Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung DLP HL-P6163W with no picture

I came home one night and my TV had sound but no picture. There's no menu or anything coming onto the screen. It didn't make any noises previous to this happening. It was working for my wife at 5:45 and she turned it off when she left the house. When I turned it on at 6:30 the described problem existed. I replaced the lamp and that did nothing. I've had a certified tech out and he said it wasn't the ballast or color wheel. He said "it might be the digital board or light engine." He said that the digital board would cost about $800-$950 to fix. Any ideas?

Might is not a good word from a tech. there is nothing you can really do yourself without possibly doing damage. browse the Internet for the board at a better price then have him come back and install you will at least save some money. good luck wish this was a quick fix problem if the tv has not been out of warranty long call the manufacturer they might still honor the part.

Samsung Big screen mod. HL-P6163W made load pop, then buzzing sound with screen going to black and white. Make buzzing sound and no picture when turned back on?


This set has a problem with the color wheel falling apart, which if one of the segments should fly off while the set was on it may sound like a loud pop, and the buzzing sound could be mechanical in nature with the wheel being off balance. If smoke appeared after the loud pop, then it could be a capacitor blowing in the power or video circuits. This model uses two different types of Color Wheel assemblies, either an L3 or a L6 and it would be listed on a white label on the Light Engines metal frame. Hope your solution is this easy.

I have a HL-P6163W, hooked to dish network hd


Fire the TV Tech! Your problem is the adjustment to the color wheel timing. To correct this: With TV OFF -> on remote, press MUTE, 1, 8, 2, POWER. The TV will come up in service mode: ( Left / Right arrow keys for item selection, Up / Down to change values, Menu to return to previous menu, Power to exit Service Mode)

Enter the submenu of item 1. DDP1011. Now, adjust item 4. INDEX DELAY to correct the "clay facing" problem you are having . Default value is 47.

You should have a "problem" image paused to check you work if possible. I hope this was of some assistance, best wishes.

Samsung dlp color issue


I just had a service tech out and replaced the color wheel. now i have the same issue with the color...the people all look blue. He told me that now the the digital board is bad. It's the board were all of the connections go. I'm not convinced, as I remember reading something about color settings needing to be adjusted after color wheel replacement.
