Sounds like the TV can't handle the resolution that is being supplied or it is set for wrong resolution.

Samsung HLP5063W 51 inch DLP is 4 years old. Screen scrambled?

there is a complete section in the tv that translate the different resolutions from the different out side video sources you normally use to the TV native resolution. That area has to be replaced. Is a module repair needed. Don't get scare. now days this kind of repair is normal and has to be included in the repair price to see if is economical to repair.
