Question about Samsung HL-S5087W DLP TV

1 Answer

When turning on the TV, I hear a banging/grinding sound.

I have a HLS5087W that is 3.5 yrs old. My problem first started with the TV shutting off by itself. I would turn it back on and watch for a while, then it would shut off again. Often this occured for approx 20 minutes, then it would just stay on without shutting down. Now when I first turn on the TV, I hear a banging/grinding sound, but after 10 seconds, the TV is fine (good picture, no banging/grinding). Most days, the TV will run fine for hours, but then it shuts itself off. When turning it back on, the banging/grinding noise starts but doesn't stop. It even continues about 30 seconds after the power is off. The TV then will have to be off for several hours, before it can be turned on without the banging/grinding continuing. I have replaced the bulb, but feel maybe the ballast or fan may be the problem. What sould I try next?

Hi,

If you hear a grinding,whirling,spining or buzzing sound, that sounds to me like the COLOR WHEEL,the reason for that is because your color wheel spins at 5,000 rpms(revolution per minute) and something that modifies the balance of the disc can cause different things,Unfortionatelly the only way to check that the color wheel is working properlyis you need to check it out physically

I did some research and I found the color wheel at DM;http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-Replacement-Color-Wheel-HLS-HLT-Series-p/samsungcolor_wheel_bp96-01579a.htm?CLICK=52978

Please keep us posted.

Samsung HLS5087W picture keeps turning off. Sometimes it happens after a couple of hours and then every 10 minutes after that. recently changed both bulb and color wheel. Tv only 6 years old.


I would first check the lamp is properly seated and was it a Samsung or a generic brand? Also not indicated is does sound remain or not.

Samsung hls5087w tv comes on but shuts back off in a few sec


It could be one of 3 problems. 1st and easiest, is to check and see if the lamp has taken a dive!
2nd you need to check the color wheel....To achieve this just listen for a whirling noise as the lamp is trying to turn on! If you hear a faint dentist type drill sound color wheel most likely is good. If it is loud or vibrating or you saw the screen change color just before it shut off... It is most likely the color wheel. The Power Supply Ballast could be bad. Most likely it is fine though. If lamp turns on this is not your problem... Good luck and let me know what u find...

When i turn on my samsung projection tv, the LAMP, TIMER, and STANDBY indicators light up and the TV Shuts off after a couple minutes. Not sure what is causing the problem. TV is 2 years old


Hi,do you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on? If you do it could be an issue with the ballast which is the board that powers the lamp.It sounds like the lamp because they normally last 2-4 yrs and when its bad you'll get 3 led indicators and will shut off every few seconds.Make sure you get the Original Philips lamp you can find it on discount-merchant.God bless you!

No picture or sound


Hi, your color wheel needs to be replaced, the bearings fail causing the grinding noise, the new ones use "air bearings" so they are supposed to last much longer, video-tek
