    Got it. Your reply prompted me to tear apart my TV again and upon doing so I noticed that the color wheel I replaced was not sunk properly into the frame it goes in. I was afraid because the instructions warned me NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN it. So I tightened it up and now she works perfectly. Thanks again for your help SD TECH!

THIS IS JUST A SUGGESTION, IF I am right give me a very helpful vote here and a note, check the ribbon cable----color wheel has two cables--one regular and one orange--look at contacts on orange one--they should face the back of the light engine--it is very possible to put the cable in backwards--common issue.

I have Samsung HLN5065. It used to have a problem of shutting down on its own but now it does not turn on at all either by remote or manual button. I checked power and it is good other appliances are working.

My HLN5065WX will turn on, play for about 1 minute, flash funky colors then go black. Once this happens you can not shut down the TV. You must unplug to turn off.


Bad Color Wheel, its located behind the Lamp Pull Lamp out and use a Flash Light You should be able to see it.

Sounds like the color wheel may have also gone bad. I recently saw a 56" Samsung where the bulb and color wheel went at the same time. The color wheel could produce a crying noise while trying to spin up.

HLN5065W picture turns black and white and shuts down


Sounds like your color wheel may be at fault. Do you ever hear any unusual noises coming from the rear of the TV? Color Wheels usually make a humming sound as they go bad. This is because the tiny bearings in the color wheel motor have begun to misshape from use and heat. This is a known issue in this TV! Expect to spend $300-500 to have this serviced by a service company. If you have the right stuff, you can do it yourself. If you search the web, you'll find a color wheel for this TV for under $100, but installation can be tricky.

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.

Noise from Samsung rear projection DLP HD TV.


this noise is an indication of a bad color wheel. aa dlp uses a mechanical motor to spin a coloered segment disk. this turn the white light of the lamp into your colors of pictures. Now anything that moves will eventally break. the flickering is also an indication of a color wheel going bad. eventally this will cause the set to shut down. Color wheels can be replaced. i dont know your model so i am not sure of the exact replacement procedure. at my shop we charge average 250 for such a repair
