Question about Samsung 50" Slim-Depth DLP HDTV
I have two major problems with my Samsung 50" DLP. First problem is when the TV is working I have green horizontal lines over about 1/2 to 3/4 of the screen. When I shake the tv the lines disappear for a few minutes. Then the problem returns. However recenlty the tv has turned off by itself. I have unplugged the tv and it has reset itself but now it simply will not come on at all. Has this tv gone to tv heaven or can it be fixed. It is about 3 year old. I have replaced the bulb just last October and the picture was fine for a number of months and the bulb does not now appear to be the problem. Help
A repair will cost between $200 and $300.
Definitively worth the repair.

If you were advised to replace the DMD board then you will be charged around $300-$350 however replacing the lamp will be more expensive around $400-$450. You can contact Samsung and also please click on this link to find your local repair center.
Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Yes I am afraid it has to be repaired by a TV technician. The issue which can cause this problem are
1 HT transformer which boosts the voltage supplied to the CRT to approx 11 KV.
2 Either the Horizontal IC or the vertical IC needs replacement(most probably the horizontal IC
3 other accessories near this HT circuit like Capacitor also may need replacement since the TV has tried its best(with your helpful kicks) to cope up with this voltage problem and as heat increase, chances of soldering melting and causing loose connections, which now does not make any contact, thus refusing to switch on.
If you have practical experience in repairing TV sets and also possess a multi-meter you could have had a try, but insufficient experience leads to more problems. My firm advice is to get it checked by their authorized service center, and obtain a guarantee on the part replaced............sodeep
