Most likely your problem is on the DMD Assy Board P/N BP96-00249A . More presicely there is a few bad electronic components on that board that are bad. That board can be repaired by replacing the bad components (and the other few compoonents that are probly going bad and will soon cause your tv to lockup and lose remote and button functions when it fails so you will need to unplug it to get it on again).
Or the DMD board can be replaced .But it is not a cheap board.
For removal and Installation of the DMD board I would reccomend a tv service person because it is in the heart of the television and there are some adjustements to be made when the new board is installed.
To get the new board you could probably find it by just gooogling the part number.
Component level repair would require some experience in desoldering and soldering SMT,SMD , and or surface mount components.The actual components are about $15.00 total so just repairing your board should cost about $125.00 by a qualified servicer (if you were to remove and install it yourself). This DMD board is used in many models and can a few common problems.
HLM437W HLM4365W HLM5065W HLM507W HLM617W HLN437W HLN4365W HLN467W HLN507W HLN50665W HLN567W HLN617W ( L2 and L5 chassis )
SYMPTOMS:
-Intermittant picture freezing with a negative looking B/W frozen picture.
-Intermittant loss of pic with/without shutdown,abnormal color wheel noise if attempted to start after shutdown.
-lockup of tv control functions . Remote and front keypad do nothing , TV must be unplugged to reset .
-horizantal tearing, distortion , flippnig , solarization , red picture, leading to blank screen and lockup.(tv menu would be affected by all picture defects).
Hope this helps someone..

    Can this board also cause the tv to not turn on at all? my symptoms are:

    I have an HLN617W and the tv just went off all of the sudden, when you try to turn on, the green light for lamp clicks on, then a click and its off and the tv never turns on. I tried the lamp reset, but the tv does not turn on. The fuse is good, up in arms, hands clinched over my face, tried a new ballast, had a tv tech come by and do some testing, he states the dmd board is shorted out and needs to be replaced?

I am having the same problem with the black and white image freezing and then the groaning buzzsaw noise, even think I smelled something from the t.v., though it was the color wheel, and now am reading it's not...

A few questions, first, since this is now happening more frequently, should I NOT use the t.v. until the problem is solved??? Seems o.k., after I turn the t.v. off and then back on.

Second, how does one find a reasonably competent technician to contact? Yellow Pages or...? I'm in Westchester County, New York.

Is replacing the mother board a simple thing to do? If it's only $125 and I can do it myself, who needs a technician?

Black and white screen...


The color wheel can cause a black and white picture but not the jumpy or negative look.
Those symptoms are usually caused by the DMD assy which drives the color wheel and is somewhat expensive, most of the time you can purchase the whole Light Engine which includes the DMD assy for the same price.
