Samsung DLP Flickering

I have a 50 inch Samsung DLP TV which I purchased 13 months ago. Recently the brightness started to flicker while I was watching cable or playing PS3. It went away for while when I unplugged my tv for a bit but I still see it coming back.I notice it more on solid or bright colors. I had the bulb replaced and some service done last year but this problem is new. Also, after the tv has been turned off for a while I hear a high pitched whine which goes away when I turn the set on. Any ideas? Samsung said I was out of luck with them.

    I have the same problem with my HLT5076 I purchased last July. I originally thought it might be dust collecting near where the lamp reflect light and the flickering occurs because of the fan. I've since removed the lamp and found no dust in that area and I've also cleared any dust via vacuum from where the air circulates from outside the cabinet. This issue occurs intermittently and I've noticed it during sat broadcasts as well as HD gaming. It's just a big enough annoyance that I'm this close to calling a service tech... but I'm cheap :).

If you're certain the lamp is good, it's probably the ballast. The ballast has enough juice to power the lamp, but it's unable to maintain a steady consistent level of power, hence the lamp flickering. Changing the lamp may temporarily resolve it because a new lamp is more easily maintained than an older one, but if the ballast is failing, the problem will recur and probably shorten the life of the lamp. The ballasts cost around $70-80. Replacing it can be done by the electronically adept end user, or you may need a service tech. The problem with a service tech is that some may not acknowledge that the problem is the ballast especially if the intermittent flicker is not happening while he/she is examining it.

I've owned a Vizio VT420M for just over 13 months. About a week ago the tv started flickering when I turn it on. The picture is visable, but the area around the actors is flickering. After about 7 to 10...


The flickering is most likely due to a faulty fluorescent backlight. Once the bulb heats up the flickering usually goes away. Some bulbs are easier to replace than others so I would contact your local TV repair shop.

Samsung HLP5085W DLP - lamp replaced about 7 months ago. I powered up TV and got strange colors with flickering picture. Turned unit off and triangle symbol appears with lamp showing - needs replacement....


Strange colors and flickering picture symptom shows problem with color wheel and/or dmd board.
Lamp is only light source in dlp tv and it has nothing with colors or picture flicker.
TV goes to protection mode because of some internal problem as mentioned above.
If you wish to repair tv by yourself then you should have service manual copy in hand and that can be downloaded from HERE for small fee.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

DLP TV starts to loose picture after 1 - 1/2 hours of use


This tv has a 3 board video path. Analog main pcb --->Digital main pcb --->DMD pcb. see which inputs have the problem to narrow it down. if only some inputs, suspect analog board. if everything flickers(all inputs and menu), suspect the dmd or engine. you can see the lamp shine out the back. if the lamp is flickering, suspect lamp or ballast.

Flickering


I would suggest to call Samsung to get the Plasma repair under manufacturers warranty. The flickering will not go away until the hardware failure is corrected.
Good Luck.
