Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Green TV with lines through it

This morning my TV was working fine, but when I came home this afternoon to turn it on the screen showed green with lines running through it. The sound was running fine and you could vaguely see the TV show in the background. The other TV upstairs worked fine, so I am guessing the problem is with the TV.

    I have this problem too. In the past it has simply gone away after a day or two, but I don't know how to specifically resolve this issue.

    Hi there,

    I have a Samsung dlp, a few years old. Model # is HLR5067W.
    Every time that we turn on the tv, it has the green lines and fuzz through the screen, but you can still see the picture through it. If we keep it on for a minute, and then unplug/replug it in, it works fine. Today, though, it was fine for a minute, and then turned off and flashed the 3 lights in the front.

    Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not this is a lamp, ballast, or other, more severe problem? I don't want to waste the money on a lamp if the tv is shot.

    My Samsung DLP has this problem as well as the two other samsung DLP's my relatives have. All three are different model units. This looks to be a major design flaw of the samsung DLPs and I am amazed that Samsung is willing to lose customers over this by not recalling what ever part is causing this problem.

Blue,red,green lines on top of screen for couple months. Now tv wont work.

The foldover is because of a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. Given the "new" sympotom of a dead set, I would suspect that the vertical IC has failed. This should be a relatively simple repair for a TV shop. If you wish to attempt a repair of this yourself, update this and confirm your model number and I'll post more details and instructions.

Black screen with green smiley face

If your tv has a picture tube,your problem is in it. If you have only one line now,the vertical circuit is not working. You could have jarred something loose around the picture tube.Maybe a yoke lead ???
