Select TV input, Press Menu, Select Channel, in menu Antenna=Cable (for you), (then perhaps, Auto Program with Cable or Air+Cable), tweak Channel List, turn on LNA if needed, shouldn't be.
Somewhere there may be different modulations, some offset the channel a fraction and are important for channels above 13. I'm basing this on my non-cable Samsung HL-T5687.
BTW, I had an HLS until it gave trouble, paid for an upgrade to LED from bulb when I got HLT. Very pleased, until it fails. -Ken

First when I turn it on it's okay for a few minutes ,then it starts to flicker and shuts off.Three lights are on Standby/Temp/Lamp Temp and Lamp lights are blinking.


Try unplugging the TV. Remove the back panel and vacuum the dust out. Sounds like the unit may be overheating and the thermal shutoff is operating to prevent fire. Be careful not to move the projection lenses out of alignment. It is also a good time to clean those lenses carefully. It will improve your picture a lot.

This is a known problem to Samsung. A chip has gone bad and Samsung was replacing them at no charge a couple of years ago. Google this problem and try to locate a contact number and call them. If they are still covering this issue they will send a tech out to repair it in-home.

I have a Samsung HL-R5067W DLP HDTV. I have HD cable from Comcast. My TV plays the HD signal flawlessly. The non HD channels have columns and rows of colors on the screen. The picture can sort of be made...


this could be 1 of 2 things--either the light engine or the digital board--i'm betting on the board because hd cable is good--light eng/cost prohibitve--board maybe !!
