Verticle lines i have verticle lines across the whole screen. they are straight and evenly spaced.they are mostly red and green but they appear to change when the image is moving on the screen. they do not appear on inputs with nothing hooked to it.they also appear when using onboard tuner.i just had the red and green ic's replaced about a week ago for a convergance problem could this condition be related to these ic's? this tv is about 5 years old and i have had it repaired 4 times for convergance ic's.

I am woundering if the repair folks did the proper job and used the right IC's as alot of NON authorized shops will use the cheap aftermarket repalcement ICs and not even use any new heat sink compound. 4 repairs in 5 years is very excessive! I would not have called the same shop(s) to do the repairs. Put on the test scren on the TV set and see if the convergence is off. If it is make the shop replace them again for free or ask for your money back. Man what a rippoff that is. Good Luck and keep us informed of your progress with the shop and the repair.

Even spaced vertical lines across the whole screen on all sources

If you are handy with SMT rework it might be possible to fix this problem. The heat spreaders on the LCD drivers are insufficient to cool the chips and they will get hot enough to reflow the solder and cause a short on some of the pins. I think it most often happens after bulb replacement since bulbs near their end of life are dimmed and run cooler. After replacing the bulb the bit of extra heat is all that is needed to push them over the edge.

The problem also seems to be most prevalent on the green IC since it shares a heatsink with red and has a smaller area to dissapate the heat into.

If you pull the heatsink you will probably be able to see the short with careful inspection. The pitch is very small - 0.6mm but I was able to wick, clean, and reflow one side of my green IC and the problem went away.

I am planning on adding some additional aluminum stock to the heat spreaders with some thermal adhesive to give the chips more cooling.

By the way the very common rattle noise in these projectors is not a fan but the auto iris. You can unplug the iris servo from the mainboard and disable the auto iris in the menu to work around the problem or you can replace the iris servo for about $75, again, if you are handy with that sort of thing.

HCM4215W Green convergence problem

Hi Greg,
Sounds like you have a bad convergence chip in the convergence board. Unfortunatly, about 80% of the rear projection sets I work on have this similar problem. I suggest that you change both chips ( there are 2 of the same ) and remember to use heat sink compound as this is why you not have the problem ( excessive heat destoys electronic components). Good Luck

Verticle lines on screen

This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg
