Two inch shadow on tv

I have a 56" samsung dlp tv, when I turn it on tonight it now has a shadow on the right side of the tv, about 2" wide all the way down the side. Called samsung and they told me I needed to have a repair tech come out and look. Any hints as to what may be wrong? The tv is only 1.5 years old.

Change the input to AV1 or AV2 with no signal and see if it's still there, if it is you might have a defective light engine in which a lot of manufacturers will warranty. This can be repaired in the home but some shops preferr to take them in, try for the in home co's first. Just a word to the wise, DLP's do not last as long as you may want.

3 problems 1. TV shuts off and on automatically. 2. 2 inch band on left side of screen 3. No picture at all


The band or shadow on the left side of the screen definitely sounds like a defective light tunnel.As for the intermittent pix and shut down this could be the lamp if you have not already changed it.

My 56 inch Samsung DLP keeps shutting off. I have


Once before I had this same problem and FixYa gave me the solution. When you replace the lamp door, there is a switch inside so be sure the door is put in at an angle so to hold the switch up. It solved my problem after numerous repairmen missed it.

Dark shadow about 4'' at top of screen of 56'' dlp samsung hlr5667


There is a piece connected to the color wheel assembly called a light tunnel. It is between the color wheel and optic assembly. There is 4 mirrors inside. One of them probably got dislodged when the wheel shattered. Sometimes they can be repaired using high temp glue or you may have to replace the tunnel.

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.

Yes, it could. There is a light pipe in the light path that could now be broken from the bumping or it could just be out of line from the bumping. Another problem could be the mirrors in the projection path could just need adjusted by the 3 screws that are beside the mirrors. This may also happen when bumped.
