Question about Samsung HC-P4752W 47" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

2 1/2 years new Samsung HC-P4752W from Costco, Canada

After reading through the Many similar problems, hourglass effect, overlapping top and bottom print, red dash lines at top etc... it seems these issues are fixable, but not by me! Are these expensive repairs to have done by a technician?? I'm not too happy that the warranty is 1 year, this wasn't a cheap T.V. to start with...I'll think twice about Samsung in the future.

Re: 2 1/2 years new Samsung HC-P4752W from Costco, Canada

Samsung makes a great product and has one of the best pictures out there. I have had mine for a couple of years and only experience a slight convergience issue on left and right sides of the screen after twenty minutes of run time. I am currently trying to figure out how to fix it.

Check the resistors near the ic, and the fuses to the ic's, i bet you will find an open fuse. the fuse will look similar to a resistor without color bands. use a dvm and set it on ohms, with the tv turned off.

I think you have a fault on the chroma board and on the picture frame board. If you can trace it yourself try these two locations otherwise call out a competant technician. hope this helps.

Double vision

My television is a hc-p4752w and the color convergence is way off. The red and green are not together and curl away from the top of the screen and bottom too. I tried to auto focus with only making the color separation worse. The tv is about four years old with lots of play time...

Convergence issues

if youre having convergence issues with your samsung HC-P4752W you need to replace both convergence ICs numbers STK392-010 they are available at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions with pics so you can do the repair your self and they also give free tech support in case you need extra help. Its an easy repair takes about an hour from start to finish, Changing the convergence board wont help as the Convergence ICs are located on the sub deflection board and thats about 400 to replace the board compared to 50 to replace the ICs. Heres the link.

Samsung HC-P4752W Blurry ONLY on HD Channels

Similar problem, then about 2 weeks later the SD convergence went out. Changes convergence Amps,,, Now I'm trying to learn what 2 red flashes mean now when I try to power it up,,, it flashes twice then shut down into standby mode,,, I got no picture after installing STK392-040 chips, thinking about trying another set as atleast I had blury picture before. No solder shorts of opens that I can find. TV has always been a pain,,, locking up once in a while such that you can't change modes,,,
