Question about Samsung HL-P5063W 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung DLP vertical black lines

My Samsung DLP has Thin Black Vertical Lines 8 in each row, 9 rows. The tv is 3 years old. No problems until now.

Called Samsung and they said to unplug the tv and leave it off for an hour. Tried that, but it did not work.

Vertical black lines (10), not solid black.

    I have the same issue - but 8 sets of 8 lines. My Samsung DLP is a 46". It's under warranty w/Best Buy, so I'm going to call them. Weird thing though...mine is 3 years old too.

    I also have same problem with 10 sets of 8 vertical lines on a 3 year old HLP5063W.

    I have a HLP5685w that just started doing the exact same thing. Mine is 3 years old as well. I hope it's not the dmd board...

    P.S. Samsung's Customer Service is some of the worst I have experienced.

I tried replacing the bulb on the back but they no longer make the same one so they insisted that the replacement one would work but it did not

I did some reading on this. They said its caused by a faulty DMD board. I understand it's costly... around $700 to replace. Still looking for a cheaper avenue...

    I just ordered a DMD board online for about $50 and replaced it myself. Not really that difficult, just need philips head screwdrivers and some patience...

    Same thing happened to's definitely the DMD board. I found one online for about $50 and replaced it myself. All you need is a phillips screwdriver and some patience...not that difficult to replace.

Samsung rear projection tv have vertical black linens up and on tv

you have a bad dmd module and it cost around $750-$800
Happend, because a bad soldering connections in that module. Lines will come on and off. Probably 1 day will stay on. For last 2-3 years im seen that only on hlm and hln series. Probably
happens on other models. but, i never seen that.
Is not that hard to replace that module. You have to remove 2 screws from left side and 1 screw from bottom righ side of module and 4 of them
from around dlp unit unpulg all cables ( i think
3 cables ) that it. Same way install new one in.
but you will need to adjust a module position to get picture to fill whole screen.
