Question about Samsung PCN5425R 54" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue horizontal bows/lines

My TV recently started showing blue horizontal bows/lines and blue double vision (most prevalent on text). From what I have read here, sounds like this could be a convergence board problem (BP95-00142E) or a simple alignment fix from service mode? Other peoples problems were similar but blue didnt seem to be the problem usually red & green?

 

Should I attempt the service mode alignment? Anyhow, if anyone has the required manuals in digits that would help. [email protected]

 

Thx, JT

It has tripple vision and looks like a bow tie.


hi, sounds like a convergence issue. try this...
  • Look through your manual. Your manual will always give you the most specific directions for your particular model. Look for an "adjusting convergence" or "set manual convergence" section.

  • Enter the menu on your TV. Use the remote control and bring up the menu.
  • Choose "Convergence." This may be under "Picture Settings," "Function" or "Advanced Options."
  • Select a color. You will have red, green and blue to choose from. Do each one, starting with red.
  • Press "Enter." A crosshair pattern will appear on your screen.
  • Adjust vertically. If there is a horizontal red line visible, press the up or down arrow keys (or channel up or down) to adjust the convergence until the line is superimposed on the horizontal-center line of the white crosshair.
  • Adjust horizontally. If there is a vertical red line visible, press left or right (or volume up or down) to adjust horizontally. Do this until the line is superimposed on the vertical line of the white crosshair.
  • Save settings. It is important to save your settings when you are done, instead of simply exiting the menu.
  • Repeat these steps for all colors.

  • good luck!

    Phillips 51pp9303h/17 red and green double vision of writen words and bowed line of red green at bottom. some objects in show look real shiney. and double vision of others.


    Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com

    Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

    Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

    This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

    Common Symptoms include....

    • Screen looks 3D
    • Colors don't line up
    • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
    • Screen is bowed or warped.
    • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
    Here are some pics of convergence problems.

    Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

    Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

    You can see the red blue and green lines on my tv it is like it is out of sync


    I'm not sure what you mean by the "lines". If you mean the image looks like "double" (or triple!) vision, then you need to adjust the red/green/blue convergence. This is especially noticeable with white images on dark background (like text of credits). If this is it, check you manual or explore your menu via the remote. Sometimes convergence can be a problem if the tv was moved or experienced large changes in temperature... or sometimes all by itself!

    My Phillips TV-29"surround speakers model,makes crackling sounds like firecrackers when switched on and the picture appears off and on before the screen goes blank.Sometimes a blue horizontal line appears...


    I suggest you download a service manual if you can find one.

    I am not an expert in such things but as it seems to be primarily a vision problem that is causing the sound to crackle and presumably the sound continues after the vision has failed indicates the problem could be in the power supply circuitry to the scan system(s). The horizontal blue line indicates the frame has failed but the line is still operating.

    That memory remnant from the days of proper pre-computerised tv is all the clue I can provide. These days the presence of so many hybridised circuits and loads of chips needs an entirely different skill base (and tools) than a basic understanding of electronics provide. Studying a service sheet/circuit diagram might provide the starting point for testing.

    Here are some photos of convergence problems.

    e87380c.jpg
    Here is a quick test....

    Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

    Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

    You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

    If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

    Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

    69189a5.pngCONVERGENCE SOLUTION

    You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
    This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

    Tv bows


    I have the same TV and just finished having my TV repaired for the same problem. I was unable to converge the colors even in the advanced convergence setup menu. The lines were bowing so far that adjustment was not possible. I had to replace the vertical and horizontal convergence controllers located on the main electronics panel. They require a lot of soldering and should be done by a professional. Unfortunately this is a common "maintenance" repair that happens every 5-7 years, depending on the usage, costing around $500.00 for in home repair. DO NOT USE YOUR TV IF THE CONVERGENCE IS BAD AS IT MY CAUSE THE POWER SUPPLY TO BLOW resulting in addition repair costs.
