Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you have to replace the convergence IC and also check the power resistor, if values are not exact you have to replace them. These ICs are located behind the black heat sink; you can see once you open the back off the TV. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Accessing Service menu to fix convergence


How far off are the colors misaligned such that you need to enter the service mode to fox them? If one or more of your colors has taken a dramatic shift in position, especially on any edge, then do not attempt to correct through the menu. If one of your convergence IC's has failed then the colors will not align on the screen. If you try to correct this in the menu, you will only be screwing up all the settings and making the set worse. When the IC is replaced with a new one your colors will still be way off, not because the new IC is not working, but because now the menu settings are too far off. I have been to many houses and spent 45 minutes replacing a burned out convergence IC followed by more than an hour realigning everything the customer messed up.

Colors arched and overlapping


if the option for convergence is still listed under the setting section of the on screen menu, then you need a convergence power supply board. If the convergence option is missing from the menu you need the ITC222 convergence missing repair kit. You can get either one at the following link they include instructions for the repair.

3d like picture, 3 colors bending across screen. convergence option gone from menu


There are bad solder connections on the flyback transformer and fuse #FL231 is open. Pretty hard to repair this yourself.

The color green has come out of the other colors


Needs to be converged if this is a projection tv. Check menu for a cutomer convergence option. Should be a manual or auto convergence. If you cannot move anything in manual convergence then convergence amplifiers are bad and need to be replaced. Professional can replace no problem.

Go to menu look for convergence on menu if it is not on menu then you have a open fuse located next to Flyback Transfomer on deflection board.

Red, green and blue color resolution


Hello my name is willie and i see this problem alot here at the shop. The symptons you describe is known as "convergence". OK your problem might have a simple soultion. if you can answer this question. When you acess the customer menu go into setup option.. then do you have convergence option. If you do not it will be known as the fl231 fuse. a fuse that common to blow due to bad connections. Now if you do have this option then you will have more problems with other boards. and it will have to be troubleshoot further. Does the picture also bown in at the top and bottom. when you go into convergence option(if you have it) does the cross hair move? let me know and i will see if i can help further

Adjusting the convergance


On my 55 inch rear projection Samsung, there is a menu option to adjust the convergence. There is a manual as well as an automatic option. It is easier to do with the remote control. My Samsung remote has a button called 'perfect convergence' or something like that. you can also get to it from the menu tree pushing the menu button on the front of the set. You need to scroll through all the options to adjust color, contrast, parental control, etc. You should find it.

I assume the same is true on the 37inch samsung.

How old is the set? A number of samusng sets have problems with two large IC's that tend to burn out. This causes the symptom of colored shaddows, tend to be worse the further away from the center of the screen. I just finished doing the repair to my set. If you cannot adjust the convergence, that is most likely your problem.

Good luck!
