Question about Samsung HLP6163W 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I don't know how to exactly explain it but there is blue on the screen that sometimes comes up in the outlines of things on screen, but other time with take over the whole screen and it will flicker from the blue to normal color and back. Here is a video of it hope you can see.
if you can" t here is a link
Replace the color wheel again, its gone bad again. the clicking is the ballast trying to fire the lamp. The Ballast will not fire the lamp until the color wheel has reported it has reached an RPM of around 9000rpm. This is a normal sound. Most of the time the color wheel will make a loud whining sound when bearings go bad, sounds like a Airplane using reverse thrusters when landing and a even louder sound when it shatters in the housing. Also the reason it may of gone bad so soon is because they make to versions of this color wheel, Bearing type and the Air type. I don't know who installed your color wheel, but it should of came with a small tag or paper of some sort with numbers on it. Most people throw this away when it is very important to let the unit know which type of wheel is being installed to set the parameters for either type of wheel. Most people who install colors wheels themselves to save money do not know this, and the only way to install the new settings is thru the Factory Service Mode. There are also color parameters to input for the type of wheel being used.
This is your basic Color wheel 101..
Hope I gave you some insite of what may of caused your problem...Please leave comment if more info is needed..Lavell

Testimonial: "It is the color wheel we took it apart and the color wheel is broken inside, thank you so much for your comments!"
I've watch your problem on youtube , that problem can be from main board. But to make sure main board problem, you should check without inputs first. Unplug all input (HDMI, Component, AV in, PC).
Than turn on your tv again. If that conditions still appear, i suggest you to call samsung technician to repair it.
