Samsung HLP6163WX/XAA DLP HDTV - lamp and noise issues

I own a Samsung HLP6163WX/XAA DLP HDTV. I replaced the color wheel and the lamp just recently (two months ago). Color is good. Brightness is good. But now when I turn on the TV, it not only takes a LONG time to turn on, but there's a lot of clicking, and a strange high-pitched noise that decreases in pitch - it sounds like that noise you here in a cartoon just before a bomb splats to the ground! I really don't know how else to explain it. And the high-pitched sound will start over several times. Many times, I have to power on the TV again and again before the lamp finally powers up and the TV turns on. I'll also see the two green and one red light on the front of the TV blinking. All connections look good inside and out. Does the ballast need to be replaced? I'm not sure and out of ideas. And I want to know what that strange high-pitched noise is! Is doesn't sound like something spinning up... it sounds like something spinning down. Help is appreciated!

Hello:
Replace the color wheel again, its gone bad again. the clicking is the ballast trying to fire the lamp. The Ballast will not fire the lamp until the color wheel has reported it has reached an RPM of around 9000rpm. This is a normal sound. Most of the time the color wheel will make a loud whining sound when bearings go bad, sounds like a Airplane using reverse thrusters when landing and a even louder sound when it shatters in the housing. Also the reason it may of gone bad so soon is because they make to versions of this color wheel, Bearing type and the Air type. I don't know who installed your color wheel, but it should of came with a small tag or paper of some sort with numbers on it. Most people throw this away when it is very important to let the unit know which type of wheel is being installed to set the parameters for either type of wheel. Most people who install colors wheels themselves to save money do not know this, and the only way to install the new settings is thru the Factory Service Mode. There are also color parameters to input for the type of wheel being used.

This is your basic Color wheel 101..
Hope I gave you some insite of what may of caused your problem...Please leave comment if more info is needed..Lavell

If using a cable or sat box try a DVD etc when set cold, a box can cause lockup issues via signal.

Not a color wheel is correct, more likely a DMD which is rather pricy and almost as much as the entire light engine which comes with it.

Sounds likea bad color wheel to me, or possibly a lamp has blown. If the noise is a humming sound--it is the CW--if you hear a "sound like a sizzle, for a few seconds and then normal, and this repeats a few times--the lamp has blown.

The lamp ballast or Color wheel might be the problem. We have experienced both issues with the tv shutting down. Also check the hours on your lamp as it might be getting old.

Hi, you have one of two problems, either the color wheel is going or one of the cooling fans are going, the color wheels are a very common problem in samsung dlp`s, sorry I can`t nail it to a specific part but I`d bet it`s the color wheel as they are notorious for failing in samsungs, video-tek
