Question about Samsung HL-P5063W 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung HLR5067 flashing green

The other night there was a thunderstorm, so I unplugged the TV. After I plugged it back in and turned it on, the screen was predominantly green and constantly flashing. There are also 5 vertical stripes running down the screen that are purple and green. It looks this way on all regular channels and on the DVD player. The HD channels have little green or purple squares flashing all across the screen, but the picture is otherwise normal. The menu and the TV Guide screens are not affected. Also, the TV will periodically freeze up and shut itself off and then turn back on again. I've tried unplugging it again, leaving it off for awhile, leaving it on for awhile, but nothing has made any impact. Any ideas?

    We've also discovered that if you do PIP, the channel on the right looks perfectly normal, but the left screen still has the original problem.

    Same issue with my TV happens with intermitent power failures, this comes on after i turn on the TV. It goes away after I unplug and reinsert the power plug a couple of times.

If this doesn't fix your problem, it may be the lamp. I experienced the same sequence minus thunderstorm, but it got to where it went from green verticals to just cycling on and of 5-6 times. New lamp did the trick.

Thank you!!!! Our power was off due to new transformers being installed in the area and we had no clue how to fix this. I called around and no one seemed to know the answer (not even Samsung, who only wanted to tell me my TWO year old tv was out of warranty),so I tried this and it worked perfectly!!! You saved me a bundle! Thanks!

Some of these sets if you unplug them---The green power light will blink for about 70 seconds before it stops--this is normal as the receiver unit in this set is booting up. Wait for the light to stop blinking and then the set should turn on. Some of these sets develop a problem where the light never stops blinking--usually the receiver is now bad--very expensive to get fixed.

Samsung 56 HLR566 Vertical Green Lines


I suggest unplugging your entire system for one minute to try a reset again. Sometimes a system reset doesn't take the first time. If this does no good you probably have damage to your digital board or dmd board. I have a smaller version of the same set at home and have done samsung's warranty service for several years. They deliver a great picture but do need regular maintenance and or repairs. The upside of all this is if you have homeowners insurance it may be covered, depending on your deductable amount. However, a dmd board can cost 500.00 so you may have to go that route. Hope this helps, Russmann.

Green power light will not stop flashing and tv will not turn on or off


You need to replace the 1000uf capacitors on the DM board thats the classic symptom of the DM caps being bad the light continues to blink repeatedly. If you need more info on the repair let me know.

Power light flashing/ no picture


I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
