"Perfect Focus" problem on Samsung HCN4727W

I had the usual Samsung convergence problems on a Samsung HCN4727W5S/XAA rear projection TV. The STKs and resistors were bad. I replaced the convergence board and the convergence issues were almost completely gone. The user accessible red and blue convergence and perfect focus all worked fine. The only problem was a very small 1/16” red convergence line on a small part of the user convergence screen.

I downloaded the service manual; then was able to enter the service menu and service convergence modes and adjust the convergence slightly to eliminate the slight red mis-convergence.

I do not have a screen jig, but used two pieces of string taped to the TV to mark both the edge sensors and the center of the screen. The convergence grid is square with no distortions and the center lines line up precisely with the sensors and screen center.

I was careful to save the RBG adjustments during the service menu convergence procedure and did the “Perfect Focus” from the service menu at the end of the convergence procedure.

The “Perfect Focus” within the service menu does not seem to finish and save the settings. It goes through 100% a few times, the RBG lines pass through the plane of the sensors, the numbers adjust, but the process ends with a white screen instead of reverting back to the convergence grid as the service manual seems to say it should. I exit the convergence procedure with the “s-mode” key as the service manual instructs.

When the TV is back on in the normal user mode, the picture looks good but the “Perfect Focus” function no longer works. I just get the “no sensor data” error message. I assume this is due to the “Perfect Focus” function in the service mode not finishing and saving the data.

The “Perfect Focus” did work after replacing the board before I started fine tuning the convergence in the service mode.

Any ideas is to what I am doing wrong?

Re: "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

Samsung HCN5529W 55in Rear Projection can't Perfect Focus

hello What you have is a convergence problem. There is 2 modules inside your set that aligns the colors to have the same geometry and superposed . It is a common problem in rear projection tvs ,
You don`t have to worry about your blue tube , i`m sure it is perfectly fine, it just needs to be aligned through the convergence circuit.
Most often the problem is with those convergence modules that are faulty and need to be replaced.
Hope this will help good luck

This is an indication that the STK is bad. The PC board should be marked to indicate which one if for the green.

My samsung projection tv #pcl5415r don't want to perform perfect focus adjustments

perfect focus functions are based on service mode setup...or factory settings. if the alignment of these setting are loss then the unit wont perfect focus. does the unit have a complete loss of convergence. a complete loss of convergence indicate possible failure of convergence amps.
