Try this with TV off Press and Hold CH- VOL- at same Time Hold untill TV comes on.
Then you should be in Factory setting menu, it will either corect the Problem its self or go straight to Service Menu for Techicians.

"Perfect Focus" problem on Samsung HCN4727W

You have a bad sensor, a bad digital convergence board, or the new board is not working correctly. I would start by swaping out the convergence board or exchange it for another one. Good Luck

By admpeek on Jun 25, 2008 When I turn it on the picture is concaved, the color is shifted slightly to one side, and there are 3 skinny lines across the top. I went to convergence menu and clicked it...

You have a blown fuse on the Deflection board FL231 it will be on the righthand side of the flyback Transfomer there are 3 of them in a row they will look like small brown retrangler caps, it will be the one in the middle. I had this problem myself just several months ago, replacing this fuse fixed the problem. That fuse controls the convergance of the 3 CRT's, without it the tv can't converge so you don't get the option in the menu.

My tv went multi colored take it as it looks like a 3d television

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.



Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix


You can see some more examples and find a fix using this link on Fixya

Convergence problem ,Help Please

Something is not right here. Is there any possibility that you can get the circuit designation (Rxxx) of the resistors that were "incorrect"? I am not aware of anything like this that can cause the "memory to be erased". The only memory in that area would be the factory convergence settings which can be modified from the service menu. Please try to supply the resistor IDs and I'll check on this.

My HD52W67 has concaved picture

This is a convergence problem and can be repaired relatively easily. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.

Could you tell me how to get into the service menu of my toshiba rear projection tv?

Most TV repair shops have a warranty 30, 60, or 90 days. Call him back. You probably have a convergence IC failing or a resistor changing value in the green convergence output circuit.

Blue convergence

if the problem as atated only needs rotation, then your need to turn the yolk on the blue tube. you will have to slightly loosen the screw that hold the yolk. rutate it the proper way to get it aligned with the other colors. retighten the screw, but do not over tighten, you do not want to break the tube. ALSO make sure that you do not move the yolk UP or DOWN. if so the blue picture will be resized. down the picture goes smaller, up the picture gets bigger. good luck.
