Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

Samsung 50" fades when I turn on Vent in bathroom

Whenever I turn on the vents on the bathrooms the picture fades to black and then come back on. The volume and everything else remains. I connected it to a different circuit on the house and flipped the vent and it continues to do it. The house is less than 6 months old so I don't know if the electrician did something wrong. The TV is less than a month old and I have directv so what could be causing the problem?

Thanks, MannyB

    Yes is was, the electrician came back and we found some problems. Like he had the christmas plugs wired wrong. He had two hots wires in the same circuit making it a 220 and it burned the switch. Those were fixed but it did not fix the picture ficking. It only fades with ALL the vents in ALL 4 bothrooms. I did remove several Ceiling fans and some light fixtures and I noticed that he failed to connect the ground wire on most of them, could this cause a problem? Also, I have Directv, the Directv signal that goes to the Plasma TV that fades also continues to the kitchen LCD tv, I noticed that tv does not fade, could it be a problem with the Plasma TV? Thanks again for your help. The electrician stated that maybe we should take the TV to another house and try it, what do you think? Since we moved into this house, we lost the picture on an old tv, an older coffee maker and a brand new microwave over. I don't know if it was just coincidence or a real problem.

    Thanks again.

I would DEFFINITELY call the electricians back!!!!! I am a electrician and I would be very interested on what the electricians did, but something is definitly wrong, are you sure it is a different circuit you tried, try an extension cord to a kitchen or bath room outlet and double check, hope this helps.

    I am glad to hear some problems were found but I can only imagine if they did not wire the grounds through what else didnt get grounds? I would go get a outlet tester and check and LABEL every thing you can. The electrical inspector SHOULD HAVE FOUND THESE PROBLEMS I would identify these problems make a floor plan electrical layout write down what you found call back the electrical inspector see if they can find it (test everyone) see if they know there job, I couldn't sleep at night knowing I left someones home electricaly UNSAFE. I have been an electrician for 25+ years with 1000s of homes wired. I think you have bigger problems then what has been found maybe bad ground on the service,open grounds , ground loop,hot nuetral hearing what the electricain didnt or did wrong I would call a qualified electricain to come back.Definately not the one who screwed up,I think you might have a hot nuetral running around when one of these fans are turned on.When you find out what is wrong please let me know and tell them to buy you a couple of TVs, your plasma will not last long wired Iam in Mn.

Picture fades to black

Find the vertical IC and check for very small cracks on the solder joints of its pins and resolder (approx. 10 Pins). Also check in the same area for a 1 micro farad at 50 vdc capacitor that goes bad and replace it.

Sony KV-30HS420 turns off all by itself

This is less a solution than a work-around, but it does work for me, and it is free or low-cost.

I have had the same problem on the same Sony (model KV-30HS420),picture fading out to green then black, then turning off by itself,after which sometimes the light blinks 6 times, other times it blinks 7times. This started about four years after I bought it, which is not adecent lifetime for a CRT TV. It would happen anytime from 2 or 3 timesan hour to 30 to 40 times an hour. After getting absolutely nowherewith Sony, which was completely unresponsive and unhelpful, and which refusedto stand by their product or provide any useful information, I wasgetting ready to buy a new LCD TV, any brand but Sony (never buyanything from them again), when on a whim I decided to try one last stopgap solution.

I put a fan up against the side of the TV, blowing into the vents. Ithas been 3 days now, and not once has the fading and shutting downoccurred. So it looks like the fading out and shutting down wassomehow related to heat, and the ventilation seems to have solved it. I don't know why it should be a problem now, when it was not the first fewyears. It is also a mystery why Sony has not been able to figure thisout, since it is clear from online postings that many people have thisproblem with this model. Give this a try and see if it solves theproblem for you.

Picture faded to black, came back, faded again and had stayed black.

It seems your set has a loose conection in the high voltage circuits,in fact by now it should have many loose conections in different areas like the power supply and the horizontal deflection circuits,if you are familiar with tv service you can use the information as the first step to take,some of the loose conections are hard to see even for the trained technician but the one giving you this problem should not be hard to see,if you are not too familiar with tv service be safe and call for assistance from a servicer a least for an estimate.
