Question about Samsung HCN653W 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Annoying Scan type Lines

I have a couple of problems with my Samsung. I am ready to dump it and buy a new DLP. One the Perfect Focus feature no longer works It stalls out in blue and then just fails. The big problem though is that there are brightness bars accross the tv.. Looks like cap noise. It is most noticable in the top of the picture when there is say an image of the Sky. There about 3 inches thick and appear to be getting worse. If you turn the Brightness way up you can see them very clearly. I did have a repairman come out and check it and he told me 800 to 900 dollars on top of the 80 dollars he charged me to just come out. He also said he had to take a board back and send it to the factory to repair or replace. When I called Samsung they said they couldn't help as my tv was out of warrently and it was a CRT problem. It's very annoying as this tv is barely over 2 years old, and if it's dead already it will be the last Samsung I ever buy. Steve

First you need a new repairman. It should not cost 800 to 900 dollars to repair any or all of the boards in the unit and any reputable repair facility would deduct the cost of the service call from the bill not add it on. The Perfect Focus problem sounds like a convergence issue. It's hard to tell from your description whether the bars are misconvergence or something else. Bad CRTs? Maybe, but I doubt that is the problem with only two years on them. You need to check with friends or neighbors and find a repairman who knows what he is doing and isn't out to fleece you or talk you into buying a new unit. I've fixed plenty of projection TVs for under $100 (We only charge $75 for a service call, work on your unit for 1 hour, and subtract this from the cost of repair) If I can fix it in an hour with no parts it only costs you $75. Get a new repairman with intelligence and integrity and I think your problems will be solved at a price you can afford and be happy with. Good luck.

Samsung rear projection tv has multiple images with differnet colors

The auto self focus screws up if the picture does not remain constant or close to it while focusing. It is designed to self focus every fifteen minutes. Go to menu and then setup and turn the auto focus feature off. I have had mine off for the past year and have had no problems. If you slide the bottom portion of the remote down you will see a self focus button. My suggestion is to put a DVD in and hit the pause button during a scene and then hit the self focus button. It should align back up and may take a couple of tries. (If you have an aftermarket remote, just enter the menu and then setup and you can activate the self focus feature, just don't turn it to auto focus!)
