Question about Samsung PCL541R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Samsung PCL541R vertical position is too low - partial

The bottom rolling banner, typically seen on news and sports programming, is missing it's lower half. Can an old electronics tech easily find the size and position adjustments? As I've never opened a rear projection before, do they exist or are they mechanical (mirror adjustments)?

    How are the display vertical size and position adjusted on my PCL541R?

  • James Jun 13, 2012

    I downloaded the service manual and was able to resize the display, although it was through trial and error as much was not explained. I suggest users record any settings prior to manipulation.

The adjustments are if present on this model in a hidden tech menu that is called up----with set on most of these sets with the original remote call the menu up with display 182 or 183---different buttons once in select items and cursors adjust them You might want to GOOGLE to see if you can find a service manual to guide you.

If you make it into tech menu use real care as easy to select and adjust incorrectly---most items in the menu will have a number showing the current setting to which it is a good idea to write down.

There will be a save or "Data" button also

I am going by memory here but have been in that menu before more than a few times.

the HCL473W, HCP4752 are basically the same set same features. The HCL models like the HCP are rear projection. Unfortunately Samsung no longer manufactures the rear projection CRT models they are only available in the DLP rear projection with the closest comparable model currently available for a new replacement would be the HL50A65 which is a 50 Inch 1080P suggested retail 1299.00 If I can help you further please let me know. Also new replacement chassis are available for the HCL4715W.

SOURCE: Picture shadow on rear projection Sony big screen TV

You have 2 distinct problems that should be addressed separately. Please repost the Samsung problem. I will address the Sony problem here.

If the "shadow" makes the picture seem somewhat of a 3D one, the problem is with the convergence circuit. This could be as simple as bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and would like to attempt the repair, update this and I'll provide more details and instructions.

SOURCE: Sound quit on Samsung rear projection TV

We solved the problem by purchasing a surround sound system and hooked it up to the Cable box thus bypassing the TV speakers. It was a cheaper fix than having a TV repair service guy come out and we have even better sound! Thanks anyway!

Samsung plasma has a black vertical line through almost the middle of the screen. It's partially opaque. Kid spilled water all over the screen the day before, but the line didn't show up until today.

Hello. I'm afraid that water has caused damage to the panel. There are boards across the bottom with ribbon cables attached to the panel, and the IC that feeds that section has failed. It is not repairable except by replacing the panel, which will cost as much as a new TV. Sorry about the bad news.

The scrolling banners on the top and bottom of my zenith monitor are cut off. according to my manual, it is 1 of 6 models: SR2573, SR2783, SR2739, SR2773, SR3238, SR3273.

Either an adjustment of the vertical height or Lin or a circuit problem in the vertical circuit.

Some sets have physical controls inside the set on the board or in a hidden menu via the remote.

What is the page setup in the Indesign Program?  Sounds like is is trying to print to the standard paper size of 8.5 X 11.  See if the program allows you to change the page set up to 12"X66" to match the banner.
