Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Picture Freezes The picture freezes and the only way to fix is to powerdown and powerup the set. This has been happening for a while now only getting worse sometimes the picture will be fine for up to 30 mins. before the freeze and sometimes 30 secs. I am totally in the dark as to cause. I think possible dust intrusion causing color wheel to stop but this is only a guess. Can someone help me? When the pic. does freeze it looks like a picture negitive. (photograph)

Re: Picture Freezes

I doubt from your desciption of the problem that dust is causing the problem. It sounds more like an issue with the digital board which takes care of decoding the data stream. This problem is probably beyond your capabilities but any good repairman should be able to repair it quite easily and at a reasonable cost. Good luck.

How do i fix a non responsive tv set?

Do the ballast first. That should get the picture back. The main board controls everything else.

It sounds that the digital processor board has the fault. Check and replace it. Picture freezing could only happen, if this board is faulty. Try a factory reset too.

Tv turns on with volume, but sometimes no picture or when there is a picture, it freezes up, sound still on, so tv turns on, but not always a picture

The freezes up is not good news for this set.

Usually it means a part that is needed will cost over 500 dollars and thus it is the end of the set.

I would first unplug the set, ANY CABLE OR SAT BOX, OR A RECEIVER IN LINE from power for a while and then plug all back,the incoming signal can actually cause this to happen.
