Question about Samsung HCN653W 65" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

No audio or video timer light flashes 9 times

It was sudden and unexpected but while watching my TV the screen shrunk and lost convergence. It then bowed out on the left and right sides and shut off. This all happened in about 5 to 10 seconds. I attempted to power it back on with the remote and it came on for about 5 seconds and then off. Since then I cannot get it to come on at all, I can hear the power come to the audio amp but not picture or sound. What typically happens when powered on is the timer light will flash 9 times and then go off. Sometimes it will just come on solid. I have opened it up and looked for anything obvious (burnt wires boards etc.) and none is found also there is no indication of fried components by smell. In fact it is very clean back there. I have been given a possible problem that my convergence chips have failed but it is a big guess from my discription. So I am looking for other guesses and possible solutions short of take it a service center as the closest one is 67 miles away and will not pick up. I purchased the service manual for this unit and attempted to key in the service code in the hopes something might happen. I can see the TV responds to the remote inputs without problem but of course I get no audio or video. It has been over 25 years sinced I messed around in the back of a television so I am definitely out of practice, however I am not afraid to do a little soldering or testing given some places to start. Thanks

SOURCE: Lights Flashing ???

Check the lamp cover to see if its properly engaging the lamp switch in the down position. You may have to short the switch out altogether. Its a known issue.

Picture on screen shrunk to about half size and color bands go around the picture - red, yellow, green, blue - almost looks like things are in 3D


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

e87380c.jpg
Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.

Projection sets have two very common problems outlined below.

The first common problem is convergence

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. The TV can also shut down when the convergence starts to fail.

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,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith, RCA and others.

No picture on a Sony KV-32V65 TV


AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the Cboard, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking.
