How to install new lcd screen

Installing a new LCD is fairly easy in this model.
#1 Remove two bottom screws
#2 Remove four side screws
#3 Slide off silver side panel on the left Front side of the camera
#4 Carefully remove front cover (careful to pry off from the top)
#5 Flip over front cover and release the power panels ribbon cable from the system board
#6 Flip over plastic protector
#7 Remove Back Cover from LCD side
#8 The LCD is being held by 3 ribbon cables.
(This next step should be done very carefully - damage can occur if it is done incorrectly)
#9 Release the middle ribbon cable by carefully flipping up the black portion of the clamp.
Equal pressure should be applied to the full black portion when attempting to flip open.
Do not use excessive force.
#10 Release remaining cables and remove LCD.

To assemble just reverse the steps. We have color diagrams available just ask.

Thank you

Need another set of tv-to-tv cables. An a/v cable and a dc cable

I had to move my AV cable around quite a bit to get the second monitor to come on. I realized it was the cable and not the connection by holding steady the connections and moving just the wire. I checked Radio Shack and Best Buy - no luck...

Then I did the following (takes 30 minutes max):
1.) found the portion of the cable that was bad
2.) carefully sliced open the outer jacket (with a box cutter razor),
3.) carefully pulled the wires (white, red, yellow, and bare copper ground) out of the outer black jacket. Inspected and found no visible defects. Realized that likely the yellow wire (probably the video feed) was shorting against the bare did the following remaining steps to remove the ground away from other wires.
4.) cut and unwound the ground,
5.) put the white, red, and yelllow wires back inside the outer black jacket, but left the bare ground out
6.) wrapped the two ends of the bare ground (that I cut in step 4) around the outer black jacket (still containing the other wires)
7.) reconnected the two ends of the bare ground, by twisting them together (you'll use-up an inch or two of the ground to re-twist it, so you will have to leave a small bump in the cable from the excess black jacketed portion.
8.) use black electrical tape to wrap all the wires together from the portion we opened-up.

Works like a champ.

Need to remove the outer cover on a Gateway

If you get power to the controls and you don’t have the startup sound or see the gateway logo when you plug it in, the main board may be bad.
If your picture was pinkish or dark at the top or bottom when it was working then you may have 1 or more of the bulbs failing.
If you have the startup sound and see the gateway logo and the screen just flashes and the power buttons stay lit, then it sounds like probably the inverter may have went.

Take the screws out of the bottom rear edge (these hold the front trim), and the 4 big black ones at the middle of the back that hold the stand bracket.
The trim then unsnaps. {Be aware of the small ribbon to the power button board on the right edge}Start at the bottom and release the trim (pulling up the trim on the screen side usually starts it off), then work your way up each side bottom to top ((a pocket knife or thin putty knife even a credit card, will help release the catches as you work your way up)
Then unsnap the top edge (rocking it while lifting helps)
Disconnect the ribbon at the power button board, (Tiny latch lifts up on a hinge and ribbon slides out)
Once trim is off, remove the 4 corner screws that hold the screen in. Then the screen will lift out with all the guts. You may have to pry up on a corner with a screw driver to get it started.
The inverter is under the medium size metal case.
The power board and main board are under the large cover.
You’ll then have to remove a bunch of screws including the usb board ones and unplug the bulbs and wire to the screen
then the power board and control board is under the center area under the metal cover
Shout if you need more info.
If you email me a good picture of the board , I may be able to get a better idea if it is the inverter from a visual.
Thanks Fran

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Need video jack

I interfaced the SAVV LM-S6001 today. Here's what I found;

Looking straight on at the male 8 pin DIN connector here's how I'll describe it. There are 3 pins across the top row. From left to right I'll call them 8, 7, 6. There are 2 pins on the left side of the middle row, 5 leftmost and 4 adjacent to the center. Moving right, there is a gap and then pin 3 on the rightmost side of the middle row. There are two pins on the bottom row, pin 2 on left and pin 1 on right. Draw that on some paper.

8 7 6
o o o
5 o o o 3
o o
2 1

Pin 1 is +12VDC
Pin 2 is center contact of both audio and video RCA jacks
Pin 3 is -12VDC
Pin 4 is outer RCA contact for Video
Pin 5 -n/c
Pin 6 -n/c
Pin 7 -n/c
Pin 8 is outer RCA contact for Audio

Now, I don't know what pin 7 does, but it is wired next to pin 4 suggesting a video application, Svideo is my best guess. I can only test for a composite video connection that I am using.

It's alive!
