Re: Samsung Model HLR6167W
Does the TV appear to be cycling on and off, like its attempting to boot up? Or, does it just not come on at all? Don't miss the lamp door interlock switch. Many Samsung DLPs have tempermental door switches. Try re-installing the door or manually hold the switch in the closed postion and try to power it up. If the lamp comes on and stays lit, you've found your problem.

No. This is a DLP TV. It gets it's color by a color wheel. If color seems to drift across screen or there is a loud-ish whining noise from back of TV that you can here clear across a room, then this color wheel may be bad. They wear out.
It sounds like the main power supply has a bad capacitor. its a typical issue with a lot of electronic. look on the main power board that the outlet cord comes in to the TV and check all the cylindrical components for swelling, leakage, or singe makes.
Look at the Lamp Module and you will see ONE gols colored screw. Remove that screw,then gently wiggle and pull out the Lamp Module. Look into the center of the lamp and you will see shattered glass or a white powder inside,If so replaced the lamp. The Lamp Code is located on the Left side of the set. It is a sticker labeled Lamp Code. Order a Lamp by this code. Replace the lamp in reverse order and reinstall the lamp Door with all four screws.
Samsung is notorious for having bad color wheels in their DLPs. Well lets just say they are like toasters, they only last a certain amount of time. If the color wheel isn't spinning or is broken, the set will power down almost immediately after you hit the button, you may not even hear the entire fire up jingle. Check the wheel, if you can see the bulb light up for that split second. Actually, check it whether the bulb lights up or not.
You need to do an aggressive reset on the TV. This solved problem
completely for me. You must unplug the TV when it is on. Repeat this
several times until the TV is jolted back into the factory default
settings. The issue is actually with the programming I believe. The
clue was that the display worked 100% perfect in HDMI mode, and the
problem only existed in the cable setting, no matter if wires were
attached or not.
Again, do an aggressive reset to the TV by unplugging it several times
while it is on. It may not register the reset at first because after
all, the actual problem is a programming issue and it's having trouble
recognizing commands in the first place.
all 3 lights blinking means lamp has a fault the service manual says replace the lamp. If you need the service training manual for that model let me know and I will post the link as the training manual has excellent trouble shooting breakdowns for that model DLP
it is not related to the failure of the fan or color wheel by anything other then the age of the set..the lamp has a normal life of 4000 to 6000 hours and since your set is around 3.5 years old it probably has that amount of time on it..the lamp is consumer replaceable and many places sell them..the lamp number should be on a small sticker on the side of the set
