Hmm very tought to fing your solutions to this problem, since the troubleshooting steps for this issue does not exist for this model on the Samsung website anymore. I can tell you though that not even a Tv repairman can fix it unless he really knows what he's really getting himself into. So it is really up to you now to decide wether if you want to spend a little bit more money on this old tv or just get a new one. Think about it because you know if you really decide to fix it, it will happen again sooner or later because of the age og your Tv. Good luck!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially and based on your description (squeezed on both ends) of the Samsung HCN529W, it is a convergence problem. This is a known and common issue and should be repairable even on a user level. A complete repair kit that include the replacement (better) STK392-180 (pair), resistors and pico fuses are available from http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/, pls look for Slinteriors who is also a member of this community. What is good is their repair kit comes with instructional sheet how to perform the repairs.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

From description it looks like a convergence problem again, it would be useful to know if the old convergence board was faulty, if the convergence board keeps blowing it can be a faulty power adapter the cause.

    The only choice is taking the TV to a repair shop, and leave the TV in there to be tested thoroughly, this does not look like a common problem.
    I do not have the schematics to go deep into the problem, but if the convergence ICs, or something else on the C board keeps blowing, it can be a faulty PSU, if convergence board is fine when tested, and convergence setup did not solve the problem, then there are several chips on the main board that must be tested, following the diagrams on service manual. This job take time, it can still be worth repairing, ask a quote to a local repair shop.

I have an RCA DLP tv model HP50LPW52. the sound was there with no picture. since it is 5 years old I replaced the lamp for the first time. got it all hooked up, turned it on and the tv slowly came on....


That is your Color Wheel that is bad. I wish you would have posted the problem before buying a lamp. I would have told you to treat yourself to a new set instead of putting good money into a DLP set that is 5 years old.

Check if it has a scrambled image on all sources ie - DVD- VCR - cable/satellite box. Since the PIP is normal it sounds like the signal source is bad.

Samsung HLP5063W 51 inch DLP is 4 years old. Screen scrambled?


there is a complete section in the tv that translate the different resolutions from the different out side video sources you normally use to the TV native resolution. That area has to be replaced. Is a module repair needed. Don't get scare. now days this kind of repair is normal and has to be included in the repair price to see if is economical to repair.

You likely have a bad hyper board.  As time goes on the lenght of time it takes to get a clear picture will increase and eventually the picture will never clear up untill the part is either repaired or replaced.
