Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Hi, my t.v. is a Samsung rear projection and has what I can only describe as a "double picture". Had a repair man out yesterday who said it is not worth repairing as the message "no sensor data" is appearing.

A double picture to me is an indication of a convergence issue; from what you describe. WHat is the model for this set...i would have to know to be sure.. NO SENSOR data sounds like to me that the convergence has been messed up. No sensor data ussally means that the unit has lost calabration and will have to calabrated by a service tech... although these set are notourous i wouldnt give iup yet

My Tv started shown double image yesterday. What


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 Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Our picture shows double. The repair man came out


Not advisable. $500.00 is way over board what we charge for that repair. 250-300 max. I don't know of any shop or with our tech web site that charges that kind of money. I would still shop around.

I have double blurry vision with green and purple/red splashes on all inputs (ghostlike)


This is a very common problem. If you want to fix this yourself you will need to be able to solder, but other than that its a very easy fix. Both the convergence output ic's need to be replaced (PN STK392-110). If you have a repairman do this for you it will run $300-$500 to repair. Let me know if you want to fix this yourself and i will assist you further.

Thanks

CONVERGENCE OUTPUT I.C.


Nextag and eBay are turning up nothing for this model. In comparison to other manufacturer's prices, the quoted price is not "unreasonable." Projection TV repairs are certainly not cheap. Sorry.
