Question about Samsung HCJ552W 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Colors have seperated on top of screen

I have a Zenith HDTV 50 inch big screen tv; model number r50v26. I have had it for several years with no problems but today it is as if the colors have bled down on the top left side. Best way to describe it is to divide the screen into 6 quadrants, the color speration is in the top left and middle, the red and greens have seperated.Samsung GCJ552W 55 in. Convergence will not completely align in all 9 quadrants. Has gotten progressivly worse over several months. Numerous shadows and blurred view. Had two TV repair men out who were useless and never followed up to fix the problem. How do I fix this.

Hi there
It sounds like one or more of the lamps are ready for going because the convergence will not completely align.
Good luck

I have Convergence issue . Can't adjust The allngment crosses on screen no control over the jog button .


This is a common problem. Its called a convergence failure. You can get all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com

Your TV will commonly have one or more of the following symptoms:
  • Screen Looks 3D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted
  • No Audio or Video

You can see some examples and find a fix here...

I have a Zenith approximately 8 years old. The color is not aligned and the convergence/alignment feature on the remote control seems to do nothing. Can a service tech do an in home alignment?


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • 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.

Here is a quick test....

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

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

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

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc

I have a Zenith 50" rear projection tv. I recently noticed horizontal lines that crawl towards the top of the screen. It is not all the time, and not very noticeable--just annoying right now. Can this be...


It may be problem with the TV but I've seen cable boxes cause this as well. Try unplugging the box and running the cable directly to the TV's RF input. If the lines are gone, its the cable box.
