Question about Samsung HLM617W 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Hlm617w issue I bought this set new in '03. I have since replaced the color wheel and gone through a few bulbs. Recently, after turning on the set, I got mostly darkness except in a few areas of the screen where the image was trying to come through. Then nothing except a few horizontal green lines. After awhile I got the 3 flashing led's on the front. Just put in a new bulb with no improvement. The set will now just blink the middle led and show a couple green lines. I have to unplug to shut off.

Replaced the balast, tv not longer turns on and off but now it has a kind of pulsing picture. Am I looking at a new bulb? a new color wheel ? or some other surprise that I haven't heard about?


Lamp is possible especially if the ballast was bad--it powers the lamp.
Color wheel will usually display some issues--high pitched whine or fan like noise---with the lamp removed look where it faces--color wheel is there--any broken or missing pieces and it is the problem---

The wheel is directly connected to the set---set will detect if wheel not moving or moving too slow etc and almost instantly turn the lamp OFF.

Samsung dlp tv will power on then shortly after I have three lights flashing and it shuts off with lights still flashing, this happened back in april, I replaced the bulb and now its doing it again....


This is a suggestion and not a solution to your problem.

I would watch from the side or rear while someone tries to turn the set on: Does the lamp light even for a few seconds?

Second: I would also with set unplugged remove lamp cartridge and look at the color wheel: is it intact and not shattered?

The color wheel can make a high pitched or fan like sounds before it fails.

If after you examine the color wheel you find pieces are gone etc it is your problem and not the lamp; it faces the lamp and if you look carefully you should be able to see if it is intact; I attach a photo of it for you.

Before you rate this information let me know what you find or if you have questions.

Make sure every input does that too. If not, you probably have a bad hook up from the device or the T.V. If not, it's probably your color wheel or DMB board.

ballast failures are not that common in general. i would suspect the color wheel before the ballast. do you hear a whirring noise when the tv is trying to turn on. sometimes the color wheel will not spin correctly and the tv will not start as a result.

I think you have a colorwheel with bearings that are noisy and theres no telling how long it will last . Could be days or years, just noisy. But a colorwheel will not cause a picture to freeze. Sounds like two problems- a questionable colorwheel and a failing dmd board .
Most likely your problem is on the DMD Assy Board P/N BP96-00249A . More presicely there is a few bad electronic components on that board that are bad. That board can be repaired by replacing the bad components (and the other few compoonents that are probly going bad and will soon cause your tv to lockup and lose remote and button functions when it fails so you will need to unplug it to get it on again).
Or the DMD board can be replaced .But it is not a cheap board.
For removal and Installation of the DMD board I would reccomend a tv service person because it is in the heart of the television and there are some adjustements to be made when the new board is installed.
To get the new board you could probably find it by just gooogling the part number.
Component level repair would require some experience in desoldering and soldering SMT,SMD , and or surface mount components.The actual components are about $15.00 total so just repairing your board should cost about $125.00 by a qualified servicer (if you were to remove and install it yourself). This DMD board is used in many models and can has few common problems.
HLM437W HLM4365W HLM5065W HLM507W HLM617W HLN437W HLN4365W HLN467W HLN507W HLN50665W HLN567W HLN617W ( L2 and L5 chassis )
SYMPTOMS:
-Intermittant picture freezing with a negative looking B/W frozen picture.
-Intermittant loss of pic with/without shutdown
-abnormal color wheel noise if attempted to start right after shutdown.
-lockup of tv control functions . Remote and front keypad do nothing , TV must be unplugged to reset .
-horizantal tearing, distortion , flippnig , solarization , red picture, leading to blank screen and lockup.(tv menu would be affected by all picture defects if caused by DMD board).
Hope this helps someone..

How long does a lamp/bulb of a Toshiba DLP 46HM95 46 in last?


Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.
