Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue is mis-aligned.

I hope I cab get some help here. My Samsung just started going blurry off and on.. then finally blurry all the time now. When I try to use perfect focus, the blue color is to the far right and does not come back to the middle. Does anyone have a clue to what this might be or is it trashed? I'm a computer tech, so I have no problems replacing parts.. I just wouldn't know what part to replace. Thanks.

You need to replace the two convergence IC's - part# STK392-040. Also look for burnt/discolored resistors near the IC's

Problem with my Olympus FE-230

When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

The head probably needs aligning.

An interum fix is to turn off bi directional printing in the preferences.

This could possibly solve the problem.

Convergence problems

I would suggest the convergence ICs as well as a couple resistors right near the Convergence ICs mst likely. 90 % of the time thats the problem. They are not expensive, if you can solder you can handle it if your careful with your solder and use heat sink compound. The ICs will have a number stamped on them usually STK XXX-XXX on a huge heat sink. The following link will have replacement parts Hope this helps you out
