Question about Samsung HCN653W 65" Rear Projection Television
Sometimes I see wavy lines and this has been going on for about a year now. Not to big of a deal becuase they seem to disappear when what something in HD. Main issue is yesterday the TV was out of focus. Tried perfect focus but this did not work. In fact, it would not complete. I then did a manual convergence. Seems the green is waving and I can not line up completely the red and blue. What can I do?
The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
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 a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...
