How to remove back of Samsung HCL4715W 47 in rear projection TV

I need to replace the convergence board on my HCL4715W (part number AA95-01799G), but for the life of me cannot figure out how to remove the cover on the back of the TV. I called Samsung and they initially said that instructions would accompany the part, but that wasn't the case. They suggested I purchase the service manual for the TV, but could not confirm that the instructions would be in there. Since a number of you fixed this, can anyone walk me through it? Maybe I am a ****, but I just can't seem to figure it out. Thanks!

    Slinteriors, you must be correct. I figured out how to open the back of the TV (some overlooked screws by my husband... LOL). We replaced the convergence board... to no avail.

    Can you provide more info about the Convergence ICs on the sub board.... is that something a layperson can fix on his own? We're on the fence about how to save this TV because it hardly seems worth it to pay a repairperson upwards of $600 to fix it.... if we can't fix it ourselves, we'd rather invest in a new TV.

    Many thanks for your input and I hope someone can help point us in the right direction for a fix.

    Thank you! One more question, if you will humor me a bit further. Will the fix require soldering? My husband seems to think so and does not feel he can handle that. I really appreciate your assistance!

The screws are identified by little arrows pointing to the screw holes. However I would be surprised if its the convergence board most times its the Convergence ICs located on the sub board

    Your model uses (2) STK392-040 convergence ICs. This is a fairly easy repair. In fact if you order your ICs through this link they will provide free instalation instructions with pics as well as free on line tech support. The job takes about 45 minutes from beginning to end. The ICs are located on the Huge heat sinks on the sub Board ( board on the right) They are big black ICs you will see STK392-040 stamped on them. They both need to be replaced. Heres the link to that site.

    Yes the repair does require soldering but only in the most basic sense of the word. Its actually just touch the solder iron tip to one side of the pin and touch the pin with the solder then move on to the next pin. That site also installs the new ICs and then ships the boards back which is about the same charge as most shops charge just to come look at the set, if you dont feel confident doing it yourself.

TV won't power on

Disconnect the convergence board and see if the set comes on. If it does, and it probably will, replace the convergence board or the convergence amp IC's. Good Luck
