Question about Samsung Televison & Video

3 Answers

My Samsung 650 series 61'' DLP tv turns on and off repeatedly. I heard a buzzing noise and shut the tv off for a while. I plugged it back in and it still turns on and off but I didn't hear the buzzing noise. What would cause that and how do I fix it?

    ok I cleaned the areas you said too and it still turns on and off. Earlier I heard that buzzin sound and smelled something. When I put my nose close to it I can faintly smell the same thing. Did something blow?

    I cleaned the cooling fans and the areas under them but it still turns on and off. Earlier I heard a buzzing noise and could smell something. When I put my nose close I can faintly smell the same thing. Did I blow something? How can I fix it?

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The most probable cause is the 'Colour Wheel' due to which TV is producing a buzzing noise and shutting it off for a while. You need to replace the Colour Wheel. If you want to do it yourself then you can follow the procedure from this link---

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

This would either be a faulty relay or power supply. Power supply failure is quite common especially in newer tv sets

    You can test the relays with an ohmmeter in the ohm setting. You can test any capacitors with a capacitor tester and get the values from the service manual. If it is turning on, that is a good sign. It may be capacitor that is faulty.

Hi,

The Tv getting shutting down is a generic problem for all Samsung DLP Tv , the solution is

1. Unplug the t.v
2. Put on some plastic, rubber or latex gloves so you dont shock anything
3. Remove the lamp cover
4. Remove the big cover that covers the back of the t.v.
5. You will see a small fan and behind that is a heat sink.
6. Remove fan but don't unplug it.
7. Clean all the dust off the fan and heat sink and any boards you see covered in dust. Use a dust off can or use a cloth but be carefull.

Note: The tv has a heat sensor in it and when it detects that the tv is above operating temp it will turn off.. Dust stops it from cooling down and keeps in the heat which overheats it.

8. Screw the fan back on to the heat sink
9. Replace all panels taken off. If you don't the tv will not turn on
10. Plug you tv in and turn it on...
11. Every thing should work normal now

Note: If you had color or picture problems these steps won't help that. Best to call Samsung for those type of repairs.

    Try lowering the backlight to less than 10.

    This seems to be a known issue with this model.



    It could be the cooling fan, and usually the noise is higher when the picture is dark or has a high contrast.
    If your TV is still under warranty, then the best thing to do would be to get it replaced. If not, you may need to call in a qualified technician to look into this.

No picture on my samsung 61" dlp.


The color wheel if bad enough, will cause the lamp not to light. If the lamp is truly bad, you can't usually tell by just looking at it unless of course it is broken.

Projection tv has really loud buzz or hum


You may not see any deterioration in the picture when the color wheel begins to go bad. The noise will get louder and eventually, it will shut down or the wheel will shatter while the motor continues to spin. If that happens, you'll have a black and white picture.

If its a Samsung DLP that is mercury vapor lamp driven, its a safe bet the color wheel is going bad.
