Question about Samsung HLP6163W 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
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!
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..
