Audio sound fades in and out, sometimes for a few seconds, sometimes for long stretches of time, I've heard this is a common problem with this model, how much should the repair average, is it easy enough to do myself?

    it start to crackle and then it will start to get a little noiser and then

    it will cut off the sound that is. do you think its the audio power board

    or can it be the same thing you were saying in the response?

    I have a similar problem. When I first turn the TV on, the sound is fine for about 30 seconds. Then the sound cuts out and there is sometimes crackling and poping sounds. I have also heard a long humming sound at times. After warming up for a period of time, turing the set off and on seems to resolve the problem. Once the sound comes back on, there problem is gone for the remainder of the day/evening.

    Any ideas?

    I have just ordered my 4th replacement surround pwb in 8 years. If it's poor soldering why does it reappear on every rebuilt board after 2 years, unless there is a design problem. I did a visual inspection under a magnifying lens and could not find any heat-related damage.

I have a Samsung HLT6176s and the lamp went out. I bought a new one, then 2 days later the screen faded to black then cycled off and on with no picture. I left it alone for a few minutes then i it turned...

Remove the lamp especially if you heard a high pitched whine/fan like sound or even a grinding noise.

Look where the lamp faces and examine the color wheel (common failure part in these sets) to see if pieces are broken and missing or the wheel is shattered.

If so it can be a do it your self repair as You Tube has video instructions for replacing the wheel in these sets.
