Samsung HLN5065W freezes in black / White screen

Have HLN5065W Samsung DLP TV.
It works good for sometime and freeze in black/white image with sound coming properly.
I have to unplug the TV and it takes for a while to see it up with the image.

Initially it was good for a 30 - 40 minutes on Video 2.
Recently I was using my cable TV and I went through the channels which were not transmitted and came back to the channels which are working. During those switching between the channels it is observed that the screen froze with in 5 mins.

Now I have put the TV back in Vidoe 2 mode, but with in 2 mins the TV freezes into Black and white with the sound running in the background.

When I browsed on to the forum, I learnt that it is a DMD problem. (

Can someone guide me in this with the exact solution?
If it is DMD, which model and where to purchase it and how much does it cost?

Thanks a ton in advance.

50" DLP Samsung HDTV

That sounds like one of 2 things:
  1. Color wheel
  2. Light engine
Color wheel because of the losing color, but the light engine because of the picture freeze. It's very difficult to judge since I can't be there to see it. I'm leaning toward the light engine though. The only fix is to replace the DMD board, or entire light engine.

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.

Tv freezes white and black negative image

Yes the digital board is the culprit. I need the complete model number so I can get you the correct part number. On the right hand side of the TV is a sticker with the model/serial and sometimes a version number. Get me all those and I will look up the part number.
