Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

Shadowing on right side of TV

The right side of the television is getting shaded and is getting progressively worse. Now a darker shadow has come up on the same side. No surround sound system is connected and never has. Does anyone know whats wrong or how to fix this.

    I have the same problem and am in the process of trying to find a place to fix it. I started getting a narrow shadow literally 13 months after I bought it (1 month after the warranty expired). I didn't call Samsung until it got worse, but since the warranty expired, they weren't willing to do anything and said the issue wasn't on their recall list. I have heard it's because Samsung uses double sided tape and when the tape starts to come loose, it causes the shadows.

I had the same problem. it was the small mirriors (light tunnel)only one or two of the four mirriors have the tape. mine only had one taped. one of the other ones came loose blocking the light passing thru the tunnel on that side. you can fix this yourself (if like mine you are out of warranty) but it does involve taking some of it apart to get to the tunnel. then remove it and glue or epoxy it in place. mine has lasted for two months so far.you can go to www.avsforum.com and put in samsung shadow on screen it discribes the repair(alot of pages, it happens alot)

Replacing the "light engine" fixed the problem. The technician said that there was a felt-like lining in the light engine to prevent undesirable reflections from the insides of the light-engine hardware, and that it becomes detached and blocks an edge of the picture.

We had a dark line along the right-hand side that was like looking at that portion of the picture through a 1" strip of very dark glass.

Because the DLP is new technology, we purchased an extended warranty from Best Buy (actually, their Magnolia subsidiary) which covered it.

The new light engine was slightly different physically, and the technician had a hard time getting the picture centered and aligned on the screen after installing the new one. In fact, he gave up on the first one and fetched a second one from his truck. He also had problems with the second one, but finally got everything aligned.

Shadowing in picture


Try replacing the RF cable going from the cable box to the TV and/or AV cables. I've found that the RF cable from the cable outlet in my place to my TV caused shadowing. If that doesn't work it could be something in the cable outlet itself. I am assuming you aren't using a TV antenna.

36" CRT Toshiba has that vertical issue mentioned on here a bit


Your problem is most likely caused by a cold solder joint in the vertical circuit. Normally this is easy to find and correct. The problem will only get worse over time, but not likely for more damage to occur.
