Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Samsung HLN5065W Light Engine problem or not?

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?

LEDs Blink but TV will still not come on


This appears to be a logic problem, (address missing) in which case you would need to get a schmatic diagram in order to fault find. It could also be a psu problem, excess current, (trip) short, or excess voltage which is preventing the set from turning on, monitored by the logic hence, giving you blinking LED's.

My Samsung HLN5065W started to freeze to a black and white


I have a problem with my HLN 5065W Samsung DLP that 3 other folks have and no solution. After the set is on from 5 minutes to 6 hours, the screen will freeze in black and white, I can turn it off for 5 minutes and it will display a good picture again. Sometimes the screen will just go dark blue, TV has to be cycled on/off to get the display back. This problem is getting worse, started as once a month, now 3-5 times a day. I have a tech background and can read a schematic, HELP.

Self focus not working on samsung 5065w 50 inch asking to check factory data


As ima_rm2000 noted, the HLN is manual focus.  There is a focus ring at the base of the lens assembly.  Here is PDF of the focus assembly.  You have to remove the back of the set to access this, and tape/tie the lamp door switch closed so the TV will power up so you can focus it.
