Samsung HCJ552W convergence out before warmup

I've noticed since connecting a HD DVR to the DTV input that my convergence lines on the left are vastly out of sync for 10-30 minutes. It seems after the TV warms up the convergence comes back in to sharp. Does anyone have an answer for this?

Re: Samsung HCJ552W convergence out before warmup

If set has a few years on it, the convergence may be going out.

Can't hook up hd

I would be surprised if the model listed here has a HDMI input--it should only have a single component HD input marked as DTV.

How can i get 1080 without the remote

The only HD input for this set is the Component input on the rear marked DTV.

You must connect a HD signal to that input.

On front of set press the input (or Device) until you reach the DTV input.

How do i get 1080i, my tv shows im only in 480i. i think i might have it hooked up incorrect. my other tv of another brand is much newer so all i did was connect the hdmi cable from the tv to the cable box...


Your TV will display all High Definition signals as 1080i True HDTV™ and all standard definition signals will be displayed as 480p.

Component Inputs 1-2
These inputs can be used for the connection of A/V equipment with component video outputs, such as a DVD player or external HDTV receiver. Please see Appendix B for signal compatibility.
Input DTV (480i/480p/1080i)
This input is used to connect an external DTV receiver, and can be configured for YPrPb and RGB plus H&V signal types.

As a special feature, you have the ability to adjust the red and blue light beams in reference to the fixed green light beam. This process is called convergence. There are two separate memories for convergence. One, for SD 480i/480p signals; the other for HD 1080i signals. SD convergence should be adjusted while watching an SD source and HD convergence should be adjusted while watching an HD source.

Wide Expand: Enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This Expand format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars on HD broadcasts of 4:3 images with black bars. Available for analog 1080i, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

This input is compatible with most standard DTV and satellite receivers with component video (YPbPr) outputs. Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i/480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Please check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.
This input is compatible with some DTV receivers using RGB with "separate H and V sync". Compatible DTV signals are SDTV 480i, 480p, and HDTV 1080i. All other DTV signals, such as 720p, need to be converted by the DTV receiver to one of the compatible signal types. Industry standards for DTV RGB signals (systems, synchronization, timing, and signal strengths) are not currently established. These inputs will not be compatible with all DTV receivers that offer RGB, HV outputs. RGB, HV signals with less than 5 cables are not compatible.
If your DTV receiver offers both DTV component video signals and DTV RGB, HV signals, we suggest you use the DTV component video signals. Check the DTV receiver specifications before connecting.

Mitsubishi WS65809 HD input (DTV) not working correctly. I replace the convergence chips in this TV and was making adjustments in the service menu. Everything was lined up and working great. The HD input...

All these sets do have a hard reset---not the reset button on the front of the set---it will return the set to the factory original condition it was when new in the box--it will not affect the convergence as that is stored in a separate unit--the DCU (digital convergence unit).

It is accessed with an original MITSUBISHI remote.

You can try it if you want:


menu-0,1,7,0 enter

There are 3 hidden menus in the set--this is the Option menu

You will see either reset or option etc and highlight it with the remote and hit enter. Set will shut off and should come back on channel three in the air band--any labels you placed on inputs will be gone and set will be in air band--you will if on cable have to change it to cable band and auto program etc.

Let me know what happens and if you have questions I am here to help.

No digital reception with HD ready TV.

Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

Can't seem to add HD channels to Mitsubishi WS-65513

You need to run an external antenna feed to the air DTV input jack, bottom left. You can use your loop out if you already have an antenna connected to your antenna A input jack. Create a DTV device, then run your antenna setup for DTV.

Mitsubishi WS-65315 plug in HD comp shows as 480i


In the input assignment menu make sure that the DTV (the only 1080 input on this tv) is set to Y/Pb/Pr and see if that fixes your issue with at least the HD-DVR.

BTW- the HDMI information "1080i HD can only be selected if TV has HDMI inputs". is not correct.
