Question about Samsung HLP4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung HLP 5063W

Hi 6 weeks ago we replaced the lamp in our Samsung DLP 5063W TV, the color wheel needed to be replaced too but we tolerated the screeching color wheel and watched TV while waiting for a back ordered color wheel. Before the color wheel arrived the noise became unbearable, there was a popping noise and the screen went black. The new bulb, with likely less than 100 hours of viewing time on it, appears to be fine but we put the TV away, awaiting the color wheel. Now the new color wheel has been installed. We turn on the TV and get the blinking lights on the switch--all three blinking and then switching to "lamp" blinking--but no picture and no sound. We have double checked all connections.

Re: Samsung HLP 5063W

Hi it sounds like the problem is with the convergenge ics these can be replaced but the problem usually comes from a bad resistor this causing the ic to go.
The only problem is without having the proper testing equipment in front of you you could keep guessing and never find the problem the best thing to do is if you dont have the equipment nor the knowledge of diagnosing the problem it is best left to somebody who know what they are looking for.
I see this problem often on these sites and it all comes down to the convergence ic failing they usuall fail to a resistor failing on the main board the board will need testing and tracing back from the ics to eliminate any resistors that could have failed.
I have seen alot of people that have replaced the ics without checking the resistors and then they have the same problem shortly after.
The resistors tend to start failing shortly after the warranty has run out.
The cheapest sollution would be for you to take the tell yourself to repair shop as calling somebody out might charge for the call out and for transporting the tell.
Their isnt much you can do yourself but if you need it i can get the spec sheet for you so you can follow circuit diagrammes let me know what you want to do

Samsung hlp-5063w no picture when its on

Do you have three flashing lights on the front? You most likely have a problem with your lamp or color wheel. Those two component combined are pretty much the guts of your TV. If you are handy, you can replace those parts yourself. I have a 50" Samsung DLP and I've already replaced those to items myself. Otherwise, you can contact Samsung at 1-800-SAMSUNG and they can assist.

I bought my parts using Amazon, had them shipped to me, and took an afternoon to take about the back of the TV; documenting everything and taking photos of the progress, until it was done. There may be video tutorials on Youtube. There was for my model (HLS5086). Here is a great link to help you along. Good luck.

My Samsung HLP-4667W DLP TV has no picture when I turn it on.

The color wheel can be ruled out by looking at it---it faces the lamp and can be seen---look to see if any segments of the wheel are missing or if the wheel is totally shattered.

Other than the wheel I am concerned by "blue splotches etc" as it might be a DMD gone bad. Look at the attached photo and the color wheel first.

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

My DLP TV wont turn on.

As part of the power up sequence on the Samsung HLP-4336W the lamp isn't turned until timing pulses are detected from the color wheel. The color wheel motor is powered through the flat brown four conductor ribbon cable and the timing pulses are detected over the the three conductor ribbon table.
