Question about Samsung HC-P4241W 42" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Open Question

How do i reset convergence on rear projection samsung hx-p4241w please?

Hi
i had convergence issues on my tv and used the menu choice to fix the problem which did little to fix the issue.
then i used the mute-1-8-3 method and 7 8 9 to select R G B, 4 to select moving part a line, full line or the whole matrix. which was nearly perfect. 
however the "matix" is not perfect and in little areas is just a touch wavey, in one corner very wavey.
is there a way i can set one colour of the "matrix" back to factory setting and then move the blue and red to fit it so everything is symetrical and straight?
many thanks

    I keep trying to manually converge mine as well with the method as mentioned above.  I can get the color grid lined up but in 4:3 Aspect Ratio my picture is bowed all over the place.  I can watch a movie in one of the cinema mode but text is missing and pieces of the film are not visible.  How can I get that grid unbowed?  The only thing I can think of is to just sit there and tweak the grid for hours until its better.

The Samsung has bad convergence IC's most likly. This should be repair ONLY by a trained technician as a TV set is not a place to experiment or tinker with because of the extremly high voltage inside. This repair should cost you in the range of 250 to 400 bucks . Good Luck

press mute 183, if it isn't 183 it's 138.   You will see a large grid which you get the fun of adjusting, it's tedious as all get out! Enjoy!

SOURCE: convergence

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

I have a samsung HCP4363wx/xaa rear projection tv, and everything on all chanels looks like its always in 3-D, text is unreadable, any ideas what might b wrong ??


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
You can get a repair kit with parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

Sony projection tv convergence issue


You will need two STK392-560 Convergence ICs and you will also need two of the 3.5 amp pico fuses as Sonys will always blow at least two of the Pico fuses. You can get replacement ICs and Pico fuses at the fiollowing link and they provide free instalation instructions. Heres the link.

HX-P4241W appears yellow. Left and Right of screen are yellow


Yellow is the lack of blue. It can happen when you are running your contrast - which is your overall light level - too high.

Try turning down your contrast. On CRT tech, contrast should always be run at half what the factory allows as full, on the user controls. Full up is what calibrators call Torch Mode, and is NOT the way to get performance to be in the linear operating range of CRT tech.

If your sides are more yellow than your middle, your set may need lenstriping. Mild yellow on the sides is not uncommon, and usually not noticed. But heavy yellow on the sides would indicate that the blue image needs work on white field uniformity.

Yellow is the lack of blue, in CRT tech.
