Question about Samsung HCN5527W 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Faded colors I have noticed that the colors are faded, it looks like everything has gone through the was about 100 times. Also, on dark scenes it has a green hue to it. It tried the picture perfect and it gets to @ 20% then stops. I also, tried the manual convergence...but, no luck there either. Any suggestions would be great.

Re: Faded colors

If the picture is dark or messed up too bad, the magic focus will not function, are all the primary colors faded? RED GREEN BLUE? You might have a bad CRT, would call a service man to check out.

The color on my mitsubishi model # vs-5041 is faded and foggy.

Hi, did you try a color convergence? I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website: 

Hope this helps :)

Arc or hump on bottom left of tv and color is faded bad.

Your convergence Ic's have gone bad. Most likely a few small resistors with them. It's really not a job you should try and takle if you haven't done it before. Not a major deal for a svc co.
