Samsung pcl5415rb convergence problems

I replaced both convergence ic's as suggested. didn't fix anything, same problems bowed screen, triple image. Tried perfect focus before changing the ic's and it says no sensor data and does the same afterwards. Should I just break down and buy the whole convergence amp module or push it to the curb? Could it be the pico fuse? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If you bought a kit from sites such as TvRepairKits.com go back and ask for help. If you bought the parts over the internet without instructions you have two common problems...1) Bad/Fake chips... or 2) You did the repair wrong - because you lack proper instrucitons.

Pico fuses - yes - they can be one of many secondary reasons convergence is not fixed on Samsung models.

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 projeciton 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.

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

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

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.

Let me know if you need more help....T.
