Picture Makes Me Dizzy

The picture has a curvature to it. It is great in the smack middle but as it moves to the sides the colors seperate and looks like I am seeing in third dementions! Can you help me? People told me to adjust the mirrors inside. I opened the back to find only one huge mirror connected to the back panel and the three color lenses on the bottem. So now I am clueless!!! Thanks for your time. DeAnn

Re: Picture Makes Me Dizzy

I changed the convergence board but the flash focus only gets to 37%. The blue will not work. I can at least watch the tv without it making me sick, but the words are still hard to read. Is there something else I can do?

Re: Picture Makes Me Dizzy

Everybody here seems to have basically the same problem so I will write a general fix for these Samsungs. First what you got is known as Convergence failure, A Ic or resistor, fuse or some other component has failed in the convergence circuit. So finding the service menu and trying to align the colors or spinning magnets on the CRT’s or a real bad idea of tipping a CRT or mirror would be the equitant of ripping the transmission out of your car because it had a flat tire. When the convergence fails no adjustment will bring it back, and if you do one of these stupid things then you have two problems. Now most of these Samsungs have an easily replicable board that all the convergence amplifiers are on. This can be found by removing the back and seeing if there is a board about 9 X 5 inches big and mounted to the CRT mounts, there will be 5 connector to this board. Now if your set does not have this board and instead has the two convergence Ic’s (these are about the size of a playing card and have the numbers STK392-040 on them) mount down on a board below and to the right ( this is known as the deflection board) this repair will not work for you. Instead you will need to component level repair the convergence circuit. But if you do have this separate convergence board the repair is fairly straight forward. Go to or some other supplier and order BP95-00142E this is the convergence board. This board has been crossed several times through the years but this is the current version. Now once you get this board simply replace it making sure to get al the connector back in there original spot. The fire up the set and run Flash focus and for about 95% this will fix the set

RCA rear projection tv picture bowed to middle. Red Green Blue colors have been seperated on screen.

If I had to guess I would say it's either the DLP chip or the prism. Simply put the lamp lights the DLP chip which directs the light into a prism and then onto the TV screen. The prism or prisms are responsible for aligning the colors correctly. The DLP chip is essentially a million little moving mirrors which direct light

If you're at all comfortable with electronics you might want to open the TV up to take a look. You might get lucky and find something obviously wrong with the TV. Sometimes adhesives melt and parts slip out of place. If your DLP chip is blown there isn't much you can do. You're probably right that this would cost a lot to fix and not be worth it.

Sitting here watch tv and suddenly the picture went warped and discolored. Picture looks like the colors are seperated. blue green and red.

Your TV has convergence chips that need to be replaced by a tech. These keep tour red green and blue lights in sync with one another in order to give you a sharp color picture. When they fail your colors seperate.

On the left side it has a 3 d picture like the colors are seperating (green, and red) the middle and right side is perfect

There are two common problems with these sets.

Problem #1) Convergence

  • Screen Looks 3D
  • Colors wont align
  • Video may look distorted
Problem #2 CRT Fluid has clouded over. Symtoms
  • Dull looking video
  • White looking video
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking video

You can see some examples and find a fix here...

My tv the bolbs have moved out of place

I am assuming you mean bulbs. Typically the bulbs do not just move out of place on there own. Did the tv take a sharp impact or did some one hit the tv hard enough to move it. The bulbs are held in place with plastic sleeves that are typically held in place with 6 to 10 screws depending on the model. Your local repair shop may be able to assist you in renting the allignment tools for your bulbs. Typically the convergence chip goes and it gives the TV the appearance of the bulbs slipping and makes the tv look like the colors have seperated. One of the colors seems to have shifted to one side and doesn't line up with the rest of the picture. So check with your local dealer or write to the company and see ig your convergence chip is available and if you can rent the allignment tool.

Dark picture

you know it sounds like the same problem i had....
look this is something you can try.... "turn the tv off and unplugg it!!!"'ll need to take out the lower front part of the tv......(where the speakers are to be exact) on each lower end you will find 2 screws..Be careful it will open to the side and there are many wires, i suggest you mark them to know where to put them back...then right in the middle there will be a black cover with about 5 screws..take them out....and look at the very bottom you'll see a thing with 6 pegs....the top ones are for the screen "DO NOT TOUCH THEM"...the ones on the bottom are for the adjust them...the left one it's for blue, the middle one it's for green and the last one it's for red...

I had the same problem after i moved....and after i re adjust that the tv looks super...
i hope that helps..:P

Picture problem

If this is a ctc 195 chassis then your likely problem is the convergence power supply that is mounted above the main board and the dynamic convergence board. On the board is an IC (usually) that can be changed: STK 730-010 I believe is the correct can check the number, If it has a single transistor on the metal heat sink, I would suggest changing the whole board. Has only two plugs: one on each end of the board.
