Question about Samsung PCL545R 54" Rear Projection Television

Rear Projection Samsung w/ convergence out

My convergence is off on my TV and I need to know if anyone knows the Technician access code to the remote control in order to get into and fix the convergence. I have used the main convergence fix from the "menu" screen, but I know there is a special code you can push into the remote in order to fix the convergence at a much more specific level. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

I believe it is mute-1-8-3 to enter the service mode, HOWEVER, I have also read that until the convergence problem is repaired, i.e. - depending on the configuration, either 2 individual IC's located on the lower board with 'playing card' size heat sinks or a simple replacmenet convergence board, adjusting the convergence through the service mode is comparable to "ripping the transmission out of your car to fix a flat tire". I myself have not gone into the service mode since I am still waiting for the replacement IC's - I get to do a component level repair.

double vision in a rear projection tv has several reasons. one is convergence magnets are out of tune. u need to tune them which is back side of picture tubes. u please observe that which color is producing the double vision. the lens are firmly fixed & therefore need not to adjust. other option is to adjust the convergence of tv by going to service mode by remote.

Convergence


It depends on what kind of convergence problem you got & what kind of universal remote you are using. If you mean aligning the crossline some
universal remote can be used to align the colors & on most TV you don't have to save it. Otherwise it will tell you what to do. If you are talking about aligning the convergence by accessing the service menu, you need the original remote control. Of coures this procedure is ONLY for the experience
technician. Good luck. AstroTech

the convergence board has nothing to do with tuning of tv, the convergence board put three colour gun (red, green, blue) to work with each other, else you get three image, of red , green,  blue or mixture of all as seperate image, the convergence board for american tv and Australian tv is possibly the same what you check to see the board  part number is the same you possibly need to see if the convergence board has got the memory i.c. if that is the case, you need to tune you t.v reset the channel etc good luck.
need more help let me know.

Need akai pt4799hd setup code


Do NOT attempt to enter the service mode to align convergence if you cannot align the convergence with the user's menu. If the convergence cannot be corrected with the user's menu, it means that one of your convergence IC's has burned out and possibly burned out the fuse next to it. If you change any settings without first replacing the bad parts, you will only make things much worse. I believe that set is actually a Samsung, and has the 2 convergence IC's on their own board mounted above the small signal board. If you do not know how to identify and replace shorted convergence IC's, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.

Samsung HCN4226W Service Menu?? For convergence issue????


The resistors on the new module are not 100% Identical in resistance to the originals on your board, to access the svc menu you will want a service manual and will require some patience. It can be tricky I would personally call a repairman with convergence in mind. Or order a manual and read the conv section several times. http://www.eserviceinfo.com/index.php?what=search2 Is one site, might have to purchase one.

The convergence wouldn't cause it to go all green. Green outlines yes but, not all green. Get a technician to look at it.
