Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

I have a DLP Samsung HL-R6167w and it's not working

I have a SAMSUNG DLP model HLR6167w with a problem. I just changed the light hoping this would fix the problem. When the problem first occurred, I could barely make out the picture, and it was very green and jumpy (but I could still see spider man on TV with the 5 big vertical lines). I called tech supportand they said unplug the TV and plug it in after about 5 minutes. I did that and now it went from bad to worse. No picture at all. I have whiteand black static on the screen that also has a green tint. I have 5vertical evenly spaced lines. I can put the TV on air-antenna, Satelite, DVD, NindendoWii, and the greenish static follows all components. When I hit "menu"on the TV remote, all menu options are crystal clear. Set-up, channel,sound, etc...all perfect picture...Just a problem with the actualpicture on all components. I turned it on again last night and I found more details. The attached picture is what it looks like when it's on. It looks like that for 15 seconds then freezes. When it freezes I can't turn the TV off/on nor navigate through the TV's menu (it freezes also) Then the screen goes black like it's turned off. I look at the back of the TV and the light bulb seems to still be on. PLEASE HELP email me at surfw77@hotmail.com if you know how to fix this problem. My menu's freeze and I have the green static.. BUT the picture is perfectly clear when I use my my HDMI input for my dvd player. It's only the cable/TV mode with the problem

    You need to do an aggressive reset on the TV. This solved problem completely for me. You must unplug the TV when it is on. Repeat this several times until the TV is jolted back into the factory default settings. The issue is actually with the programming I believe. The clue was that the display worked 100% perfect in HDMI mode, and the problem only existed in the cable setting, no matter if wires were attached or not.

    Again, do an aggressive reset to the TV by unplugging it several times while it is on. It may not register the reset at first because after all, the actual problem is a programming issue and it's having trouble recognizing commands in the first place.

    Good luck!!

    The only solution I have found is to unplug the TV and plug it back in 1-5 times to reset it back to the normal settings, then it works fine. Is this bad for the TV? I've heard it may make the bulb pop or cause some type of power overload maybe, is that true? Is it OK if I just unplug the TV like this before I turn it on to begin with? Is that less risky for making the bulb pop etc. It also fixes it this way if I just unplug it a few times before I start the TV up.

Samsung DLP HL-R6167W - works fine for about 5 seconds then the screen freezes, sound goes out and then goes black then comes back on by itself and repeats the whole process. No blinking error lights.


There are three possible parts causing the problem. First, the Main or Digital bd is bad, Second, the DMD bd is bad. Third the Color Wheel is bad. You need a trained Samsung tech to have a look at it.

Samsung Model HLR6167W


Does the TV appear to be cycling on and off, like its attempting to boot up? Or, does it just not come on at all? Don't miss the lamp door interlock switch. Many Samsung DLPs have tempermental door switches. Try re-installing the door or manually hold the switch in the closed postion and try to power it up. If the lamp comes on and stays lit, you've found your problem.
