The jumper is a small rectangular plug with a band of metal across the top and is in a opening on the DMD board(the metal box on the back of the light engine -----if the plug is there remove it with either a small needle nose pliers or a hemostat.

Things looking blue point to the jumper that just needs to be removed.

Let me know what happens.

My samsung HL-R5087W tv has a darker than usual picture and then it shuts off and the display has a triangle with and exclamation mark in it. Can someone help me please??? I have already replaced...

Sounds like the color wheel is going bad. Samsungs are notoriuos for this. Sometimes you can hear a whinning noise comming from your set. This is caused by the bearings in the color wheel going bad. If your set is more then a few years old. more then likly it is the color wheel. But to me, after all the color wheels in Samsungs and light engenes in the sony's, I would choose the Samsung. Has a better picture

After replacing color wheel horizontal is out of whack. how do you adjust?

Hi once you've replaced the color wheel you shouldn't get any horizontal lines,if you do it might be an issue with the dmd board,This is how the dmd works: Basically the dmd is a chip that carries 2 million pixels that create the image and colors .When its bad it will cause pixilation,color discoloration or stripes.I found dmd with the light engine Good luck and God bless you!

When i turn my tv on it sounds like a high pitched it the motor?? Still turns on no picture quality issues just a loud noise that accompanies the picture

Thats your Color wheel But acorrding to what I researched you have to Replace the whole optical Module part# 9NK3797086200 which is optical module,light Engine & Colorwheel Encompass Parts do not have it in stock but they List its Price $1,930.00 core refund $1,030.00 cost of total replacement is $900.00 you can call them to find out 1-800-638-3328 or try UED 1-800-648-6657. See if you can just replace The Color Wheel itself because that is what is Bad! OR are you better off to just replace the whole unit!

Color wheel, filter broke

There are suppliers of color wheels. But you are better of letting a professional put it in. They are not cheap & can break easily.

Loud buzzing sound

Hello Jack,

That buzzing might be two things. It could be the color wheel or the ballast for the bulb. To check this you will have to move the projection section of the TV out of the case and listen for the sound in the area of the color wheel and the ballast. Try removing the color wheel power to see if the buzzing stops if it does then it's the color wheel is not and the ballast is buzzing then It's the ballast, and it will need replacing or if you know electronics you could try fixing the old ballast (I would suggest getting a new ballast).

Better still if you are uncomfortable working on the set you could get a qualified TV repair person to repair your TV .

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Course and fine Convergence adjustments

You don't need to raplace all the resisters! Only the bad ones. Remove one lead of each fusible resister out in front of the STK's & check for the ohmage by their color band. You will find the bad one or two resisters causing your problem.
