    PICTURE SUDENLY FREEZES [BLACK AND WHITE] BUT STILL HAS SOUND.

    THE SET HAS TO BE UNPLUGED TO SHUT IT OFF BECAUSE IT DOES NOT RESPOND TO THE CONTROLLER.

    We have exactly the same problem with the green plaid and the black and white. Then the tv will automatically shut off. The sound still works but can't get any picture for more than a minute or 2. Have replaced the bulb but no change.

That sounds like one of 2 things:
  1. Color wheel
  2. Light engine
Color wheel because of the losing color, but the light engine because of the picture freeze. It's very difficult to judge since I can't be there to see it. I'm leaning toward the light engine though. The only fix is to replace the DMD board, or entire light engine.

My Samsung HLN5065W started to freeze to a black and white


I have a problem with my HLN 5065W Samsung DLP that 3 other folks have and no solution. After the set is on from 5 minutes to 6 hours, the screen will freeze in black and white, I can turn it off for 5 minutes and it will display a good picture again. Sometimes the screen will just go dark blue, TV has to be cycled on/off to get the display back. This problem is getting worse, started as once a month, now 3-5 times a day. I have a tech background and can read a schematic, HELP.
