Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

2 Answers

Our Samsung HL-P4663W DLP is makes noise and shuts off

Purchased tv January 2006. Our first problem was that the tv shut down with all 3 indicator lights showing green. Referred to manual, which said the bulb needed to be replaced. Bulb was definately burnt out. Replaced bulb April 2008, then a few months later the tv starting making a very loud whinning noise eventually shutting tv off. Checked bulb seems OK. Reset TV, turned on and still a whinning noise, but evetually a good picture came on again only to shut down 10-20 minutes later with same whinning noise. After turning it on and off several times it never came back on. Checked bulb again, it seems fine. I called repair shop who said they are hearing about alot of Samsung problems lately. Repair tech seems to think it is a color wheel issue. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. THX - Bill

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.

My samsung dlp tv intermittently just shuts off...don't know if it is because of the lamp or what


When it shuts down, do the LEDS on the front blink? There are 3 of them. Standby, temp and lamp. Do any combination of the 3 blink when shuting down. I could tell you where to start just by those lights blinking.

THE FAN STARTED WHINING AND NOW THE LAMP WARNING LIGHT IS ON AND IT WONT TURN ON. IS THE FAN A PART I CAN REPLACE MYSELF?


It's not likely the fan - it is more likely the color wheel making that noise and causing your set to shut down. See link for more info

These models usually suffer from a bad color wheel. You will know that the color wheel is at fault if the sounds goes away right when the lamp shuts off. Look at the back of the set and watch for the lamp to shut down. The color wheel is not a consumer replaceable item.

Samsung DLP TV HL-R5667W shuts off intermittently


Afraid there is no simple answer to this. This set has multiple things that could shut it down, one may be the balest needs a upgrade , this could be why it seems to be eating lamps. Another is what sounds like a fan is a color wheel , these have known problems of failing, and when this happens sometimes they shut down the set. And finaly does the set have good ventalation, overheating can cause huge problems with this set
