Re: Samsung DLP green plaid Screen

I just turned it on with nothing hooked up. The menu is very clear but it flickers, any ideas

Re: Samsung DLP green plaid Screen

Is it just the brightness that changes? Any color change?




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re: Samsung DLP green plaid Screen

mostly brightness in the flicker, no color change other than cloudiness comes and goes every few seconds. ANother thought was DMD board bad? or dlp chip?
Thank you

Not likely the DMD chip, IMO, but possibly the DMD board. I'd be looking for a power supply fluctuation. I have never seen a color wheel do that.

Re: Samsung DLP green plaid Screen

if I could get a dmd board for $100 or less do you think it is worth a try or just throw the tv out? I have $100 in it at this point and it is a 2005 tv
Thanks

I would not change a board without doing some troubleshooting. IMO not worth taking a chance on this set.

Re: Samsung DLP green plaid Screen

What trouble shooting would you do, otherwise I will just have to throw set out to trash
Thanks

Re: Samsung DLP green plaid Screen

I'd start by checking all of the power supplies for fluctuation.

I also have a dlp Samsung I'm having problems with at this point. Mine has a shadow that's covering the left side of the screen. But I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse for now, after the 1st of the year I plan on chunking it and buying a new tv. I've been wanting to upgrade anyway, I wish you luck!
