Re: self focus

Go into the menu, then go down to "Function", then go to "Convergence". You can then go to the "Red" or "Blue" option and adjust each seperately. This will have to be done with your remote control. Just follow the on-screen instructions.....


Hope this helps you out!

The left side of the screen is failing. The green and red no longer match up. It starts in the center of the screen, and gets worse as it goes to the left. The right side doesn't appear affected. I've...

You have a convergence problem for sure. This can be a pretty complicated repair. It takes more than just replacing parts. You will have an electrical service menu adjustment that will have to be done so that magic focus will work properly. You may want to contact a repair shop. Thanks

Samsung model HCN4727W

I had the same problem with mine until I figured out it was from the auto self focus. Normally it should be done with a picture that remains constant or close to it, or else the focus gets screwed up. Go to menu and setup, then turn the self focus off. If you look on the remote and slide the lower portion down you will see a self focus button. My suggestion is to put a DVD in and hit the pause button and then press the self focus button and wait until its finished.

Blue blurry on perfect focus

Did you try the manual lense focus in the back? There is a wing nut on it and it's pretty easy to change. You just need someone to look at the TV and tell you when it looks good. Additionally for the Blue tube, it's on the far left. You take off the bottom panel in the back to get to this area. Good Luck.

"check factor data" using self focus


Not at all familiar with your tv but this sort of message comes up if you have altered eeprom settings while in engineers mode.
To put it right you will need the work shop manual to know how to reset the settings.

Maybe A tech on these forums can help you out.

Perfect Focus

Perfect "FOCUS" is a misnomer.Convergence is the real issue.Enter servicer mode--perform accurate convergence alignment procedure--activate perfect focus as last step to 100% alignment.If you have a High-Definition source,check procedure for that.
