If the lamp is blown out, you will see shards of glass floating around in the bulb. The wires that connect to the glass element in the center will be "disconnected". If the set is less than a year old the bulb is under warranty. All you will have to do is contat the people that sold you the televison and tell them the bulb is blown and do a warranty claim. Good luck!

Samsung Hl r6167w started buzzing and shut down


Hello, the "buzzing" sound could be from a broken lamp, or the bearing in the color wheel. First pull out the lamp and inspect it, if it look like it's not broken inside or looking burnt, it may be the color wheel.....tks

Samsung p6163wx - lamp sign flashing with a loud noise fan on, no picture. Replaced with a new bulb - did not solve the problem


This set may use a color wheel if it has a lamp. A bad color wheel will make a fan like or high pitched sound.

If the wheel actually shatters (it can) the set will not function and will turn the lamp off.

See photo of color wheel and if you need to know I can tell you how to look at it.

Ballast or color wheel next?


The color wheel will normally spin-up even for a brief moment when the set is powered up. I have not seen a color wheel go out with a lamp. I have seen a ballast go bad with a lamp. I would replace the ballast first. You did not state wheather the color wheel was noisy or not. On the Samsung DLP, the color wheel is normally very noisy before it is gone. I hope this will help you.

TV won't stay on


Hello Fonzell!
Regarding the tv turning, my question is, do you hear a clicking sound? if so, it's most probable tio be your ballast, that might not have enough voltage to keep on with your lamp, and that's why it shuts off.
You could try replacing it and seeing if it resolves your issue, I believe they're running around 70 dlls..
have a great one ! :)

Broken edge of bulb- TV won't work


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

About the color wheel option


Hello Brandon B,
look on the side of the unit there will be a sticker with Model number, serial number and Version code. The version code will tell me what color wheel you need. There maybe some CCA adjustment you need to do using the remote in Service mode. Let me know what the version number. We will go from there. You can contact www.interactiverepair.com they will walk you through the installation process

Best regards

Samsung HLN617W wont come on


Unit does not have a flywheel. Assemblies include lamp, ballast, color wheel, dmd board, light tunnel, main and/or digital and analog pcb as well as power supply. These are all the assemblies in DLPs. The problem you described is usually lamp or ballast, but can also be from dmd or other circuit boards. Make sure lamp cover door safety switch is secure and fully engaged after replacing lamp or removing rear cover. I admit these sets are not cheap to repair. Good luck, Russmann.
