Question about Samsung HCN4226W 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

One color Bow-tie Effect.

Hi,
My problem is with the Samsung HCN4226W, Bow-tie effect (Blue color only). When I run the Perfect Focus, it will do the Green, Red and when it does the Blue it runs and runs at 44 percent and eventually returns to the Menu without any changes. Is this a convergence board problem or IC's and if so, what are the part numbers. You can see the problem in the attached photo. Thanks for your help.

    same thing only mine looks more wavy also, kinda like an ocean.. I replaced ic's (done them many times) also replaced and checked all resistors on the conv. board, still it is the same. even replaced the fuses in front of the ic's. If i plug the red into the blue on the conv. board, the red looks wavy, so it is not the CRT. EVERYTHING on the conv board has been checked and tested. Any other ideas?

SAMSUNG Convergence Problem


It looks like blue convergence. Look at menu, select convergence and see if blue top is bent down on convergence adjust screen. Probably won’t adjust.

Some Samsungs have convergence IC’s on a separate convergence board in the back of the TV. Others have the IC’s mounted on the main deflection board. Either way the board has to be removed to get at the dud IC’s and associated burnt resistors.

You remove the appropriate board, determine if any resistors are burnt or damaged, replace any burnt or out of tolerance resistors, replace 1 or 2 IC's and re-install the board.

Now you have to adjust it to look like new.

If the unit has not been misadjusted and everything is OK now, running the auto focus may put the picture back to it’s previous stunning quality as it was before IC failed.

If after Perfect Focus it is still misadjusted noticeably, try the customer convergence adjustments. Operators’ manuals are available on web through searching.

If convergence can not be adjusted properly, you messed up chip install or resistors may be wrong value or open; or it needs major adjustment.

If you live around Calgary, Alberta try me instead:

Or try to the find the repairperson part of this website (on the Homepage) and search postal code. Maybe you will be lucky and someone from your area is listed for Projection TV repair.

Most rookies doing this job will cause damage and not be successful. They will pay double for someone to fix their mess or end up scrapping the TV. It is not a simple task. It is more difficult than batteries on a remote.

Good Luck

I have this same problem with the PT51HX41E but in the convergence menu the green and red are allowed to move. but the blue on the right side of the screen is not allowed to move and it looks like its...


My first guess would be a bad convergence amplifier - this is common, although usually all three of the amplifiers in the integrated circuit die at the same time, which throws off at least two colors and creates a "bow-tie" effect. I surmise you have half of a bow-tie in blue only.

If you could look at the blue output waveforms with an oscilloscope, you would see right away if this is the problem (flat-line instead of sawtooth wave). It is possible that both of the blue convergence amplifiers are working, but one output is not getting to the blue deflection yoke.

Don't mess with the convergence anymore until you get this taken care of. Changing the convergence now will only make it harder to get it back to where it should be once the circuit is fixed.

Toshiba 57hx81 tv has a bow at bottom of screen and blue in color tried using toush focus & got error then tried to focus manually & couldn't get the bottom lines to focus all the way down


noted in the owners manual, if auto focus returns message "error" , it suggests to use manual convergence setting..failing that, is it resonable to suspect that the STK-392-110 (convergence (2)chips)are beginning to fail, bendt horizonital lines is the effect. you can check all the resistors and pico fuses (power board)near the chips for shorts, chances are they are ok. seeing that there is somewhat of a picture (kinda like 3-d). i would repaired it!.. while your there do the hyperboard repair as well by replacing the 10 caps with 16v@10uf. (causing a wavy vertical distortion effect).

This is an indication that the STK is bad. The PC board should be marked to indicate which one if for the green.
