Question about Samsung HLP6163W 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Recently my Samsung DLP HLN617W started giving me problems after my 5 year extended warranty ran out. First problem started with the set powering itself off. After poking around on some forums learned that that if you unplug the set it will sometimes reset it. That appears to work for now. The next interesting problem is the entire screen has a red tint. Again I start searching for forums to address this problem. A few suggest geting into the maintenance mode on the set. Here is the sequence to do this press "mute 182 power". Now once you get into the maintenance mode be CAREFUL. Before you make any changes make sure you write down the current settings. Unless you are skilled or trained in working on these monsters I suggest that you be extremely careful. I checked the color tablet to make sure the color wheel was functioning correctly. The red, blue and green look o.k. Black and white the same. A few patterns appeared and looked ok. I went back and reset any functions that could be reset. THis cleared the red tint problem. No I have the new problem of the aging pattern not going away. Apparently this happens when replacing the bulb. So how can this be resolved.
I am actually having the same problem. I just reciently installed a new bulb and messing around in the service menus, and ended up with the same problem. I found that if if in the same menu the aging pattern was in, I think it was the last menu, and click on the EW RESET, let the TV reset and that should fix your problem.
