Samsung 61' DLP Color problem.

The color on my Samsung 61' HD DLP is faded. No blue color. Reds and greens are present. It is about 6 years old. Is this a lamp or color wheel problem?

    Thanks FIXYA!,
    I just read where someone suggested I check the cable connections. The problem was solved by simply unplugging and reinserting the blue color cable on the back of my cable box.
    A two minute and $0 solution.
    Thanks for offering this site.

If you are using Component inputs, check to make sure that the Blue Video Cable has not backed out of its connecting jack at either end or the cable it's self being bad. If you are using HDMI I would suspect that the Digital Board being bad. It would be odd for the Color Wheel to cause the problem but cannot eliminate it as a cause. The Lamp would cause the picture to be darker but not cause a color to drop out.
I would call a professional to trouble shoot it unless you have the knowledge and the tools to do so.
Hope this helps,

I installed a new color wheel in my 6167w 61 inch hdtv. Now my colors are all messed up. Like the reds and blues are backwards.


You must go into service mode and re-align the registers, if you've never done this you must call a qualified svc center. Most color wheel replacements require re-alignment. The DLP must match the speed of the color wheel.

Color of the picture is faded/green


Hello Jdillon917,

I understand what you are saying, however the devil is in the details in reference to your problem. Let me explain, DLP Televisions use what is called "Color Wheel Technology". A wheel made up of primary and secondary colors spin at a synchronized rate with the Luminance Video signal and this along with the changing of the mirrors of the DLP processor creates the color that you see on the screen (This is a high level description, but it covers what is happening). Now what you are experiencing can happen if the sync between the signal to the color wheel and the DLP processor is off center, if the color wheel is out of alignment, or if the signal to the DLP is drifting. The bulb "light" is working but something happened to interfere with the sync between the color wheel and the DLP processor. I would suggest getting this looked at by a DLP qualified TV technician, because of the nature of this problem. In addition I would request that you have the technician do a certified alignment after the problem is taken care of.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

What kind of connections are you using?

If component (red, green, blue) double check to make sure they are seated properly. I'm thinking it sounds like the blue one got loose.
