Samsung SP42W5HFX colour misalignment

A couple of days ago my nephew (little git!) hammered on the screen of my tv and now the colours are out of alignment. It seems to be mainly the red which goes off to the right with a bowed effect. I've read a few posts on here which refer to the convergence board, which I have seen advertised for around £70, is this easy to replace? The TV is a few years old now so I don't want to spend too much putting it right... I paid £1600 for it 5-6 years ago, but you can buy new now for £500!!! I had an engineer look at it, but he said as an independent Samsung won't sell him parts or provide a manual! Any info/suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Samsung SP42W5HFX colour misalignment

Hi. Did the ngineer say that it was problem with convergence pcb ? To be honest the lil git hitting the screen is more likely to damage the screen than convergence. Try going in to the menu then convergence & adjust red & blue to try & get the crosses white with no coloured halo around. Post on here with results your model of tv is pretty straight forward I work for an indepedent tv repair shop the manuals are easy to get hold of thats if he even needs one. Chris..

The colour has orange and yellow tones I cant remove

Have you tried cleaning the screen? I smoke cigars, so I have to go around compressed-airing and wiping stuff down constantly. Screens look yellow/orange if I let it go too long.

Panasonic pt-61lcx66 green screen

i had the exact same problem on my samsung 65" hdtv slp rear projection tv. i called a couple of places to get a quote and they all told me one of the lights burnt out. i got frustrated and left it on for 5 days and now the green colour is gone and its perfect again.
i think it was either very cold or i had let moisture get in to the circuit boards.
i hope this also works for you.

My tv has lost its colour, and its green or yellow sometimes.

Okay that means the other GUNS went out when i refer to guns I mean the other blue and red, they need to be replaced pretty costly but if you value that TV I'd do it.

Colour misalignment and focus

You need a new convergence board. Not an easy fix, sorry.

Pink colour everywhere

Assuming all power supplies are OK, you most likely have a bad CRT grid, and that respective (red) tube must be replaced. I'm sorry that it went that way, as this repair is not cheap....accordianman

Bulbs blown in samsung sp42w5hfx

Its hard to tell without actually knowing where the smoke came from. I doubt that any of the CRT's (bulbs as you say) caused the issue.

Samsung HCN473W 47 in. Rear Projection can't turn on

i know this is a old problem but in case anyone in the future here has this problem, the problem lies in your convergence board ,mainly the stk`s are shot ,you can buy new STK`s for around 15 to 20 dollars and then will need some one to take old ones of and resoldering the new ones on.

anywho if you have this problem unplug or remove your convergence board and then turn on tv and you will see a picture, all colours will be out of convergence but when you put the fixed board back in colours should realign, or you may have to realign a little yourself.

only reason i am posting on this old problem is because was just given this tv samsung hcn473wx/xac for free and decided to fix it and it now works well.
