Question about Samsung HLP5085W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

No picture w/sound and controls on front panel don't responed

The picture went out but the sound still worked and when I tried to turn the set off with the remote and front panel controls there was no response and then the signal showing a lamp failure appeared, had to unplug to turn power off. I replaced the lamp and still the same thing. Had a technician look at it and was informed the color wheel, fans, ballast and lamp check good, he thinks it might be the digital board.

Any ideas before I put too much money into this thing.

The technician you saw was correct, most likly it wasnt the lamp by istelf something in the circuit board caused the lamp to go out, you only replaced what was the results of what went wrong.

I have a Mitsubishi rear projection TV (WS-73909) that didn't turn on and had a green blinking light. I replaced the 7 DM capacitors and now it turns on. Both the remote and front control panel ca

Let me know as I can look for this---the set has a keyboard lockout that is cleared by holding the menu or another front button for more than 5-10 seconds with set on---I can find the service manual and check if needed.

I went turn on my tv the picture came on then off

Picture turned Yellow because the Blue CRT stopped working. Power turns off because the power supply is indicating a fault. you probably lost your HT (high tension [voltage]) power supply on the blue CRT (picture tube). Professional assistance is recommended. HT power supply CAN DELIVER A LETHAL SHOCK even when the set is unplugged.

Volume up then pic gone

Sounds like you have a jammed / shorted out button on the control panel... Try un-plugging the tv, and then unplug the "button panel" on the front of the tv...see if you can turn the tv on with the remote. Sometimes if one of the buttons gets shorted, it will "lock" the processor from doing ANYTHING else, as it thinks you are holding down the defective button. If this works, simply have the defective switch or control panel replaced, or just leave it unplugged and use the remote only! Hope this helps!

Remote stopped work for my kp-61hs10

Sounds to me like a problem in the tv, not the remote. A short maybe, or a bad connection somewhere.

Non Responsive 35" RCA

You are going to have to check all of the small tact switches behind the push buttons in the front of the TV set. In the past, someone may have cleaned the picture tube and the liquid dripped down onto the switches and corroded them, or one is stuck closed or the remote sensor is bad. The best way to test this would be to replace the entire switch panel in the front of the TV set. Good Luck

Will not power on. Please Help!!

Error code 12 means normal operation. On these models we have found that a switch is sticking on the control panel not allowing the set to turn on. Disconnect the control panel. You will be able to use the remote on it. To find the plugs for the control panel: Remove the speaker grill and front panel, then follow the wire to the connection. Remember to unplug the set before putting your hands inside of it. Tell me how it went. Lead Tech
