Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

Open Question

My people on my TV are blue

I have a Samsung DLPTV and it was purchased 02/03/05. The TV was just shutting itself off from time to time. Next I would turn in on and the screen would look a bit ghosty. The display looked sort of grey and blue. I would turn it off and then back on again and it would return to the correct color display. Now the people are turning blue. Like bright blue and the normal blue features such as the guide channel are in burgendy. Actually it looks like the smurfs took over. I think it my be my lamp for I have had no service or replacements on the TV since I purchased it. Help!!!

Google your model number; I suspect it is a bad color wheel--lots of these sets have a fan like noise or even a grinding sound sometimes called a high pitched whine.

The part can be customer replaceable and YOUTube has actual video instructions for its replacement.

SOURCE: TV lost some of the colors

quick simple solution that might fix it. Completely unplug the tv from the electricity for about 30 seconds. Some times especially during brown outs or black outs, the processor gets scrambled and needs to be reset. This 30 seconds of no electricity usually allows the system to reset it self correctly.

There have been a lot of problems with the Samsung sets, one dealer I know had so many complaints about the ones he sold he stopped selling them and switch to another brand and he has been trouble free ever since. To answer your question they have problems with the screens, color texture, lines, fade out to name a few, from what you have described you have at least two or three issues, considering the history I would replace it.

I have a model close to yours & mine did the same thing. Its an easy fix the problem is its over heating. Unplug the tv take all the panels off the back of the tv and you will see lots of computer boards but look for one that has heat sinks and & small fan attached to it. Clean all the dust out in that area at the minimum but best to blow out all the dust on everything.

Make sure you are discharged cause if you spark any computer board it will be toast.

42 inch Samsung DLP TV shuts off by itself. I can turn it back on and sometimes it stays on and other times shuts off within seconds. Some days it stays on all day without a problem. Other days it shuts...

I bypassed the safety switch (it was bad) and vacuumed and blew out all of the dust. So far with this set, 3 years old, I have replaced the bulb twice,it exploded both times, and the color wheel which also exploded! We love the picture but the next time it goes out, it goes out to the trash and I will purchase a top of the line LED/LCD set. No moving parts!!! Samsung designed and manufactured a whole bunch of lemon sets and will not admit it. I have found several hundred complaints about their DLP sets and only a few on other brands.

TV keeps turning off...

We have a Samsung HL-S6187W that's only a year and a half old that was having the same problem.... it would shut off for no reason... sometimes after being on for awhile but then sometimes it would shut off w/in a minute of it being on. Called Samsung support and they said to unplug and "reset" the T.V. and if that didn't happen they'd send a tech out (at a fairly steep service charge) and they would troubleshoot it. Talked to my audio/video guy that installed it all and he said it was probably the lamp that needed to be replaced (obviously for labor and parts charge). We really don't use the T.V. that much (have another flat screen 20' away in the kitchen we watch more often) so I seriously doubted it was the lamp.... plus it couldn't be turning off from over heating because sometimes it would turn off RIGHT after turning the set on.

After reading several suggestions here on Fixya I incorporated a few options to try and fix it myself and I am ecstatic to report that it's been over a month and a half, and we've watched it alot, and it's completely FIXED and doesn't turn off anymore --- and it didn't cost me a cent to fix!!! WOW!! Thanks to all the suggestions... this is a great website!!

Here's what I did:
1. Took off back lamp cover and vacuumed out the entire area (there wasn't ANY dust... but thought it couldn't hurt to clean it out anyway).
2. I disconnected the temperature sensor and cleaned off the contacts and plugged back in firmly.. (I think this is what the real solution was),
3. I then moved the "Auto Shut Off Switch" back and forth a little then made sure it was in the correct position when I replaced the lamp door cover (it's not hard to make sure it's positioned correctly).

Voila!! It's all fixed! This site has great pictures of the correct way to position the Auto Shut Off Switch and of the temp. sensor if you need it.
