Samsung HL R5067W Problem

Darkened band about 1 inch wide down the left side of the screen. The complete image is there, but just darkened in that band. Since the optics are rotated, I suspect that something has slipped down between the lamp and the imaging surface. I removed the lamp, but could see nothing from the (limited) view offered.

You have a bad Light Tunnel in the Light engine, you can replace the engine, or try to replace the tunnel.

TV has started to make a really loud humming noise, then sounds like a siren noise after you turn it off and now it has started to turn off by itself. Thinking maybe a fan? Worried it may cost more to have...

It could be 1 of 2 fans (fans are around $30.00 each) or more likely it is the color wheel beginning to fail. Color wheel will cost around $180.00-200.00, plus labor. I would recommend calling 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center. Part should take an hour to an hour and a half to complete repair.

We have a dark area on the left side of the screen about one inch wide from the top of the screen to the bottom. What could be causing gthis

Have you moved the unit recently? If so you may have dislodged the projection unit and have something blocking the left side. Another possiblility would be a bad video card which is not turning on soon enough during the scan. You also may want to check the display format to make sure it is in the proper format for the signal you want to display. Let me know how this works out.

3 problems 1. TV shuts off and on automatically. 2. 2 inch band on left side of screen 3. No picture at all

The band or shadow on the left side of the screen definitely sounds like a defective light tunnel.As for the intermittent pix and shut down this could be the lamp if you have not already changed it.

I have a Samsung HL-R5067W DLP HDTV. I have HD cable from Comcast. My TV plays the HD signal flawlessly. The non HD channels have columns and rows of colors on the screen. The picture can sort of be made...

this could be 1 of 2 things--either the light engine or the digital board--i'm betting on the board because hd cable is good--light eng/cost prohibitve--board maybe !!

Shadow top to bottom of screen on left side about 2" wide...

This can be the sync wheel assy, failure in the drive circuit for the display chip, or an illumination fault. You will have to give the set out for service.

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.
