Question about Samsung HLR5067WX 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

No picture whirring noise shuts off and on

Hi, my 50* samsung dlp stared having problems tonight. The picture started flickering and the colors were strange. I turned it off and then turned it on again. No picture and the all three lights on the on off button were flashing. I turned it off and unplugged it. I had a spare lamp so I replaced the lamp. Turned it on again still no picture, lights flashing and a soft whirring noise that stops and starts coming from the back of the tv. I called Samsung and they said it could be the color wheel the fan or both. I also saw on line that these tvs have problems with the light engine which is very expensive to repair. Any help would be great. I:d hate to spend the money for a repaiman only to find out it:s not worth fixing. The tv is a little over 2 years old.

Samsung HLP5085W DLP - lamp replaced about 7 months ago. I powered up TV and got strange colors with flickering picture. Turned unit off and triangle symbol appears with lamp showing - needs replacement....

Strange colors and flickering picture symptom shows problem with color wheel and/or dmd board.
Lamp is only light source in dlp tv and it has nothing with colors or picture flicker.
TV goes to protection mode because of some internal problem as mentioned above.
If you wish to repair tv by yourself then you should have service manual copy in hand and that can be downloaded from HERE for small fee.
Hope these info will help you.

Samsung DLP HL-P4663W - loud whistling noise while the TV is on

That most probably seems to be a future issue with your color wheel, it's starting to go out, you need to identify which one you have before you purchase one, there are two kinds, one with a gold bearing and another one with a silver bearing

Hi, you have one of two problems, either the color wheel is going or one of the cooling fans are going, the color wheels are a very common problem in samsung dlp`s, sorry I can`t nail it to a specific part but I`d bet it`s the color wheel as they are notorious for failing in samsungs, video-tek

Noise from Samsung rear projection DLP HD TV.

this noise is an indication of a bad color wheel. aa dlp uses a mechanical motor to spin a coloered segment disk. this turn the white light of the lamp into your colors of pictures. Now anything that moves will eventally break. the flickering is also an indication of a color wheel going bad. eventally this will cause the set to shut down. Color wheels can be replaced. i dont know your model so i am not sure of the exact replacement procedure. at my shop we charge average 250 for such a repair
