Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television

Replacing Convergence ICs

Is it difficult for a layperson to replace the convergence ICs on the sub board? I have a Samsung HCL4715W 47 in. rear projection TV. We tried replacing the convergence board, but it didn't fix the problem. In trying to perfect focus, we can get the blue aligned, but not the red.

I can order the service manual if it will help, but before I do that, I sort of need to know if this is a problem I can fix without beng an expert. Many thanks!

You have a bad convergence board. Replace two of the STK 392-040 ICs. And check all the resistors that are next to these ICs. Rplace the resistors as neccessary. This will repair your TV. Thanks for asking...sorry it took so long to find you!

A lot of times when the convergence ICs blow, there are also problems with resistors on the board (talking from Hitachi experience), or the board itself.

If the other problems, like blown resistors, are not repaired, the ICs will blow again right away. If the ICs are your only problem, then replacing them may work

The convergence board wont correct the problem. You need to replace the two Convergence ICs on the sub board STK392-040 and you will be back to normal. See my response above. That site will help you get it back to normal.
