Question about Samsung HCM5525W 55" Rear Projection Television
Right side ghosting problem on the scree. Possible Convergence problem? Saw other posts. Amazing timing... How difficult is it to remove t back panel and replace t sub deflection board? Anything else to watch out for? Thanks
The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
