Question about Samsung HLN567W 56" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

HLN567w-won't start amongst other things

-Turns off by itself, won't start,but you have sound. High squeeling noise from color wheel. Unit freezes up, sound continues correctly, but screen is frozen-black/white pixelization-like photo negative. Won't turn off, when this happens, unless you unplug.


parts replaced and outcome- Lamp and color wheel- Unit is quiet, but still doesn't start up every time, and shuts off on it's own and does the freeze up thing. Worked this way for about 2 weeks, shut off, reset etc. absolutely ridiculous. switched back to the old bulb, worked the same, so my guess is their both good and something else is bad. won't start at all, get the chime, but lamp never comes on, and you get 3 blinking lights. I'm not hearing the color wheel at all, I could hear it, faintly, for the 2 weeks that it kind of worked. Please help if you can.

    Anybody out there still trying to figure out this whole Samsung DLP fiasco, or have we all been beaten down long enough, to give up. Obviously, this technology isn't repairable. Everybody's chasing the next part, with a very low success rate. If they(Samsung) knew what the fix was, they would be shouting it from the mountaintop. They have no answer, except that we blew a bunch of money, on something that, to them, is disposable. I'll keep trying to find the solution.

Replace colour wheel because of a high pitch noise, now the TV comes on and shuts off right away. Any ideals, the balast and lamp are fine. Bill

If you had a pix before just a niosy color wheel then I would double check and make sure you have the right one for that engine. Next, re check all your connections. I hope you have the lamp door in place?

If you hear a squeeling noise, then that would be your color wheel. When you replaced the lamp, did you reset the lamp hours? Did you check the power from ballast with a voltmeter to see if you are getting power to the lamp?

Horrible noise

it is the color wheel i have a similar problem and am looking for the part, the color wheel is a small electric motor that spins at a high speed and it can go bad. which will lead to the horrible squeel/hum/buzz.
