Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Dlp vertical lines

I have a 2 year old Samsung 50" dlp tv.  I recently started having problems with vertical lines across the screen.  (e.g. lll  lll  lll  lll)  They are in sets of 3 or 4 about an inch apart, with a larger space between each set when a movie has predominately dark colors.  When the screen has mostly light colors, the lines are 1" apart across the whole screen (llllllllllll).  It looks like the colors in the lines are offset from the colors on the rest of the screen, or shifted 1".  They are there from the moment we turn it on until we turn it off, and they will not go away.  We have unplugged everything and plugged it all back in.  We have cleaned inside of the set.  It doesn't make any noises that are out of the ordinary.  We are not finding any solutions, although other people seem to be experiencing similar problems.  It isn't under warranty, which doesn't matter when no one knows what is wrong!  Samsung seems clueless on the problem.

Re: dlp vertical lines

The person you talked to at samsung is more than likely a customer support rep that does know anything but what his computer tells him. i have seen this symptom several times in many makes and models. if you can give me your full model number i will give you a part number to fix this issue.

Threaten to sue samsung until they stop receiving calls or you have a new dlp in your house paid for by them! you wont be harrassing them since legally theyve replaced your defective part with another defective part.paying for a dmd board is stupid when you can pick up a used dlp for much less on ebay!

Re: dlp vertical lines

I have a samsung LN-S2352W TFT-LCD TV. After you have the TV off for a little while and go to turn it on I get vertical lines of all different colors and no picure but you can hear the sound just fine. After I wait like 5 minutes the picture will pop on and no more seems like too TV has to warm up first. I just started having this problem for about a week now and I have had this tv for about 2 years.

Dlp problem

The unit has a defective light tunnel contained within the light engine. This part is not easily replaced and you will a qualified tech to replace it. Many service centers condemn the light engine at a much hight cost. Do not buy or let someone tell you the light engine must be replaced. This repair requires only the light tunnel.
