Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Samsung DLP TV won't turn on

My 61" samsung DLP TV HL-s6187W won't go back on, once its turned off I have to wait a couple of hours before it goes back on. When I try to turn it on it makes a funny sound and the 3 LED lights blink. The TV is 2 years old and this has been happening for over a year. I've replaced the lamp 2 times but it didn't help. The wait in between turning on is getting longer now.

    I have exactly the same problem. We purchased the tv used and the guy recently replaced the bulb. About 3 weeks after we got it the color wheel blew up and we replaced it. Now the tv turns on fine for the first time but then won't turn on after initial shut down. After 2 power attempts all the LEDs flash. Removing power and letting the tv sit for a couple of hours and it turns back on.



    Any clues how to repair?

This sounds to me like one of two possibilities. First, check your ballast. If you're going through bulbs faster than you think you ought to be, you may have a ballast that is overloading. Its the 3" x 8" circuit board that connects directly to the bulb. They are plentiful and often cheap. Thats what I'd try first. If that doesnt' do it, I would invest in a new power supply board. That the board that the tv power cable hooks directly in to. This should give you a start, Comment back if you still need further help. Good luck.

I have a samsung hl-s6187w 61 inch and it keep shutting off.. the screen goes black but i still have sound for about 5 sec then shuts off.. can anyone tell me what the problem is?


I doubt it's the color wheel. When our wheel went bad the TV didn't come on at all. It could be the lamp. Try reseating it first. That fixed a problem the first time for us. Later we had to replace the lamp because the TV was getting dark. It could also be your ballast, but we've never had to change that. I'd start with the lamp.
