    my father has a samsung HCL473W projection television, and i beleive that the colors are out of adjustment. we have tried to adjust them back by truning the lenses. it came close but there still was a green tint with a curve going through the middle of the screen. i was just curious if you might know how to fix the problem and make it picture perfect again?

Hi,

Check out the Convergence Gallery. If you see the colored outlines or color shading as in the Gallery, you have a convergence problem.

This requires the replacement of the defective IC or ICs and any damaged or smoked resistors. Usually there is little alignment required after the repair. If you play with all the adjustments before the fix, hours may be spent re-aligning.

Don't monkey with it.

This is a delicate and difficult repair. If not done by someone with some electronic repair experience, the TV will likely end up as junk or cost considerably more for a tech to fix the damage done.

If you live in Calgary, call me. If elsewhere, find a competent tech.

When recording and playing back the view screen is distorted with alternating lines.


If there is no problem when you play back on a different camera or computer, then the fault concerns LCD ribbon cable or lcd controller circuit on main pcb.

If the recorded image is also distorted on computer and different camcorder, then you have a faulty ccd sensor.
Also wiring problem and pcb fault sometimes can cause ditorted picture, in that case the problem is usually a kind of dirturbance and does not happen all the time.

Curved red lines on the screen and the picture is distorted


This is a convergence problem that can be either poor solder connections on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder you can fix this yourself. Update this if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll supply additional details and instructions.

I believe you have convergence problem on your rear projector TV. It require to replace may be 2 IC output convergence or the convergence drive, after replace those component you need to readjust convergence which mean you move the RED GREEN BLUE to be 1 on top each other you must have the remote control and service manual to get into the service mode, if you thing you can get those part in your country the service manual I may help you with that, ask your husband if he like to challenge it. I hope that is give you some ideas
