Question about Samsung HCL5515W 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

PCL5415R conv. board problem. Having trouble finding part number. I have the manual Samsung

I have been told that my convergence board on my PCL5415RX/XAA is bad. I bought the manual but am unable to find the "CONVERGENCE BOARD", I have been told part number is AA95-00705A. I am not a TV repairman but have very good electrical skills. Can someone help? Samsung is useless when it comes to tech support. I have the picture breakdown and parts list that I could e-mail to someone. THANKS

    Hi I am having the same issue with my PCL5415RX/XAC TV as well. I ended up havi ng a local repairman come to my home and see what the problem was. he said it was the Convergence board part # AA95-00705A. They quoted me a total of $400 to repair. I'm assuming that a person could just replace the board as long as everything hooks up the same. Any thoughts out there? Is it as simple as just getting the part online and replacing it oneself? Or would there be other issues to contend with?



    Thx,

    Rogee

I'll take a look if you want to forward them to me:

This convergence board problem seems to be very common and if they are not too model specific (firmware embedded) there may be service companies repairing them. I don't; haven't done a whole lot of service for years partially due to the difficulty of trying to pry stuff out of the hands (or shelves) of Asia.

Samsung hcn4226wx/xaa red color out of focus


Ok first of all, the convergence board you are looking for is no longer available from Samsung, probably because of the large failure these boards are having. The only thing to do though would be to replace the convergence amp IC's on the convergence amp board. this will involve locating the convergence amp board, going to http://www.samsungparts.com, entering your model number, without the /xaa prefix. Locating the list of parts for this TV set, and getting the right convergence amp IC's for this TV set. The numbers for the convergence amps are STK-392-040. You will also need to get the service manual for this TV set to perform touchup convergence, as well as to realighn the magic focus into the memory of this TV set. If you have the ability to solder and unsolder, you should have no problem replacing thes convergence amp IC's. But i will have to say this, about 45% of these TV sets do still have a problem after the convergence IC's are replaced. this is usually due to the burnt ground return resustors on the convergence board, so be perpared to know how to read a scematic diagram in the service manual and to trouble shoot the board. There is no simple repair to this problem I'm afraid, with this Samsung TV set. But , if at any time, you feel lost in the repair of this set, do not continue, and call out a pro to assist you in the repair of this TV set. Good Luck with the repair of this TV set.

I need a new convergence board, can I install it myself? Where would I find a convergence board?


I presume actual model number is PCL5415R---you can buy the
AA95-01799Rboard--it is available :

I would suggest since it is over 100 dollars it makes more sense if you have a convergence problem to buy and replace the two STK-392-040 convergence chips on it--there may be a fuse on the board bad--easy to find--

You can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for less than 20 dollars

Let me know if you have questions--I have seen people who replace the board have new problems-cheaper and better to repair the one in the set.

I am here to help people--if this information helps you rate this solution--I do this here for free.

Samsung model number PCL5415R The blue bulb is weak. where can i get one and can I replace it it is a 52inch projection HDTV ready


You may also have a problem with the convergence. There are three color cans that project the image on the screen. A red one, green one and a blue one. The blue one is the one that you should try and adjust. Have you tried to realign the convergence yet? You should be able to go into the menu setting and locate this option is is typically done using the remote. What you will see is some cross marks starting in the center and move to the four coners. When you adjust it you will want to align all three (red, green and blue) crosses where neither color is more prevalent. If you are unable to get the blue can to align with the others, there is a problem with the convergence board. These boards or ICs can be replaced, if you have a repairman fix it your looking at around $250 - $400. If you would like to fix it yourself you can get the parts from...

My samsung projection tv #pcl5415r don't want to perform perfect focus adjustments


perfect focus functions are based on service mode setup...or factory settings. if the alignment of these setting are loss then the unit wont perfect focus. does the unit have a complete loss of convergence. a complete loss of convergence indicate possible failure of convergence amps.

Probable bad convergence IC's---STK units on large heat sink.

Also,possible blown fuse (soldered-in) hidden under heat sink.

Samsung is known for making the fuse devices hard to find.

Samsung 54" rear projection PCL5415R Won't Turn On


Although I am not incredibly familiar with your model, There is most likely a small board mounted above the others near the crts, there is a small red connector with a blue wire if you unhook it it will remove power from the convergence IC's and if they are shorted it might come up with conv out, will need a new module.
