Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a samsung HLN617W svc model hln617wx/xaa, I had a series of things happen that may or may not be related. Thats why I am asking....
It started out with a shadow on the bottom right corner..Not to bad, I found that this was a common problem. I lived with it. Then when you turn it off, you cant turn it back on for about an hour or two. I have to unplug it and let it sit. I figured the ballast was going out. Then, I was watching it...no hum or any noise, The screen went to black and white. Well, I thought it was the color wheel. After about three days, I started to get these flashes on the screen. Not all the time but every once in a wile it would start flashing white. Kind of like over exposed film. It does that for about 1-2 minutes then stops flashing.
I took the tv apart to look at the color wheel. I figure it had to be spinning to get the picture but the wheel was broken off or something. Well, that was the case. the glass part was shattered. I am ordering a color wheel but, my question is,
1. Do you think there maybe something blocking the lens to cause the shadow?
2. Do you think the ballast is going out also?
3. What can be causing the flashing?
Will replacing the color wheel solve all of these issues?
