I have a Samsung DLP 56" TV bought in early 2006 (model HLR5678) and it's been GREAT until just this past week when a gray "shaded" vertical line appeared (about an inch wide) on the far left edge of the screen. You can still see the picture through this area but it has just happened. Could this be something to do with the bulb? We have never left the TV on "paused" so am not sure what may have caused the line to appear. Any ideas on how to correct this? Thanks!
Had this TV for 3 years 100% trouble free. It now turns off at random just like somebody hit the power switch. On one occasion the temp light was on, but just the one time.
Hit the power on the remote it comes back on and works fine. There is no pattern to these shut downs, this can happen after the TV is on 5 minutes or 2hrs or it does not happen at all. I have 5456 hrs on the lamp.
Have a HLR 5677. JUST REPLACED THE BULB AT 8434 HOURS. WENT TO RESET THE BULB COUNTER IN SERVICE MENU BUT IT WONT RESET. PUT IN MUTE182/POWER. WENT TO OPTIONS. FIRST ITEM SAYS CLEAR LAMP, SECOND ITEM SAYS USER RESET. CLICKING ON CLEAR LAMP DOES NOTHING. AM I SUPPOSED TO CLICK ON USER RESET AS WELL? NOT SURE AND I DONT WANT TO SCREW UP THE SET THANKS
