Question about Samsung HL-R5078W 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Failure to start, period.

Im no professional about T.V.'s period. but i own the Samsung HLR5078WX/XAA, and i watched a movie one night and fell asleep to it.
the next morning the tv was still on so i turned it off. The next time i proceeded to turn it on, It started like normal, made the beeping noise when the tv is initialized like it usually does(must be a samsung thing) and then just cuts out. and tries to (boot up) per say again. each cycle lasting about 3-5 seconds, the first cycle being the longest. and during this time i hear a louder than usual mid-high level whining sound that sounds like a fan but isnt. the sound winds up. , and stops as the tv ends the short cycle.
after about 6-8 cycles it finally turns off, and on the front, the lap(green), timer(green, and stadyby/heat(red) lights blink on and off.

    is the wheel replaceable and where would i find one? i took the lamp out and it looks fine. i see the fan that cools the lamp. and the sound seems like its coming from behind the fan and i have no clue how to get behind that.

The whining you hear is most likely the color wheel

Samsung hlr5078wx DLP tv. rumbling noise and shaky picture


This is a color wheel problem.
I would recommend to use professional help because you can make more damage to the optical engine. Not to mention index delay have to be re-adjusted in special service menu after repair is complete.

TV Screen 'freezing' while watching.


Most likely the DMD board is at fault. If the DMD board is failing it will hold the data lines in the set down which will cause it to stay on until you unplug it. The part number for the DMD board is BP96-00249A but I suggest you have a technician verify the issue and replace the board as it requires mechanical alignment after wards. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thank you.

Could be h.v. splitter.pull the lead coming from the flyback that enters into the h.v.splittter. Put lead in a quart jar and turn the set on and see if you hear a hissing sound, if you don't see a blue arch also. If set stays on then h.v.splitter is bad.

Replacement color wheel for samsung 50'


I am having the exact same issue with the exact same TV. They no longer make that color wheel, so I am looking for a replacement part as well.

I am looking at the 01103A as well from here:
http://www.partstore.com/Part/Samsung/Samsung/BP9601103A/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Samsung&ModelBrandName=Samsung&ModelNumber=HLR5078W

I think I might just order it, and if it doesn't work just return it.

usually when that symbol comes up it means your lamp is defective so I would replace the lamp because if you had the set for that long and not replaced the lamp chances are thats your problem and you may be able to get a user manual for your tv by going to this sight
