This is the most common problem with projection based sets, what you have is known as convergance failure. There are two Ic's and in a Samsung they are STK392-040's these will need to be replaced and possibly a small fuse and a few resistor. I am haveing trouble with the moidel number you gave and cant quite nail it down, but some Samsungs put these all on a easly replacable board. This board BP95-00142E is about $80.00 and avalible at www.vancebaldwin.com A easy way to tell is remove the back and see if these huge Ic's STK392-040 are mounted separly from everyother board and are mounted to the crt mount

Hi Sandy, the problem with your TV is called "convergence". It can be a problem with the convergence board or more likely in this model in the power supply or deflection circuits. Unfortunately, troubleshooting by a technician is required.

Hi,since you are getting the new silver air pressure version you will need to put an jumper to the dmd board,why because gold version spins different than sliver and that will produce the tv to have color discoloration or bluryness.Good luck and God bless you!

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.

You are in need of electrical service. Hopefully it has a warrenty. To many possible causes to guess, but the burnt smell, suggests a qualified technician should repair this for you. Good luck.

Blurry screen?


there are 3 things that will make your tv go blurry, the focus and screen control assembly , the high voltage splitter and the horizotal transformer and that is only if all three tubes are blurry.if only one tube is blurry, more than likely the tube itself is bad.

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.

The words on the screen is doubled or trippled.


Go to the picture control menu and turn the color to minumum so that you are watching a black & white picture. Do this to determine if the color offset affects the overall screen or just the lower corner. If the center is off, go to the convergence adjustment menu and align the red and blue onto the green as described in the owners manual. Some models also allow you to align the outer edges as well. If the bottom is still bad you may have a problem in the convergence circuit. If the outlines are not seriously bowed or distorted a minor convergence toutchup by a qualified technician should correct the problem, otherwise parts are involved and the repair is considered major.
