Question about Samsung PCJ534RF 53" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

Color not sharp

I just bought a used 53" Samsung on a stand, flat screen and the color is really dull.  I have tried several times to adjust.  The color is just dull.  It only has a red and green tint and the red seems to domintate.  Any help?  Can it be fixed?  Thank you.

    Might the convergence have anything to do with it?

  • myronabeyta Jul 05, 2008

    It seems the consensus that I need to find a technician to solve the problems. Was thinking that was needed but hoping it was not. Thank all of you for your advice. I really appreciate it.

This sounds like you have a convergence problem with TV. This is not something you can rectify yourself easily. You need to know the convergence procedure to set it correctly. You need to call a service technician who can complete this procedure for you. He/she can also flash focus for you.

Check this
Bad connections or bad component in video amplifier or on CRT neck board for that color.

Fault in chroma decoder.

Weak gun in CRT (reduced color).

    It is probably not the CRT. Do you have a scope? Check for the R, G, and B video signals at the CRT. You will probably find no signals for the defective colors.
    This is almost certainly a chroma circuit problem as any failure of the CRT or a video driver would cause it to lose a single color - the other two would be ok. Therefore, it is probably NOT the CRT or a driver on the little board on the neck of the CRT.
    Try turning up the SCREEN control to see if you can get a G and B raster just to confirm that the CRT is ok.
    Locate the video drive from the mainboard for the good and a bad color. Interchange them and see if the problem moves. If so, then there is a video signal problem. If not, it is on the little CRT board.
    It could be a defective chroma IC or something else in the chroma decoder.

Display Panel faults:
Vertical (source) faults are usually within the actual panel (Lines/Bands down Picture)
Horizontal (gate) faults are unually within the actual panel (Bands/Lines across the screen)
Better take it to a service station to check it.

I saw the same post, discount-merchant.com sells it for 69.99 but as I found out it is the WRONG one. Not even close and I'm annoyed he obviously never tried it himself. I bought a sharp replacement off of ebay but it died after 2 weeks, no refund. The Samsung model number that does not work is BP96-01579A. Maybe there is a samsung model that works but this was not it.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Edge Enhancement Option Disabled...


edge enhancement option i think would be enabled if you are in dynamic or movie mode. What it does is to enhance the contrast of the edges of 2 different colors.

I have the LA32S8, similar specs but only 7000:1 CONTRAST ratio. when playing dvd, i set it to movie mode. Settings vary on different tv and player. you can adjust first the backlight, then brightness then contrast, color and sharpness. the brightness you adjust by choosing the level that shows enough details on dark scenes. adjust if its too dark not to see the details of the scene. contrast, you can set by distiguishing vivid colors of the picture, dont put too much contrast as your picture would look flat. it should have a 3d look, same also with sharpness, you can experiment on the face of a person to show details on the edges.
color you set just enough to make it accurate on color reproduction.

My settings for movie are
contrast 92
brightness 49
sharpness 23
color 57
tint g48 r52
backlight 7
tone warm1
digital NR off
black adjust high
dynamic ocntrast high
gamma +2
edge enhancement on
color space auto
