If this set is new, a problem like this would be covered by warranty. If it is no longer under warranty, locate the convergence ICs which will be large black ICs attacked to a heatsink. Try resoldering the pins on these ICs first. If that does not resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These should be marked STKxxx.

Keep me posted,
Dan

I have a samsung rear projection tv manufactured 2/2003. model #PCL 5415R. PROBLEM: convergence Need part number of convergence card and where to purchase it.


Please save your money and get this unit repaired, just because the set displays a "Convergence"SYMPTOM does NOT mean that changing that board will fix the unit, 9/10 it will NOT. I see this time and time again in the shop whereby people think they can fix their TV whatever, and mistake the SYMPTOM, for the cause and try to fix, usually unsuccessfully at that. The CAUSE must be repaired as well as the symptom, simply replacing a board will seldom "Repair" anything as the original fault that caused the symptom still has NOT been fixed. Please get a "Quote" they are free and at least then you will know what is the problem, even if you decide NOT to repair you have that information.Also one MUST have a Service Manual to be able to order the parts as without this number you simply cannot get parts.. it is that simple.

I know that I need a convergence power supply board.


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.
