Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Model: Samsung 47w3hf - Convergence problem?

Hi,
I got home last night, switched the tv on and the bulbs aren't projecting correctly. basically the screen is off colour - greenish, reddish, blueish tint and there's like 2/3 cast of the same image. is this a convergence problem? i tried auto convergence and no luck.

how do i get parts etc. i can build computers, solder etc - so thought i might try to repair. but i can find service manual online.
please help.
thanks

    Many thanks.

    Is there a service manual floating around on the internet?

    I tried to open the back part last night.

    The bottom back cover appears to be sticking - i'm sure I've taken out the screws.

    Rather stupid question but how do i clearly remove the back piece of black cover?



    As I don't have a service manual i can search for the two ICs - but for ease can you give me heads up where I should find it? is it horizontally/vertically mounted etc.



    Happy to take a punt at the ICs cos that's cheap for a repair.

    Cheers

ll projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

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 pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Coloring is off and there is a ghosting effect


Hello,

Part # BP95-00142E is the correct convergence amp board for a model # HCN4226W. Part # BP94-00155A is listed as a "CG Amp assembly board" also, but is not correct for a model # HCN4226W. They are both basically convergence amp boards. Here's a link to order the original Samsung covergence amp board for this model (HCN4226W) from a major parts distributor:

Hi,
Seems convergence out IC is fried in TV so it gives blue shadow.

Check out Convergence Out IC which you need to replace in TV, if you have enough experience of repair of big TV, necessary tools and know basic electronics.
