Re: Samsung HDTV 1080i blue congernce/loud pop

One of the Convergence IC's most likely shorted and that is the pop you heard. Is best to replace both and check micro fuses supplying + & - dc voltage to the chips. Also check the resistors in front of the IC's as they discolor or burn & change value.

I have a Samsung Rear Projection TV with an HDTV 1080i Monitor. I know the convergence is messed up because the blue would not move when I tried to adjust it on the menu. So, then I tried to make it

You will need to replace both convergence Ics and the pico fuses that blow when the Ics fail. You can get the replacement Ics and pico fuses from they also provide free tech support to help you install them

Convergence panasonic HDTV 1080i bbe hi definition

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png

2003 Samsung HDTV 1080i 42" wide screen has just developed picture problems distorted and red. Almost looks 3D. MODEL NO.:HCN4226WX/XAC SERIAL NO.: 37083CEX400297E

This is a convergence problem and can easily be fixed either by resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs or by replaceing them if they prove to be defective. Can you solder? Do you feel confident in replacing these parts?
Keep us posted.

Double vision on my samsung HDTV 1080i

If one or more of the colors, red, green or blue have separated from each other and you can`t correct the problem using the convergence procedure as described in the users manual, that would indicate you have a convergence problem. Bad solder connections on the convergence output chips are common. If the set had a rough ride down the stairs while moving, that may have facilitated in exposing a preexisting condition. However, the most likely cause is the natural failure of one of the convergence output chips and or related components and not the move. The fix is to have a qualified technician address the problem. This is not a do it yourself job.

Wierd problem

HD projection televisions have seperate convergence alignment for 480i-1080i thus your problem when you use your XBOX360. The "No sensor data" that shows up is due to the fact that the sensors need to be initilized after doing the convergence in 1080i mode. You will probably need a technician to do the alignment because if it is out that much then a template needs to be used to get it corrected. For now you can put your XBOX in a lower display mode until repairs are done.
