Question about Samsung HLP6163W 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

5 Answers

TV shuts off

My TV seems to have a mind of it's own. It keeps shutting down without any input by whoever is watching. When turned back on, it will sometimes stay on all day without any other interruption of viewing. Other times it will shut down 3-5-8-times in a 1/2 hr period before staying on. Other days it may shut down only once during the day, or not shut down at all! I have vaccumed out the vents, the fan is running, I tightened All the electric power connections including all connections in the main circut breaker box. Picture is fine when operating, Cable Co checked input signal everything is OK. Thanks in advance, Dave, Palm Bay FL

Just try this first. Turn on your tv and then put the remote in another room. You may have a dirty or stuck on/off switch. It seems you have done every thig else. Also change the batteries on your remote.I hope this helps you.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Based on your description, would seem to be a loose connection or a colder solder. Most probable triggering would be vibrations from the sound produced by the speaker(s) aggravating the loose connection. One way to test is to use an insulated rod to move/part the wires while the TV set is operational. Of course one must bear in mind the inherent dangers of working with a live set and extremely high voltages. Another test would be to press on lightly on the boards connectors to jar the fault to re-surface.

If it were a loose connector, then re-fitting it back in and making sure that the connector(s) makes positive contact shoould do the job. In certain instances, re-application of heat through a soldering iron on the cold solder should address those issues.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My computer monitor had a similar issue it stayed on for like 10 mins than shut off unexpectedly and it happened alot more and got worse and then I finally looked up this monitor and found out it had a recall because of this issue.. So I suggest you look up this issue on the manufactures web page or just good it beause you might have the same issue but with a T.V

    found this on another site its an exact quote

    "The number one thing I have found with intermitent shutdown is the lamp door switch in the up position.

    This series of models came back from the factory with the switch in the up position and it needs to be in the down position.

    Take a flash light and look through the slots on the lower left side of
    the lamp door in the back of the set. If you can see the top of switch,
    then, thats whats causing your problem.

    Take off the door, there is a tab that holds the switch down. Reseat
    the door and check the switch again with a flashlight. If it is down,
    then the problem is solved. If it is up, try again.

    If you have anymore problems or questions, reply to this post and I will respond."

Most probably it looks like a pre convergence issue which can be related to replacement of pico fuse and the bulbs too. Get a good technician who can identify the correct part and replace it.

My ps3 is hooked up though HDMI to my emerson lc195emx. but the tv says its an unsupported format. why? is it because the tv only has 720p out put??


Try turning off the power to your console using the power switch in the back (first shut it down properly). Unplug the AV cables (if applicable) and the plug in the HDMI cable. Turn on the system and switch your input on your Television to HDMI. (Keep in mind that there may be a few inputs; HDMI1, HDMI2, etc.) The HDMI connection takes a few seconds so be patient. If that doesn't work, re post or ask to chat.

My h1000e takes long to shut down?what could be the cause of this and how do i solve this problem?


Pepper, It seems that you installed something that is causing this problem. What happens is that when you shut Windows down, it has to close all programs running, whether in the foreground or in the background. Now, when all programs are shutting down properly then there is no problem. But when some one decides to resists the shutting down then Windows takes longer to abide by your instructions. You have to find out this/these program/s that you installed recently. Uninstall them if you can do without them. Alternatively close them manually before shutting down. What programs are these? That you alone can find out. Another reason. Does Windows seem to take longer while "Saving Your Settings"? If that happens, then there may be something wrong with Windows. Be prepared to reinstall Windows. Do not get alarmed, but just keep it at the back of your mind. Keep taking backups of your data regularly to be on the safe side.

Once before I had this same problem and FixYa gave me the solution. When you replace the lamp door, there is a switch inside so be sure the door is put in at an angle so to hold the switch up. It solved my problem after numerous repairmen missed it.

When I turn on my A215 S7422 Toshiba it give me a password screen


You may need to consult with whoever you're living with. Seems you got pranked.
If you live by your lonesome, keep in mind that only you can put in a user password. This miracle of some virus, or act of something, is not possible. To my knowledge that kind of virus has to be user specific. Targeting you only.
Contact Toshiba for password woes.
