Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My 3 year old 5065W will not show a picture at all. For a while, when I first turned the set on, sometimes I could hear the light engine trying to start the set up, but it would recycle and I would get no picture. Sometimes I could unplug the set and then plug back in and the problem would go away. This only happened every couple of months. Recently this happened and unplugging did not help. I used a dust blower to blow out the back of the set through the vents and the TV started working, but only for a couple of hours. When I turned it off, it would not start back up. Next, I took the back cover off and tried to clean off all the dust I could find. When I turned the set on, it worked. I watched TV for 2 hours with no problem. I turned the set off and on and it worked fine. But the next day, when I tried to turn it on I could not get a picture again. Now I am stuck. I had a technicial look at it and he said I need to replace the Light Engine which would be over $1500 except they do not make them for this set any longer. Samsung says they still make the components that make up the Light Engine but they would be more than $1500. Of course it is not worth nearly that to fix a 3 year old 50 DLP TV. Plus, I cannot believe it needs a new light engine when it was working intermittently. I believe my unplugging, dusting, cleaning worked because I have loose connection somewhere and must have reconnected it each time I was moving the set around. Where do I go from here? Anybody want to buy a used 5065W that won't work?
