Question about Samsung - Projection TV replacement lamp Projector Lamp

1 Answer

Samsung HCL473W 1080i red shadow & words are curved at top/bottom

When watching a football game or something that has words at top and bottom of screen, the bars the words are in are curved and doubled with red. The picture also is...I don't know proper word for it...ghosty and distorted (sort of doubled). I took it to a local repair shop and they charged me and told me they fixed it. They didn't fix it at all. I am looking for some ideas on what's wrong and can we just order the part and do it ourselves. My husband repairs computers.

I believe you have convergence problem on your rear projector TV. It require to replace may be 2 IC output convergence or the convergence drive, after replace those component you need to readjust convergence which mean you move the RED GREEN BLUE to be 1 on top each other you must have the remote control and service manual to get into the service mode, if you thing you can get those part in your country the service manual I may help you with that, ask your husband if he like to challenge it. I hope that is give you some ideas
Cheers

I have a 37inch protron flat panel.Problem is the picture is to big. when you watch a football game you cant evev see any scores on the bottem of the screen.How do I zoom it smaller?


You can zoom it smaller with the hd zoom # button on your set top box remote not the television remote. The button might be format or aspect if it is not hd zoom. But you do have to make sure the set top box is set to the correct resolution for this television (1080i for 1080i/1080p televisions and 720p for 720p televisions). You might also be on the incorrect input on the television so make sure you aren't.
There is also a wide button or view mode or etc. button on the television remote as well.

I'm watching football and cannot see the top score


You should adjust the aspect ratio on your cable box. Depending on your cable company there should be an aspect/HD zoom button. If this does not work go into the TV settings using the "menu" button and try to find a reference to aspect. Make sure it's set to 16:9 normal vs. stretch. You can contact Total COntrol Remotes (www.totalcontrolremotes.com) for help with this kind of issue.

Did you use the Automatica Convergence to try and straighten it out? If that does not help, you can manually adjust the convergence.
