No color The T.V. was working fine a few days ago. When moving it it was bumped very lightly against a wall. The color became distorted. Now it has no color at all, just black and white. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

Re: no color

Since you say that this happened after moving the unit (and bumping it into a wall) it would seem to be worth looking at all interconnections from board to board to make sure that they are seated securely and properly. It could be as simple as a loose wire. If you don't find any problems with the connections I would look for broken solder joints on all boards paying close attention to the video board. A magnifying device will be necessary for this or you could resolder all the connections on the video board, if you know how to properly solder. Remember safety either way. If neither of these suggestions work you will probably need a qualified tech to find the problem as it could be just about anything. Good luck.

I have a 50 inch DLP samsung and it wont power on after making a lot of noise (I replaced the lamp) worked fine for a few days now the red light and the right side green light is blinking. any sugge

The answers above are correct. It's either the lamp or the color wheel. Testing the lamp is pretty straight forward. Use an Ohm meter to see if the it's filament has continuity. It's unlikely that a good color wheel would fail immediately after changing the lamp. Look to see if some wiring is out of place and rubbing the wheel causing the noise you described. A jammed but otherwise good color wheel would cause the TV to shut down and display an error code.

Replace or resolder your convergance IC's. What is a common problem is over time the heat emitted by the chips weakens the solder joints on the circuit board. If your lucky just a resolder job is all it needs.

Tv started to shut off here and there, then the

Hi,samsung has 3 major failures.The 1st one is the lamp, which averages 6000-8000 hrs 2-4 yrs.When it's about to go bad it shuts off and on or image won't come at all.You can find your part here: Another problem that causes tv to shut off is the ballast,which is the board that powers the lamp.It makes clicking sounds and will cause pic to flicker.The other problem is the color wheel .The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.Have a bless one!

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : Have a blessed one!

Projection TV displays a bump

What happens if you were to move the set away from the wall about 3 feet. If the problem goes away, you have a large magnetic disturbance in the wall, like a dryer or A/C conduit causing the interference....accordianman

Samsung DLP HLR5668W has mostly dark picture + grinding noise

Pix looks like a light pipe issue, inside the Light Engine. as far as the shutting down, could be a bad fan causing the grinding and when stopps the DMD turns the set off.

This set has a problem in the convergence power supply. The memory in the set thinks it is a direct view television since it cannot read the convergence memory. The convergnce power supply will have to be repaired to component level since the board is nla.
