Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

No picture or sound after replacing lamp

Lamp needed replacement.  Changed lamp and TV still does not work.  No picture or sound, just a buzzing noise.  When on button is pushed the TV acts as if it is going to start up but only buzzes and makes a squealing noise.  After it tries to start up and doesn't happen, then it sounds like it tries to shut itself off and then tries starting back up again.  This continues for a minute or so and then finally does shut itself off showing all three lights again (timer, power, standby/high temp).

Re: No picture or sound after replacing lamp

Possible bad color wheel...

Pull the lamp out & look inside where the lamp sends the light-

does the color wheel look defective? If so,replace it.

Or, the lamp ballast may be bad.After that,usually replace

complete engine.

We have sound and a blue screen with no picture

Your ballast might not be able to light up your lamp. Do you hear a clicking, buzzing? this can be an indicator that your ballast is too weak to light up the lamp. this board will need to be replaced at some point of your tv's life.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise

First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

Mitsubishi WD-65733 no picture, electrical buzzes in series

What it sound's like is that the lamp ballast is the problem. Buzzing sounds like when the power is first brought to the ballast it has to ramp up the voltage to get the lamp to light, then the voltage drops back down when the lamp is lit. Sounds like the lamp ballast isn't ramping up the voltage the way it should. May have to replace it. A good service shop would be able to do this for you.

HLP5067W Going on and off

Sounds like the bulb needs to be replaced. With the tv you have the Bulb last about 6000-8000 hours. If you think that is about right then you it most likely is time ro replace. You should be able to find the replacement bulb from the manufacture and then find it online to purchase.

Loud Buzzing Sound

since you changed the lamp my next thought is that the color wheel has failed,,,most good road techs can replace it in the home..the cost would be between 220.00 and 350,00 depending on the company...
