Question about Samsung HL-P6163W 61" TV
I've seen where you've advised people regarding problems with their DLP's and wanted your opinion on my problem. Basically when you're watching a DVD or a HD broadcast, the picture blacks out. There's still audio, the lamp is lit and the picture will come back. Once in awhile it will say that it's looking for a signal. I'm pretty confident that it's not the source. I can hook my Tivo box to it through the standard A/V cables and I'll never have a problem. I haven't tried hooking up my DVD in this manner but maybe I will just to check it. After doing some reading, I've come to the conclusion that it may be the digital board but my DVD is hooked up through component cables which are located on the analog board so now I'm not sure. Am I looking in the right place? I have another problem where once in awhile the TV will power off and the 3 lamps on the front will start blinking. It will do this a couple of times and then stay on. It hasn't done that in the last couple of days but I've decided that that may be a ballast problem which I did order a new one. Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: Samsung HLS4266W 43" dlp
Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

HDMI = High Definition Media Interface
DVI = Digital Video Interface
That kind of conflict (that's what it is) is tough for any one company to assist you on since it involves two manufacturers.
If you are very lucky, you might get help from a tech who has already stumbled across the same equipment complement.

SOURCE: Popping and fading of sound
The "popping" sound could be electricity jumping from one place to another.An internal SHORT in a transistor, an internal OPEN in a resistor.Intermittent [sometimes it does,sometimes it dose not] arcing electronic parts.
Dust [metal filings,very fine hair that burns like a fuse] & dirt [anything metal], arcing (shorted) capacitors.Bad connections on ANY ground connector.
Possible:: your surround sound MASKED the popping sounds by acting like a FILTER.Which lets me to think that your problem is in the audio section.

I'm not a TV repair guy but my owners manual states that when all three LED's or lights on the front of the TV are flashing, that the lamp needs to be replaced. Might want to look into this. Good luck!
