Question about Samsung HL-R6168W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Samsung HLR6168W DLP that intermittently shuts itself down,the sound stops, the picture disappears, the screen goes dark but not completely off. A few moments later the picture returns, but no sound. None of the controls work when this occurs. I will not even power off. I have to unplug. When I plug back in again, the lamp light begins to flash without me powering on, then the picture returns, but still no sound. If I wait 24 hours the set seems to "reboot" properly and work normally for a day or so. What's wrong?

PICTURE STOPS & DETERIORATES THEN GOES BLACK. WHEN I TURN SET OFF I GET A WHINING SOUND (FAN?) FOR 20 SEC. & THEN SET TURNS OFF


The sound comes from the color wheel and not a fan,common to samsung dlp tv's which can be the cause of the shut down.

Samsung DLP HLR5668W has mostly dark picture + grinding noise


Pix looks like a light pipe issue, inside the Light Engine. as far as the shutting down, could be a bad fan causing the grinding and when stopps the DMD turns the set off.
