My color is all out of whack on my SP-55W3HF Samsung. When I run the convergence alignment, I find that my red will not align. The red display markers are also bowed. Any ideas?

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.

I have this tv and it took me 6 months to figure this out thoroughly.
1) Call PartStore.Com and order two convergence chips. The product number is STK392-040. They are 55 dollars a peice but it is so worth it. Sears wanted to charge me 500 to fix it.
2) After you get your chips, you will have to removed the back of your tv and TAKE OUT the deflection board- one in middle with red and white wire coming off of it. REFER to this website: http://www.ehow.com/how_4575598_yourself-projection-tv-repair-convergence.html
There is a picture step by step on the internet, but I cant find it right now.
3) After taking it out you WILL NEED thermal heat compound (radioshack-8 dollars) and a soldering set. Its easier if you know someone who solders. Also if you dont, check with your local university- their engineering/tech depart does that for free.Just bring them the detached board and chips and tell them.
4) After the new chips are soldered on, hook it back up, turn on tv and VOILA ....happiness.
Important- there is a small round magnet on the board behind the red wire....MAKE SURE you dont lose that....it keeps your picture within width on screen.

Our tv just started having a fuzzy image and the auto focus function aborts during the red color alignment. is there a manual alignment I can do to fix it.


What does this fuzzy image look like? Does it have ghosting shadows. Of course it is possible to align red manually from the convergence menu. But first lets confirm that it is indeed a convergence related problem.

Sp 55w3hf Convergence


Some TVs do use three ICs, one for each colour. These ICs are likely all identical. There could be fuses blown. Fuses can look just like resistors. A manual points them out or they are shown on the board as F101, or ICP 101 or CP101 or the like. Fuses usually affect ALL the colours at once, so I am looking for the third IC.

Hi. My Sony Videoscope XBR's Convergence Allignment


I happen to share this same problem. The alignment of the gridlines on the standard convergence panel are completely abnormal, and if I attempt to auto-adjust the TV, it flashes different colors on the sides of the screen , and then turns off the convergence settings.

I have a Samsung SP-55W3HF and today a blue shadow starts to appear on the TV. What is the problem with the TV. Has something get broken?


It sounds like a convergence issue. Are you able to try the convergence built into the tv? If that doesn't work you will need to have a professional come out and align the color guns. Also it is always possible there is a more serious problem with internal components. If you need help finding a qualified repair tech. in your area let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

Covergence out of alignment on 1/4 Vertical left side of screen


You need to manually adjust the alignment:
On remote, press Menu to get to the main menu
Then arrow down to "ADVANCED FEATURES"
Then press "enter"
Then Arrow down to "CONVERGENCE" and press "enter"
"Red Convergence" should be highlighted
Press "enter"
You now have Green, Red, and Blue overlapping crosses.
If Red is out of whack, use arrows to align
To toggle to blue (and back to red), press "VIDEO"
Then align blue cross
Once the crosses look aligned, and nice and white, press "AUDIO"
This will bring up the Advanced Convergence screen
This is a grid of the same overlapping colors
You have control over the Red and Blue
If Green is very out of whack, you'll need a repairman…
While the "target" is flashing, you can move it around the screen with the arrows
Place it over an intersection to adjust, then press "enter"
Now the "target" is steady (not flashing), and you can use the arrows move your color
When it's aligned, press "enter" again
Now "target is flashing, and you can go to the next square.
You cannot adjust every intersection.
Some areas need to be adjusted via the adjacent intersection
When you're happy with color you're working on,
Press "video" while target is flashing to change to the other color
Repeat the above (blue is much harder to see and adjust for me…)
When you're happy with the entire grid, start hitting "Menu"
Each press brings you back out one menu level, until you are out of them
Once you're used to the process, it should take no more than a minute or two.
