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

2 Answers

No picture on Samsung HLN5065W

Our HLN5065 went out a couple of weeks ago; picture went dark with a pop, sound was fine. The center green light (lamp) flashes, and the set won't shut off, seems to be recycling itself, have to unplug it. Also, there is a high pitched humming. We ordered a replacement lamp, but same symptoms exist (sound ok, no picture, won't turn off, high pitched humming). Please help...

    Additional information by som_one:

    After the set "recycles" a couple of times (turns itself off/on) it acts like its fuctioning, but no picture and all 3 lights blink. Should be a bulb with that symtom alone, but we tried to fix this with a replacement bulb.

    Mine did the same thing tonight. Turned it on....then heard a pop, then picture went very dark. I could faintly see the picture but very dark. I unplugged all power to recycle and now mine does just like this persons. Sound is fine but no picture at all. I have pulled the lamp (bulb) and see fine pieces of grit inside the lamp itself. I'm assuming this is bad but can't confirm like a normal light bulb (filament is still attached). I looked up specs and found that the lamp should be a BP96-00224J (I think), but I actually have a BP96-00224C in the set. I had warranty covered issues with the picture within the 1st 9 mos of ownership (TV is less than 4 yrs old) and the tech replaced the "light engine and adjusted". Whatever that means. I hate to pay a tech to come out to change a light bulb. I'm thinking that I should order the part (curious which part # though), and give it a try. Does anyone know which part # is correct and want to weigh in with advice? I'd appreciate it. Here is my info:
    Model # HLN5065W
    Model Code is HLN5065W1X/XAA (whatever that means)
    SER # 31DX300620M
    Manufactured March 2004

    I have a 45" mistubishi that I bought in 1995. Not 1 service call, still running strong. Should've stuck with a proven manufacturer.

    No Picture on Samsung HLN5065W problem: Same indications - picture went out, 3 lights blinking, had to unplug it.  Then recycling on for 1-2 minutes (1 light blinking) and then turns off and then on again and repeats.  Prior to this, I have had a loud color wheel in the past few weeks on three occasions.  From what I can gather its probably the wheel.  SEE link below for an excellent treatment of color wheel replacement & saving of $400-500 cost (I will be trying this if the bulb replacement does not remediate the problem).

My hln5065w 50" samsung tv started flashing where the bright partof the pictures were and progressively got worse. So I bought a new bulb for it and it worked a few days and started doing it again with the new bulb. It seemed like the bulb was getting hot so I opened it up where the bulb was and put a little fan I had and poited it at the bulb. It helped for months but now it's flashing real bad and nothing helps. Does anyone know what could be wrong with this thing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You had a surface mounted capacitor (AKA "CAP") let go on one of the circuit boards, open the set up and look for a small burnt area on the circuit boards inside the TV, it is likely it will be the power supply board, but that is just a guess..

Mitsubishi WD-62531 Replaced lamp 2 weeks ago. Red light flashing again. Same problem but the lamp is fine. Sound but no picture.

You have either a bad ballast (it powers the lamp) or a bad DMD board. Either one of those will result in a no lamp fire issue. Have a technician look at it...

My 44in rca dlp picture is black and is making a humming sound

It sounds like to me theat the new lamp is faulty. If there is any pieces of glass in the lamp compartment, remove them so they will not travel and get wedged in places they should'nt be.
Hope this helps,

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
