Picture disapears after few minutes


I think the electronics inside it have failed. My guess is that because its the picture only, it will fail in the same way if you play dvd into it for the same amount of time. The failure happens after it has warmed up, if you take it out into the cold you may get 1 minute more before it fails.
It needs replacing, its not cost effective to repair something like this, the failed parts may have partially damaged other parts in the unit so they could fail after a repair.

Own 2005 27.5' Wildwood Trailer with a Dometic a/c ducted unit. Last few times out it freezes up initially first few times (pocked circuit breaker once then I turned it off after few minutes second time)....


Don't block off any ceiling ducts and see what happens. If you've closed off any forced air ducts, the unit will freeze up, if too many are closed off. Also, if you shut unit off (compressor) give it 5 or 10 minutes before you turn it back on.

Tv stays on standby when switched on, then switches itself off after a minute or 2. Then may show a picture after several attempts to turn on, but will turn off again after a few minutes. It does...


I would suspect this has issues with the power supply, I would put it down to faulty capacitors, take the back off and look on the power supply for domed shaped capacitors, they may also leak a brown liquid like substance.
Replace these and all should be ok if it is capacitor related.

To fix the freezing problem, all you have to do is change the file names to basic numbers. If you have long file names, it causes the pictures to freeze up. Change the names, and the problem stops!

Scattered black lines appear then screen gos black, but still have good volume


Hello 4fiddy,

You have actually diagnosed your own problem, Let me explain; the line "I can slap the left side of the tv and picture will almost always come back on" This indicate some form of poor connection (cold solder joint). If you have a soldering iron, solder (circuit type not pipe type), and a multimeter. Use the soldering iron and solder to redo the cold solder joints , and then test it (the connection) with the multimeter.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Samsung HLR6167 - picture freezes


This is very common in Samsung DLPs. The DMD board is going bad. You will need to replace it.
