Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

HL-5686W Shuts intermitantly shuts itself off.

Is this a symptom of a problem that will get worse. Could it be a timer that is set to turn off the lamp, in order to extend it's life? Does it sound as though the lamp is going out? I am relatively techy. How difficult is it to replace the lamp myself?

    Thanks for the help. This DLP set is only about 6 months old. I bought it from Best Buy. I also purchased an extended service policy. So, I will call them to come take a look at it. Unfortunately, it probably won't go out while the are here. It will wait to go out until I have a house full of family and friends during the holidays. That would be fun. Sister-in law is watching, and it goes out. I might pay to keep it broken.

No such thing as a timer on the lamp system, but it does have a thermal fuse.. But it would only take one overheating and the set would not come back to life on its own..
The one marked problem this particular unit has, that I've seen about a half dozen times or so, is faulty color wheels. Even though there is no video or color distortion the motor in the color wheel can begin to drag cause an excessive load in that assembly and eventually to the symptom you're describing. But it could equally be something else in the system loading down the power supply and causing the shutdown.. It's difficult to say without some testing.
You say you're "techy"... Do you own a scope, logic probe and an ESR meter? If not, better leave this one to the techs. If you do I have the service manual and could Pando it over if you'ld like to trace test the SMPS and wheel.
FYI: there is a new wheel assembly for that unit that replaces the type that unit was assembled with at the factory - under Samsung p/n# Bp96-00674a.
Hope this helps!

Canno turn the tv on.

You probably have a main or high voltage power supply problem; the latter produces the 20,000 plus volts for the CRT and gets its voltage from the main supply. It's difficult to say which is at fault without a few measurements.

Keeps shutting itself off

hi, just check whether you have set any timer. It may possible that you have set some timer, thats why it keeps shutting off!!

Or may be due to power fluctuation but it happens rarely

A convergence problem is very commond. In most cases the convergence output amplifer IC's need to be replaced. This is not something you should do. Call a repair shop.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.

First of all, you should try making sure in your menu that you do NOT have your timer set to shut off.  You'd be surprised how many people call Zenith every single day and fuss at me because their tv is 'broken' and they have a timer set.  Secondly, it sounds to me like it could be an issue with your power supply.  Does it turn itself back on randomly as well?  Do you hear any popping sounds when it turns off?  Check with your manufacturer to see what their repair warranty is.  Some have full warranties for 90 days parts and labor, and some have it parts and labor warranties for a full year.  You'd be surprised how much the customer service agents working for your tv's manufacturer actually know about the product.  Give them a call for sure to get more information! :)

TV Picture Freezes and Turns Off; Cannot Use Remote

My shop had this problem yesterday. We had to change the DMD to correct it. One of the data lines was being drawn down intermitently. This doesn't eliminate the digital PCB, but, we have seen the DMD do this more than a digital. You should have an authorized shop do the repair. Contact Samsung at 1-800-SAMSUNG or contact by email: Hope this helps.
