvious when you rotate and look
When you are finished make sure the foam dust protector is not over any of the lens assemblies and the wing nut is tight.
2. Electrical focus - located at front of unit. the front grille/speaker cover is removed and maybe a cover over the front crt inspection hole.
In the inspection hole there is a black plastic "Focus/screen adjust Assembly" with 2 rows of 3 controls.
One row is focus and the other is screen. The middle controls are for green with R/B on either side. Usually the controls are labelled as "focus" and "screen". You want to adjust the focus controls, one for each color. Look for the focus or screen label imprinted in the plastic. Don't play with the screen settings.
With the same misadjusted convergence pattern you can see a red, blue and green line. Adjust green focus and watch green line for best focus. Do same for other 2.
Screen adjustments are very exact and delicate. The easiest way to deal with them is to turn color off in Customer adjust menu. Put any color tone adjustments in the middle (low, med, high, put at med).
You should have a b/w picture if there are no crt or other color related faults. If it is close to B/W leave screens alone.
If the pix is too green, then the green screen setting must be reduced a small amount. Do not play with these adjustments as most TV repairrers have a difficult time adjusting them.
If focus adjustments don't help then focus control or CRT may be defective. Needs expert to determine.
