Question about Samsung HCN5527W 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung HCN5527W Hello experts, We just purchased this TV from a co-worker. Sound is amazing but color is off no matter how we try to adjust it. Also, the "perfect focus" gets to 37% and shuts off. I am wondering if it is a repair worth doing or time to buy a new TV?? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. ~Kim~

    Hi Dan, You are correct, the color looks like a 3D movie before you put the glasses on. I really appreciate your help. I do not wish to try and fix it myself but at least I know what to expect cost wise. Thanks again!

In what way is the color off? Does it appear like a 3D movie? If so, the convergence circuit has a problem. This could be as simple as a bad solder joint on the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Figure on $40-$60 for parts plus the local labor rate if you need a service center, just the parts cost if you fix it yourself.

Update this if you need further repair details.

Samsung hcn5527w convergance factory reset


Sorry, I just saw this post.
I hope this helps.

Yes there is one more step. You should call the technician out and have them set up the Magic Focus adjustments. I have serviced these televisions for years and I have made this mistake and had to return to fix it. You should not have to pay for a rework. The technician should have done the complete job the first time.

I hope this helps
and good luck.

This is either a problem in the convergence regulator circuit or the convergence module

Michael,
the problem you are having is caused by bad convergance amplifiers along with open pico fuses internal to the set. these amps range from $45.00 to $65.00 each and both amps need to be replaced. this is a common problem with rear projection sets. these amps work very hard and are kept cool on large heat sinks. so with that a tech is needed to repair. techs may charge $150.00 to $350.00 for the labor. so shop around. as for the adjustments you made let the tech know because you may have set the settings far out of the range for the set and will cause shut down before it can be reset. the tech will know what to do. to find a factory athorized repair shop call samsung the number is in your manual or on line.

Samsung projection tv


Elissa, unless you have some basic electronics experience probably not, what your describing is one of the most common projection tv problems there is, but it will require replacing a few components on a circuit board. You will need to solder and possibly check resistance values of a few resistors. I will say there is no need for a samsung servicer, any tv repair place will know how to repair this problem. Probably will cost around 300 if you have somebody to your home. I don't think your looking for the Technical details but if so replace the 2 large STK amplifiers probably (STK392-040) and test all resistors and fuses in input/output ckts, replace accordingly.
