My Samsung HCM553W rear projection television was working just great but now the screen's colors are divided and it looks like they are not overlapping on each other. Any suggestions?

This is a very common problem with all projection tv's it is the stk392 ic's in your set have failed. You can attempt the repair yourself as long as you understand the risks involved when working inside a tv, otherwise you can get it repaired by a pro and i would guesstimate it will cost somwhere between 250 to 300 to fix. the ic's are located on a big heatsink and the number stk392-xxx xxx If xxx is beteween the numbers 110 and 180 you can use the stk392-180 for the repair, and i would recomment doing this. if it is stk392-560 or another number replace only with the same ic.

Hi, convergence amps have blown, if you have soldering equipment and are proficient at soldering & un-soldering you can make the repair if not you need to calll a tv tech, there is also an alignment that must be done with the original remote once you install the IC`s, if your capable of this get back to me and I`ll look up the parts for you, video-tek

Video color

Hard to tell, but my first guess is that the green or blue video amp, or guns on the picture tube have failed.

Auto focus problem

The auto focus is not actually focusing the tv. When it is running it is adjusting the convergence. Most likely the repairman that replaced your tuner didn't plug the sensor wires back in. I would call him back out and have him hook it back up.

There should be a convergence menu in the tv. Use the samsung remote and go into the menu and look for convergence.
