Question about Samsung HC-P4363W 43 in. TV/DVD Combo

Blue convergence failure.....

I can move the blue up & down in the "Mute>1>8>3" remote convergence menu but limited horizontal movement and the blue is drastically distorted (extreme bow to the right and offset) at the majority of center screen. I can null convergence and everything straightens out (no distortions) but horizontally offset too far to correct. I just received the service manual and they show the convergence board (1 & 2) with surface mount components. Is there a convergence amp with discrete or integrated power pack components that I can replace. If so where located. I am an EE and work on flight simulators not usually TVs. I admit I am not very good with soldering surface mount components. Does this sound like conrol or amp?

All lines of convergence is wrong who I can restart adjusments?

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. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from

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.

I can't hook up my dvd player to my quasar model v v 1309 because we don't have a remote and can't change the input. The screen is blue and the channels change.

You should be able to change the input mode by changing the channel up or down past the regular channels (so channel down 3, 2, 1 > Line > 125 (if cable source) or 69 (TV source).

A replacement remote can be gotten from . With the remote, press Action and then enter the menu then choose Input Select and then choose Tuner or Line.

I hope this helps.

Tv shows double vision in blue color. how to fix this problem?

This is a problem with your convergence settings found under your tv's menu. its very easily fixed, you just need to open the setting for convergence and use the arrows on your remote to adjust. inproper convergence can cause either a red or blue haze around almost any object displayed on the tv screen

Tv stuck on menu


These Orions and the Emerson units built by Orion all revert back to set up after being unplugged for a given length of time. The situation can be rectified on the front panel without the use of remote. Please forgive if this seems over-simplified:

1. Turn on the set.
2. When screen appears push "FF" or "REW" button to select the desired language.
3. Push "PLAY" to move the arrow down to "Auto Preset".
4. "FF" to engage the auto channel programming.
5. When the set is done auto-programming the menu will clear and you use the set normally.

Good luck!

Colors are horribly misaligned... Do not have manual convergence...

Have you entered "Mute-> 1 -> 8 -> 3" to get to the remote convergence menu? There you can manipulate each color, null convergence, load last saved and make corrections. From this menu you should be able to determine if one or more convergence failures have occured.

V-chip code forgotten

I found this to work on my Toshiba TV/VHS combo MV19M4 after trying others suggestions that had worked on similar models but nothing worked on mine. Maybe it will work for yours. Follow these steps:

1: Unplug the TV for 1 minute then plug it back in.
2: In the menu select "TV Set Up".
3: Move the blinking block to beside "V-CHIP Set" BUT DO NOT SELECT IT.
4: Hold in the number 1 button on the remote.
5: Hold in the volume down button on the TV.

Your TV will turn off. Give it a few seconds to reset itself and then turn it back on and you will have to completely reprogram your settings. When you go to the V-CHIP settings it will ask for your new code.

You have a failure in the convergence circuit. To confirm this, go the customer convergence menu where it allows you to move red and blue crosshairs to align the colors. If the crosshairs fail to move then you probably have bad convergence IC's and/or some open resistors next to them. You can identify the convergence IC's as two large black chips mounted on a heat sink with screws. There will be an STK number on them, probably STK392-120 I think on that model (though not sure without the manual in hand). They will both need replacing with the same STK number as the one written on it. You need to check for open resistors too. They will be lined up infront of the IC's in a row and all should be < 5 ohm in value. You need to unplug all three CRT yokes from the convergence PCB when you measure these as you will read the resistance of the yoke and fail to detect an open resistor otherwise. If any need replaced they must be replaced with exactly the same value - they are critical.
