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

1 Answer

My Samsund DLP Rear Projection TV keeps turning itself off.

The TV keeps turning itself off, it occurs every five to ten minutes, sometimes more often. I have found that pointing a fan at the back of the tv where the buld is located seems to prevent this problem. This would suggest a problem with the TV's own internal cooling system.

When the TV turns itself off all three lights flash on the front panel

    Same problem. Just replaced bulb 2 weeks ago. Was working fine, then started having problems turning on, and now turns itself off every two minutes or so. So frustrating. Any help? Thanks.

Powering on and off


I must say this is a wierd problem here. First of all, make sure that the T.V. has enough space, and the cables arent layed on each other, give each cable its space. Now, try to check the main T.V. cable, is it strongly plugged in? because it should be, might be that your cable is weak and gets loose sometimes, so try to plug it in in a strong way. Keep me informed.

The tv turns itself off periodically. Sometimes it goes for hours and other times it happens several times in a 5 minute period.


I suspect a bad connection/dry joint in the power supply.
Look for regulator I/c's on heat sinks. They are favourite to get dry joints and anything that is heavy like transformers and chokes.

Why does my Samsung DLP tv turn off by itself, sometimes after 1-2 minutes?


Either the lamp is aging or the vents are blocked causing the thermal sensor to over heat.

check for popped or raised tops on caps in power supply. also try unplugging set for 5 minutes and resetting it. How about does your color wheel spin up? if your color wheel don't startup then your tv will also shut down. also check all fans they all should be running at turn on. if all fails i would say its your light engine.
