Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:

  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
    Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal.
    For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away.
    If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and .
    If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,
Dahaka

We have a model HL R4667W--Our picture just went


Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

Black pixels in shading and back ground turning red


This is not a "rear projection" plasma TV for whiuch you offered solutions, It is the LCD Flat panel the Liquid Crystal Display a 40" Samsung. I do not think this problem is a dead pixel as that woulde be "black" Reading on the web I found only one post that appeared to be the same or similar and the person said somehing about "switching the red wire" Maybe it is a "stuck" pixel -- sticks on red once in a while. Like previously after the first time it occured it has not come back in three days now. Samsungs repair comes today i will cross my fingers.

My Samsung HLN5065W started to freeze to a black and white


I have a problem with my HLN 5065W Samsung DLP that 3 other folks have and no solution. After the set is on from 5 minutes to 6 hours, the screen will freeze in black and white, I can turn it off for 5 minutes and it will display a good picture again. Sometimes the screen will just go dark blue, TV has to be cycled on/off to get the display back. This problem is getting worse, started as once a month, now 3-5 times a day. I have a tech background and can read a schematic, HELP.
