My Samsung 42"DLP displays wavy lines when connected to DVD

My television's picture is beautiful when viewing television but when a DVD player is connected, there are wavy lines that go across the screen.

The DVD still plays but the picture is very wavy.

I have tried 3 different DVD players. A Sony, An Emerson and a Panasonic.

I have also tried using both the RCA video connections and the S Video ports all with the same result.

I believe it must be something with the way my tv processes signals from a DVD player. Does anyone have any ideas?

That chirp indicates a feedback on the secondary transformer in the switch mode power supply and needs to be either repaired or replaced. A good shop can have this one back up in an hour or so - assuming they have the parts on-hand... If they have to replace the SMPS you'll naturally have to wait a few days. Most shops don't have such specific parts on-hand and will have to order it.. Replaced an entire SMPS for an Akai recently with the same symptom, chirping. Turned-out to be the regulators and two MOSFET's. A MOSFET is a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor.. In laymen's terms a switching gate. But below the two MOSFET's, when they went thermal they burned the board and several small traces which could not be bridged. The SMPS was $70.00 plus shipping, and you're probably going to be somewhere in that ballpark on this too if the whole SMPS has to be replaced. Good Luck Bill

Cable TV: Connect the LCD TV to the cable with CATV and Digital cable. Preset the cable TV channels into memory with Auto Scan function when using a cable TV system. Make sure you set the INPUT SOURCE properly (TV, VGA, S-Video, etc)

TV's do NOT accept all computer resolutions. You must keep trying the various resolutions of the computer until you find one that works.

I believe 1280x768 normally works for most TVs.

AOC PD4264 Screen fault


Extremely blue color temperature that cannot be adjusted; some false-contouring artifacts in dark scenes; no picture-in-picture; limited connectivity with just one DVI and no HDMI inputs.
If use as a TV monitor:
The number of colors you can display is controlled by the video card installed in your computer. In order to display more than 16 colors, the proper video card driver must be installed. Contact your computer or video card manufacturer to obtain the latest driver from them.
If you are watching standard-definition or Cable/RF signal on an HDTV, the picture may appear to be of poor quality. This is because the TV is designed for viewing HD or at least digital content. Your best bet would be to upgrade to a Dish Network HD receiver and connect it to the TV with an HDMI cable. Similarly inputting analog signal to TV from your DVD player will not appear to be of great quality. A newer DVD player would most likely have component video output which would look much better. To get even greater quality, an upconverting DVD player connected with an HDMI cable would look the best. You could also upgrade to a Blu-ray disc player, which is capable of playing HD Blu-ray discs as well as DVD's at higher resolution. A less expensive choice could also be a streaming media box. Hierarchy of inputs for good picture quality:

I have a SAMSUM HL-T6187SA DLP LED 1080P. The problems I see are a Green Tint and the RED(s) display as Blue(ish). John


Hi,

It sound likes the problem of your unit is the light engine. This is very common problem on Samsung DLP TV's and tons of complaint regarding on the picture quality. If you search "Samsung DLP law suit" you will find various comment regarding on the issue.

This part is an expensive one and I would advice you to call Samsung service department (1-800-726-7864) to let it diagnose by their Technician and see if they would cover the parts.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Once connected, with a Samsung TV, you need to press the SOURCE button on the TV remote control to view any external sources such as your DVD player.

The ‘NO SIGNAL’ message would indicate there is no signal, if you have not tuned your channels in, this may be the digital tuner you are viewing. Press the source button whilst a DVD is playing in the DVD and see if an image displays.

Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.
