Green Plaid lines on Samsung HLR5067wax/xaa-

These are the Tests that should be run to determine which board is bad.You should call a good TV Tech if you are not familiar with this TV.
- The DDP1011 on the DMD board has a feature to display internal test patterns.
- DNle, which is an end port in the digital board, has a feature to display internal test patterns.
- The analog board sends signals to ADV7402 on the digital board.
- The analog board is the first output and the digital board is the second one, followed by DMD, which is the final one.
■ Diagnosis By Module
1. Access Service Mode
(In Standby mode, press "Mute", "1", "8", "2" and "Power" to turn the screen on and enter service mode)
2. Check if there is an error in the DMD board
DDP1011 → TEST PATTERN → Press the right arrow key:
Options of FULL WHITE, BLACK, RED, GREEN and BLUE PATTERN are displayed on the screen.
If "Pattern" does not appear, this is a DMD board error.
3. Check if there is an error in the digital board before the DMD.
When the DMD board has been determined to be error free based on the test patterns:
FACTORY MODE → DNIe → TEST PATTERN normal display: no error in the digital board.
If "Pattern" does not appear, it may be from a DMD board or ATI error or there is an analog board malfunction.
4. Check if there is an error in the analog board.
Check for a power signal from the analog to the digital boards

Green Plaid Screen

Are you able to access the on-screen menus (like brightness/contrast etc)?

If those menus are appearing over the green screen, then it might be a cable or image source problem. I've often seen this green screen when the HDMI encryption between my cable box and my TV gets messed up. Only solution has been to power cycle the cable box.

If you can use something other than an HDMI cable to connect your TV to your picture source, I suggest trying that and seeing if you can get SD channels again. If you do get them back, it was a cable issue. If you still can't get them, contact your cable/satellite provider, see if there's something up with their signal.

5 mostly green verticle lines on all digitle channels. HD ok.

I just called customer support and my issue is now fixed, to my extreme surprise.

It sounds silly (and a tad embarrassing), but here's what I did:

1) Unplug the TV
2) Wait 30s
3) Plug the TV in
4) Test

Apparently even if the TV is "off" for a few days it never fully shuts down unless the power is unplugged. Not sure if this will help anyone else, but I had the exact same problem others are describing. Good luck!

Samsung HLR5067 flashing green

Thank you!!!! Our power was off due to new transformers being installed in the area and we had no clue how to fix this. I called around and no one seemed to know the answer (not even Samsung, who only wanted to tell me my TWO year old tv was out of warranty),so I tried this and it worked perfectly!!! You saved me a bundle! Thanks!

Green Plaid Screen

I think what you are describing is a form of line paring which is caused by a defective IC in the video circuit those inputs are feeding. Post a email link ad I will send a pic of a screen that has this problem and you can let me know if thats what your experiencing.

apparently this is caused by a surge in yr electricty supply- burns 4 or so IC's and a part called SPF- Samsung dealers can do the repairs for you but since ist power related, its not under warranty.hope this helps
