Question about Samsung HLP5085W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Open Question

The blues on my DLP look green most of the time.

The blues on my Samsung HLP5085W look green most of the time. Sometimes they'll display blue for a few minutes, but then they go back to green. I thought maybe I needed to change the lamp, since it was 5 years old, so I did, but it has not helped. I've read a lot about the color wheel and wonder if this is the problem, but there is no noise associated with the problem. All the other colors appear normal; just the blue is wrong and appears green.

SOURCE: DLP Colors Are Off - Picture Is Mostly Blue and Yellow

Sounds like you've lost your red video signal (chroma) somewhere along the line. This tv has a 3 board video path. Analog main pcb --->Digital main pcb --->DMD pcb. The analog has all your inputs on it, except DVI and RGB which go straight into the digital board. The digital scales (upconverts) the signal to HD (1080 or native) and sends it to the DMD or light engine. See which inputs are distorted. If only DVI is clean then you problem is the analog board. If you menu and everything is distorted then suspect the DMD board. If you run component or DVI through the resolutions (480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i) you can get an idea between the digital board and dmd. The menu is generated on the digital board. Somewhere red is getting lost.

Dlp tv color goes fuzzy and green


Its probably unrelated to lamp, take the lamp out, try it again and look into the lens, if its still very green the projectors electronics are failing. The projector generates pictures as 3 streams of info Red Green and Blue. It looks like the projectors red and blue electronics are failing, but the green is working.

I have a SAMSUM HL-T6187SA DLP LED 1080P. The problems I see are a Green Tint and the RED(s) display as Blue(ish). John


Hi,

It sound likes the problem of your unit is the light engine. This is very common problem on Samsung DLP TV's and tons of complaint regarding on the picture quality. If you search "Samsung DLP law suit" you will find various comment regarding on the issue.

This part is an expensive one and I would advice you to call Samsung service department (1-800-726-7864) to let it diagnose by their Technician and see if they would cover the parts.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Samsung HLP5085W DLP - lamp replaced about 7 months ago. I powered up TV and got strange colors with flickering picture. Turned unit off and triangle symbol appears with lamp showing - needs replacement....


Strange colors and flickering picture symptom shows problem with color wheel and/or dmd board.
Lamp is only light source in dlp tv and it has nothing with colors or picture flicker.
TV goes to protection mode because of some internal problem as mentioned above.
If you wish to repair tv by yourself then you should have service manual copy in hand and that can be downloaded from HERE for small fee.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Color is bad after installing color wheel in samsung dlp tv


Most times color does not to be reset. If you have a very ugly green or blue picture, then you did not pull the jumper on the dm board. This jumper must be removed when a bering type color wheel has be replaced with a new airless bering color wheel.

I have the same problem, the service people indicated this a manufacturer problem, they are not calling it a recall, but requires up graded parts which could take 30 days or more to receive. He said if they do not receive the parts in 30 days they might replace the TV. My TV is a Samsung DLP 61 inch
