Question about Samsung HCL4715W 47" Rear Projection Television
Model: HCL4715W Service Model: HCL4715WX / XAA Ok, I don't know what I'm talking about here. TV was fine earlier today, then suddenly the cable image looked funny, could see lines in the screen was the first thing I noticed. I figured my daughter accidentally hit the 'zoom' image or something, and didn't have time to look at it. Now, coming back home, and looking at it again, not only is there lines in the screen, but the picture is a bit hazy w/ extra blue being seen as a shadow to the main images. Checked the cables, ran a DVD and had similar problems, so it's not the cable box, or the cables. I've seen this kind of problem before, at least w/ the color, only to realize in sliding the tv around one of the 3 component color cords was coming loose, pugged it back in and it fixed problem in the past... but that's not the case now... I recently re-wired everything adding a receiver, but was still sending the video images via component cables in each case from the DVD and the HD Cable box directly into the TV, so I can play music on the receiver while still watching TV, so it's not a problem w/ the receiver. I tried the perfect focus, but that didn't do anything. I looked at the convergence thing, but don't really know what to do with it. The TV is almost 5 yrs old, maybe I have a bad bulb or something? Any troubleshooting tips to try to narrow it down, and hopefully fix it cheap myself???? Thanks, Karz
It sounds like convergence problem to me. There are two ways to correct these concerns; Samsung does sell boards, so if you are handy you can replace the boards yourself. BUT I recommend calling a factory authorized service company. It isn't costly, the cost will run around $400 -$550.
