Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

This tv has been a nightmare, its been down 3 times in 4 years.

Upon viewing the tv it looks as if someone is squeezing the picture inward from top to bottom, the three colors are bending and or not aligned. viewing a person's face i see 3 sets of all the facial features and 3 sets of the different colors. can anyone be so kind as to help me order the right replacement parts, thank you for yor time and expertise.

The convergence board, AA95-01799G is available from for about 122 bucks + shipping. You also may need to get the service manual so you can do the convergence alighnments with this set when you replace the board. You will also need the manual to perform the perfect focus alighnment on this set if you have that feature. Good Luck

23 inch coby flatscreen wont power on clicking noises

After purchasing it a year ago, I have had all sorts of problems with a Coby 23" LEDTV2326 since buying it new in the box at a very reputable long time established, high end pawn shop. It is hooked up to HDMI to my cable box and was working fine for the first 9 months and then it started showing the blue light coming on, but no picture. It is turned on and off through my cable box remote control. Every day it takes longer and I'm not even sure each time what it takes to get it to come on, but I just read something about sharing the power with another device (the cable box) in the same outlet. So, I unplugged both tv and cable box, then just plugged in tv without the cable box plugged into the outlet. I pushed only the tv button on with the remote, the blue light came on and the tv came on all the way on. I then plugged in the cable box and it eventually came on with the HDMI signal and the tv was again working as usual. I suspect somehow this relationship between the cable box and the tv is the problem, but I'm not sure. It also seems that this HDMI source is a problem even though the tv is designed for it. The TV picture is perfectly fine, so I have a hard time believing the failure of the tv to come on is tied to a flawed part in a 1-2 year-old tv, particularly when the picture looks perfectly fine with no defects and the blue Led light on the tv come on. I think it has something to do with the HDMI line to the cable box not transmitting an effective picture to the tv reception. Cox Communications Cable is one of the worst of the worst companies for giving customers old, outdated and defective cable boxes, cable lines and their customer service is horrible and unhelpful. So customers think it is their tv, when it is really the cable box. That's why the blue light to the tv comes on, but no picture - maybe. I found out that the last cable box they gave me was no longer even manufactured and hadn't been manufactured in two years prior to the one they gave me, it was refurbished, yet they were going to stick me with the same model when the other one broke down with whining and clicking noises and it was a DVR recording cable box and I didn't even order their monthly DVR service. They stuck me with it because they wanted to lure me later into ordering the DVR program recording service. That box was a nightmare. Every night, Cox would load their entire tv programming for the next 24 hours into the box so they could record my viewing habits without my permission and then drop in commercials based on my viewing habits in the middle of other commercials that would suddenly disappear when they clicked over to the inserted commercials based upon my perceived viewing habits. They hook up my computer and my phone all onto one system with the tv and it gets to be very "big brotherish" like all the other data collection scandals that are violating our privacy rights.

The screen looks out of focus and the top and botton bend inward.

Remove front bottom panel behind it is a small black control box top controls are focus controls for R/G/B and Bottom 3 controls are your screen drives adjust one at a time turn off G/B adjust red first,then Do Green and Blue fter adjusting focu to each tube leave them set then adjust screen drive turn color off adjust RGB for a Black and white picture get as close as you can then turn color back If after doing this you still have blurry looking picture look down into Tubes you should be able to see picture clearly in each one if you cannot see picture then projection Fluid need to be changed out.

Try unplugging TV while it is on and let sit for 20 minutes. Re-connect and see...
It sounds like your horzontal control is bad. It requires a new circuit board.

Red gun problem phillips 60pp9202/17f

Same sort of problem here. My red looks like it's pinched in the middle and is curving inward. The whole picture looks like you should have 3-D glasses. I've heard it's a problem with a convergence chip, but I have no clue how much that will cost to have someone come fix and we live in a rural area in MO. I'm sure that will jack up the price. Mine is only about 4 years old, I wonder how much I could sell it for (as is) and buy a new TV.

3 inches missing on both sides

Sounds like it is a widescreen TV stuck in standard view mode. Should have a menu option called widescreen or movie format.
Do you see the whole picture squeezed down or is it actually cutting off the sides of it?

Toshiba 51H83 51 in. Rear Projection pisture issue

I have a wild guess. I have the same tv and channel 72 is the proper channel to watch tv on. I don't know why, but maybe try channel 72 instead of the usual channel 3. Good luck, maybe a quick fix, maybe not!
