Question about Samsung HLN4365W 43" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
First of all, thanks everyone for the help and assistance offered on this site. It is really a great help. Issue with TV: Will turn on and the picture will come on. During the short time it will stay on the picture is great and bright with excellent color. After about 1-2 minutes it will skew as freeze as if you had taken a picture of an old black and white slide while it was being pulled out of a projector. From what I have read it sounds like this may be the color wheel stopping operation. When this happens it will stay like this with sound for some time and then will finally just shut off. I have not timed how long it will take to shut itself off, but my REAL worry is that once it has failed in this fashion, there is no longer any control from the control panel or via the remote. You have to actually power down the TV to get it to turn off and reset. Once this has been done, control is back to the buttons and remote until it freezes again. Is this also a symptom of the picture wheel failing?
Thanks in advance for any help.
Hi...what you are seeing is the DMD board (digital Mirror display board) going bad. And if you leave it turned on like that it will damage the DMD mirror and freeze that picture into the mirror. It will look as if someone etched it into the mirror. DMD boards can be repaired and some cannot be repaired. The DMD board can be replaced. The DMD mirror can also be replaced too.
