Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer


I had a light engine failure & replacement, the new one failed after 2 weeks. The next replacement had a horrible fuzzy digital color blurry picture, they then replace the digital board. They have cleaned up alot of the color blur (mostly the darker shadowy color areas) but the resolution just isnt there, it's like watching through a piece of plastic & I can see the digital colors fluctuating in the shadowing areas & the background--forget it--no sharpness whatsoever. Does this have to do with pixel count on light engine or digital board????

Looks like a black thumbprint blocking 1/3 of the screen. No LED's lit on front of TV. Started as black dots, and filled in almost completely. Initial lamp lasted 2 years. The replacement lamp lasted 3...

It looks like DLP chip is failing. It is installed on DMD board that in turn belongs to optical engine. Issue should get progressively worse. If you look at screen up close - you see that "tumbprint" consist of little small dark-gray squares, some of them flickering.
Cheapest solution - to replace DLP chip. instead of replacing whole optical engine.
This repair have to be confirmed (by running test patterns in service mode first) and done by professional.
Repair could cost aroung $400.
During procedure I would recommend to turn ceiling fans and other air blowing devices off. Single little dust speckle landing on the chip surface will ruing all effort and same amount of labor have to be applied yet again just to get rid of it (been there, done it).
Good luck.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...

Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

I have a Samsung HL-R5067W DLP HDTV. I have HD cable from Comcast. My TV plays the HD signal flawlessly. The non HD channels have columns and rows of colors on the screen. The picture can sort of be made...

this could be 1 of 2 things--either the light engine or the digital board--i'm betting on the board because hd cable is good--light eng/cost prohibitve--board maybe !!

Samsung HL-R6768W started making squeal noise from rear of TV. At same time lost picture and will not come back on. Sound is ok and you can hear light trying to turn on. Can fan motor not working correctly...

Look at the fan and verify its comming from the fan and not the power supply unit, you can clean the fan or replace it, but yes the fan would be likly the problem. Make sure you double check the power supply unit and clean if its needed,

Samsung hl-r5067w 50" DLP no picture

I have a solution for The United States of America! "If We Don't Make It, We Don't Need It".

Personally, I believe if we went back to actually manufacturing things in this country and stopped importing everything, a lot of these problems would STOP!

Think about it America!
