Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
I've recently purchased this set for cheap due to a screen issue. The screen seems to be "pushed up" leaving an approx 4 inch line @ the bottom. I can see that it has moved up because the top of the picture is missing the 4 inches. I've called Samsung Support, and was told it would be an easy fix for their hired tech. Is there any way to repair this myself??
Yes, you can repair it yourself. All you need is solder, solder wick, a capacitor checker rated at more than 1000uf and a screw driver.First, remove rear cover and locate vert. circuit. Check all 100uf capacitors around vertical output. Unsoldering one leg to remove from circuit so as to get a good reading. Replace leaky ones with equal value. Another possible cause for that is the convergence board. If you have colored shadows around the screen there is a small board up above main p.c.b. Simply replace it. Another thing to try is to access svc. menu and write down value of vert. hgt. Then change it back and forth to see if it is adjustable. this may be an easy, or difficult fix. Good luck, Russmann.

The problem is the DMD is misaligned. If you take off the rear cover, you will see the back of the DMD/light engine. There should be 3 screws (3 on the 50 inch anyways) holding a rectangular silver metal case. Loosen those and adjust so that the screen is correct.
FYI, the adjustments are reversed. Up is down and left is right.
