Question about Samsung HCM553W 55" Rear Projection Television
The other day I was watching a movie on my television,then suddenly the t.v shut off, and then it came back on all by its self. The picture on the screen now appears to show the red color distorted and it is not matching up with the other colors. All the other colors are fine at the moment except the red. Please get back to me a.s.a.p, so that we can get a price evaluation on how much it would cost to get our television fixed. We have a Samsung Model # HCM 553 W, "55" Thanks Jon
There are two big Audio Amplifier Chips on the conversion board The first three solder connections on each of those chips commonly are burned and lose connection. You may just need to resolder the connections. These Audio Amps are running extremely hard and it is not uncommon for them to overheat and char the connections, or burn up the chip. But the cheapest fix is to resolder the joints first.

The convergence chips have gone out. It costs about $300 if it's not under warranty. This is a common problem with all rear projection tv's.
