I have a Samsung HLP 4674w DLP. The picture started to lose color and look like a negative image. Then it would get scrambled and eventually go out. Powering on and off sometimes fixed it, but only temporarily. Sometimes it would also turn off and on by itself. I thought it may be the lamp so I replaced it, but it did not fix the problem. Next I thought it may be the color wheel so I replaced that, but the problem did not go away. Also when this happens the Power switch will not turn the TV off.

HDMI Inputs don't work (and I've tested my components with another TV). When viewing on Component 1 input, the picture has blotchy color, like water colors. Adjusting color and brightness doesn't help. The tint control has no effect, and in fact, the tint slide looks funny on screen. The audio control no longer allows selection of the A/V external. The only setting it allows now is TV. Reset does not change the symptoms.

Hi, My name is Cristina Muller, I livein Trinidad. I bought a Akai LCT3285TA three years ago and now suddenly since a week ago when I turn on the TV I see the hair in blue and some backgrounds in pink, I tried to move the brightness and contrast and hue. When the blue on the hair or around the people disappear the colors are no more bright as I have to put the brightness almost at 100% Do you know how to solve the problem ? thank you very much for your assistance

My Samsung DLP 5663W was making the loud humming noise. Picture was just fine, but the noise was loud. I checked both fans which seemed to be fine, so I ordered the replacement color wheel. When I replaced the color wheel and turned the set back on, the skin color on everyone is bright blue. What can I do?


On the metal box where the two cables from the color wheel plugged look for a tiny rectangular opening in the metal shield---there is a tiny jumper plug there, remove it carefully with a tiny pair of needle nose pliers.One of the things t ... Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
