Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Loud cracking sound, and now, nothing

Last evening, my DLP (bought in January 2006) made a loud snap/pop noise, and the picture went out.  Turning the set on now results in the error lights coming on after about 10 seconds of no picture. I have not been able to contact anyone about this issue (weekend, no one's open), and want to know if this could be the lamp before I order one.

Re: Loud cracking sound, and now, nothing

Hopefully its only the lamp. Inspect lamp for breakage. Lamp power supply ok??. Check any air vents (filters if any) before replacing. Lamp life is only a few thousand hours, easy to do in a year, 5-6hrs a day. Check your manual.

Green screen and distorted picture sound is good but no picture

It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.

Have it service by a qualified person.

Samsung DLP loud vibrating noise

The color wheel is the most common problem in DLPs that cause noise. To determine the cause: Turn the set off. If the noise goes away after about five seconds, then, the problem is the color wheel. If the noise goes away one to two minutes after shut off, then, the problem is a fan. You can find an Authorized Servicer in your area that can tell you the price of repair, by clicking on the Samsung link:
