Question about Samsung PCN5425R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung 54" Projection TV (PCN5425R)

I was recently watching tv and all of a sudden the picture went blurry and then shut off on me. I thought maybe it was a fluke, turned it back on and it turned off within a second or two. I unplugged the tv for about a minute, tried to turn the tv back on and the red light on the front blinked a few times and then stayed solid. I called an electroni place and they said to count the blinks and it might offer some info on what the problem was, I counted, I think 6 at one point, but now it stayed solid. I am hoping this is a problem that I can fix myself, since the place I need to repair it at is an hour away and I only have a car....just won't fit. If anyone could help, I would appreciate it.

Sears does inhome service, if you do try to fix it, there is usually a board mounted to the back of the tubes (above the others), if it has this convergence board, try unplugging the red connector with the blue wire and turning set back on, if it powers with a 3d looking picture, you have a bad convergence module. Other than that you may want to call a repairman.

I have a samsung dlp Model no. Pcn5425r The problem I am having is that the picture is all distorted with curved edges and blurry doubled images. I thought it was a convergence problem so I replaced it...

You don't have a color wheel in this model. There is probably a fuse blown that you missed or a resistor in the circuit outside the convergence IC's (STK 392-040). Did you press the perfect focus in the convergence part of the menu?

Your convergence ic’s have failed, this is a common problem with most all projection tv’s, the repair is involved. I suggest in your case calling a local repair shop.

Convergence problems

Did you buy the board new or used? It could also be your convergence Ics and not the convergence that is causing the shutdown . The convergence ICs are not located on the convergence Board.

Samsung Rear Projection screen went out.

Where did you purchase the convergence amps previously? Your set takes two STK392-040 Sanyo amps and there is a high probability that that is the problem here again. The convergence amps for these units are really critical and chinese knock-offs are abundant. Is it possible that you didn't get Sanyo originals?
Another thought is what about the heat sink used when they were installed? Did you do the installation or have it done professionally?

I doubt seriously that unplugging the unit will have any affect.

Convergence: concave picture with double image

An easy replacement on the Samsubgs is to replace the convergence board. If you are doing this yourself it is just a plug in board. Here is a link for the part number and how to purchase it.
