Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

I have sound, but no picture

Yesterday the picture on my tv went out. When I turn it on I get the power on jingle & sound from the cable, but the picture won't come up. The tv powers itself off, then back on again........as if it's trying to bring the picture up. Eventually the tv powers itself off all together. I'm not sure what to do at this point. If it's even worth trying to fix or just shop around for something else.

I am finding a lot of people's lamps are going out. This maybe your problem too judging from what I have read above.

There are replacement lamps. They used to be pretty expensive but they are somewhat reasonable now. Below is a site you can order a new lamp this should fix the problem.

But before you order make sure that all the cables in the back of the television are in the right order. Red and White are audio while Yellow is video. A lot of people are unable to distinguish the yellow from the white.

If you have the other cables such as the blue and the black make sure the blue is with blue and black is with black. They are hard to see sometimes in a poorly lit area like behind a TV.

If everything is hooked up correctly.

Your next bet is the lamp replacement. Replacing the lamp its quite easy to do. Just remember to reset the TV lamp timer. Consulting your owners manual should help.

Here is the site for lamp replacements. You also can do your own search for lamp replacement.

The way i analyze it, your tv has power supply problems, generally the problem needs to be inpected by a trained service personnel. so dont ever try to open it and try to fix it. its better call one up.

The actual tv will no show a screen, but you can


if theres power its more likely your picture tube went out or blowed & will have to be replaced or repair. If there is there sound other than the power like static or normal sound. then it's definely the picture tube but if theres nothing but juice & its a newer model tv its a problem with the fan or lamp
