Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Black Bar Sir, I recently replaced the color wheel in my Samsung TV and now I have a black bar or band across the bottom of my screen. This cuts off the top of the viewing screen and I am unable to see some of my football scores. This is serious stuff !!!!! Thanks for any advise, Ken

I know this is an old thread, but hopefully this will help someone! The problem is the DMD board is knocked out of alignment. It is adjusted by removing the small cooling fan and loosening the three gold screws that hold the assembly in place (two on the left and one in the middle of the board) AND by loosening the three (or four) spring loaded screws in the middle of the heat sink. Display a test pattern (from the service menu), tape the interlock switch closed (so you can power the set with the back off) and then carefully move the assembly (down is up; left is right.) An assistant helps! Once the image is correct, snug the screws up (they don't need to be torqued down!)

It took me FOREVER to figure this out - hopefully this will help someone else a little faster!

Blurry, purple bar across middle of plasma tv screen


Plasma screens are extremely susceptible to getting broken from any impacts to the face of the screen. What you are describing sound very much like distorted or dead pixels. It may not be a fixable issue, you may have to replace the entire unit or live with the purple bar. The reason you don't notice it as much when the screen is dark is because purple is on the darker end of the spectrum, and will be most visible in contrast to lighter ad brighter colors.

2" wide bar in center of Panasonic plasma TH-C42FD18 TV


The C5 board is bad. It is replaceable. Warning. always disconnect power cables from power board to y main on left and x main on the rt before ever messing with fat cables on boards across the bottom . The are created if power power is not isolated will vaporize these flat cable destroying the plasm panel. thes boars across the bottom are the c boards. If one of the connectors is loose it will create an vertical black bar in proximity to that connector. If the connector is not loose then replace that board. Also panel could be bad if c board does not fix. But remember to never connect or dissconnect these flat without disconnecting the power board from the sustain boards.

Hello, I have a 40" Samsung LCD flatscreen. My television has a 2.5" diameter black spot on the far left side about 4" from the bottom of the screen, Also we have a dark transparent band across the bottom...


Sorry Sir but your LCD TV got wet... it can be splash with too much water, an animal urinate on the panel, etc....
this kind of black spot is caused when the LCD Panel Terminals got wet, this terminals are located at the lower side of the LCD Panel.

Hi,If you are experimenting vertical lines ,black bars ,color

distortion,pixilation,or white dots on the screen you might be having an

issue with the Dmd chip.This is how the DMD chip works:

is composed of around 2 million pixels that create the image on the

screen.You will need to replace in order to fix your problem.Have a

blessed one!

Wide black bar on bottom of screen


I you know how to repair electronics its not a hard fix. The worst case would be the vertical output IC but im thinking th its nothing more then a capacitor in the verticle sweep circuit The average cost to repair this should be around 75 to 125 bucks. Good Luck
