Question about Samsung HL-T6187S Television

7 Answers

Picture went out on a samsung hl-t6187s

My samsung hl-t6187s is 16 monthsold. While playing WII the picture went dark then out. I unplugged the TV for half an hour and plugged it back in but still no picture. This set has LED lamps that are supposed to last the life of the TV. When I turn it on it looks at first like it wants to light up but then goes dark. Is this common with Samsung? I hope not since I have four other friend that bought this set with my recommendation.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, could be anything. Normally, the front panel LED should blink or at least show sign that power is getting inside. Additionally, blinking LEDs would often indicate that the unit has gone into protective mode and the sequence/count of blinks would indicate an error code pointing to probable area of fault. A completely dead or no indicator could possibly be a power supply issue.

This of course would require opening the unit, perform voltage measurements, determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

If it is under warranty contact samsung and get it repaired or replaced.
Its good to contact samsung first other than performing any troubleshooting.
Also if you try to get it repair yourself you may lose the warranty..

The problem you are describing seems to be a Ballast issue... Does your TV make a clicking noise when the power is pressed? A single "strong" click, or multipple "weak" clicks?

If you would like to replace the ballst in Your HL-S or HL-T series TV (Which includes your HL-S5687W) you can purchase it at the link below for only $66 bux:

Step by step detailed installation guide is available here:

When the TV went out, did you hear a whining or screetching noise? The HL-S and HL-T series lamp based projection sets are notorious for failing of the colorwheel... Colorwheel can be found at the below link for $79.99

http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-Replacement-Color-Wheel-HLS-HLT-Series- p/samsungcolor_wheel_bp96-01579a.htm

Installation guide can be found here:

I hope this helps... i don't see anything else that might be wrong with your TV other than the Lamp, ColorWheel, or Ballast...

Please let me know the results.. It's good information for all of us here.............


Thanks.............

I think it is time for New Lamp in your TV as existing lamp (bulb) has reached at an end of working hours.

Does your set have a warranty? 2 years? 3 years?

I would contact the dealer or samsung for repair service if it is still under the warranty.


If your set is outside of warranty or you wish advice on how to repair the set press the repost button to get more advice from other experts.

Never had an issue until yesterday... When I turn the tv on,it immediately begins scrolling through all the channels and won't stop. It will not respond to the


I will assume you tried to unplug the set and plug it back in.

If you are using a sat or cable box connected to the cable fitting on the set try connection from the AV jacks to one of the video inputs on the set.

If set does it via the rear jacks it is likely the box and not the set.

Samsung HL-T6187S SOUND DROPPING TO 0? By itself


If you can get at the controls again----undo or unsolder the micro switch for volume down! Remove it and see if set works.

A no brainer in that if that switch is bad and vol down still displays nothing else would work

I have a SAMSUM HL-T6187SA DLP LED 1080P. The problems I see are a Green Tint and the RED(s) display as Blue(ish). John


Hi,

It sound likes the problem of your unit is the light engine. This is very common problem on Samsung DLP TV's and tons of complaint regarding on the picture quality. If you search "Samsung DLP law suit" you will find various comment regarding on the issue.

This part is an expensive one and I would advice you to call Samsung service department (1-800-726-7864) to let it diagnose by their Technician and see if they would cover the parts.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

open the side access panel which is on the upper back sides of the tv. from there, you can get access to the lens. you have to pop out the plug with a flat head screwdriver to get access to the screw. let me know if you need further assistance.
