First off, do you not know Internet etiquette? Caps are considered yelling or shouting! So please! head You have the typical convergence failure of the convergence correction IC's. They BOTH need to be replaced. If you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck

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. 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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith 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 - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV2_bing.gif may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Hi, my tv hc-p4241w was ok but one day, the picture in the screen become wide and then I saw smoke from the rear panel. I switched off the TV, and I found that the C407 have exploded, there's a Diode...


Look to see if any coolant fluid has leaked from any of the CRT's. This is a common cause of multiple component failures in these models. Look real close at the CRT mounting bracket, the wires coming from the CRT's and look at the particle board below to see if you can see any staining or puffed up wood particles. My experience with the Samsung bds is when you have a multiple compoment failure due to fluid leakage it is best to replace the boards instead of component level repair because other components will fail at a later time. Coolant fluid is real hard to spot since it is ultra clear. Hope this helps.

HX-P4241W appears yellow. Left and Right of screen are yellow


Yellow is the lack of blue. It can happen when you are running your contrast - which is your overall light level - too high.

Try turning down your contrast. On CRT tech, contrast should always be run at half what the factory allows as full, on the user controls. Full up is what calibrators call Torch Mode, and is NOT the way to get performance to be in the linear operating range of CRT tech.

If your sides are more yellow than your middle, your set may need lenstriping. Mild yellow on the sides is not uncommon, and usually not noticed. But heavy yellow on the sides would indicate that the blue image needs work on white field uniformity.

Yellow is the lack of blue, in CRT tech.
