Bought this TV about 4 years ago. it had the usual HD tuner problems that became evident within a week of purchasing it. Eventually (and i do mean eventually) the repairer came out and installed the updated firmware. This did not totally fix the freeze problem but from that point on it was manageable. At about 12 months the hard drive failed ( after the warranty ran out ) so we took to attaching a computer to the TV via the 18 pin port and downloading any thing we might have missed on TV. This

I wonder if you can give some advice. Please. I have a Samsung DLP HLT5076S that is 3 1/2 years old. I replaced the lamp in November 2010 from a bulb site on line because I had no picture and three flashing lights. After reading several forums this seemed the solution. After that seemed to work well. However, shortly thereafter I began to hear a very slight buzzing noise. So I researched that and most things pointed to color wheel. I didn't hear the high pitch whining though just a slight buzz.


There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both - either can cause transformer buzz and / or inability to power up.Any caps in these sections (or any other section for t ... Flat Panel Televisions

I have a sanyo dp46848 46 inch lcd flat screen. It started messing up by half the screen having a dark tint. I was told it was the main board.
