Try and see if a TV booster helps...This is especially the case if you are using an antenna to capture analogue signals.

It is having double image. The second image is to the right with red color.


Sounds like a convergence problem. See if you can adjust the customer convergence controls (in the menu).
If you can not adjust one or both the colors than your convergence amp is toast!

Just fixed the convergence chip problem.$534.00. Now 720p and 1080 1 signals are showing double images and colors. Also the componentinput #2 is showing double images on any format


many of these sets need the convergence adjusted in the 480 and the 1080 separate-- the set most likely if looks good in 480 needs to be adjusted with the original remote in the 1080 mode.

Whoever charged you 534 got you---if you did it yourself you paid way too much--with 1080 signal--enter convergence mode and try to adjust in customer menu--if 480 is ok---it needs to be adjusted in the hd mode.

Pink and green color out of focus people have one green hand extended with another pink hand double exposed features. Tried to adjust the color convergence and it won't work and it is all out of line and...


The mirror that projects the image on the screen from the lights below is most likely out of alignment, this is a very delicate adjustment to make. If your not familure with doing this, it will need to go to a shop. I hope this helps, if you have any other questions please contact me. Good luck.

Samsung HCN4727W Rear Projection TV, green screen, audio works


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,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

*Dull looking picture

  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
