Tv turns on with volume, but sometimes no picture or when there is a picture, it freezes up, sound still on, so tv turns on, but not always a picture

The freezes up is not good news for this set.

Usually it means a part that is needed will cost over 500 dollars and thus it is the end of the set.

I would first unplug the set, ANY CABLE OR SAT BOX, OR A RECEIVER IN LINE from power for a while and then plug all back,the incoming signal can actually cause this to happen.

I have an HLR5057WAX DLP Samsung tv and my picture freezes often and the tv will sometimes power off. When it freezes it will stay that way for about a minute and usually turn back to normal. Lately I have...

The lamp is usually your first replacement, but a freeze in picture may have to do with the video board or the DMD board. Try the lamp first and see if that fixes it--because you'll need a new one anyway if you're going to keep the television. Make sure to get an OEM Philips lamp for your Sammy. Buy from an authorized distributor.

If the picture & sound are ok in analogue mode then chances are you have problem with digital tuner.
This may be expensive to repair so I would advise connect external freeview box or sky etc to get digi channels using scart to connect to your TV.

TV shuts off on it's on after about 20 - 30 minutes of play

freeze like the picture is in pause?

picture freezing is desired function on the remote and handled mainly by the "picture and picture" circuits. but the video that is involved and processed there is handled by many circuits and microprocessors.
what you describe is an intermittent heat related problem if you almost can set a watch to the the shut-off time. you can feel, if your a tech, what part is running hot with a finger or start freezing a suspect part with freeze spray and see if stays on long past overdue. make sure your vent holes in the back are not covered and keep the back at least 1/2 foot from the wall.

Samsung HLR6167 - picture freezes

This is very common in Samsung DLPs. The DMD board is going bad. You will need to replace it.

TV Picture Freezes and Turns Off; Cannot Use Remote

My shop had this problem yesterday. We had to change the DMD to correct it. One of the data lines was being drawn down intermitently. This doesn't eliminate the digital PCB, but, we have seen the DMD do this more than a digital. You should have an authorized shop do the repair. Contact Samsung at 1-800-SAMSUNG or contact by email: Hope this helps.
