Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Samsung HLP6163wx I've had the tv for several years and no problems- now I will be watching it and for no reason the entire tv shuts off. There has been no pattern - sometimes it stays on for hours and sometimes it shuts of after just a few minutes. it always comes back on when i use the remote but what is causing it to shut down?

Have a Samsung HLP6163wx problem

Hey friend:
most probably' 1) either your lamp was NOT installed correctly, or
2) lamp is bad - (it happened to me once, so no sweat!) - in this case you need to return the lamp in exchange for a new one.
Please watch any of the 'how to change the lamp on a dlp tv' video demo available on YouTube. Its not difficult. I already changed mine 3 or 4 times. Thanks

Where are the lamps located on the samsung HLP6163wx

The lamp is on the back of the TV.
Remove the little door or the back cover to get to the lamp.
Here is the link for the video showing you how to remove the lamp.

Good luck

Samsung HLP6163WX picture shuts off.

Likely the DMD unit which is part of the light engine--if have to unplug set the microprocessor is getting scrambled and cannot operate. Common and fatal issue as to replace the light engine the cost will exceed the value of this set---DMD can be purchased alone but costs almost as much as the whole engine that comes with it.

Seen several of these sets---a shame but even at wholesale the part to fix it makes it not worth fixing.

My TV turns off by itself. It is a Samsung HlP6163W. Service Model HLP6163WX/XAA. The two green lights flash at the same time. I think it is overheating the bulb. How do I fix it.

Lamps don't really last very long typically 1 to 3 years depending. You may just need to replace the lamp. A burner gap of a lamp expands as the lamp warms up. If the gap is too large due to age (normal usage) the lamp will fail to light or shut down once the expansion occurs. The solutions to either problem is to replace the lamp.

Samsung HL-r5667w TV shuts down on its own.

You may have a colorwheel going bad. The bearings start going out and this is an indication of the failure. The colorwheel is located in the light engin e therefore you may want to get a qualified tech to look at it
