    Thanks for your solution, having read a few more problems I have tryed tapping the side of the TV and this removes and brings back the black lower part of the screen, could this also mean that it is probably a loose connection/solder joint and would this be on one of the boards that you mentioned, either the Y main board or lower buffer board?

This could be caused by the Y-main board or the lower buffer board going bad

I have a 56" DLP Samsung (HLR5668W) Right side goes solid black

The color wheels will never fix an issue like that. The only things that will cause that issue is a bad DMD board which is part of the light engine or the digital board which is not. Freak Squad need to replace the digital board.

SyncMaster 932B blinks, then screen goes black

Check all the connections and if they are all right and tight then the monitor is probably shot. The good news is that it can be repaired. It's usually around $50.00 to $80.00 to fix. Good luck!
