Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I hope someone could help me with this problem:
I purchased a Samsumg DLP 50" TV about 3 years ago, of course i did not get the extended waranty, and the TV started to go bad after the second year.
The first problem that I had was tha i had green horizontal lines with sahdows across the whole screen. After searching on dirferent forums, it seemed that the video card had gone bad, which will cost over $1,000 to repair.
I did not give up, and i noticed that if I used the TV as a PC monitor, the screen will work perfectly. So i purchase a hardware to concet my digital cable to my PC and projected on my TV as a monitor.
At the end, the software was $25.00, a ste of Wireless key board and mouse for $40 and I fixed the problem for a total of $65 I fixed my screen problem and had digital quality TV at no aditional cost. Woks perfet when seein DVS on your PC.
Now after 6 moths i'm starting to have a second problem:
I now have a Black vertical line on my left side of the TV monitor that seems to be getting bigger as days go by, started at about 1" wide and now is abou 3".
Does any one know what could this be?
you can still see a picture behind this black line, but it is very dark.
Is this the end of my TV, should I finally give up my battle and purchase a new one?
From the link http://www.samsungtvshadowclassaction.com/main/home.sfx I followed it's links to http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=758625 and my HLR5667W looks like new again. thanks to all.
