Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Black Bar Sir, I recently replaced the color wheel in my Samsung TV and now I have a black bar or band across the bottom of my screen. This cuts off the top of the viewing screen and I am unable to see some of my football scores. This is serious stuff !!!!! Thanks for any advise, Ken

I know this is an old thread, but hopefully this will help someone! The problem is the DMD board is knocked out of alignment. It is adjusted by removing the small cooling fan and loosening the three gold screws that hold the assembly in place (two on the left and one in the middle of the board) AND by loosening the three (or four) spring loaded screws in the middle of the heat sink. Display a test pattern (from the service menu), tape the interlock switch closed (so you can power the set with the back off) and then carefully move the assembly (down is up; left is right.) An assistant helps! Once the image is correct, snug the screws up (they don't need to be torqued down!)

It took me FOREVER to figure this out - hopefully this will help someone else a little faster!

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

The speed of the color wheel needs to adjusted or the CCA values. Both are found in the service menu . If you paid a company to fix the TV, call them and tell them that they forgot to perform these alignments. If you did the repair yourself, you'll have to call around for a price to have a Samsung service center perform these adjustments. I don't recommend consumers access the service menus of modern TVs because one wrong button push and you may cause irrepairable changes to the TV's proper operation.
