Question about Samsung HLR5067WX 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

White vertical lines in picture

I bought a Samsung 50 inch tv from best buy about three years ago. We have never had a problem with it until about a month ago. It started having white vertical lines in the picture. We shut off the tv and it stopped for about 15 minutes. We had the tv repairman out three times and he replaced the bulb, a board and now he has other parts on order. I am curious if it is the connections to the tv. But if it is the connections, wouldn't it have gone awry sooner? Has anybody had this problem in their tv? thanks, chefbutthead

Re: White vertical lines in picture

It's not connections. On that particular unit I would suspect the Digital board, Samsung p/n# Bp94-02084a or the Dmd board. Have you ever noticed the picture freeze?
In any event, sounds as though you're going in the right direction having a tech test it out, it gets highly complicated...
Not sure why he replaced the lamp - but maybe he found it was about to expire.
Good luck!

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

I have an rca model hd52w67 tv and there is a problem with the picture. the picture has a red and green picture that don't allign by about an inch. I think it is in the picture guns but i cant find a...

Do not align the guns! they are located facing up toward the mirror; they are picture tubes! covered with big glass lenses! heavy!
instead look for a red/green/blue adjustment knob on the set's front; the buttons should say: convergence or, crosshatch push the crosshatch button: once you have three vertical lines crossing three horizontal lines; just merge them using the other R/G/B knobs untill you have one white vertical line and, one horizontal line crossing in the center of the screen.
(you may have to find the controls on the remote using "setup")

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV

If your Mitsubishi TV has white spots in the picture , you can call Mitsubishi @ 1-800-332-2119 and request a free DLP Chip to fix the problem. They will send the New DLP Chip at no charge to a TV Tech in your area to install it for $200 flat rate. That is about a $250 savings if you had to pay for the chip . Call them with your TV's Model number and serial number and let them know when and where you bought the TV.
It saved me some hard earned money and now my TV is like New !

Worked a charm on my 50" Samsung DLP. Read thread carefully as there are 2 different version of the DMD chip you will need to replace. I ended up fixing mine for less than $165!

if you take the back cover off the tv, you will see in a white screw in almost every board, those are called pot. (potentiometer).
if you can get to meter the Ve. Vs. and Vset. start to screw or unscrew those white screw according to what the label says.
usually the ones who gives you the blue and red dots are the white screw on the right of the center panel, and the one on the right of the right panel right under the metal thing to hang on the wall.

Black line

I just had this problem with my Samsung 50' DLP HLR5067WX/XAA. Fortunatly it was still under warranty with Best Buy, so they fixed it for me. They had to order a brand new light engine. (or where the mirrors are, if i'm not using the right terminalogy) He said the problem is with one of the mirrors that has slipped (or slipping because overtime the black line will get thicker and thicker). I hope i'm saying it right, but it was with a tiny mirror that was slipping. Hope it's under warranty. I've also had 1x component plug burn out on me, my HDMI port went to ****, and he's gotta come back out because when he made the repair, the picture was reflecting too high up and to the left. (MLB 2k7 for xbox 360 - scores on top of screen are about 1/4th cut off). He said is next trip back to my house would result in me getting a new TV, so can't wait for his arrival! good luck with your tv
