Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

HL-P5063W Green lines when the tv warms up

Great Forum, I hope these knowledgeable people would suggest some fix for my problem too.

I have this Samsung DLP tv around 2 years old. Recently the tv would display green lines after the set is on for around half an hour. These green lines starts appearing slowly and then about within 10 minutes they are scattered all over the screens. Most of the lines are aound the faces of the people displayed on the screen. if the tv is left off for about 20 minutes these lines will disappear when you turn the tv on but caome back again as the set warms up.

These lines are thin lines and appear to be like dotted lines. I am also attaching picture with the problem. Please help.

    I also see the green lines. The lines always seem to be around pure black or white areas of the picture. For the past month or so they would come and go, but now they are always there. In addition there is a purple hue to the picture. For the past month or so this would only happen when we first turned the tv on for about 5 minutes and then the 'good' picture would kick in. Now, as with the green lines, it is always there. Is this related to the lamp, or the color wheel? I'm not seeing any dimming, just artifacts with the color.

    I have a samsung DLP HL-P with horizontal green lines and purple lines with green outlining the figures on tv. I have called samsung and they advised me to move my speakers away from the tv, but that did not help. They said if moving the speakers did not help than call a repair company. I also pulled out the light vaccumed out the inside best I could, but it still has the lines. I called the repair company and they told me it would cost 200.00 to 600.00 dollars to fix saying the "board" needed to be replaced. Samsung's customer service was terrible leaving me on hold for a total of 60 minutes. If you spend 1700.00 on a tv you would expect it to last more than 3 years. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

    I am also having the same problem with my 50" Samsung DLP. The set it only 5 years old. Please let me know if anyone knows what this problem is caused from.

    Well, I have the same exact problem as ajutomation. Its a different model number and only a couple of years old. I have called a repair man, but as not under warranty, I guess I do not want to be out hundreds of dollars if there is no fix. I did try to problem solve with Samsung but to no avail.

    Would rather choose to buy new I guess.

    I have model HL-R5067W and have the green lines all the time. They just started with no reason but set is 3 years old. Tried talking to samsung that was a joke please there no help what so ever. They have had lots of calls with the same issue and just tell you they can set up a repair center at your cost of course. If you are considering buying samsung buy the warr. you will likely need it. Me i will say away from samsung products all together.

    i have green shadow's around the black area's when watching the picture.. it started last year then went away.. now.. the green shadows are constant.. i have owned it for two years .. .. Still haven't seen a blog or anyone, that know's how to fix other than drop another 2g's on a diffrent brand.. you could always film yourself beating your samsung ln-s2651d with a sledge hammer, and upload it on youtube..

    Same problem with the green lines. Sometimes its green and purple squares. Strangely if I use PIP, the PIP looks fine. Can anybody help?

  • TANYAELISE Nov 06, 2008

    I have the HL-R5667W. Exact same problem....I also have the intermittent shut off Problem. GREAT. Here is what I have found out so far... PIP has a clear picture. HDMI has a clear picture (anything plugged into the HDMI input). HD channels are clear. TV Guide set up has a clear picture. Menu is good. At first, when I would get the green lines, I would do something very bad to the TV. With the TV on and playing, I would turn off my power strip then turn it right back on. The WORST reset you could do for electronics. At that time the TV would play all night no problems. Now it takes anywhere from 5 to 15 times of resetting like this to get it to work. I also noticed that there is a component winding up VERY slowly when I have the green line problem and when it spins up lines.

    Call me if you have resolved this. 443-404-6377. My TV is about to get a free ride to the dump.

    Hate to re-open an old forum but I am having this same issue with green lines but I noticed that it is only in 480(i/p) anything else such as 720p or 1080i everything looks great. If anyone has had this fixed please let me know or even email me at

Mine also has this problem. Whenever my components are plugged in the green lines appear. I changed my setting and the only way the cable box or dvd player will work clearly is when put on GAME.

My Samsung DLP is having the same problem.  Not sure what to do, but I will contact my warranty place for the second time.  Hopefully they'll fix it.  Any other suggestions?

Samsung HL-P5063W makes a whining sound and then goes off

The most common failure in the DLP that makes a whining sound would be the color wheel. They cost about $135 + labor because I wouldn't advise changing it by yourself.

I have a Samsung HL-P5063W. Once it warms up there is a loud buzzing noise coming from insude the rear of the TV. The fan is running all the time. lamp is about a year old.

Your symptoms sounds like the set may have a damaged color wheel.

It is also possible that you have a noisy fan, but they don't get very loud.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
