Lost picture and sound On Samsung HCN653W Rear Projection TV

Picture reduced in size from the sides and both picture and sound went off.
From reading some of the comments, it could be either the power supply/switching IC or convergence board. Where are they located?

If the picture is reduced in size all the way around, then you are looking at a power supply issue. That would also explain it shutting down.

Reverse fisheye!!

you are going to need to replace the convergence board assembly. It is available at Also get the service manual, as you will need to do some touchup convergence and reset the perfect focus setup again If you have the technical ability. If you do, great! If you do not, these service menu alighnments can mess up your set, so take no shortcuts. Good Luck
