    OK, I got impatient had a repairmen look at it there is a carck in something and that goo leaked out and dripped on a small boars under it and a large board in the center, That boeard is shortedand he also said that this goo is very conductive to electricity and that is what is causing the short in the board. Total repair $500.00. I asked would it be cheaper just to buy a plasma or a LCD. he says that the projections screens last longer that the PLasma or LCD. he states most of the new stuff only lasts 2-3 years at best before breaking down. Can I sell my set for parts? he only can offer me $50. I don't know what to do. What would you do if you were on a budget.

    what about soldering and stuff I don't have meters or anything like that, just the bascics screwdrivers sockets and stuff. Sounds like a couple of days work. Pluse that leaking part. He said would run $250.00 just under the geen Projection tube.

You can still get the manual at this link. The PCL5425R covers both models plus about 6 other models all with the same chassis.

    Sounds like the CRts leaked. This is repairable. The repairman I feel is trying to take advantage of you. If indeed this is a CRT leak that is repairable the boards need to be removed and cleaned then any components that were leaked on need to be removed from circuit, checked with an ohms meter then reinstalled if good. CRT coolant is corrosive it can ruin the boards if its not cleaned properly. The other items that can laek are capacitors thats the same with CRTs clean the components and reinstall good parts replace bad. I would recomend getting the service manual so you have part numbers and repair this set. I can post a link to my site that sells service manuals and then we provide free tech support to walk you through the reapir process and diagnosis . Many repair shops try to get people to sell their sets to them for next to nothing so they can put 50 or 60 dollars worth of parts and have a 1500 dollar tv. Let me know if you would like me to post the link to my other site. We have helped quite a few people repair their sets all by themselves with our free support. We sell the manual just so they have an idea on how to get the set apart and be able to test the proper parts in the proper manner.

    the seal is repairable partsstore sell them as well as matelectronics. He is trying to sell you a new CRT This is a common problem for mitsubishi the CRTs leak. It is an involved repair. You would need a soldering Iron and a ohms meter but with tech support you should be able to accomplish the repair. But It definately is a very involved proceedure just cleaning the circuits that are effected and reassembling the coolant chamber and reinstalling the tube. But Thats is your decision. I know its repairable but if you feel that you need a pro. I would recommend trying to contact another repair shop and explaining that the green CRT is leaking and see if they can give you a fairer price for doing the repairs.

I have a HDTV DLP TV HLT6187SAX/XAA I have problem with the color, now all in green, red and yellow. the blue was gone. I want to know is that the problem from the lamp or the bulb?

He is talking about the HLT6187SAX/XAA which is an LED model not the HL-T6187S model which has a lamp unless he gave the wrong model number in the original post.

I need a new convergence board, can I install it myself? Where would I find a convergence board?

I presume actual model number is PCL5415R---you can buy the
AA95-01799Rboard--it is available :

I would suggest since it is over 100 dollars it makes more sense if you have a convergence problem to buy and replace the two STK-392-040 convergence chips on it--there may be a fuse on the board bad--easy to find--

You can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for less than 20 dollars

Let me know if you have questions--I have seen people who replace the board have new problems-cheaper and better to repair the one in the set.

I am here to help people--if this information helps you rate this solution--I do this here for free.

SAMSUNG TV MODEL # PCL541R bulb not working

With the model number you gave, it comes back to a 2002 model in which DLP sets were not out yet. That's a conventional projection set with 3 picture tubes. Check the model number again?

PCL5415R conv. board problem. Having trouble finding part number. I have the manual Samsung

I'll take a look if you want to forward them to me:
This convergence board problem seems to be very common and if they are not too model specific (firmware embedded) there may be service companies repairing them. I don't; haven't done a whole lot of service for years partially due to the difficulty of trying to pry stuff out of the hands (or shelves) of Asia.

Samsung model number PCL5415R The blue bulb is weak. where can i get one and can I replace it it is a 52inch projection HDTV ready

You may also have a problem with the convergence. There are three color cans that project the image on the screen. A red one, green one and a blue one. The blue one is the one that you should try and adjust. Have you tried to realign the convergence yet? You should be able to go into the menu setting and locate this option is is typically done using the remote. What you will see is some cross marks starting in the center and move to the four coners. When you adjust it you will want to align all three (red, green and blue) crosses where neither color is more prevalent. If you are unable to get the blue can to align with the others, there is a problem with the convergence board. These boards or ICs can be replaced, if you have a repairman fix it your looking at around $250 - $400. If you would like to fix it yourself you can get the parts from...

My samsung projection tv #pcl5415r don't want to perform perfect focus adjustments

perfect focus functions are based on service mode setup...or factory settings. if the alignment of these setting are loss then the unit wont perfect focus. does the unit have a complete loss of convergence. a complete loss of convergence indicate possible failure of convergence amps.

Samsung 54" rear projection PCL5415R Won't Turn On

Although I am not incredibly familiar with your model, There is most likely a small board mounted above the others near the crts, there is a small red connector with a blue wire if you unhook it it will remove power from the convergence IC's and if they are shorted it might come up with conv out, will need a new module.
