Question about Samsung PCJ522R 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.

The red color started shadowing and flashing. I tried the convergence, it was fine. Over a few days it grew worse and started flashing red streaks, then the whole screen became red and a loud POP sound and a hot smell came out. The screen went black. Is this a repairable event? The TV repairman is booked out 2 weeks...

It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.

52inch projection screen television has only red and green colors and its difficult to see the picture.


If the picture looks 3d with lines bowed it may be a convergence problem---go into the customer menu and call up convergence and at least look.

Color shadowing on screen


I had similar symptoms about a year ago. Also came on sudden. The red convergence chip had burned out (poor heat sinking on this model Hitachi). Replacing the color convergence chips fixed it. ($50 for parts.) First, however, have you tried the "magic focus" function? That's explained in the manual, which is available online IIRC, but I'd have to look for the link if you need it.

It is unlikely that you can do anything yourself.
It sounds to me that there is a power supply problem that has steadily gotten worse and that cannot be confirmed remotely, it must be done on site by an equipped professional.
