Question about Samsung HCM5525W 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Bow at top and bottom of the screen

When I first turn on the tv there is no problem with bowing. But after 30 or so minutes there is a bow at the top and bottom of the screen. The bow moves down as time goes on. There is no problem with convergence of colors. I was wondering what this problem results from and how much it would be to fix it. Thank you. Brad

My 57hx81 has a slight concave bow in the middle top to bottom

Sounds like a problem in the vertical sweep circuit. Check voltages to your convergence ICs. If they are  not to spec then look for bad fuses and capacitors on the power board. These will throw off the DC voltage to the convergence chips causing the bow effect. I've had a single bad pico fuse ($1) cause this symptom.

Tv is messed up

I got a question.

Do you have any stereo speakers anywhere near your television?

This sounds like something a magnetic field could cause from speakers being too close to the tv.

If so try to relocate them and see if the problem goes away.

Check your screen. I have the same problem with mine. If the screen has a ripple in it, it could give the same effect.
