Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

Broken edge of bulb- TV won't work

My HL-R6167W was making a loud whining, grinding sound at times for a while, until one day a loud pop and the set stopped working. Showed the lights on the power button. I took it apart thinking it was the color wheel, but the wheel is intact, though there were some bits in the well. Upon closer inspection, only the edge of the wheel had a bit of minor chipping on side, but the wheel was completely intact. I then took out the bulb and removed it from its housing, after finding a few small clear glass chunks nearby. The bulb is also intact, except for one corner. This is the square bulb and only the corner is chipped off. What could have caused this and what should I replace?: I was going to replace the bulb and wheel, but I am confused as to what could have chipped the bulb corner off? Also, if replacing the wheel, how do I find out whether I have and L3 or L6 chassis? It really appears that the only thing that happened with the color wheel was the bulb corner got chipped off and pieces were blown into the wheel by the fan, so I am really not sure what all should be repaired.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    So how do you determine which chassis if the color wheel needs to be replaced? If there is the noted minor chipping on the edges of the side of the wheel, does that need replacing or it that not a given? Thanks

    I found something that indicated blank version means L3. Is this correct?

The color wheel was the cause of the loud whining noise. The only item in the set under pressure that could possibly pop is the lamp. The fact that you have the 3 lights on is the lamp failure indicator. The lamp driver or ballast can also fail and give the same light error but I have never had one to pop.I would replace the lamp for sure. Also the lamp as you know sits right in front of the color wheel so perhaps it popped and fragments of the lamp ended up on, near or around the color wheel

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W


First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

HAVE GRINDING OR HIGH PITCHED SOUND?

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE COLR WHEEL HAS FALLEN APART AND WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. I RECOMMEND CALLING AN AUTHORIZED TECHNICIAN TO DO THE REPAIR. YOU CAN CALL 1-800-SAMSUNG TO FIND THE CLOSEST SERVICE CENTER

I was watching tv then heard a loud crashing or smashing sound, then the tv went black. Now there is no picture and the lamp light on the front of the tv keep blinking.


Sounds like your color wheel is busted...

This was not an expensive part nor too much of a complicated process on my hl-r5067w (see here: http://mistermarbles.blogspot.com/2008/04/replacing-color-wheel-for-samsung-hl.html), but you'll need to figure out part source and process differences on yours.

Good luck!

HL-R5656W Unit made loud pop and pic went black, ordered bulb but there is a loud crackling with some flashing going on when I re-inserted old bulb, is this the ballast that needs replaced?


Wait until you get the new bulb to determine that. The old bulb is probably arching as it tries to start.90% of the time the new bulb will do the trick.
