If colors are skewed, go into the customer menu and select convergence--if red or blue is wacked out and will not move--the convergence chips this set uses need to be replaced.

The 43FDX20B model uses two of the STK-392-120 chips and is fairly easy to repair for this problem.

If you have some skill and can solder I can tell you how to fix it---you can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for under 13 dollars plus shipping.

Most shops are going to get 300 or more for this repair so if you or someone you know can do it you can save the set and a lot of money--

What it involves is replacing both chips and any bad resistors around them that got taken out---easy to check.

Let me know if you have questions or want instructions--I am here to help.

The sound is ditorted on my speaker, how do I fix it?


If you have an amp connected to the system you can turn down the power on the back of it this should reduce your distortion at high levels, you may have to do this more than once to get the right set up.

Screen has major digital ditortion (green lines, heavy contrast)


Personally i haven't had this problem but it seems to be that it's either the video board or the dmd board.. if you select the service menu and it looks like the rest of the screen, it's the videpo board, if not it's the dmd board

When recording and playing back the view screen is distorted with alternating lines.


If there is no problem when you play back on a different camera or computer, then the fault concerns LCD ribbon cable or lcd controller circuit on main pcb.

If the recorded image is also distorted on computer and different camcorder, then you have a faulty ccd sensor.
Also wiring problem and pcb fault sometimes can cause ditorted picture, in that case the problem is usually a kind of dirturbance and does not happen all the time.

The in my HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop is ditorted but when I hold from the top it will work?


I think your problem is LCD. To make sure, try entering the bios when your pc starts. You can enter bios by pressing F10. If within the bios setup utility, your problem remains same then yoy need to change the LCD.

Samsung HCL473w picture distortion


Hi,

Check out the Convergence Gallery. If you see the colored outlines or color shading as in the Gallery, you have a convergence problem.

This requires the replacement of the defective IC or ICs and any damaged or smoked resistors. Usually there is little alignment required after the repair. If you play with all the adjustments before the fix, hours may be spent re-aligning.

Don't monkey with it.

This is a delicate and difficult repair. If not done by someone with some electronic repair experience, the TV will likely end up as junk or cost considerably more for a tech to fix the damage done.

If you live in Calgary, call me. If elsewhere, find a competent tech.

Is the sound there when this happens but is distorted. Is the pic blacked out or is it greying out with lines and twisting?? Need more info please as if its blacking out and the sound goes with it it may be going into shutdown. If the pic is getting kinda greyish with it twisting and the sound is there and ditorted then the tuner could be bad
