Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Samsung HLN467WX DLP 46" TV. It had the Light Engine assy replaced in March 05 through warranty, but now it has stopped working. When you turn it on, the picture is fine for about 2-3 minutes then the picture becomes bright and fuzzy before it goes black. The sound continues for a few seconds longer and then also turns off. The fans in the back continue but doesn't timeout and the tv does not respond to remote or power button. I have to unplug the unit to really switch it off. If I try to switch it on immediately afterwards, I get no picture or sound. If I wait a while (about 5 mins) and turn back on, I will get the picture for 2-3 minutes again. Could it be 1) Lamp and/or ballast - (the picture does seem a little dim) and the service menu said th lamp had over 10,000 hours ... not sure if that is really correct 2) Color Wheel - there is a little high pitch noise coming from the color wheel but otherwise looks fine 3) Digital Board - from other posts were talking about problems with HLN models Samsung ECR just said it was out of warranty and wont do anything else to help Any ideas would be appreciated?

If all connections have been checked and the lamp is confirmed working, then I'd agree with the tech. Sorry for the bad news, especially since I know it's not a cheap repair :(

TV has little stars, and cuts off automatically

Go to the Samsung website, find your model under the search function, and click on one of the returned links. Once there, you should see a link that says "Featured Accessories". Click on that and you will go to the Authorized Samsung parts site, where you can find the EXACT cost of the parts needed. Hope this helps. Mine went out, and it was only $65.

Do Not Repair. Cut your loses. Always buy an extended warranty on any new electronic gadget, especially a TV. It will pay for itself.
