Samsung DLP TV Built in Tuner Broken?

Hi, I have a Samsung HLS5065WX DLP TV with built in ATSC/NTSC digital tuner. Its worked fine picking up 10 or more HD plus regular channels daily for over a year. We have it hooked up to a outdoor HD antenna. We turned on the tv yesterday and it said "no/weak signal" on every channel. We arnt even getting regular channels in nothing. Just fuzz. We checked the antenna/cables by hooking it up to another tv and picked up channels fine. I called samsung and big surprise we are out of warrenty. They said it could possibly be the NTSC tuner. I called the repair shop and they want $275 labor plus part costs. Is there anywhere I can buy this part myself and have my husband install it? He is very good with fixing things and if we could fix it for cost that would be great. However, I cant find the part number or parts store or anyone that has even had this problem before for that matter.
Thanks for any feedback!

SOURCE: 52G786 ATSC Tuner no longer works

I have the same exact model tv...Love it...ATSC tuners is in definition an Analog tuner. As the broadcasting companies change over to Digital broadcasting before the deadline in Febuary 2009 more and more local or Non-Digital chanels are becoming obsolete. You would have to purchase a converter box for your tv if your not planning on getting cable. Another way to gois if you have an old cable line running through you house (no incomming cable) plug you tv into that jack. That also acts as a antenna. The sweet part of all this is that your tv do have a QAM tuner or Digital tuner built in just need that digital antenna to pair it up.

Is the tuner built-in ATSC, or NTSC?


Your tv tuner is set to function on both NTSC and ATSC. See below for the reference

NTSC (National Television System Committee) is the analog television broadcasting standard used widely in North America. It is referred to as a 525-line standard, but actually displays only 480 lines. NTSC is to be replaced with new DTV (Digital TV) standards in the coming years.


ATSC (Advanced Television Standards Committee) creates the technical standards for the US digital television system (DTV). These standards are expected to be used in most new televisions, as the US television system shifts from analog to digital.

You still need to get an audio Left and right connected from the video source.And for the digital reception from the antenna source is not possible because your unit is not equipped with a digital tuner(it is NTSC or analog reception only)it needs an add on digital tuner that has an hdmi output.Newer ones now are equipped with digital tuners.

I don't know how a program it, since you change digital.


So far as I know the HLN series does not have an ATSC tuner, thus no over the air (OTA) reception. You can probably still get a $40 coupon for an OTA ATSC to NTSC converter. Note that will NOT get you high definition (HD). With Dish you can get HD receivers that do get OTA ATSC both HD and SD. With Direct, no OTA AFAIK. With cable you would need a QAM tuner, not in your TV AFAIK to get clear channels as required for locals. Otherwise cable needs a Set Top Box for digital and scrambled channels although the standard definition (SD) non-scrambled channels work with your NTSC tuner. Too bad there seem to be no ATSC to 5-cable RCA or HDMI HD converters except Dish. -Ken

How do i convert my dtv-5801 to the new free digital air waves


My information indicates that the DTV-5801 has a NTSC (analog TV) tuner built in bot not and ATSC (digital tuner). It does have HDTV inputs to which an external tuner can be connected. For Off-Air Digital TV, add an HDTV (ATSC High Definition tunner) and you are set to go. Do not buy the DTV converters, they have down converters built in and only deliver SD to the outputs.

Misubishi warrior 2 intermitant pic freezes 1 second or less


Hello frogman,

The freezing of the picture denotes a loss of signal on a digital (Having a ATSC tuner) TV. If your TV is not digital (Having a ATSC tuner) then it is the device that you have connected to the TV (Cable Set-top Box, DTV Tuner, etc). In the likelihood that it is your TV I would suggest getting a better antenna first if that does not fix the problem you may have a tuner problem. However lets not look at it that way first. What we need to do is to determine if it is the TV of whatever you have connected to the TV.
First unhook the connection you have from the cable to your F connector of the TV (you should see snow or a blank screen) connect a antenna to the F connector of the TV, do you see a snowy picture or a clear sharp picture (snowy= NTSC tuner, clear-sharp= ATSC tuner). If the tuner is NTSC then check you cable device and the connection between your TV and the device and the cabling between the device and the wall. If the Tuner is ATSC then you will have to check all of your connections, and finally if the tuner is bad it has to be replaced by a qualified Tv repair shop.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Digital or not digital


this tv has no digital tuner built in to it. In order to recieve a digital broadcast the tuner must be atsc compliant. The best solution is to get a converter box to decode digital to analog signal.
