Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Samsung S5687 w/hl shuts off after 20 seconds

The TV has worked fine for the 13 months since I bought it. Xmas morning I turn the set on and 20 seconds later it, the screen goes black, then a few seconds after that, the set shuts down. I then get the three lights on the front blinking. I tried unplugging for awhile and messed with the little blue switch by the bulb door. The one fan I can see still runs. The same scenario plays out every tme i turn the TV on. The TV gets alot of use (8-9 hrs /day) but would have thought the bulb would last longer. Do you think its the bulb or should I call a Tech?

Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

SOURCE: Samsung HL-P5663W, picture goes black after some time

I fixed it. Went back in after a twenty min. break, figured if it's broke I can't break it again, might as well try to fix it(out of warranty, so much time on 1st. bulb, after fixing I found out had 8463 hrs. on 1st. lamp! WOWW most i've seen on any strings out there,and I'm really cheap and inquisitive) But this is how I did it. pulled off covers. looked around pulled light box out checked connectors and resistors visually for burns, none found, then I see a clear plastic sleeve covered group of wires it was plugged up at the ballast where i was working earlier but not the other end, so i looked around for the plug to insert it, couldn't see any where. I felt on top of a silver polished panel w/holes allover, there on top, at the right side of the silver panel was a plug for it. I plugged it in by removing fan and cooling fin assembly, for room to work(and good chance to clean dust from the fins and fans. I tilted silver panel down to see the top, after some removing spring loaded screws holding cooling fins, (the screws ave very light spring tension and won't pop out, I swear, keep track of springs for reassembly later) plugged it in(only goes one way, don't force it, flip over if it doesn't fit nicely) replace all removed parts in reverse order and reinstall covers, plug up, and mine powered on almost instantly. After that and spending 2 hrs. online trying to go through all the strings everywhere about these problems. It came down to trial by fire. I hope this helps, reply if it doesn't.

how extended is that warranty, and what does it cover? Sounds to me like a classic video controller board about to fail.

It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.

I can turn on the tv and it's fine for about 20 min then the screen goes black with sound. I turn it off for a minute and it's fine for another 20 min. Like it's overheating.


It might also be a bad solder connection, short of checking voltages what I have done in this type of situation is with back off use a small fairly high speed fan - a hair dryer set to cool works, to cool areas of the boards inside to localize which board is causing this, with the set in failure, got it? it goes out cool it with a handheld hair dryer with air set to cool, when you find the spot where the problem is it will either instantly come back or try to.

Do it a few times to confirm which board is bad and locate a replacement board and swap it out.

The set will need to be properly diagnosed to narrow down the problem. You could be looking at a bad inverter, bad CCFL lamp, fault in power supply or main board.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.

We seem to have had the same problem. Green light keeps blinking but will not turn set on or off. I unplugged the set for a few minutes, plugged back in and works fine but will happen from time to time for no reason.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions

Tv reacts very slow


the problem is due to the crystal which sets the speed of the processor and it may be dry due to heat if that crystal is replaced or dry soldered the problem can be solved
