Samsung HLN507W freezes with black and white specks

I have a Samsung HLN507W without problems for 4 years plus. Today it started a black-white freeze pixellation and wont turn off unless I unplug it. What is wrong with it? By the way, color wheel seems ok and is not noisy.

    Frozen Pixellation ocurrs and is all black and white as previous poster described....I thought perhaps it was an isue with my cable provider as it seemed to happen only on certain channels.



    I had a tech come out....did some minor adjustments but really not much use; did tell me that he fixed some interference and just tightened the cable connection (I felt a little stupid for that one). The problem didn't go away but became less frequent. I think something with their signal may initiate the problem. It has been much better and that was 2-3 months ago I had them come out.

I had the same problem. It ended up being the DMD board, which is the mirror engine. cost about $1000 to fix. Better off buying a new tv.

This tv have a colors wheel design in it.The tv make loud grinding motor noises or pictures flashes or freeze and pictures turn in black&white with sound.The tv colors wheel it is dying or worn out already.Don't tries to change the tv colors wheel ur self.If u don't any mechanical skills,because the colors wheel it sit way back of the tv,must take out many mechanical parts before even can come to the tv colors wheel itself to replace it.Best to hire a tv tech. to change the colors wheel,so no problems for tv funstions for later or damages more parts on the tv set,if u install the new colors wheel in the tv wrong way.

Hi, It may not actually need repair. Check on back of television to see if there is a switch saying p/s-I ( short for pan & scan and Interlaced ) the second one being what is used when connecting to non H.D. sources. I hope this helps, good luck Prodzilla

Color wheel is going or gone out. New colorwheels are air bearing and not mechanical.

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.

Picture freezes Black/White


It's most likely the digital board, Samsung p/n# Bp94-00385a but I'd trace test both the digital and analog first before blindly replacing it - too costly to just guess..
