Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

We have a Samsung DLP about 5 years old. We noticed that the fan or some sort of hummning sound was coming from the back louder than normal while TV is on. Then suddenly the picture would start to freeze up and then turn to black altogether and then the picture would come back after several seconds but then freeze and go black again. For awhile we would just unplug the TV from the back of TV (reboot) and it would go back to normal. But then one day it decided not to anymore...it just went black and then eventually shut itself off. Now when we plug it in and turn it on, we can hear the fan going in the back and there is a barely noticeable change to the screen, but never any picture (color), no snow, nothing! Then after a few minutes of this, it shuts itself off. Is this a repairable problem, if so, is it expensive? Is it worth fixing? Thanks!

    Thank you! I called a TV tech and he said he would save me $89 (his charge for house call to diagnose the problem) and tell me that the cost to fix what is wrong with it is not worth it and that we are better off buying a new TV. He said its processor board and that its really expensive to fix it. He said that the fact that the picture will freeze and then go black and then turn back on wasn't an issue with the actual picture itself but that it was the board that must have been damaged. The TV did have a bad fall once :( Do you think his over the phone diagnosis is correct? Should we just say screw it and buy a new TV?

My Samsung 50" DLP HDTV keeps humming when the DLP lamp comes on.


Hi, you have one of two problems, either the color wheel is going or one of the cooling fans are going, the color wheels are a very common problem in samsung dlp`s, sorry I can`t nail it to a specific part but I`d bet it`s the color wheel as they are notorious for failing in samsungs, video-tek
