Blurred/double vision Samsung HDTV 1080i projection

The screen has blurred/double vision and it looks like it is the color red that is off. Also at the top and bottom on the screen there is about a 2 inch wide half moon that is black. It is like the screen will not adjust properly and neither will the colors. I could care less about the HDTV stuff I just want the picture to look right

    I have a Samsung PCL545R 54" with similar problems. The screen displays all three colors slightly offset (shifted) from each other, which gives the a 'blurry' picture. Also has what appears to be a convergence problems, with half-moons on both the top and bottom of the screen. The colors also show up while watching older b&w tv shows. I have tried the various settings to try to adjust the color and picture with no luck. This condition basically happened overnight - was working fine and than two days ago, the colors and convergence issues started.



    Is the fix for this the same as mentioned in the response - the two IC's and possible resistors?



    Thanks

Your convergence ICs are bad and maybe the two resistors right next to them. This is an easy and inexpensive repair if you can solder. A repair shop will run about 400.00 The parts are readily available for about 10.00 each you will need two ICs STKXXX-XXX
Look inside your set for a large aluminum heat sink that's where hey are located they will have an STK number like above stamped on them. Those are the part numbers. Let me know what type of TV and model number you have and I can help you locate the proper parts.

Hello tv has warped bottom and top screen on a rear projector samsung and blurred vision with red,green blue colurs not aligned tried to tune to no avail Samsung rear projector tantus sp42w4/42w5


The colors tell me of a convergence IC issue, warped bottom and top tell of another.

see this page on reparing the convergence problem yourself

also compair the before and after pictures to see if this is the other problem your having.

Then you have another fault, which im not completely sure of right now. I will look into it.

Double vision


If you are printing color and you have color blurring like streaks. it mean the registration of the colors are off. Usually using the internal cleaning function from the panel will clear this up. You should restart the copier as well. If it continues check all the feed rollers.

This is a convergence problem and is either bad connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can repair this yourself. Let me know if you wish to repair this and I can provide you with additional details.

RED AND GREEN DOUBLE AND BLUR PICTURE HELP PLEASE


You have a convergence problem. Components are shorted out and must be replaced. Unless you're a technician, there's really nothing you can do at this point.
