samsung hl-r5067w problems

by leestogner / August 25, 2009 9:56 PM PDT

Iam not a tech head and I love my tv. However,it started freezing up and cutting off radomly. TWC tech came out and we eliminated them as the problem. I live in a rural area and can't find much help. Could it be a bad bulb? I can see it burning from the back of the set but it does not stay on and even when it is glowing in the rear of the set there is no picture/image of any kind on the screen.

leestogner,

If the lamp is on in the back, it's probably not the lamp but something internal. You might schedule a service call to have the unit inspected. Unfortunately, it's difficult to diagnose without being there.

Where is the digital board located on this set? Also, thanks for your help. I hope I can repair this set at least until times are better to replace it.

I took the back off the set and the bulb is burning bright. However, when I look thru the portholes in the side of tthe set it does not appear that the light is being projected on the back of the set. It also cuts off after several minutes with me holding down the blue swith in the rear that the bulb carriage holds down. At no time in this procees is there any image of any kind on the set. HELP!!!!

oh i forgot to say the digital board is on the left hand side of the tv when you have the back lower pannel off. there is a plastic cover that needs to be removed that covers around the inputs. you need to remove the hole unit on the left hand side. a lot of cables on the top of the top board. they are not the same size so it makes it easy to plug them back in. just got to match up the sizes. after you remove the hole unit there are 3 cables that unhook from the digital board. the digital board is in a metal case the case also has the RF line in's that you screw cable into from ether a cable box or from your cable company. after you remove the case there are two screws on the back of the case that need to be removed to open the case. also there are nuts around the two screw in jacks on the part that sticks up you need to loosen them. then there are 4 nuts that need to be unscrewed that have screw threads in them so you can screw in vga cables and 2 of them are also in the dvi hook up that goes to the light engine. after those are removed the case should open up. as you are looking at the back hook ups on the right hand side of the board you will see a dnie chip. this chip is most likely the issue. go to that web page I told you about and look at the fix. a bolt some nuts a few washers and a peace that has a flat end to pust against the chip. you want to ajust it so you have to push down on it a little to get the screws in on the dvi and the agp nuts. then install the back two screws and tighten the nuts on the RF jacks. then put the tv back together enought to test. you dont have to put the back pannel on the hole way. you can use the wire that goes to the switch to hold that switch back. just dont forget to plug any wires in or it wont work. It isn't that hard to do if you know anything about computers.
