Question about Samsung HCN4226W 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Wierd problem When plugged into cable tv the picture is fine and everything is aligned correctly, except that i have now noticed that the picture is zoomed in too much; when watching espn the ticker at the bottom is half cut off. When using component cables for the XBOX 360 all of the sudden there seems to be a convergence problem, the picture is blurry and out of focus. Also when trying to use the perfect focus funtion, it says no sensor data. How can i fix this problem?

Re: Wierd problem

HD projection televisions have seperate convergence alignment for 480i-1080i thus your problem when you use your XBOX360. The "No sensor data" that shows up is due to the fact that the sensors need to be initilized after doing the convergence in 1080i mode. You will probably need a technician to do the alignment because if it is out that much then a template needs to be used to get it corrected. For now you can put your XBOX in a lower display mode until repairs are done.

I have a ge 42 inch rear projection tv. The colors are crossed and I was wondering if this is bnecause of the lenses out of alignment? if so, how can I adjust it? there is no setting for alignment.

It is possible, that the type of connection you have to your TV are crossed.

With COMPONENT cables, you have 3 plugs, red green and blue.

If this is the case, correct the plugs location to the correct plug.

Lens alignment results in a fuzzy (diffused) picture.

outside of that I too am at a loss.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Componants in back don't seem to work, HD cable,

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence

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,Akai,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...

*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.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

TV comes on, various colors are not aligned

This is a convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually charge between $200-$300

All inputs work except for the component videos.

When your tv shows a blue screen it not getting a signal!! In your mit's you have to go into the customer menu and turn on the input/device. The device control is on the remote, click over to input and activate (enter). Also, look into owners manual, the customer service at mit's will step you through it if you wish. Note: put cables into comp 1 (eg), make sure colored cables are correctly inserted, and audio. (red, blue, green) red/white; audio.

Picture is snowy on every channel. I hooked up my playstation and set it to the correct channel but the screen display is the same. I tried using the menu and the menu comes up just fine. The menu goes on...

If one tv looks good and another one dosent look good or operate correctly then we know for sure that the problem is not the antenna. Now the menu comes up ok because the menu is injected after the tuner into the video curcuit from a osd or microprocessor. sounds like you could have a defective tuner or antenna block assy.
