Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
46" Samsung DLP, 2 years old. The symptoms vary from:
Color is all distorted.
Can't turn TV off, need to unplug it.
5 evenly spaced wide vertical bars. Each bar is made up of 7 narrower
Model # HLR4667WAX/XAA
This is a possible fault in the power supply, and can be a problem with some decoupler caps on some of the boards. The vertical bars and unstability are usually attributed to having high frequency noise and or clocking pulses crosstalking on to the power distribution lines that run through the boards. This can be switching power supply noise, or cross-talk from clocking pulses.
Another thing that can cause your described fault is unstable clocking between the devices that are reading and writing to the data busses. There are a number of data busses running through the set for the boards to be able to communicate with each other.
The tech will use the process of board swapping to service the set, and then do the adjustments as necessary to make sure the new boards match up.
Yes... DLP sets are fairly expensive to service!
This is my personal opinion. If the set is out of warranty, I would change for a Plasma or LCD set. If you compare the performance of these to ther DLP, the difference is very big. From what I am seeing from a service point of view, the DLP's are lower in reliability.
