Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

5 day old Samsung Plasma 50 inch, 720p. has a slight hint of pink-ish vertical 2 inch wide band on far left of screen. Only shows sometimes, also a dark grey wide band vertical in center screen shows up during blank segments of commercial scene changes. Is there a reason to worry about it, for a prompt return/exchange? Or is this nothing?

    Thank you; I wonder what it means?


    My worry is that the exchange will be that way too.  They cost so much I just want it to be worth it.  I appreciate your input Jaime.

I would suggest to exchange if you've noticed those lines. Do not wait for too long.
Good Luck

Dark band on left side, Samsung HL-R5668W


the reflecting mirror is likely loose and falling down inside the light reflecting tube. you should have seen the band getting darker and larger,
the small mirror is in front of the lamp and bends the light,
remove the lamp and look down the tube (light path)

Dlp problem


The unit has a defective light tunnel contained within the light engine. This part is not easily replaced and you will a qualified tech to replace it. Many service centers condemn the light engine at a much hight cost. Do not buy or let someone tell you the light engine must be replaced. This repair requires only the light tunnel.

DLP TV: Left half normal, vertical 6" band center is gray, right half almost black. What's wrong?


No. The optical engine is OK. You need an adjustment in the light tunel. Call a tech to do it.
