Question about Projection Televisions

2 Answers

I have a Samsung HLE5688W, a DLP, it 3 years old and now after it is on for a little while half the screen goes black and other side stays the same. I turn it off for a few seconds and it comes back on ok. It then stays this way for a while until it does it again. It is now doing this more often. What is the problem?

I think the most common cause of this problem is a faulty lamp. If you have replaced the lamp, or otherwise have reason to believe that it is not the lamp, it may be the ballast (the thing that starts up the lamp). You can purchase a ballast at a good price at partstore.com. (approx $140 vs. $180 at samsungparts.com)

Hope that helps.......

Looks like the convergence has gone, one of the ICs has probably blown.

    Sorry, I didn't see it was a DLP, on a DLP it is more likely to be a problem with the light engine. It can be the light engine or the digital board control.
    All this parts must be tested by an experienced technician, the whole job is no less than $200

    check also the color wheel and eventually
    replace it. If it is just the color wheel it goes for about $100.
    You can buy Samsung replacements here.

When i turn on my 50 " dlp it will stay on for about a minute then the screen goes black but the volume stays on. The red light by the power button then comes on. What do I need to do?


brad amie bi,

It certainly sounds like the lamp needs replaced. If your unit is more than 3 years old I would bet on it. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4168009-change_lamp_in_dlp_projection_tv which addresses all the problems of replacement and also where to get a quality lamp at a good price.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Samsung dlp white dot


If the white dot is on every picture and every input and stays there for a sec. after you press the power button to turn off the tv then suspect a stuck mirror in the DMD.

I have a 56" DLP Samsung (HLR5668W) Right side goes solid black


The color wheels will never fix an issue like that. The only things that will cause that issue is a bad DMD board which is part of the light engine or the digital board which is not. Freak Squad need to replace the digital board.

Samsung rear projection tv have vertical black linens up and on tv


you have a bad dmd module and it cost around $750-$800
Happend, because a bad soldering connections in that module. Lines will come on and off. Probably 1 day will stay on. For last 2-3 years im seen that only on hlm and hln series. Probably
happens on other models. but, i never seen that.
Is not that hard to replace that module. You have to remove 2 screws from left side and 1 screw from bottom righ side of module and 4 of them
from around dlp unit unpulg all cables ( i think
3 cables ) that it. Same way install new one in.
but you will need to adjust a module position to get picture to fill whole screen.

Color Wheel problem.. to generate colors on a dlp the light is shine through a motorized wheel. that has different color filters on it. this is a motor and anthing that moves will eventally wear out. i just replaced the color wheel on a samsung today. standard for this to go out in about that time. i believed our shop charged 250 to put a new one in.
