Question about Samsung HLN467W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung DLP HLN5065 intermittent shut off and color scrambled display

This problem started 4 days ago when the displayed image scrambled the colors on all channels.  My wife unplugged the unit until I returned.  I powered it up and it came on for about 2 minutes, then scrambled.  I unplugged as couldn't power off normally.  Plugged back in after a minute or so.  Picture came up ~30 secs later and stayed on for a minute then the TV shut itself off.  30 seconds later it seemed to try and turn itself back on but failed.  This cycled for a few minutes so I unplugged as again couldn't power off normally or via the side power button.  I plugged in and the preceeding repeated.  I did this a few times and finally the TV came on and worked normally.  Next day this basically repeated.  I'm on Comcast cable and running DVI if that matters.  I tried antenna input and same problem.  Much appreciate any help.  Thanks in advance!

    I have the same problem. The TV will be working fine then the picture will suddenly freeze in black and white pixels for a split second then disappear all together. After shutting it off for a couple of minutes it will work fine again for anywhere between 30 seconds and an hour. I noticed one suggestion said the problem was a bad light engine assembly. Are there any other suggestions on how to fix that?

    I've had my samsung collecting dust for over 2 years because i got tired of trying to fix this same problem. I paid to get the color wheel and lamp changed but after a long week of normal service and somewhat loud noice the TV whent bad agin. The great image turned like a color negative and have not bother with it again. Is there any econimical hope for this baby or sould I just trash it.

Can we go further into light engine?. . .Is is shabby connectors, heat sinks, cold solder, caps, has anyone actually repaired the light engine? This is obviously a very common problem. . .I've replaced the lamp, balast, color wheel and bypassed the switch. . .mine still does this for 5-10 minutes, then will work fine forever as long as you leave it on. . .

I have a 50 inch DLP samsung and it wont power on after making a lot of noise (I replaced the lamp) worked fine for a few days now the red light and the right side green light is blinking. any sugge

The answers above are correct. It's either the lamp or the color wheel. Testing the lamp is pretty straight forward. Use an Ohm meter to see if the it's filament has continuity. It's unlikely that a good color wheel would fail immediately after changing the lamp. Look to see if some wiring is out of place and rubbing the wheel causing the noise you described. A jammed but otherwise good color wheel would cause the TV to shut down and display an error code.

Display problem with my Samsung HLP5085W DLP TV

What you are describing sounds like a tuner issue. Samsung had a run of bad tuners, and was recalled. If your watching a chennel and the image tears, this is the sign of the bad tuner. It is possible that the wobulation circuit is unstable. First units we bothered by subwoofers thumping the TV. Not much help other than that, good luck

It is unlikely that you can do anything yourself.
It sounds to me that there is a power supply problem that has steadily gotten worse and that cannot be confirmed remotely, it must be done on site by an equipped professional.
