Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Samsung DLP TV won't come on

I have a Samsung 50" DLP TV, model HLN5056W, that I had the lamp repaired on 2 years ago. A week ago it would not come on (either with remote or with power button on side of set) unless you unplug the tv and let it reset (best guess). It would come on and play all day long but each morning had to have this routine repeated. Finally that routine has stopped working. Service reps came out to replace lamp and found it wasn't bad. Service shop says (phone person - not tech) that it is a DMB (?) board. Estimate cost $276 for board and $379 for labor. Before I invest more money into this TV (bought new 2 1/2 years ago) does that sound like this could be the problem and is this about the cost of this type of repair?

50 inch dlp, keeps turning off, been happening since set was a year old, but now it won;t stay on at all some people say scrap it instead of repair what should I do

You probably have a bad lamp. They usually last 8,000 hours. If its not the lamp, it is probably a bad power supply or lamp ballast which is about a 200-300 dollar fix.

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!

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 !

My Samsung 50" DLP HDTV keeps humming when the DLP lamp comes on.

Hi, you have one of two problems, either the color wheel is going or one of the cooling fans are going, the color wheels are a very common problem in samsung dlp`s, sorry I can`t nail it to a specific part but I`d bet it`s the color wheel as they are notorious for failing in samsungs, video-tek

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV

same problem for me ... check out this thread on AVSforums about it.

I have the same exact tv as you and had the same problem. I took it to a repair shop who told me I needed a new DMD chip and that it would be 850 to fix. I used the information in thread above to get the part number and bought the chip on ebay for under 200. Here is a link to the listing CHIP

People have had good success. I will be replacing mine tomorrow.

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!
