Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

The TV has a black spot on the screen, apparently a pixel loss.

My Samsung 61" HLN617W DLP TV has just recently acquired a black spot on the screen. Apparently a single pixel loss. I was wondering what caused this, If I can expect it to be repeating and what is the remedy. I have had no problems with it prior to this and have not yet had to change the bulb.

Your symptoms sounds like a one of the mirrors on your imaging chip is not working.

There is not a lot you can do about the pixel being out unless you want to replace the imager circuit board. These are expensive to replace.

As far as more showing up in the future, it is hard to say, you may not get anymore failing

Is it possible to have only the red tint projector lamp replaced on 61" projector Samsung tv


No. This is a DLP TV. It gets it's color by a color wheel. If color seems to drift across screen or there is a loud-ish whining noise from back of TV that you can here clear across a room, then this color wheel may be bad. They wear out.

Small white spots appearing on T.V. screen.


The DLP chip is failing and will have to be replaced. Samsung is covering the cost of repair for this problem on SOME models. You can call 1-800-samsung to find out if your unit is covered or to find the nearest service center.

Samsung dlp hln617w aging pattern problem


I am actually having the same problem. I just reciently installed a new bulb and messing around in the service menus, and ended up with the same problem. I found that if if in the same menu the aging pattern was in, I think it was the last menu, and click on the EW RESET, let the TV reset and that should fix your problem.
