    I as well have a flashing white screen, almost as if the subjects are getting thier picture taken. The lamp light on the front was flashing so we changed the lamp and it helped for a week. It seems to only be happening when it gets hot. We opened it up and cleaned out the dust and it worked perfectly again for about a week. Not sure what to do, and dont want to put anymore money into this thing. It is a samsung DLP HLN5065wx. Please help...

    Similar issue about the white flashing, with my Samsung DLP TV model HLN-467W. It starts after about 20 minutes, but if I place some external computer fans in the opening right above the exhaust fan vent, blowing in, I can alleviate the problem for a long period of time. What I've noticed is that the exhaust coming out is a lot cooler when I do this.

    I talked to a technician who thinks it might be the color wheel, but we were leaning toward replacing the capacitors on one of the boards. Using the fans, effectively cooling the bulb better, kind of makes me lean toward the color wheel now.

    Does anyone have any new info on this issue to help me out? I really want to keep this baby going for a few more years while the 3D TVs come down in price.

I sold electronics for sears for years and let me just say that samsung has a great picture and good price but they have a wide spread reputation for having bad mother boards and they know it if you buy one always get a extended waranty you will need it.

TV picture goes out after 10 minutes of viewing with popping sound


It can be a couple things. Something bad on the power board. Or the vertical output circuit. How long ago did you purchase the television. Your best course of action is to have it serviced.
If you need any information or other assistance let me know.
Thanks,
