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.

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

Not charging

Hello brocstar,

You could have a problem either with the power cord itself or the DC input jack on your GPS.

When you say you wiggled the "power lead" to fix the problem I believe you are referring to the actual power cord. If so, it's possible that the cord has a short that has progressively gotten worse and eventually caused the cord to fail. In that case it should be a relatively simple fix to simply replace the power cord and that's where I would start.

If replacing the power cord doesn't work then the problem likely is with the GPS itself and the unit may need factory service to repair the DC jack, battery or charge circuitry.

Hope this helps,
