Question about Samsung PCN5425R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blurry picture Our tv just all of a sudden started showing a very blurry picture. If searching for something to watch, the letters on the menu are very hard to read due to the blurriness. Also - when trying to do the perfect focus, it doesn't work anymore. Any idea what this is and what the cost may be?

I have researched your set. There isn't a date of production that is available so your guesstimate of 11 years old is about where I would place it.

For your specific problem (which is common among old style projection TVs) it's usually the three picture tube or "guns" are showing their age. If it has slowly become more blurry then that is the case. If it has suddenly become blurry then there may be a fixable defect. Judging by it's age I would suspect that your are up for replacing all three tubes in your set. My recommendation is DON'T DO IT. You will be much better off purchasing a newer and preferably flat screen TV. All projection TVs with picture tubes in them typically last between 10,000 and 20,000 hours of operation. At 11 years your set is in that range if you watch an average amount of TV. Enjoy looking for a new set and pick out something that tickles your fancy. Sets have improved vastly with the thin screen technology.

Sony rear projestion TV has blurry picture.

sounds as if your convergence needs to be set. either through the menu on the tv or remote you need to get to the convergence set screen and you need to line up the crosshairs. this usually happens when the tv is moved or bumped.

Blurry tv

Sounds like theres a leaky capacitor in the screen drive circuit. I have seen this problem also be a gassy crt but was able to clean off the grids of the CRT with a crt/rejuvinator. It happens because of low emmissions in the tube and when white is on thats a mix of all the colors, so the tube works harder. I bet when you whatch a movie and the scene changes suddenly to a white or brite scene the pic looks a little washed out. If this is not the case then I aggree with the Pravin and try it on another TV just to be sure .. This is not a repair for a consumer to do, though however it is only a three year old set you stated, so there should be life left in the tube, so im kinda thinking a capacitor is bad. Seek out a yechnician to check this out for you as a TV is not a place to see it you can fix it or to exoeeriment with. Good Luck
