Question about Samsung HLM5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Picture is off kilter on Samsung HLM5065W

I will try my best to explain this:

On my set when looking at the screen there is a section of "black" around the picture (no, it's not letterbox type, it is only about an inch wide all around the screen). It is straight across on the top and bottom, but on the left and right sides, the black outline is about 3/4 inch wider towards the bottom of the screen than it is at the top of the screen. It's like the projection is off a little bit. Any advice on how to fix this?

How do i remove the green haze

one of two issues are possible here:

Model indicated has a convergence circuit= colors are skewed or even 3d looking is convergence problem. Set has Akai name but is made by Samsung--if a convergence issue can be a do it yourself repair.

I can explain what is needed if that is the problem (see some attached photos).

The other issue seen is if on a black and white picture (color turned off) stand back and look at the screen= is it yellow looking or gray?

If yellow looking the Glycol (a cooling fluid in each tube) is contaminated- usually in these sets the blue is first= no real blue leaves a yellow screen.

Look at the photos and try to tell me which issue you have.

I have a Samsung HLM5065W. The picture went out but there was still sound. No Lights on or flashing on the front. I unpluged the set let it sit for awhile then plugged it back in. Everything came on and...

Try searching for a possible "factory reset" for this brand. It will be a secret set of buttons on the remote to enter the default reset menu. I hope that gets you something to try. BTW you should have the original remote or a universal remote with all buttons communicating with the tv to do this. ie numbers, menu, up, down, left, right...

"convergence chip failure"

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

I am currently having the same problem. It started they way you are discribing, but now the TV will do that after the TV has been on for 20min and then will shut off within 30min. Then all the lights up front flash. I have replaced the bulb and that was not the problem. I also NEED HELP! Occasionally the picture on my TV will be inverted and sort of "dance" back and forth on the screen.
