Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

Samsung HL-P6163W color wheel won't power up, so TV won't come on.

Recently replaced color wheel (original was noisy), TV came on, except that colors were reversed. Removed a jumper and then colors were fine. TV worked ok for several days, then stopped turning on. Looked inside back, saw no lamp light. Figured I jarred the lamp (was original one). Bought a new Phillips E23 lamp from discount-merchant.com, installed it, but no change. Looked closely at all connections I had touched, all appeared ok. Ordered and replaced ballast from samsungparts.com. No change. Pulled lamp back out, rigged case switch to stay closed, watched color wheel with mirror, and saw it was not turning on startup attempt. Figured maybe I screwed up the install, so I pulled it back out. Found everything ok, but wheel kinda stiff, hard to turn, maybe even slightly harder to turn than original. Also noticed it squeaks in a couple of places while turning manually. I never felt it before it was originally installed, so I wouldn't contaminate it, so I have no reference. Is this normal? Or, is my new color wheel bad? If it is normal, how do I figure out what is not powering up the color wheel? Any ideas for a next step?

Check the ribbon cable coming from the color wheel, if you plug it in backwards it will do this.

SOURCE: Samsung DLP HL-R5667W lamp won't fire. Changed

Was the replacement lamp the same part number as the original as there are different arc gaps for different lamps and the wrong arc gap will cause the lamp not to light. Since the ballast is powering up the lamp should light if the baalast is matched to the correct arc gap of the lamp being used.

SOURCE: bought my hitachi 50vs69a tv 3 years ago. put new

Take the lamp out and examine it. Are there any blackened markes that look like arcing marks? If there are then the lamp may be faulty and that could be caused by the ballast but in my experience of working with Sany and Philips lamps, the ballast units generally fail without causing lamp problems.
I should go for a new lamp.
Hope that helps.

There is a whining sound upon powering up my HL-P6163W which softens after about 5 minutes, but doesn't disappear completely. I think the source is either the color wheel or the cooling fan. How can I...


It the Colors wheel,cooling fan will shut down,if it start making noise to the fan,because the whole projection egine and the bulb link to it.The fan have to run a certain RPM to keep the tv running without problems.These colors wheels run 1000 RPM to start to give the tv colors and it make out Flexy glass and plastics.What ur opinion,who will give u the problems,first as parts wise.Ok any noises like whinning in the tv alway the colors wheel starting to buckle and warp.Getting worse make motor noises and briddles enough will brake and shatter it into ten of hundred of pieces.Who know,than inside what else will cause the rythum of the RMPS running of the tv,when u replaced it.

Do i have to reset tv after changing color wheellamp and ballast.


No, but if you can update firmware, it would be recommended. Were the parts original manufactured...matching the monitor (TV)? No details on make/model.

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.
