Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

SCREEN IS BLURRY WITH COLORS SCRAMBLED.

Trying to figure if this is something i can fix or what would be the estimated cost of fixing it.Sounds like a possible caibration ,the focus feature on the remote will not bring the colors back into sync.

    The Red Blue and Green colors on my Samsung HCL4715W are all stretched apart and when I try to manually converge them, the blue color will move but the red will not. I have tried for quite some time and it does not seem to be helping. Do I need an actual repair? The "Perfect Focus" function does not repair this problem. Can anyone help me?

You can buy the new convergence board assembly from Vance Baldwin and replace yourself. Its about $80 plus shipping.

54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors red, yellow-not normal. Set approximately seven -eight years old. Lost remote control and direction book in moving. Is the set worth getting fixed? Generally...


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 Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links 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 - makes a 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

My TV is almost 5 years old. Barely used more


Howdy,
Sounds like the TV has lost the VIDEO and only has color. Make sure all the cables are secure and good. 2) Reset the TV by unplugging the TV or any BOX you have attached to TV. Unplug both from a/c for 3-5 minutes, plug back in and turn both on.
If no fix. Go to service Company that is Authorized and get an estimate, possible cost $450.00 +. Too many areas of concern to help you with particulars.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Blurry screen double vision picture


The convergence circuit has failed. It is not a easy fix due to the tear down needed to get to the circuit area. I would call Mitsubishi at 18003322119 to get a Authorized Service Facility to check it out and give you a estimate of repair cost.

Sounds like your convergence chip has gone bad. Usually costs about $300-$400 to fix. I would call a local TV repair shop and let them give you a free estimate.
