Question about Samsung HC-P4241W 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Samsung hc-p4241w - No picture

The tv switches on, I can see the red power button flashing. There is no melodic chime when it does start up though like it used to. the screen stays black no light from the back of the tv via the colour cannons. There is sound. I have a Sat receiver and a dvd player plugged into a home theater receiver which is then pluged into the back of the TV. I also have an X-Box console plugged directly into the TV. I started getting this problem a couple of months ago. the TV Picture would not come on. When I left it for a day or two I would get the picture back. Now I can't get the picture at all for the last three weeks. Any idea what the problem may be and if I can repair it myself? Thanks.

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...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV2_bing.gif may have one or more of the following symptoms....

Samsung HC-P4741W has no picture and no sound


Doubt it is the convergence board. It is in shutdown mode caused by an overcurrent or overvoltage condition. It will take some troubleshooting to pinpoint the part(s) that are defective. Could also be a cracked solder joint.

Samsung HC-P4241W 42 in. Rear Projection CRT aging


First off, do you not know Internet etiquette? Caps are considered yelling or shouting! So please! head You have the typical convergence failure of the convergence correction IC's. They BOTH need to be replaced. If you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
