Question about Samsung PCL5415RB 54" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Color is distorting. screen flashes to different colors

After I turn it on, it seems normal, but then quickly starting changing colors.  Blue seems to be the dominate color.  It may go from normal, flash to a solid blue screen, to normal, then maybe a redish tint throughout, back to normal.  I do not notice much green involved.  I 'perfect focused' it, and red and green went through quickly, but blue took longer to focus.  After that, it continued to flash colors, so I unplugged it and am hoping you can help.  Ask more questions if you need to.

Screen is showing all black things red


It sounds like your screen might be going bad. Normally there is no setting you need to be doing to adjust colors on your screen. There are some settings when you click Start/Control Panel/Display to look at your display settings, but these normally just control the color around the windows. For example the normal or default color for the strip that is at the top of your internet browser is blue but you can change it. I would say that when you boot your machine if the colors are not what they should be normally during the boot process, then your screen is going bad. You might try Opening a Word Document then type words such as Black, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, etc. on different lines in the document. Then highlight the word and change the font color to match the word. This might let you see if your colors are true colors or if the screen is bad.

Picture seems sunk in and the color distorted with doubleing effe


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 projeciton 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 photos of convergence problems.

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

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.

Distorted color on image


You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
