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.

Guns or CRT are probably ok. Your TV needs a convergence IC STK392-120 replacement. Lamp are used on LCD and DLP rear projection TV's. Color wheel are for DLP's. :)

My Samsung DLP hln567w tv has NO picture on all


If the Lamp ignites and stays lit, but screen is completely black, not even the on screen display, then it is likely a bad DMD board.

If the lamp ignites and then turns off after a couple seconds then it is likely the color wheel is seized.

If the lamp never fires, but the TV clicks a bunch of times, then it could be a bad Ballast or the Lamp itself.

I have a 42" Samsung DLP that makes noise that sounds like it's coming from the fan. The sound starts after the TV has been on for 20-30 minutes; it's a winding type sound and continues until after the TV...


These models usually suffer from a bad color wheel. You will know that the color wheel is at fault if the sounds goes away right when the lamp shuts off. Look at the back of the set and watch for the lamp to shut down. The color wheel is not a consumer replaceable item.

RCA has discontinued the color wheel for your model and its on nationwide back order, so you cant buy the replacement. You can get your color wheel rebuilt at the following link and the rebuilt color wheels are fully guaranteed.

Blue color flowing from side and bottom into picture


Sony tech support (no charge) said it was definitely not the lamp.
Their suggestion- By unplugging the TV for a minute then turning back on, the blue color was substantially but not toally reduced.
Perhaps there is an electrical charge building up distoring the color by having the TV in the ready mode for too long and by unplugging, the charge dissipates?
No other phone solution recommended other than calling for repairs.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
