Re: Screen flicker

When you turn off the set listen carefully... If the noise stops abruptly it's the color wheel, if it winds down a bit after you press power off it's a bad fan..

Problem with Samsung HLN4385WX

These sets have a color wheel in them that has been know to cause this, Many times the customer heres the color wheel bearings failing and think it's a fan failing. The part BP96-00250a is only about $95.00 and since I have changed well over a hundred would call this a easy repair but for the newbie this might be a challenge

Missing Color.

the color wheel may spin but if you hear noise when it spins it's bad. the jumper is used when replacing one type of color wheel for a nother type. so donot remove jumper unless you've replaced the color wheel and the picture is bad. if the color wheel is good replace the DMD board. if the DMD is not available replace the optical engine.
