usually on your model it might be best to replace the entire deflection board as your model has two STK394-250 ICs and then 12 3.9 ohm fusible resistors that will need to be checked and possibly replaced. If you need further assistance let me know I can assist with getting quality parts and circuit boards.

Thanks for using FixYa.The issue is with the failed convergence (STK) ICs which needs to be replaced. It's not a difficult job if you want to do this yourself, you should require some basic knowledge about soldering-resoldering components. To start with you'll have to open the back of the unit and then replace the ICs (STK ICs) which are located behind the black heat sink and also check the resistors as if they are short the ICs might blow again after sometime.
There are repair kits available which includes repair instructions with the parts, if you want to do it yourself, you can buy and repair it yourself. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

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

In order to properly provide you with guidance, we need some hint about the problem. Can you describe the symptoms? Is the set dead? Are there any blinking status lights?

To get TV into convergence menu hit mute 183 on remote. If you still cannot get it right you will need to replace the convergence amp IC's.

Look to see if any coolant fluid has leaked from any of the CRT's. This is a common cause of multiple component failures in these models. Look real close at the CRT mounting bracket, the wires coming from the CRT's and look at the particle board below to see if you can see any staining or puffed up wood particles. My experience with the Samsung bds is when you have a multiple compoment failure due to fluid leakage it is best to replace the boards instead of component level repair because other components will fail at a later time. Coolant fluid is real hard to spot since it is ultra clear. Hope this helps.
