Samsung 52" rear projection tv convergence problem?

I have a Samsung 52" rear projection TV. 2 days ago I turned on the set and my color was messed up. I pulled up the menu and checked the convergence. It was OK. The program on the TV was playing but the colors
were not right and I had double images or ghost. The best example was when the TV and show came on the program rating box appeared at the top left of the screen. I beleive it normally is black. On my set the box was green and then under it and another identical box was red. Obviousley it should have been one box not 2. And the top quarter of the picture screen was very greenish and below it like a curtain draping from a quarter way down on the left side of the screen to the top right part of the screen was a reddish line and below the line everythign was red and green and very shadowy. The model number is PCK5315R. SVC Model is PCK5315RX/xAA. below that is AC120V 60HZ 285W. The TV was made in April 2001. Do you know what the problem is and can I fix it myself????
My email address Russ@SEMonline.com.
Thank you

We have a RCA D52W23 rear projection TV. Now the color looks like it is in 3D. A friend has the same problem a few years ago and bought a part on line and fixed it themselves. What is the part and where...


projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

My hcp4752 started smelling hot now the colors are


It looks like you have a problem on your convergence panel. Look for burned resistors near the STK-* IC's. One or more of the STK-* IC's may be bad. When the resistors get hot they smell but so do the IC's. You can replace the bad parts or you should be able to replace the entire panel then go thru a convergence alignment.

Mixed colors and separation of colors


Common problem known as convergence. The most common reason is the failure of convergence ics. these ics fail all the time because there big and get fairly hot. there is a possiblity that it can be reconverged if the convergence cuircit is not damaged
