Admitidly, my settings are litle dark. I was playing with it a bit and Samsung's defualt "Movie Mode" is Contrast 90 Brightness 45, which seems closer to what you calibrated. Note that Gamma is -3 in the Detailed Settings Menu with Movie Mode.

I set my Gamma to 0. But adjusting it to -3 and running the Calibration I still get 100 contrast.

How do I get the right contrast setting then? The Avia DVD told me to turn my contrast up so that it is as high as it can go before the top two boxes start to bleed together. I turned it up to 100% and I could still see a clear line between the two boxes.

So what am I doing wrong? My Contrast and brightness seems to be different than what most people have calibrated. Other than that my setting are very close to others on this thread.

One other thing, What color settings are you guys running? I am running Normal.

Yep Normal. After reading your posts I went back and played with the settings. I know many feel that high contrast is needed with Sammy DLPs. I have the 5676S, and after my testing the contrast setting of 27 seems spot on for games, movies and HDTV. I did up the contrast to 60 - 70 - 80 and even 90 (as suggested by the default sammy "movie" mode but in all cases it's just too bright.

So after fussing for days I settled back where I started:
Movie
Contrast:27
Brightness:51
Sharpness:0
Color:65
Tint: G-55 R-45
Color Tone:Normal
Everything else OFF

Hope that helps. Of course, if you sit in a bright room this may not apply.

Hey I need some help with this TV, HLT 6176s

I was playing xbox and screen went out. The lamp light came on and then all leds are now lit on the front of TV. I ordered a rpl lamp from DLPsource.com and just replaced it and it still isn't working. From looking at the rpl lamp and old oem lamp there seem to be some differences.

Where is everyone getting their rpl lamps from. This TV is less than 2 years old...

Hi all,

After a little Google, it seems that I have found some who are having the same problem that I do with my Samsung HL-T5076. I also hear a loud popping sound that comes from my set at any given time, it doesn't matter if I have the set active or if it's turned off. I never have the volume up on the TV itself (always running 5.1). The only idea that I have is that it may be some switch that cuts on and it rattles the entire case. The sound sound's like plastic popping or breaking.

I purchased this set in Feb 08 and my warranty is about to run out and I would like to know if this horrible sound, that ruins movie experiences, my quiet time, and gaming is covered under the warranty?

I hope someone can help me out because I know some of the post in this thread are a little aged.

BTW: Picture is fantastic!
post #1687 of 1965
Pretty much everyone has reported the same problem. It's caused by the cabinet heating up and the expanding plastic pieces moving against each other. A partial solution is to slightly loosen all the back screws around the lamp area.
post #1688 of 1965
I take it by partial solution, you mean that this malfunction is not covered by the Samsung warranty. I see.

Not that I am looking for a walk though but, can anyone point in the right direction so I can attempt this mod. The knock is somewhat annoying and after the 11 months that we have had it, I don't think I can take it anymore.

Thanks for all the help thus far.
post #1689 of 1965
It's a simple mod, just go to the back of the tv and loosen every screw you can find. I didn't leave mine totally loose but ran them back down to where they just touched. A better fix would be to put some thin felt material between the back panel and the back cover at each screw and just snug the screws in.

2 ?

1 Does this TV upconvert? and how do I know if it is ?

and I have aorange spot on the lower left corner, it is noticeable during dark scenes. Thanks
post #1691 of 1965
Yes it upconverts, hook up a DVD player via HDMI and see if it looks better than SD/480i
post #1692 of 1965
Did anyone ever discover a solution to the sagging problem? I have a Samsung HL-T5676S and the image is bowed a little and the bottom of the image is cut off.

Before anyone says it, it's not a zoom problem. I first noticed it when I was playing Guitar Hero World Tour on my Xbox 360 because the information at the bottom of the screen was cut off. I tried switching to every possible picture size, every input, every menu setting and nothing seems to help. I can barely see the volume bar and I can't see the sleep timer. If anyone were to think it was something to do with any device attached to an input, why would the volume display be cut off. That's something the TV would put in the same place no matter what's going on. I would say it's about 1/15th of the image that is being cut off at the bottom. It's exactly like a projector that needs the keystone and image placement adjusted.

Any ideas on adjusting the mirrors or anything like that?

Thanks!
post #1693 of 1965
It's easy to adjust the mirror that affects the bottom of the picture. Loosen the four philips screws along the top rear of the set, then adjust the left and right slotted posts next to the screws to raise or lower the left and right bottom edges of the picture. Finally, tighten the four screws.

HOLY CRAP! I've been living with this problem for months now! You're amazing! Thank you so much! Now I just have to figure out what to do about the slight bow in the middle. I've heard of people putting folded up paper in the front behind Samsung logo.
post #1695 of 1965
I have a tech comeing this week is there anything i can suggest to get the trapazoid affect (narrow at the top on 4.3 images) to go away? He said there may be adjustments in the menu. Thanks
post #1696 of 1965
I started having a problem with my HL-T6176s this week. While watching a movie it began to flash colors and make a high pitched noise. I turned it off and eventually the noise stopped, I turned it back on and was able to finish the last 20 or so minutes of the movie.

Today while playing Rock Band the same thing happened, does this mean my bulb or color wheel or what?

TIA!
post #1697 of 1965
A high pitched noise usually indicates a color wheel problem, but it could also be one of the cooling fans. When my color wheel when bad on my HLN617 it almost sounded like a circular saw cutting wood.

So, it doesn't happen all the time, I guess I will wait for it to die. Yesterday while watching another movie I could see that the brightness was jumping around alot very quickly. I can still watch even when the colors are flashing but of course it looks terrible.

Should I wait for it to die to determine the actual problem? To me it seems like it would be the color wheel since I have the high pitched noise symptom, along with flashing colors, but I don't want to jump in and buy a replacement part that isn't the problem
post #1699 of 1965
Blubs when tthey die do not make any noise. My color wheel noise was intermittent. Colors flashing sounds like you color wheel is going out of sync.

Well the tech came today, I can't beleive I waited so long, he adjusted the screws on the upper part of teh Tv in the rear, while doing so he pulled up a service menu with lines on it and made it pretty close to haveing the same amount of line showing on each side.

The TV now has even black bars on both sides and the tv does not appear to have crooked lines while watching shows with tickers/espn and what have you, geometery appears to be about perfect.

I will keep you informed as I watch more.

How do I pull up the service menu?

How Do I check the lamp life?

I noticed in the service menu it says lamp type phillips, if I replace the bulb with a diffrent brand do I need to change that? thanks

service menu = (while power is off)mute 1 8 2 power

I am not at home right now to see where the watt hours are located ... just be careful when your in there, the potential to screw something up is huge

The lamp brand should be automatically detected

it is probably dirt/dust on the inside of the screen ... not very common but it happens especially if the inside of the screen was touched during manufacturing with an ungloved hand over time the dust will be attracted to the oily hand spot and eventually look burnt/browned. May need to clean it yourself or have a tech come out.
post #1704 of 1965
Do you have to take it apart to clean it? can I get to it from aport? it is most noticable on the lower left corner.
post #1705 of 1965
Pop off the back porthole cover while the set is on and you can see if anything is laying on the bottom lens cover. Not much you can do with the screen without taking it off and apart.
post #1706 of 1965
the circle port in the rear middle? I tried but it is on there and I don't want to break it.
post #1707 of 1965
Just pry one of the edges, it'll come right off. It's there to check out the back of the screen and get dust accumulations out. You won't break it.

Hello! I have owned a 5676S since March of last year. Originally, this TV has this ridiculous flickering problem that was terrible, I read somewhere on here that someone managed to fix their flicker problem by changing one thing in the service menu (not sure what but it was a lamp setting), so I did the same and the flicker died down, then I reverted everything back to factory. After that I had an issue where my screen would show 9 vertical bars a little over an inch in width from top to bottom, and the image produced within those bars was significantly blurry compared to everything outside them. I mainly noticed this through HDMI on my PS3, but have confirmed that my DVD player does the same thing through component.

I finally decided, since my warranty is coming to an end I need to figure this out. So I request repair via Samsung website. Repair guy comes tomorrow.

Just playing around, I plug the PS3 from HDMI 2, into HDMI 1 and the problem is gone, I thought! I go buy Boondock Saints on Blu Ray and in the middle of the movie and the rest of the night the bars came back! (The bars are harder to see during a movie). After that, the service place calls to set a day/time which again is tomorrow. ...The bars are now gone again...

How am I going to explain myself when the problem that is there 90% of the time is mysteriously repairing itself more and more as the time nears for a service guy to come? I'm trying to watch the screen so I can get photographic evidence until then!

Suggestions?
post #1709 of 1965
i left the tv off for awhile, turned it back on and the blurred lines were back. i managed to get a few pics on my iphone just incase fate puts me in a weird position.

Same thing as when you take a crying, feverish baby / canine to the doctor / vet - once they get in there, the problem is gone.
