Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

My Samsung hln-5065w problem

Hello, when my TV has a very dark screen, maybe a night background or even when it is turned off, there are 5 or 6 light shadows on the screen and they all seem to have a simuliar shape. They are vertical and are tapered at the top and the bottom and are the widest at the middle. One is about 12" long and maybe 4" wide, the others are smaller 6"-8" long and maybe 3" wide. The largest one is in the middle of the TV from side to side and towards the upper part of the screen. The smaller ones are on both sides of the middle one.

I purchased the TV at Best buy with an extended warranty and they are replacing the bulb due to taking a long time for the picture to come on but the repair center and the extended warranty company is claiming that "we spilled some liquid on the inside of the screen" and thats not covered. We have no kids at home and there has not been liquid spilled on it.

Any ideas as to what this problem would be and why it would happen? Thanks
Ron C in Gilbert Az.

It looks like the service centre guys are trying to get more money out your pocket.
It could be that they under estimated the cost of the repair and base on that they sent the quote to the people that pay for extended warranty repairs and now they are finding out that is costing them more money for the repair. The lamp was not causing that those lines apprearing on the TV, so it did not need to be replaced.
Hope this helps.

The fan on the back of our Samsung 5065w HLN television is getting very loud

This is most likely due to the tv being worked in or getting a bit old causing the parts to work harder which produces more heat causing the fan to work harder to keep the tv cool. There really isn't much you can do but by a new tv.

I have a Samsung DLP HLN 5065W and recently the TV started to get Horizontal Lines in it with a 2 inch black horizontal line across the TV and the bottom half you could see the picture and the top half...

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as

Hello, why does my plasma tv have thousands of red and green flashing dots all over the dark parts of screen after it has been on for roughly half an hour? if i turn tv off for a while then turn back on...

I had a similar problem but mine was just red specks that showed up in dark scenes. I opened up my plasma and found the adjustment pots that are labeled Vsc, Vy. I then marked the factory default with a sharpie first. Then I lowered the Vy a little and my red specks disappeared. Now my tv looks awsome again like it was new.

My Samsung HLN5065W started to freeze to a black and white

I have a problem with my HLN 5065W Samsung DLP that 3 other folks have and no solution. After the set is on from 5 minutes to 6 hours, the screen will freeze in black and white, I can turn it off for 5 minutes and it will display a good picture again. Sometimes the screen will just go dark blue, TV has to be cycled on/off to get the display back. This problem is getting worse, started as once a month, now 3-5 times a day. I have a tech background and can read a schematic, HELP.

Self focus not working on samsung 5065w 50 inch asking to check factory data

As ima_rm2000 noted, the HLN is manual focus.  There is a focus ring at the base of the lens assembly.  Here is PDF of the focus assembly.  You have to remove the back of the set to access this, and tape/tie the lamp door switch closed so the TV will power up so you can focus it.
