Question about Samsung HLP5685W 56" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Was wondering if anybody can help me out here. I have had this tv for a little over 3 years without any problems. Two days ago, a dark but transparent band has appeared on the lower left side of the screen only. It tapers to very thin at the left middle of the screen, but it extends about 1 inch when measured from the bottom. You can see the picture through the line, but the color looks very funny at the transition point. Any ideas?? Thank you VERY much in advance. Ecoustics.com has a thread on the issue and says it is a defective mirror box. Samsung says it has not been an issue but dozens of others were able to get Samsung to fix out of warranty. HELP!
got mine working better unplugged the sound and wiggled the plastic coated wire above the large fan works but freezes maybe once in a day some days never have the sound running through the receiver (surround) I shut it off and it comes back on when it does freeze figure loose connection

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.

all 3 lights blinking means lamp has a fault the service manual says replace the lamp. If you need the service training manual for that model let me know and I will post the link as the training manual has excellent trouble shooting breakdowns for that model DLP

You have 2 distinct problems that should be addressed separately. Please repost the Samsung problem. I will address the Sony problem here.
If the "shadow" makes the picture seem somewhat of a 3D one, the problem is with the convergence circuit. This could be as simple as bad connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder and would like to attempt the repair, update this and I'll provide more details and instructions.
