Novice installing HDTV(Samsung),DVD(Sony) no pic on TV

I am a 100% novice when it comes to electronics, but will not hesitate to give it a go! I hve a new HDTV(Samsung) and a 6yr old Sony DVD/VHS player. TV channels show great pic! (I have not hooked up any high def devices or connections yet!) However, I hooked up my DVD player to the HDTV, using Monster component cables(all connections are accurate) grn to grn(y) blue to blue and red to red. I attempted to set my clock on the DVD )setup)and no display or pic. I was told to depress the source button on the TV to see if it picks up the DVD. I did and it gives error Component 1-weak or no signal. I just realized though. I have not hooked up the audio red/white connections..some diagrams show it used..some dont so I assumed I did not need it..guess I do, but would that keep me from having a pic on the TV from the DVD and the TV not detecting the device? I also do have an older JBL receiver I will eventually be hooking up and will be using the Component cable..NOTE- neither the DVD player nor the receiver has a HDMI connection.

Color Wheel installation


You can purchase color wheel of Samsung HLT5075SX from Part Store and I would recommend to have qualified TV tech for installation. it is not advised to novice to get involve in such kind of repair that can damage TV.

Still you want to repair it by yourself then download service manual copy of same TV from HERE for small fee that has proper info.

Dell W4201C half black screen


It should be easy enough for a Novice to fix.
Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

You have a bad light engine or in Sony TV sets, it is called an Optic Unit Block Assembly. This is a very expensive part and should not be attempted to be replaced by a novice. Call an authorized Sony repair place to have this repaired. Good Luck
