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.

3 problems 1. TV shuts off and on automatically. 2. 2 inch band on left side of screen 3. No picture at all


The band or shadow on the left side of the screen definitely sounds like a defective light tunnel.As for the intermittent pix and shut down this could be the lamp if you have not already changed it.

Samsung tv turning off by itself


I had a similar problem where my 61" Samsung DLP was turning itself off very frequently I had resolved to try replacing the bulb. I called a local TV repair place to see if they had my buld in stock. The guy I spoke to actually told me how to fix my problem! There is a little blue switch behind the bulb access door. The inside of the door has a little piece that presses the switch down. The switch is supposed to work correctly weather the switch is in the up or down position but samsung forgot to take expansion from heat into account. If the switch is held in the upper position by the door and the plastic expands to a certain point, it triggers the set to shut off. This does not occur of the switch is held in the lower position. What you need to do is take the access door off and put it back on by sliding it into position from above. That will hold the switch in the down position, eliminating the problem. My set has not **** itself off ever since.

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.
