Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

2 year old Samsung 50" DLP

The srcreen freezes...goes blank. takes about 5 seconds...then goes back to normal. The sound also gets cut off as well during this "reset" Time. the screen freezing happens every 10 minutes...sometimes less. I am using HDMI input for Direct TV. When I change inputs (component video) i get a snowy green screen.

If I unplug the TV, it will work fine...no freezing screen or green snow but that will only last about an hour.

Sounds like a bad digital board to me. Not too hard to replace in those models but, you do have to write down a few settings before replacing it. These settings are available in the service menu. Any questions let me know tvtek@msn.com

The lamp is usually your first replacement, but a freeze in picture may have to do with the video board or the DMD board. Try the lamp first and see if that fixes it--because you'll need a new one anyway if you're going to keep the television. Make sure to get an OEM Philips lamp for your Sammy. Buy from an authorized distributor.

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.
