Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Thin horizontal black lines

A few days ago when I turned my tv on in the morning, the picture quality had noticably reduced, and there are now thin black lines spaced about 3" apart running horizontally accross the screen. Also, the approximate 4" space on either side of the screen (occupying the difference between 16:9 and 4:3) is of exceptional poor quality. The problem is the same whether I'm watching hd cable tv or an hd dvd, so I'm assuming the problem is with the tv rather than cable box or dvd. I'm getting no errors or warnings from the tv.

    I've searched online for a service manual, but haven't had any luck finding it. I've done the '1-8-2-Power' scenario, but don't know what to do from there....

If it is tv a convergence problem, you should perform the convergence setting procedure illustrated in service manual, if this does not work the convergence board is faulty. To test if it is tv you can use a conventional aerial or a different box

If it is not tv then it can be a cable problem, or a faulty receiver box

It looks like either failing convergence IC chips or a couple busted capacitors around them. This will need to be given for servicing.
You could try a hard reset first though: Unplug the TV from the power socket, remove all cabling, wait 5 minutes and replug to wall socket and redo cabling.

However, I think that you could have either convergence problems or a failing power board, for which you will need to get the set serviced.

Hope that helps!

    Ok..here's how to reset your Samsung DLP TV’s lamp hour meter or hour counter. Resetting the counter is a very simple procedure.


    1. Begin with the TV powered off.

    2. Point your remote towards your TV.

    3. Press:

    4. Mute + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.

    5. Your TV set should now say “Loading Factory”.

    6. Browse down to “Option” then press Enter (or the right cursor button).






    NOTE: The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively
    and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after
    using this combination, you can subsitute MENU instead of MUTE. This
    seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as
    the ENTER button, so try it if you’re having difficulty with the ENTER
    button.

    To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off
    your TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterwards!).


    However, i dont think that will resolve the issue. If you heard a kind of intermittent sound coming from the TV, it could be an indicator that the color wheel needs replacement as well. this could be another cause for the issue.

    All in all, I think it would be in your best interest to call in a service guys, as this is an internal problem, which will entail opening up the TV..

Sounds like the picture tubes are failing,common on sony. do you notice any thin horizontal lines? You mite get lucky and be able to adjust the voltages. Remove back cover and look inside to see which tubes are lighting up.The front panel below the screen will come off and behind it is a small access cover.remove it. there you will find the voltage controls (its a plastic square with 6 knobs). 2 knobs for each tube, 1 is focus the other is the voltage labeled "screen". they are marked so look closely. Green is always in the middle but sometimes they flip the controls for red and blue so pay attention to which you are controlling .slowly adjust screen voltages to see if you can get it to stay on. If you over do it those thin horizontal lines will pop up and the tv will shut off again. If you already have lines back off the voltage by turning knob to the left slowly until they diappear. If that seems to fix it but the problem but it comes back later, then the tubes are shot. good luck!

Many thin black horizontal lines on my Hitachi Ultravision 50" TV


Good Day, LDS also;
You may have a poor seated cable connector. Unplug TV from A/C, remove back look for a large black connector. It connects between the Main Digital Module and the Drive PWB. Re-insert both ends several times to make better contact, use contact cleaner if have but not always needed. Good Luck, big IRISH.

JVC Interiart 32" Digital TV. No longer turns on. Has a thin horizontal line across screen when TV is on. No picture.


The thin line indicates that there is no vertical. This is usually controlled by a single IC (vertical IC). Look for a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with 9-14 pins. It may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the IC with a new one.
Keep us posted.

53HX71 Replaced STK392-110 about 7 months ago worked well..now convergence failed again


Thermal compound should be used SPARINGLY for maximum effect. There should be enough to create a thin film over the entire mating surface. Too much compound reduces the heat transfer from component to heat sink. I buy parts from www.mainelectronics.com They are reputable and I can drop by on my way to work :-)
