HL-r6167w wont start up (HELP)

I Changed the lamp and TV still does not work. No picture nor sound, just a buzzing noise. When i press the on button the TV acts as if it is going to start up but only buzzes and makes a squealing noise. After it tries to start up and doesn't happen, then it sounds like it tries to shut itself off and then tries starting back up again. This continues for a minute or so and then finally does shut itself off showing all three lights again (timer, power, standby/high temp). i took out the light and the lamp ballast and turned on the tv and i still acts as if it is going to start up. It still makes The buzzing an squealing noise. Spent so much money on this TV can someone give me a solution...thank you

Check its lamp ballast board. The buzzing sound can be due to loose ferrite core of the transformer on it. Electro help

Hello, the "buzzing" sound could be from a broken lamp, or the bearing in the color wheel. First pull out the lamp and inspect it, if it look like it's not broken inside or looking burnt, it may be the color wheel.....tks

TV makes humming noise, lamp light is blinking, does not turn on

Your color wheel needs to be changed. Mine just did the same thing. I changed mine, and the buzzing sound went away, however now my picture washes out with light or yellow colors. The darks look green and purple also.

Projection tv has really loud buzz or hum

You may not see any deterioration in the picture when the color wheel begins to go bad. The noise will get louder and eventually, it will shut down or the wheel will shatter while the motor continues to spin. If that happens, you'll have a black and white picture.

If its a Samsung DLP that is mercury vapor lamp driven, its a safe bet the color wheel is going bad.
