Question about Samsung HL-S5087W DLP TV

1 Answer

We have 2 problems....dark screen/bright light on right side

We have a Samsung HL-S5087W 56" DLP - we replaced the lamp because we were having problems watching the TV during the day - it was dark and hard to see, unfortunately the new lamp hasn't helped. Secondly, prior to replacing the lamp we started noticing a pie shaped bright line running down the right side, it starts about 1 inch wide at the top right corner and disappears about 3/4 of the way down. It almost looks to me as if this bright line should be what the entire screen looks like, then I could see it during the day! The line is still there after replacing the lamp. Any assistance would be great, we love our TV !

SOURCE: 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.

I have a Samsung 42" DLP. During the daytime I can hardly see the people and definition on the screen. It is all very dark. Nightime is better.


check your video settings there are 3 or 4 usually that all have various levels of brightness, it may be set to one of thelower ones. or you can go into tv menu and try kicking up the brightness. if no luck the lamp may be failing if not recently replaced they begin to make screen darker before they fail.

Samsung DLP HL-P5063W. . .no lamp!


Remove the rear cover and check the lamp cover switch. Earlier versions used a black plastic switch holder that may break due to improper assembly. The part number for the holder is BP61-01240A. Newer versions use a metal tab attached to the engine. In this case, improper assembly may cause the lamp cover switch to be extended past its range, either breaking the switch or causing it to have an open contact. Replace the switch with BP91-01231A.

Note that in these models, when reinstalling the rear cover, it is best to remove the lamp cover first, install the rear cover, then install the lamp cover. This will make sure that the lamp switch is properly engaged.

Samsung DLP HL-S5087W 56" Confused...


Mine did that when the color wheel didn't spin up...just give it a whack where you installed the light & the wheel should spin up. I had to replace my color wheel as the bearing was shot & was buzzing all the time. The light won't come on if the wheel doesn't spin up first.
