Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV
On my Samsung Dlp Television, HLR-6167W TV, this morning I turned the tv on and on the right side of the flat panel screen, starting at the bottom and working its way all the way to the top was a shadow. The shadow starts approx.2 inches in width at the bottom left hand side of the screen, and consistently gets wider as it moves up the same side of the tv until reaching the top left side of the tv. (The same side the shadow started from) At the top the shadow is approx. 4 or 5 inches wide. If I look at the television it looks like a small V shadowed in. I can see the picture behind the shadow. But it is a extremely dark shadow. (UNACCEPTABLY DARK) so the picture behind it is barely visible yet still there. Almost as if the tv picture fell of kilter to the right, but the pictureis still seen underneath this weird shadowed line. Impossible to burn in, I THINK, in the design that the darkness is in. Is it simply a new light bulb that needs replaced. If I pull 4 X 3 down or anything that isn't 16 X 9 its picture perfect. When the tv's off the shadow is gone, so its not on the screen itself. Please help.... Thank you.
I can't find the parts section when I go to BestBuy's websight.

The problem is with the light tunnel. It is available from the parts sections of the Best Buy website for less than $50.

I have the same problem and was told by a technician that I need to replace the light engine. Probably around $ 700.00.

If you have not replaced the lamp, that is the first thing I would do. If the lamp has been replaced, the colorwheel is the next culprit. Hope this helps
