Question about Samsung HLP6163W 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Buzzing sound with volume off/mute samsung 6163

We have a buzzing sound on our Samsung DLP Hlp 6163 and cannot figure out how to get rid of it. We thought it was a fan, but it happens whether the TV is hot or cold. It continues to happen even when the TV and Cable TV Connections are muted. We have been to the Samsung site and have done their troubleshooting with cables, but still the sound is there. ANY IDEAS? Cooling fan.... bulb going bad.... color wheel... How do you know which is the problem? According to the book, all three lights flashing indicates defective bulb. But I also get a loud humming noise (fan) at times. I have already replaced the bulb once plus got a bad bulb from "Matter of fax" website with very bad customer service. I couldn't return the bulb, which didn't fit properly into guides.

It sounds like your color wheel. If you are handy at all you can change it pretty easily for the price of the part (probably around $90-$110) and a couple hours of your time. Here is a link to a video showing you the step by step process. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cx4pbNjsxfU good luck..

It is the color wheel. not an east job to do either. I'd recommend taking it to a samsung authorized service center. Job should cost around $500 or less.

Samsung hlp-5063w no picture when its on


Do you have three flashing lights on the front? You most likely have a problem with your lamp or color wheel. Those two component combined are pretty much the guts of your TV. If you are handy, you can replace those parts yourself. I have a 50" Samsung DLP and I've already replaced those to items myself. Otherwise, you can contact Samsung at 1-800-SAMSUNG and they can assist.

I bought my parts using Amazon, had them shipped to me, and took an afternoon to take about the back of the TV; documenting everything and taking photos of the progress, until it was done. There may be video tutorials on Youtube. There was for my model (HLS5086). Here is a great link to help you along. Good luck.
