Question about Samsung PCN5425R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Loss of convergence after powering off.

One morning I powered on and all convergence was lost. I had no controls to adjust it, nothing worked, so I replace the convergence board, and convergence module. Now I am able to adjust my convergence just fine but when I power the TV off I loose the convergence and have to redo it every time I turn the TV back on. On another note when I try the auto focus feature it displays a message "Check Factory Settings". Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Loss of convergence after powering off.

You must enter the service mode and align your convergence and save it to the epromm also activate the auto focus to activate the sensors , power on /mute-1-8-2- / press enter to save and before you exit activate the focus key on the remote ,very inportant to do the last step./g

I have the opposite of a convergence problem. green pincushion cannot adjust so green is higher on left and right than center (bow tie). BUT red & blue will adjust and proprerly converge over the...

makenamicro, there is still a convergence yoke the green crt which means there is still a drive control circuit that controls your dynamic and static convergence. If you are working with out a service manual it is still possible that one of the convergence power amps is out, since you mentioned that you can adjust the red and blue to conform to the green pattern then try to adjust the green with out the R/B present if you ca not still adjust you green pincushion problem then suspect one of the power conv amps or a defective green conv yoke.(don't forget to check the small value resistors usually around 2 ohm and the pico fuses if the tv uses them. good luck and i hope i answered your questions, please let this web site know if yes by leaving some pos feedback. thanks!

Big Screen problem

What did you put in. convergence amp or convergence power. this is a rca hd52w59? i always ask the question in customer menu under setup can you see the option of convergence. if not this is the fl231 fuse problem. consult the article fl231 under tips and tricks section of my profile. the curved picture is an indication complete loss of convergence power. there is a board that does provide convergece power. The convergence on this set is controled by three diffrent boards. power,amp and the small signal board. the small signal board is the most expensive and most complicated to replace ussally a tech has to replace that.

RCA P56812BL big screen porblems

this is a complete loss of convergence. FIrst question do you have the convegence option under setup in customer menu... if you dont then it might be the fl231 fuse problem common with these sets. if you do then try autoconvergence... if fails then you probally have a bad convergence power board. there are three diffrent boards that can affect convergence. convergence power, convergence amp, and small signal board..

My samsung projection tv #pcl5415r don't want to perform perfect focus adjustments

perfect focus functions are based on service mode setup...or factory settings. if the alignment of these setting are loss then the unit wont perfect focus. does the unit have a complete loss of convergence. a complete loss of convergence indicate possible failure of convergence amps.

Convergence problems. FIrst try going into customer setup and seeing if convergence options are there and if adjustments can be made. unfortunately when the picture is bowed like that it idicates a complete loss of convergence which idicates one of three boards have gone bad.

A sign that amps are going bad, right now you can check resistors in convergence board alongside the amps, check resistance to see if right.

RCA P46159 Convergence

Why would the set go out of adjustments? I highly doubt if the set needs only alignment. These adjustments are for small drifts only. If anything is way out more then what the on screen can adjust, you have a problem with the convergence correction circuit. There is a convergence power supply in this set that goes bad a lot in these TV sets. There is also a convergence driver board. These RCA sets do not have the integrated IC's like most sets do. Each convergence yoke, horizontal as well as the vertical, has two independent power amp circuits driving them. And that's for all there tubes. So there are 6 separate amps controlling the convergence in these TV sets. You really should call in an RCA authorized repair shop to assist you in this repair. Good Luck

No pic no sound

sounds like convergence drive ics or power supply.would be about $350.00 +++ for these type of repairs

Convergence lost

If all 3 colors have gone out of alignment, it means that the power supply for the convergence output IC's has stopped working. This usually happens when one of the IC's shorts out and overloads the power supply, causing the diodes and/or low value resistors to burn out. The bad convergence IC should be replaced and the power supply restored by a qualified tech familiar with Mitsubishi projection sets. When I do a housecall for a set like that I charge $150, but shops in your area will vary so be sure to ask around.
