    This morning my tv (HLR5667WAX/XAA) did the same thing. Screen went black but there is still sound. All the lights on the front of the tv are black as well. Unplugged the set for about 30 minutes, plugged it back in and turned it on. All was good for about an hour and then the screen went black again. Some forums say its the bulb while others say its the DMD board. Is there anyway to actually determine how to troubleshoot this? I need my tv back, my kids are going through withdraws!

Hi my name is Vince and I have a samsung dlp (model hl-r5667 w). Its about 4 years old and i have no warranty for the tv. Recently my lamp went bad so i purchased a new lamp and installed it myself and about 45 minutes later a there was loud pop and the screen wet black and the sound went out as well. Also the tv started making a loud humming noise. I had a tv repair guy come look at the tv and from the second he walked in the door he was on his phone arguing with some one for ten minutes and seem like he did want to work. Well he finally got after the call and told me that the light engine needs to be replaced. Do you think I should get a second opinion or does that sound about right? The only reason I ask is because he did seem like he wanted to work on the tv and had something else going that was more important. Thanks

Hi..if your lamp is on but no picture, then your lamp is good. Your problem is the DMD board (digital mirror display board) is bad. This is very common with Samsung DLP.

In most cases when these fail there will be a blinking light on the front but first thing is to see if when out the lamp is on or not on--should be able to see from rear.

After changing color wheel on my samsung hlr 5067w tv my picture is high with black bar on of heads are cut off.what went wrong? no proble before.

Hi,If you are experimenting vertical lines ,black bars ,color

distortion,pixilation,or white dots on the screen you might be having an

issue with the Dmd chip.This is how the DMD chip works: Basically the dmd chip

is composed of around 2 million pixels that create the image on the

screen.You will need to replace in order to fix your problem.Have a

blessed one!

No picture on my samsung 61" dlp.

The color wheel if bad enough, will cause the lamp not to light. If the lamp is truly bad, you can't usually tell by just looking at it unless of course it is broken.

Hi, tough question, could be lamp, lamp circuit is overheating,t-con module or you have a bad color wheel, the latter usually causes a hi pitched squeal periodically, you have 2 choices, 1. try replacing the lamp 2. call a tech and let them diagnose it, too many possibilities without doing some diagnostics, video-tek
