Question about Samsung HL-S6187W 61 in. HDTV

1 Answer

Broken Mirror I have the Samsung HL-S6187W 61 in. DLP tv. It's a fantastic tv. However, the mirror was broken. I have heard you can go to your local store and purchase a regular mirror that fits your tv for a cheap price and you can have a good picture. However, I have also heard that with broken mirrors your tv can be "scratched" or something on the inside, which requires you to replace the whole thing for perfect picture. Anyone have any advice? And how hard is it to change a mirror?

Re: Broken Mirror

You need to see if the lens where the light comes out is scratched..
if it is then the picture will never be right until you replace for a cheap replacement mirror the picture might be watchable if it is a good quality mirror

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.

No picture, replaced lamp on HL-S6187W. TV makes a audio sound when I turn it on. Lamp does not light.

Did you replace the lamp? Was the Lamp original? Some time if you dont replace the lamp with original you are going to have this issue. Is there any sound. If you have sound and no picture is the Color Wheel.

Thank you,

If you found a bloated capacitor on the circuit board, that one needs to be replaced not the board. You can see the part number on the capacitor itself. Also please look for any burned IC and neighboring components. If you found additional burned components, it also need to be replace. Contact a pro tv technician to replace it.
