Question about Samsung HLN507 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Screen shows only black and white

So, we just got this TV serviced about two weeks ago, because it wouldnt turn on. Now, as of today, it only has a black and white picture! On top of this there is a fairly loud humming coming from the back of the TV? It makes no sense to me. I have read from a few post that it could be the color wheel..?? But why the humming noise? the TV is only five years old, and for the price we paid, it should be lasting much longer than that! Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

    I believe I have the same problem. HLN507W1X never has been serviced. Picture started freezing with black and white negative image of whatever the last image was, along with a loug humming from the rear. Shut off and back on, and it work a little while, then back to the original problem. Please assist. Thank you.

Color wheels do go bad quite frequently, if you got 5 years out of the original, believe me, that's good.
The color wheel is attached be a bearing, like a fan and when the bearing starts to ware out the color wheel on the shaft starts to wobble and that's what you hear, they spin I believe around 3000rpm. Try contacting your servicer again, don't be mad, maybe he'll be kind enough just to charge you for the color wheel. I'm sorry, but that's the best advice I can give you..Good Luck...

Loud buzzing noise which became a very loud screech over the last week. Turning tv off and on seemed to remedy it. Today screen was only black and white, now no video only audio. Is this the picture...


This TV uses a lamp and color wheel. the color wheel is likely the problem since it is known to make noise over time and will eventually sieze. The repair is in the $400 range.

Noticed 2 white spots about a week ago.


It seems you have an issue with your DMD board, so pretty much you will need to replace it, those boards are running around 180 dlls, it's worth to try, but eventually you will need to give maintenance to the Tv

Bad color


Turn the color level all the way down and see if you have a good black and white picture. If your screen isnt black and white it should have a predominate tint to it. then turn the screen control for that color down to achieve the best black and white picture. then adjust your color level that should help.
