Question about Samsung HCM5525W 55" Rear Projection Television

Samsung HDTV top of screen is turning inwards

The problem with my television started as a line that went from one side to the other and now it is starting to turn on the top, so all of the images at the top are not aligned with one another. I have now noticed that it is starting on the bottom of the screen as well. It is fine when you turn the TV on but as you watch and it gets warm this happens.

Distorted Screen for RCA HD56w66

convergence is the problem. first question do you have convergence in the customer setup menu. if you do not it could be a special small fuse if you do have "convergence" in the setup menu then you most likely have a convergence power board issue. and generally they are replaced. in our shop such board replacement average 124 labor and about 100 for part. if the fuse bout 15 for part and 80 for labor. there are solder connection that cause the blown fuse

Left side of television just started having a shadowing problem?

I have the same problem and was told by a technician that I need to replace the light engine. Probably around $ 700.00.

Sudden discoloration, ghosting, bowed horizontal lines in top and bottom of picture

The convergence ICs probably have a cracked solder joint on the foil side of the circuit board. Re-flowing the the solder would help. I will always replace the convergence ICs when doing this job. The labor remains the same and you will have to pay a few extra bucks for the parts. To fix this yourself, you will need to be able to identify the two convergence ICs, have a basic knowledge of electronics and be able to use a soldering iron. You will also have to do an alignment through the service menu.
