Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Samsung DLP 50

I hope someone could help me with this problem: I purchased a Samsumg DLP 50" TV about 3 years ago, of course i did not get the extended waranty, and the TV started to go bad after the second year. The first problem that I had was tha i had green horizontal lines with sahdows across the whole screen. After searching on dirferent forums, it seemed that the video card had gone bad, which will cost over $1,000 to repair. I did not give up, and i noticed that if I used the TV as a PC monitor, the screen will work perfectly. So i purchase a hardware to concet my digital cable to my PC and projected on my TV as a monitor. At the end, the software was $25.00, a ste of Wireless key board and mouse for $40 and I fixed the problem for a total of $65 I fixed my screen problem and had digital quality TV at no aditional cost. Woks perfet when seein DVS on your PC. Now after 6 moths i'm starting to have a second problem: I now have a Black vertical line on my left side of the TV monitor that seems to be getting bigger as days go by, started at about 1" wide and now is abou 3". Does any one know what could this be? you can still see a picture behind this black line, but it is very dark. Is this the end of my TV, should I finally give up my battle and purchase a new one? Thanks Danny F. I also have green lines and sometimes the picture goes out completely for several seconds. Occasionally when the tv is on and I am watching cable the picture is snowy and then goes blank on and off. If I unplug the power source and plug it back in the problem goes away for several days. One other problem though, I cannot watch DVDs - they are only green wavy lines and no fix found. I did replace the light engine for about $199 a year ago. I will never buy another Samsung.

This sounds like a case where jumping to a incorrect conclusion has not resulted in the fix your were after. The problem could also be related to the power supply. Before going for another part it is best to consult a Technician who works on these all the time and get a correct direction to go before ordering a lot more parts. if you check on the internet with the symptom and model /brand of your unit- chances are someone else has already had this problem and may have the solution there for you to take advantage of. Of course each TV is different but it might be a better way to proceed than just guessing.

Chris,

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

Samsung DLP white spots


Are the spots fixed or do they move with the image? Verify that all venting is clean of dust. If the spots are fixed and upon close examination are a square shape, The device is overheating of failing. If the spots are moving with image it's a front end problem, and can be overheating as well.

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV


If your Mitsubishi TV has white spots in the picture , you can call Mitsubishi @ 1-800-332-2119 and request a free DLP Chip to fix the problem. They will send the New DLP Chip at no charge to a TV Tech in your area to install it for $200 flat rate. That is about a $250 savings if you had to pay for the chip . Call them with your TV's Model number and serial number and let them know when and where you bought the TV.
It saved me some hard earned money and now my TV is like New !

My Samsung 50" DLP HDTV keeps humming when the DLP lamp comes on.


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

Worked a charm on my 50" Samsung DLP. Read thread carefully as there are 2 different version of the DMD chip you will need to replace. I ended up fixing mine for less than $165!
