Question about Samsung HCN653W 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Reverse fisheye!! My Samsung, hcn653w, went from perfect picture to a reverse fisheye effect almost while I was watching it! The picture is concave and the colors are way out of convergence. The left side is worse than the right. Tried autofocus(no good) and manual convergence(crosshairs won't budge). SOOO, what am I looking for? I need laymans terms, part numbers and explanations. I like to be prepared. Tanks in advance!!!

Re: Reverse fisheye!!

You are going to need to replace the convergence board assembly. It is available at Also get the service manual, as you will need to do some touchup convergence and reset the perfect focus setup again If you have the technical ability. If you do, great! If you do not, these service menu alighnments can mess up your set, so take no shortcuts. Good Luck

If the picture is reduced in size all the way around, then you are looking at a power supply issue. That would also explain it shutting down.
