This tv have a colors wheel design in it.The tv make loud grinding motor noises or pictures flashes or freeze and pictures turn in black&white with sound.The tv colors wheel it is dying or worn out already.Don't tries to change the tv colors wheel ur self.If u don't any mechanical skills,because the colors wheel it sit way back of the tv,must take out many mechanical parts before even can come to the tv colors wheel itself to replace it.Best to hire a tv tech. to change the colors wheel,so no problems for tv funstions for later or damages more parts on the tv set,if u install the new colors wheel in the tv wrong way.

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,picture will freeze,color distortion or white dots on screens.I couldn't find the Dmd by itself but found it with the complete light engine Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : Have a blessed one!

That sounds like one of 2 things:
  1. Color wheel
  2. Light engine
Color wheel because of the losing color, but the light engine because of the picture freeze. It's very difficult to judge since I can't be there to see it. I'm leaning toward the light engine though. The only fix is to replace the DMD board, or entire light engine.

I have a samsung 50 inch dlp that I purchase in april of 05. Last night while it was on it sounded like sound fell from the top of the set to the bottom and now it makes a loud humming noise at the bottom...

what i would do is unplug the ac cord and take the cover of tv and with a good flash light take a look around the circuitry to see if you are able to locate any type of foreign object like a coin for example or a metal bracket, you did good in not turning the tv back on but don't forget to unplug it from the outlet before taking the back cover off. i hope you find it and good luck!

Black and white picture only

The color wheel is not the problem. If the spinning color wheel is impaired in its RPMs it will cause picture distortion, not black and white picture. If the color wheel looses any of its color fins, like if it is broken, there will be a loud vibrating noise inside the tv which you did not mention. Also if the color wheel is broken and doesn't spin, the tv will not start up.

The likely problem is on the digital control board or the power supply and should be referred to a local repair shop for repair.

There is an outside chance that you will receive color if you experiment with using all of the different input ports to see if you can find one that will bring back color.

My picture looks like an oil painting or cartoon

if you lose your video or weaken the video driver you just might be looking at straight color that looks funny like you described... but looking at this picture ... I see the flash from the camera and and lots of video (the black and white) but it does look dark over-all... which I would first try to reset my screen control that is located on the bottom of the flyblack.
the convergence looks fine.

Negative image and then black and won't turn off!

The negative image on the screen is the DMD board (Digital Mirror Board). The cycle sound is the color wheel trying to spin but if the DMD board is going bad, it will effect the color wheel and not spin. There for your image will freeze.
