Turns out it may be a problem with the Digital board, the A/V Board or the DMD board. Cost for repair (depending on which board it is) will run $400 - $1,000 or more.
or

Since this is a DLP set there are multiple components that could be causing the problem, the hard part is determining which one.

My guess would be the lamp is beginning to die, which is normal, it is a light bulb after all. There is a guide here on changing the bulb: http://fixyourdlp.com/blog/2008/03/05/samsung-hln617w-lamp-replacement/
If you Google "HLN617W bulb" you will find multiple sources for purchasing a replacement lamp.

If it's not the lamp it could be something like the colour wheel motor, or the imaging board. But I would start with the bulb as other parts could be quite expensive.

Hello mkarol001 !!


It might be something as simple as a loose scart connector on the TV, u have to wobble it around a bit or re-position the scart lead to sort it.

My samsung refrigerator goes off everytime the electricity flickers, even for a flash or less than a second. It goes off and it does not comebacks on for as much as 24 hrs. Sansumg's technitions says...


The fridge can cut off if there is a power flickering or variation as the relay will be energised to trip off. Once the fridge is off the self timer - 5 minutes- will be active to allow the gas/oil to come back to the compressor as the flickering would have produced an irregular pumping.
After about 5 minutes the processor will energise the relay to contact and start.
Now the main issue is the voltage in your household. if the voltage is low then the fridge will not start again as it will click and shut off. So make sure that there is sufficient voltage in the mains supply. Also the plug point where the fridge is connected must deliver good voltage/current as the wiring must be good to carry the load . If not the fridge will trip off whenever there is a power flicker.
Finall if the power is good then the fridge mut be checked as it cannot be off for 24 hours. register you complaint for warranty service.
If power is irregular use an auto- voltage stabiliser .

Flickering picture when setting resolution to 1080P vs 1080I


Hello,

This simply means that your TV isn't capable of handling a 1080 progressive input. This is why it is flickering. Change it back to 1080i(interlaced) and the only time you should ever see flicker is in a still menu. But even then it should be barely noticeable.

If your TV does support 1080progressive then you may want to change the scan frequency of the Yamaha receiver. Common ones are 24 frames/sec or 50/60 Hz. The amplifier should have an auto setting which will detect what the TV can display. The nice thing about HDMI is all that information is transmitted through the cable.

A version 2 or highspeed cable won't change the display at all.
