Any one has or had problem like this? any suggestion or solution? Is it repairable by DIY or has to be done by repairman?

I am tired of SAMSUNG DLP TV (had White/Black spot issue before).
Looks like poor quality built.

Anyone has/had this issue? Want to know what to do with this. Thanks.

I've had the static issue occasionally the only way I know how to fix it is to go into the service menu then exit it. Once you do that sound returns to normal. I'm not sure on the cause however as it doesn't bother me that much and only happens rarely.

how do you go in service menu?

Static starts when TV is on for about 1hr or so. I can watch for an 1hr without any static. Again, if it turned off for 10mins, sound will be normal again for an hour. It appears that some heat issue or bad part.

Samsung mentioned that some of their model experience this problem but it is still below "normal" number to make it recall. Not sure what is "normal' means.

Hmm then maybe it isn't the same issue. My static happens right when I turn on the TV. Service menu is mute 182 power with the TV off. Power again when you have entered the service menu. Just are,index that you will need to setup picture and audio again as this resets those settings to factory defaults. Also don't go messing around in there as you can cause major damage to the tV by changing settings if you don't know what you are doing.

My have a HLS5687WX/XAA. The picture is a black screen with fuzzy red and green horizontal lines flashing on it.

Anyone know what this could be???

Hmm..... I had something similar in terms of the symptoms until it finally quit. Turned out to be the Main Board Assembly in my case.

You can check out the saga HERE

Cost a pretty penny to fix but the TV is fine now.

But your problem may be different.

Thanks Muad Dib, I just ordered a new lamp but I guess after I change that I should have a professional come in. I guess it would be cheaper than buying a new TV

Thanks

Spider invaded my Samsung. My wife called me at work, very upset, the tv's broke...my first thought was, time for an upgrade!!!! After she described what was happening, it just sounded to me like something on the optics. She described black squigly lines down the screen. I got home and found this to be the case. I ended up discovering a spider in the projection space. It had gotten on the rear mirror, and left trails of crap down the mirror, which projected them onto the screen. A good cleaning with a microfiber cloth and some windex left it good as new. In case I forgot to mention it, I took the whole light engine apart before I realized the problem was on the mirror! Oh well, a learning experience.

My HLS5687W does NOT have p-i-p.
post #21252 of 21377
I haven't followed this thread or forum for years and out of the blue got a notification of a new post.
I thought I'd take this opportunity to say that since November of 2006 this TV is still performing beautifully and recently when I had guests over they asked if this was a new (techy) TV because the picture was so impressive.
It's one of those larger $ purchases that I have had no regrets about.
I wonder what other owners experiences are.
post #21253 of 21377
Although I have replaced the bulb, this TV has been the best purchase I made over the past 5+ years!

The picture is just as beautiful as the day I bought, and like you, many of my friends still ask me if the TV is brand spanking new!

I've never even had to replace a bulb and we are still enjoying it.

It is absolutely an end-user task. You won't be doing anything more than what you'd do if you changed the lamp. Lamp changeouts are end-user tasks, and you might as well get used to this procedure as you'll likely need to replace the lamp at least once or twice in the life of the set.)
  1. Make sure TV is off.
  2. Remove the lamp cover (the small, grill panel on the back of the set).
  3. Inspect the spring-loaded safety switch to ensure it is making good contact when the panel is secured. If not, bend the switch slightly to make sure it does.
  4. While you're in here, you may want to reseat the lamp in case it's the culprit. You do this by removing the screws securing the lamp. Grasp the hinged handle on the lamp. Pull straight out. Then push it back into place firmly. Replace screws.
  5. Replace the lamp cover panel.

The switch that you manipulated is there for safety reasons. It would not be safe to remove the lamp while the TV is on. Therefore the switch is designed to kill power to the set in the event the lamp cover panel is removed. It has been hypothesized that the switch is either not installed precisely enough at the factory or become slightly dislocated during shipping.

In either case, you certainly can't do any harm by trying the aforementioned procedure. Please report back to us regarding your results.

***Follow-up: Not long after I originally posted that in March, I started having random shutdowns. I did the procedure, but while "manipulating" the safety switch, I broke the plastic tab that mounts it to the frame. Therefore I wound a rubber band around the switch to permanently keep it depressed. Then I just let the switch dangle. I've had no further problems with random shutdowns. I wish I could find a replacement part for the switch itself (it's just a one-piece into which a small cord is inserted.). That way, if I ever have to have warranty work done, the tech won't furrow his brow about my having mucked around the set. Otherwise, everything has been working fine. Just be more careful than I was about "manipulating" the switch.***

I will pass that info to my friend at work!!

I have a 6187W and this weekend the tv just shut down and there were 3 blinking lights on the front. I turned it back on and it ran for the rest of the day. The next day I turned the tv on and it only stayed on with a picture for less than 10 seconds and then got the flashing 3 lights. Each time I turn the tv on the picture will turn on but only for a few seconds. My question is can the bulb be bad and still light up for a few seconds or is this some other problem. I hate to by a bulb only to find out it is something else. It is the original bulb with over 12000 hrs on it. I removed the lamp and put it back in hoping it would fix it but it did not. The tv right now shows 3 flashing lights on the front.

Very likely to be a failing lamp. Yes, a failing lamp can be fired up and it can run briefly. I assume you're hearing the normal start-up and run sounds?

The tv starts up normally and I don't hear any unusual sounds. I guess it is time for a new lamp. I can't complain because I have a lot of hours on the original bulb.Thanks for the info. Is it worth the extra money for a Philips bulb over a generic?

Did you notice a picture quality improvement?
post #21266 of 21377
so after 5 years of being a near flawless set about 6 months ago my tv got it's first "white dot". Researched it and found out the unfortunate truth, that it's a light tunnel issue. This was shortly after the "extended warranty/settlement" period had ended so no free repair for me. It went about 4 months with just the 1 dot, and then a 2nd started in March. Over the last 4 weeks several more have popped up so sadly I have been looking for a replacement. Ended up going with a LG LED, but I will miss this set. Just didn't seem financially sound to get the light tunnel replaced, as well as a new bulb (its still on the original)

I have a HL-S5088 since 2006. Last week all of a sudden it won't turn on. When I tried to start it, it will go through the start up process, with click and beep, but the screen never light up. After a few seconds the TV will give off a continuous beeping sound. After 30 or 40 seconds the TV will restart itself twice with the same result. All 3 three lights at the bottom of the TV would flash.

Since I never change the light, I've brought a new light, and replace it, but still the same result. Does anyone know what the issue was and how to fix it? Thanks.

But your problem may be different.

I couldn't help but notice your recent repair of your tv required replacement of the main board. Due to the age of our tv's can you tell me if your repairs involved new or used parts. More importantly do you have the vendor you purchased this through and the part number of the board.

Im in need of a new main board as well and could use some guidance. When I pulled my tv apart the part numbers on it didn't correspond to any online searches.

Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

Thanks...

Hi,

I've swapped out the color wheel and ballast. It was easier then I expected. Nothing too complicated to disconnect. Now the TV is working fine..

I have an 87 model and recently notice that my picture settings no longer hold their values.  I change a picture settings like brightness in "Custom" mode for example, then after 20 mins or so, there's a black screen, and my setting are returned to their previous settings.  Doesn't matter if is Custom, Dynamic, Movie, etc. they all change back.  Is this beginning of the end?  I love this TV and don't want to get rid of it but I do not want to spend $1,000 to fix.

 

any ideas?
