    Hi Don,

    Yes we do get double vision - actually it looks like triple vision of difference colors not lined up on the screen. Yes it is a HIGH usage set in our home! How much should we expect to spend to fix and is it worth fixing? Can I fix myself by buying a parts and repair manual?

    I'm seeing a blurry green shadow. None of the manual adjustments are working. I'm not tecnically saavy enough deal with convergence parts, etc. How much should I expect to pay a repair technician? I'm in the Atlanta metro area. Thanks

    Is there a way to fix the double vision our selves?

    IS THE ON SCREEN MENU GOOD ? DO YOU SEE DOUBLE IMAGE ,RED,GREEN, BLUE, ? DOES THE TV HAVE HIGH USAGE ON IT? IF THE SET HAS HIGH USAGE IT PROBABLY IS THE CRT'S (TUBS). THESE SETS ARE KNOWN TO HAVE LOW QUALITY TUBS IN THEM. AND THEY LAST 1-3 YEARS.

IF YOU HAVE DOUBLE IMAGES YOU CAN GO IN THE MENU AND TRY TO ADJUST THE CONVERGENCE, OR US THE AUTO JUST. ON SOME SETS IT IS ON THE FRONT. IF IT DOESN'T CORRECT THE PROBLEM THEN IT IS CONVERGENCE. I REPAIR 2-3 A WEEK. WE DO IT IN THE HOUSE, NO NEED TO TAKE THE SET OUT. MAKE SURE THEY REPLACE BOTH CHIP'S AND THAT THEY USE ORIGINAL PARTS, THE GENERICS DON'T HOLD UP. THEY USUALLY LAST 3-5 YEARS DEPENDING ON THE USAGE OF THE SET.

    IF IT IS CONVERGENCE IT IS NORMALLY $300-$350. BUT THAT INCLUDES THE HOUSE CALL I DO IT RIGHT THERE IN THE HOUSE. I DON'T LIKE MOVING THE SET'S . THE MORE YOU MOVE THEM THE MORE CHANCE OF SCRATCHING THE SCREEN AND CABINET. TO CHECK IF THE SET PAYS TO FIX, GOTO THE CONVERGENCE ADJUSTMENT IN THE MENU AND LOOK AT EACH COLOR, RED, GREEN , BLUE. IF ANY OF THE COLORS ARE NOT SHARP (IF THE CROSS IS BLURRY) THEN THAT CRT IS NO GOOD. THEY CAN FIX THE DOUBLE IMAGE BUT YOU WILL STILL HAVE A BAD CRT(S).

You have a bad convergence board. Replace two of the STK 392-040 ICs. And check all the resistors that are next to these ICs. Rplace the resistors as neccessary. This will repair your TV. Thanks for asking...sorry it took so long to find you!

Wavy colors across the screen and the color has separated. ghosts on picture -four eyes ect. I can't adjust the convergence.


This is a common problem. Your convergence has gone out.

Common symptoms are...

1) 3D Video
2) Warped Video
3) Convergence menu does not adjust the red or blue correctly.

I was watching my HCL4715W TV and the picture


It sounds like one of the convergence Ic chips is bad---you will need to locate and replace both of them and look for any damaged parts around them; there usually are two pico fuses in this area, one for each IC. The fuses do not look like glass fuses--they usually are green or orange in color and will have the amperage marked on them and on the top of the circuit board.

HCL4715W Rear projection blurry


The focus controls on this set are in the front behind the bezel. I'm not sure, but, I think on this age of Samsung, the screws to the front bezel are on the back side of the set. After removing the screws from the back, the front bezel snaps off and the door behind the bezel need to be removed. Watch the wires connected to the bezel, they need to be attached in order to turn on the set. The focus controls are on a black control block (there are three of them, one for each color). Adjust each color for sharpest picture. I use words on the screen for alignment. Each CRT board has a screen control (Adjust each slowly until retrace lines appear on the screen and then back off until they disappear). You may turn off the color and make sure that the picture is black and white. If it is not, then, which ever color is dominant, back it off a bit with that screen control. Facing the set, Red is left, Green is middle and Blue is on the right. Use only one hand inside an operating television. Do not touch the board, just the controls. This concludes television alignment 101. Any questions respond to this post and I'll reply.
