Mottled background color on Samsunf DLP

I have a Samsung HL-R5688w. Every once in a while I notice the color in background scenes starts to look patchy and mottled. I don't see any problem with things in the foreground. For instance people in the foreground look OK but if they are standing in front of a wall, the color on the wall starts to look patchy. It's distracting. I was wondering if this was a color wheel issue even thouhg there is not audible screeching that I've read about. Any ideas?

Its possible that the speed of the color wheel motor is starting to drift from the normal range. Its also possible that the DMD board or digital P.C.B. are the culprit.

Contact an authorized Samsung service center, ask them to try to reset the wheel speed using the index delay parameter in the service menu.

They should be able to eliminate the problem or at least identify it as a bad color wheel or otherwise.

Samsung HL-R5688W DLP TV Screen Burn


I don't know where you got the information that burning could not happen but that is completely wrong. If it is a monitor, tube tv, LCD/LED, DLP or any other kind of viewing device it can burn. With that out of the way if the lamp warning is coming on then it is time to replace it but your image problems are deeper than that. The screen appears to be separating. By that I mean there are three layers and sometimes more depending on the manufacturer that display color. Think of it like saran wrap laired on top of each other. As they get old or of poor quality they start to separate and show some pretty funky imaging. Without the TV in my shop I most certainly cannot 100 percent say for sure that this is it but I would strongly consider this as not fixable.

Mottled background


Sounds like you may need a new lamp according to my Samsung DLP manual for a HLR4667W.

"Why do I need to replace the lamp?
The lamp used in a DLP TV has a limited lifespan. For the best screen quality it needs to be
replaced periodically. After replacing the lamp, the screen quality will be bright and clear as new."

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 !!

You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.
