Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

T.v has a dark area on the lower part of screen

When I switch on my t.v..the image covers small part of the upper part of the t.v. after a while..the images start appearing on the lower part. it only goes upto a few centimetres from the lower part of the screen and stops there.There is a dark layer on the lower part of the screen running from left to right.i do not see all the images. Before the problem occured..there was a power blackout.the power capacitor and the posistor went.they were both replaced and this problem has remained since then.

I just replaced bulb with new and after a day there is a dark spot on the screen

I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.

I understand electrical devices.
It is unclear how many screws are on the switch you are testing.

If your switch does not show ohms when the switch is in one position, then it sounds like the switch is bad. But you can read information below for more information about your testing.
You can also add a comment and continue the discussion.

Let me provide more information about switches because you seem interested in electricity and the information may help us understand where the other is coming from in case you add a comment needing more help:
2 screws on switch: (excluding ground screw)
An ordinary single-pole switch usually has 2 brass colored screws.
These screws only read ohms or continuity when switch is in one position.
When the switch is in the other position, there are no ohms that pass through the switch.

3 screws on switch: (excluding ground)
A 3-way switch has 3 screws. There are 2 brass-colored screws and one dark-colored screw.
Put ohm tester on dark screw and continuity will show between the dark screw and one of the brass screws.
Flip the switch and ohms will test between dark colored screw and the other brass screw.

4 screws on switch. (excluding ground)
There are 2 screws on each side of switch.
This type of switch might be a special purpose double-pole switch.
Or it might be the more common 4-way switch.
Add a comment if you have a switch with 4 screws.

Below is a typical 3-way switch application showing the dark-colored screws:

Here is a typical 4-way switch circuit:
Notice the switch in middle has 4 screws:

Faint lines show up when i get dark screens in movies

First check what color of faint lines comes then reduce Screen Volts in TV of that CRT (tube)
Take off lower front cover, speaker grille of TV, there you will see focus control block that has 6 control knobs, upper 3 knobs are focus adjustment of red-green-blue CRTs and lower 3 knobs are screen volt controls for red-green-blue CRTs. Turn screen volt control knob CCW to reduce screen volts of desired CRT.
Put TV on any free AV input so screen will be dark enough to adjust screen volts.

Small dark area in corner of screen on Samsung HLP5085W

What you have is a lens that has been jarred loose or a plastic support melted. That's what it sounds like anyway. you may have a recall on this problem if it is common for your model. Not likely something you can fix yourself. if you are Gadget inclined you maybe able to though. check recalls first.


First I would give the optical area a good cleaning --- mirrors, lens, etc.. If this device has the 'slide' adjust for the image quality, the slide may have come out of the holder. Try seeming if the slide is seated properly. If this is the 'thumb / circle ' adjust, the POT ( value adjust on the board) may need to be reset. There is always the chance the the board is cracked or has a cold solider joint (pins) for the adjuster. IF you are inclined, that the cover off and check for crack, if no crack heat and re-solider the pins for the adjust switch.
