Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Samsung DLP HL-P5674W Screen is stretched at the top and bottom...

Last week, my Samsung DLP started to cut off the very top and bottom of the channel display. It's almost like a 60 inch picture trying to be dispalyed on a 56 inch TV. Color and sound still look great and the right and left sides of the display are fine, but channels like ESPN that run a "tickerbar" at the bottom of the screen do not look right. I can see the very top edge of ESPN's tickerbar, but no details. I have tried adjusting the picture size, but the result is the same.

Any advice before I call the service guy?

Thanks in advance...

    I have the same problem on my 61" Samsung DLP. Also the Zoom 1 and 2 cannot be accessed. I'm sure someone hit a button that put it into some mode of some kind that I don't know how to exit. I've read the instruction manual which is the same for several of the different size DLP models, and it doesn't seem to address this in their normal section, or their troubleshooting section.



    Please e-mail me with a solution: BSiegel@tampabay.rr.com



    Thanks,

NEED TO KNW HOW TO REPLACE NO 2 FAN ON A SAMSUNG DLP TV HL-S50786W


Hi,

Here is Fan part# BP31-00024A. Search google, find it at various places.

Light engine assembly has to be removed. This involves unplugging various connectors between processing/control chassis on the left side and engine assembly on the right side. Mounting screws on the top and bottom of engine assembly. Then remove light engine assembly completely from the TV. Fan#2 is the lamp cooling fan and is located beside the lamp assembly.

It is not too complicated if you draw a picture of where all the plugs are removed from. If one plug is not put back correctly, unit will not work. Usually a tight fight sliding out the engine. Plastic cable tie-down between the 2 assemblies can be cut and discarded, this makes re-installing light engine considerably easier.

Cheat the cabinet safety switch with tape or stretch connecting wire across it to hold it in "on" position for test after reassembly.

Service cost may be $150-$200 if you don't do it yourself. We do it in most Canada cities.

Signs that the bulb in a dlp is going out


A DLP Lamp will fail in two ways. 1.The glass tube housing the filament will shatter and the TV will not turn on. 2. The lamp has many hours of use on it and will gradually grow dimmer. At no time will the lamp cause any picture defect. Check your Cable or Sat box for the correct aspect ratio as well as the TV aspect ratio. Chances are the aspect ratio in either system is set incorrectly. If the gray borders are uniform then the aspect ratio is not set properly. If this occurs on certain channels but not others then the particular channel is broadcasting in the 4:3 aspect ratio and there is nothing wrong with your set.

Screen Resolution Problems with Samsung 50" DLP


Hi there,

You may have already done this, but check to see if you can change the screen size in the set-top-box settings and set this to widescreen 16:9 to match the tv. You may also have 14:9 as an option too. Also, check your video output settings, this can be changed between RGB, Composite, PAL or NTSC.

Let me know if that does or doesn't solve the problem

Shadow top to bottom of screen on left side about 2" wide...


This can be the sync wheel assy, failure in the drive circuit for the display chip, or an illumination fault. You will have to give the set out for service.
