There is probably some cold solder connections on the circuit board, or with some of the connectors that are working with the pin correction and or convergence circuits.

An experienced TV service man should be able to service this for you. These types of faults can be time consuming to locate and service.

Considering that the set is 8 years old, I would be seriously looking at a new set! As the set ages its reliability will decrease. Investing money to service it does not mean there will not be other problems with it.

Go to menu then setup look for convergence if not on menu you have a blowed fuse FL231 will be next to FBT flyback transfomer on right side there is 3 in a roll small brown looking caps but they are fuses it will be the one in the middle.You can take a pair of plyers to pull off top they are all removeable and just snap back on.

I was watching my HCL4715W TV and the picture


It sounds like one of the convergence Ic chips is bad---you will need to locate and replace both of them and look for any damaged parts around them; there usually are two pico fuses in this area, one for each IC. The fuses do not look like glass fuses--they usually are green or orange in color and will have the amperage marked on them and on the top of the circuit board.

Fuzzy picture, oval shaped, scrolling up slowly


I would start by checking the large filter capacitors in the power supply. I can't be sure since I'm not seeing the set, but it sounds like you're describing AC ripple. In a 20-year-old set, some of those electrolytics will be drying out. A few replacements may take care of the trouble for you.

Picture is warped. rca 52 inch model p52929


This is hte beginning of a convergence problem. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and will be marked STKxxx. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs.

Keep us posted.

Green semi-circle of lines on Samsung 55" HDTV (projection)


I believe i have the same problem myself. When my TV is on any of the Component Inputs without my DVD player turned on i usually get the normal green screen. But now that is a dip in the green at the top of the screen from the top left to almost the top right and black pushing down on the dip. Almost like a green curtain was sagging at the top and you can see the black behind it. It does this on every input and distorts every picture you see. The distorted picture has all the green slightly off from where the rest of the picture is and where the dip at the top of the screen is there is somtimes purple instead of black.

I know the basics of how the picture gets onto the screen and its my guess that the Green "gun" for lack of a better term and somhow come loose, or been missaligned to a great extent. I would love to find an answer to this problem, and anyones best guess as to how much a repair man will charge, just so i know the ballpark.

Distorted picture


You need to re-solder the circuit board that contains the STK convergence modules. They're on the center circuit board attached to an aluminum heat sink that's about 8" long and 6" tall, about dead center in the circuit board. You may be able to recreate the problem (hour glass effect) by gently moving the heat sink (which the modules are connected to). This gives the hour glass effect on the picture and the advanced convergence screen. This is an indication that the modules pins aren't solidly connected (meaning soldered) properly. Remove the circuit board and clean the old solder off & resolder the modules pins to the circuit board reconnected the board and then retest by again pushing on the heat sink. This is a caused by a minimum effort (a.k.a. minimum cost) solder job, probably done in some 3rd world sweat shop. The "factory" job was good enough for 3-4 years but the heat (and these modules do create a lot of heat) and stress created from repeated use eventually takes it's toll, weakens the pin connections and our problem occurs. take the appropriate cautions working around the high voltage of the set & use a non-conduting piece of wood to push the heat sink when doing tests. Best of luck, hope ya fix it.
