Practice visual acuity technique!Check signal PCB for CRT coolant leak.Cleaning circuit board may restore normal operation,but one or more leaks will cause problems to re-occur.Change leaky CRT(s).

Color alignment problem

You will need to put the unit into wahts called service mode because it will have to totally realigned since you change the whole module you changed the chip that had you stored memory setting for convergence called an EEPROM. here in the shop I would unsolder the old EEPROM and put it on the new BOARD. Also on most models you don't have adjustments for the green you have to move red and blue to match green. Imay want you to describe again to me what you can adjust now with the new board in the unit can you move all colors left right and up/down

HCM4215W Green convergence problem

Hi Greg,
Sounds like you have a bad convergence chip in the convergence board. Unfortunatly, about 80% of the rear projection sets I work on have this similar problem. I suggest that you change both chips ( there are 2 of the same ) and remember to use heat sink compound as this is why you not have the problem ( excessive heat destoys electronic components). Good Luck
