Question about Samsung HCM422W 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture good in middle, blurry on sides

Basically, that's what's wrong.  The picture is perfect in the middle but blurry on both sides.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Have not tried anything yet.  My children often move the tv to hook up their video games.  Could this have loosened something?

Re: Picture good in middle, blurry on sides

Sounds like a a convergence problem.............does your tv have an auto-convergence program in the set-up menu?

A bad connection somewhere--when it happens if picture is 3d look in menu for convergence and call up the grid of lines--if they are not perfect you have convergence issue which usually requires parts to be replaced.

In this set sometimes the chips will become flaky and convergence will jump in and out.
