Question about Samsung HCM4216W 42" Rear Projection Television
Hi: Just turned on my Samsung 42in HCM4216W TV (5 years old). Everything was good for a few minutes, then the blue and yellow got separated into double images. Turned it on and off a few times. Everything, it was good the first 5 seconds it's on, then the double image shows up. Could someone please advise if this is something simple / inexpensive that one could fix (just have very basic electronic skills) and, if so, some guidance on how to do so would be appreciated!
Well, fortunately the television that you purchased has an auto-convergence feature. What is happenning is that your color lamps are misaligned, did it get moved at all recently? Anyway, in your menu you should see a "Convergence" menu, and inside that menu, a section called "Perfect Focus". Run Perfect Focus in this sequence: Green --> Red --> Blue After that your picture should look great, if not try tinkering with the manual adjustments on the "Convergence" menu.
