The best advice I can tell you at this point is to go to tvrepairkits.com and order the complete convergence kit for your model of TV set, no need to search and order multiple parts from different sources and pay multiple shipping fees! Go to http://www.tvrepairkits.com/xcart/home.php?partner=larry
The kit comes with original Sanyo STK IC'S , not those cheap aftermarket or china made IC'S full pictorial directions, the thermal paste, resistors, the correct Pico fuses, AND free live on-Line tech assistance in case you run into a problem with the repair. They ship out 2 to 3 day Priority mail, the next day in most cases GOOD LUCK!!!

Service code needed to complete convergence adjustments


I have the service convergence code: mute-1-8-3 (make sure your tv is on and set to antenna. if it doesn't work press S. Mode and make sure is says standard then re-enter code.

So, I have the code but I need the convergence chips. Where did you get the convergence chips?

You may still one more resistor opened , samsung most of the time its 2 low ohms but can be 3 it will be same value as other 2. I think they are 2.7ohms or 3.9 How to Enter Service Menu for convergence Turn TV off Press Mute 1-8-2-power now you should be in convergence use vol- and vol+ to select an item Use mute and menu to adjust when done Press ADD to save adjustments made.

With power on, press Mute-1-8-3. That will get you into convergence mode. 1 sets factory default convergence. Avoid pressing 2 - it resets everything. 3 restores the last saved settings, 4 switches among fine adjust, line adjust and grid move. 7,8,9 - select R,G,B. The three keys below those turn RBG on/off.

Self-focus to save the settings. S-Mode to exit.

It can be a REAL headache, but take your time, and you'll get it done.

As an after thought....if you have a need to manually adjust the convergence, you probably have something wrong - unless you've just replaced parts and are doing the initial convergence.

How to service mode


With TV powered off press: [mute], [1], [8], [2], [power]
Television will power up in service mode and GAMMA GAIN1 will be displayed on the screen.
Use [mute] and the [menu] button to move values up and down.
Use the [volume +] and [volume -] keys to move to other adjustements.
Use [add] to save the settings.
If you're attempting to adjust color or geometry errors, you'll need the Video Essentials DVD, Laser Disc or some other source of test material.

HCM4215W convergence issue


mute 183 power.

You may have done alignment previously in service mode and not initialized or saved correctly. add/erase saves

The test for convergence ICs working is if the V and H can be adjusted for all colors in different picture quadrants. The adjustment may be so far off that it looks broken.

There may be low ohm resistors that have increased in value. Some Samsung chassis use low ohm resistors that have built in Zener diodes for stabilizing the voltage drop across the resistor. Replacing with ordinary resistors (as the schematic shows) may cause poor convergence that can be adjusted after warming up, but always varies noticeably when going from cold to hot.

Using the correct part number from Samsung will ensure that the right part is in place.

When 1 or 2 ICs fail with no resistor damage, only small or no adjustment is necessary (if the replacement ICs are well made and imitate the original). When resistors burn and are replaced, adjustment is required more often than not.

Call someone that has aligned and repaired numerous Samsung RPTVs and your problems will be over.

New Convergence board but need help adjusting convergence still


If the new sub board didnt fix the problem you will need a new convergence board as the sub deflection boards with the ICs only powers the convergence board. thats a complete seperate board. Let me know if you need more assistance.

Convergence settings


Key Functions
7,8,9 = select R, G or B
+100,0,PRE-CH = mute R, G or B
INFO = test/normal
4 = shifts from point to line, grid move
2 = restore factory
SOURCE = H/V select
ADD/DEL = Save
S.MODE = exit
MUTE = cursor forward
P.MODE = cursor back
Volume +/- = moves convergence left or right
Channel +/- = moves convergence up or down
1 = zero's all convergence settings (ugly!)
U/D/L/R = move cursor
SELF FOCUS = saves the convergence adjustment - do before exiting

Good luck.  I let a sub-standard service joint work on mine - they replaced the OEM chips with a higher wattage equivalent, and I've had nothing but problems ever since.

Loss of convergence after powering off.


you must enter the service mode and align your convergence and save it to the epromm also activate the auto focus to activate the sensors , power on /mute-1-8-2- / press enter to save and before you exit activate the focus key on the remote ,very inportant to do the last step./g
