Question about Samsung HCN553W 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I tried to mess around with the...

I did try messing around with the color settings, the coverting settings, they all do affect the tv but does not seem to make the ziggy zaggy lines get worse or better. Is there anything else that I could do at home before I call in someone that charges me a lot of money just to look at the TV. One other thing is that it seems to have a lot of yellow color around the boarder of the tv. Please help!

You will need to replace or have replaced the two convergence amp IC's on the convergence board in this set. They are the STK-392-040 IC's and the original replacement numbers are available at MCM electronics. Go here to see.http://www.mcminone.com/search.asp?keyword=STK392-040&btnSubmit.x=16&btnSubmit.y=11&btnSubmit=GO Or you can call PTS corp, as they have rebuilt complete convergence boards or can rebuild yours for you at 1-800-844-7871 Good Luck

Hello. i have a Wii. System works fine except it is not in color. i cant find the problem. how can i get the came in color?


Try messing around with your rgb wires that run from your tv to your wii. I had this problem once upon a time & mine were just loose. If that doesnt work, try picking up a set at best buy & giving them a whirl. If they work, great, if not, return em. Hope this helps.

When moving the 51pw9363 will the color be affected by weather and movement, TV's color was good and then moved to the basement now the color is all messed up tried the convergence seem to have no effect


Usually temperature will not have a big affect but high humidity will. I would suspect the convergence amps have possibly developed loose solder joints from the move. They are mounted on heavy duty heat sinks that can move a lot and crack joints. Hard to say. Thanks for using fixya.

LG Flatiron monitors.1st one on Dell pc works great. 2nd one in same household to Compaq pc still flashes faint pink on parts that should be white.


Probably just some color balance is of. Reset white to something different on the compaq. Try downloading nvidia-settings and see what happens when you mess with color balances. Mess around with some settings til it looks right, or see if you can reset the white balance to a different preset on the monitor's menu

Toshiba 32a43 32' picture garbled mess


If you can get the tv to display the blue blackground(usually happens when there is no antenna or cable feed to tv) check to see if the whole screen is a solid blue, if it shows discolored areas around the screen then you might have to "demag" the screen. See if you can rent a demad coil from a tv shop and with tv on turn the coil in circular movements all over the front of screen till blue is solid.good luck!

Color


see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness

Color messed up on tv since lightning strike


your tv may have ben magnetized by the lightning strike.
tv's have an automatic degaussing circuit that demagnetizes
the pix tube when the set is turned on. this degaussing circuit
may not be working or magnetism may have been too strong for
the internal degaussing to correct.
contact local tv repair shop in your area see if they can manually
degauss your set , it should be a min. service charge around $25.

Samsung HC-P4752W No Color


Do not automatically think you need to go into the service menu. I bet you 100 to 1 that you pulled out a plug or a connector somewhere OR one is not seated into the plug all the way. If the set worked with color before you messed with it, there is not a problem in the service menu. The service menu is not the fix all thing. it is there to make fine alignments and adjustments, and as a matter of fact, messing with a service menu even with the service manual is very dangerous. I have seen peeps ruin TV sets by messing around with the service menu alignments. STAY out of these alignments. they are not going to fix a problem that all of a suddenly comes up. Repair the problem in the circuit first. Good Luck

Slanted picture


Your deflection yoke (a coil around the neck of the picture tube) must have gotten turned. Your can turn the picture upside down by rotating this coil. If your set is in warranty, you should return it. When this "yoke" is adjusted the color is affected too. If you try this yourself you'd void the warranty and mess up your color. Stargazer
