Question about Samsung HCM553W 55" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

How much would it be to repair our t.v.?

The other day I was watching a movie on my television,then suddenly the t.v shut off, and then it came back on all by its self. The picture on the screen now appears to show the red color distorted and it is not matching up with the other colors. All the other colors are fine at the moment except the red. Please get back to me a.s.a.p, so that we can get a price evaluation on how much it would cost to get our television fixed. We have a Samsung Model # HCM 553 W, "55" Thanks Jon

There are two big Audio Amplifier Chips on the conversion board The first three solder connections on each of those chips commonly are burned and lose connection. You may just need to resolder the connections. These Audio Amps are running extremely hard and it is not uncommon for them to overheat and char the connections, or burn up the chip. But the cheapest fix is to resolder the joints first.

The convergence chips have gone out. It costs about $300 if it's not under warranty. This is a common problem with all rear projection tv's.

Tv shut down wont go back on


This sounds like a problem with the power supply. Usually capacitors on the power supply board tend to dome, bulge,or dry up. The damaged ones can be seen on the power supply circuit board when the back is removed. The dry ones have to be removed and tested. The caps can be replaced at a repair shop for around $200, but if the power supply board has to be replaced it can cost a little more. It all depends on the shops repair fees.

Lost picture all color lines are at top of screen


Thats what happened your convergence went out, those parts can be found online for as little as 12.50 a piece. If you are good with solder its an easy fix. I found a guy on craigslist in denver who fixed it for 150
good luck

Input feed problem


I would suggest using the AV inputs instead of the coaxial input. It looks like there might be a tuner intermittent failure but using the AV inputs bypasses the tuner.
Good Luck.

Hello, one of possible solutions is to replace T7735 by the same type of transistor and L5753 (220uH use 470uH). This is a job for a technician. Best regards, Arpi
