Question about Samsung HLP5685W 56" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

TV keeps cutting off and won't show a picture. There is a symbol I don't understand...

My TV has a Triangle (with an ! in the middle of it) with a lightbulb below it to the bottom left in the "circle" above the tv contronls. When I try to turn it on, it comes on and I can hear sound, but there is no picture. I wasn't home when it went out, but my nanny told me that it just cut off. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Eric

    I replaced the bulb and it worked for a month. Now the tv constantly turns on and off. It makes a weird noise like it is a motor powering up and down. Any help would be appreciated

Your light bulb is dead and needs to be replaced. You can access the bulb in the rear panel by removing a few screws. The bulbs go bad every 3 years or so. Good luck!

How do you turn on the volume? Thank You.


1. Press the Fn key and while holding it down, press the F8 key momentarily to toggle muting of the speaker. An icon of the speaker appears at the bottom middle of the screen showing muting on or off.

Samsung HLP5085W DLP - lamp replaced about 7 months ago. I powered up TV and got strange colors with flickering picture. Turned unit off and triangle symbol appears with lamp showing - needs replacement....


Strange colors and flickering picture symptom shows problem with color wheel and/or dmd board.
Lamp is only light source in dlp tv and it has nothing with colors or picture flicker.
TV goes to protection mode because of some internal problem as mentioned above.
If you wish to repair tv by yourself then you should have service manual copy in hand and that can be downloaded from HERE for small fee.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Warning symbol on mini cooper


If it is yellow and looks like a tire it is the flat tire light, and you should check his tire pressure. if it is a yellow triangle with an arrow going around the triangle with a exclamation point in the middle this is your DSC or ASC and if it is on all the time these features are inactive and you should hit the DSC/ASC toggle switch to the right of the drivers window switch. If this symbol just flashes briefly this means the DSC/ASC is presently activating. thest are the tow that I can think of, I hope this helps.

Good Day, lawrentzsca;
Sounds like bad convergence IC’s, chips. Hit recommends using STK392-150’s and replacing the bias resistors.
Good Luck, Big Irish, but hope the TV is fixed by now.
