Question about Samsung HCL5515W 55" Rear Projection Television
I just got one of these sets and it will turn on, but "no signal connected.." is not level across screen and when in the menu you can tell that the RGB guns are not lined up, there is also some vertical bowing of certain colors. I think red is the furthest out of alignment, seems like someone might have messed with adjustments.
Also the set will turn itself off sometimes just whenever, other times it seems to turn off when you run the perfect picture adjustment. I am an ET but have never dealt with a rear projection TV before.
Any ideas what I should check first?
Thanks JB I have a model number #hcl5515w samsung 55 inch and the color adjuster wont work at all on the green and the blue is a little off too what do i need to do??
This is a convergence problem that should be relatively easy to resolve, I am assuming that the set is new to you rather than new. If new, it should be under warranty and if opened would void the warranty. If new to you and you can solder, you should be able to fix this. First, realize that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged. Locate the convergence ICs (large black ICs attached to a heatsink and marked STKxxx) and resolder the pins. That may resolve the problem. If not, then replace the ICs. Check the area for small valued resistors that may be defective as well.
Keep us posted.
