Re: Convergence

Ok, well this is an indication that your convergence board is having some change since you can move all 3 and if all 3 are twisted then you can not narrow to one color, then I would suggest having amps changed. It's probably resistors also need changing. It will only get worse as you go on.

Samsung HDTV 1080I-Model#HCP4363W-Convergence Problem

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...

Convergence problem???

there is a way of lining the colours up in the service menu. to get into the service menu pres the "mute" button and then hold down the "mute" and "menu" button and the same time. this has to be done quickly. you then navigate to a screen which will have black square's on it. you will see the colurs that need to be lined up. it the colours wont line up. you will have to replace the convergience IC's. hope this helps you
