Question about Samsung HCN653W 65" Rear Projection Television
Problem with red color being out of focus.tried to adjust by hand but still blurry.65 in samsung 5 years old.happend all of a sudden.how can i fix this. email@example.com
Sorry ,but this is your conversion IC or IC's that are failing , they cotrol the horizontal , vertical and color alignment. if you know how to do it yourself then just look at your STK IC(big chips on a heat sink)and get #'s after the STK
otherwise it costs $300-$400 for a tech to come out
you should be able to check out your STK specs. here http://nte01.nteinc.com/nte/NTExRefSemiProd.nsf/$$Search?OpenForm

Based on your post, no amount of alignment menu adjustment would correct the problem, then it is possible that there is a faulty component. most likely the convergence amplifier board Part Number: BP95-00142P. Alternately, you can try component level and simply replace the large ICs, check replace capacitors/resistors. Both of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Since your tv is old, the blur problem is probably caused by old
coolant in one or more of the CRT lens couplers. Hopefully, the lenses
are simply out of alignment, but no one has ever worked on the tv, then
this is unlikely.
First, unscrew the back panel of the tv console (should be a bunch of 1/4" hex head screws). There will then be a large white panel at a 45 degree angle held in place by two tabs or maybe even screws. Remove it to see the CRTs. A quick check for the blurry problem is to look directly into the CRTs while the tv is off. DO NOT do it while they are on if you can help it, as it is not good for your eyes.
Shine a white LED flashlight down into each of the CRT's top lenses. Avoid classic incandescent light in this case, since you will be looking for the difference between white and yellow. I you see a white plate inside, good. If the inside looks yellow, and has floating things in it, then the coolant fluid inside is old and bad. You can replace this, but it is a VERY delicate task and MUST be done in certain steps to avoid ruining the electronic boards anywhere within splash zone or drip reach of the lens couplers. The coolant is a special blend available at most tv repair shops, but it's basically clear antifreeze (which you wont likely find in an automotive store).
For the color being off, it is most likely the gain on each CRT being out of whack. First, change all of the user settings (in the on screen menu) for image, color, sharpness, etc to the middle or default.
With the back panel off, somewhere near the bottom of the inside there will be a small black plastic box with wires coming out the sides. This box should have 6 knobs on the front of it (the face facing the rear of the tv); 2 rows of red, green, and blue knobs. These are the screen controls for FOCUS and GAIN. And they should already have some sort of label telling you so.
I placed a mirror in front of my tv so I could see the screen as I adjusted, but you might be able to see it somewhat by hanging a sheet over the front of the screen and looking at it from the inside.
There's a much more in depth method to do this that is described in the service manual (which you are likely to have seen by now; they are usually either stapled to the back of the tv or hanging somewhere inside and easy to see)
But basically, just turn the knobs gently around until the picture looks about right to you. (Remember, if you turn them all up super bright, the CRT will not last very long. Try to keep the knobs near the middle of their turn ability)
If you want to do a full out overhaul of the screen, you'll have to make a lot of adjustments with a bunch of little knobs (variable resistors, really) on the computer board inside. The service manual will tell you what each one corresponds to, but most of them will have a subtle label on the board.

You have a problem with the three factors, and they are screen voltage, focus voltage, and control (focus 2) voltage. Basically these voltages have to be adjusted since the components in this section have aged some. These controls are usually located in the television on the IHVT (Integrated High Voltage Transformer) or as it is also called the flyback transformer. these controls must be adjusted together, along with the color controls. Here is how the adjustment is done (You will need a schematic diagram, a DC volt meter, and a color bar generator to do these measurments):
1) turn color and tint fully counter clockwise until you have a black and white picture.
2) connect the color bar generator to the TV (ch 3) and turn it on, you should see bars in various shades of gray
3) adjust as best as possible the color and tint controls to obtain the color bars on the screen Red Green Blue.
4) measure the voltages on the focus, screen and control grids of the CRT and match them to the schematic digram measurements.
5) adjust the focus screen and control grids to match the ones on the schematic diagram
6) once this is done then you adjust the color controls once again to obtain the red green and blue bars on the TV screen.
This should help if the CRT (picture tube) electron guns are still good and if the flyback transformer voltage supply is working.
However if you do not have a background in electronics please take the TV to a shop for repairs.
I hope this helps,
