Question about Samsung HCM4216W 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue and Yellow doubles

Hi: Just turned on my Samsung 42in HCM4216W TV (5 years old). Everything was good for a few minutes, then the blue and yellow got separated into double images. Turned it on and off a few times. Everything, it was good the first 5 seconds it's on, then the double image shows up. Could someone please advise if this is something simple / inexpensive that one could fix (just have very basic electronic skills) and, if so, some guidance on how to do so would be appreciated!

Re: Blue and Yellow doubles

Well, fortunately the television that you purchased has an auto-convergence feature. What is happenning is that your color lamps are misaligned, did it get moved at all recently? Anyway, in your menu you should see a "Convergence" menu, and inside that menu, a section called "Perfect Focus". Run Perfect Focus in this sequence: Green --> Red --> Blue After that your picture should look great, if not try tinkering with the manual adjustments on the "Convergence" menu. Here are some URLs that you might find helpful: (just copy+paste into your browser) Your Television On Samsung's Webstire: Your Television's User Manual (Download And Open With Adobe PDF Reader) (The "Convergence" Menu Is Section 3.3)

Samsung hcm4216w

can you look into the blue lens when the set is playing using a hand held mirror and see if there is a picture in the blue CRT. If not you will need a new tube for the blue. If you do need a tube let me know as I have a source for good used tubes that are very reasonably priced.

Your problem most likely is on the signal board is my guess. If your not a technician it would be in your best interest to have him check L2C60 on the signal board.

The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck
