Question about Samsung HL-R5668W 56" HDTV

1 Answer

DLP problems Hello, my model no. is actually HL-S5688W. This set was delivered on Friday, and the problem I'm having has gotten progressively worse each day. I can only descibe it as the TV is posessssed. It basically does whatever it wants whenever it wants. To be more specific, the set will freeze up then go blank then go blue then shut off then come on play for a short while then freeze then play for a while with some of the pixels dropping in and out. When this is going on I have absolutely no control over it. Neither the remote or the panel controls work. I have continuously tried unplugging and plugging the set. If the set is unplugged for several hours and then plugged back in, it will work for the first 5 or 10 minutes then the channel freezes. Meaning I have lost control of the TV. If I try to turn the set off, it will continue to play for a while then freeze, go black or blue then eventually shut off. I have contacted Samsung and they have arranged for a service call, but I have to wait a week before someone can take a look at it. I would appreciate any advice you may have.

Re: DLP problems

Since you cannot control the set with the remote, it is a main board problem
