Question about Samsung HL-P6163W 61" TV

1 Answer

Have power (intermittent,,,on and off)but no

My tv looks exactly like this model but only 50" and here's my problem. Have power (intermittent,,,on and off) but no picture. Switch off and on automatically. Volume control is working but channel selector is not working. Flashing standby/Temp red light and green timer- lamp lights in the on/off switch button at the middle part of the tv. Can hear unusual low ringing sound at the back when turning power on and off.

A friend said that it could be the ballast and/or lamp and will cost me around $700 or more for both plus techs fee. If this is true, is it still worth fixing?

Hope to hear from you soon,,,thank you very much.

If this is projection tv, then you have bad lamp or ballast. If lcd probably bad IC's or you could have bad STK's which is common depending on your model. A bad power supply could also cause this. Bad capacitors on the main board will do this as well. You best bet is to get a repair manual, soldering iron and test the capacitors through out to see if there are any bad ones. Also the IC's can be bad. The newer tv's have been having alot of IC and capacitor problems due to overheating and made cheaper

I have a Samsung Model HPT5054X/XAA 50" plasma TV. the picture went black but still have audio.I purchased a reman Y sustain board.The Y buffer boards looked good. Now when I reassembled the unit,st

Did it work with the Y-sustain board replaced? Likely if it did not work then there is an issue with the capacitors on the Y-sustain board and the power board. Check these caps for failure and replace them with the exact type. Likely the caps are blown and cause voltage loss in one or both boards.

Sony bravia problems....intermittent fault. Colour turns psychedelic. Looks like TV is "on acid"!! Sometimes TV can run normally for several hours before the colour fault occurs.

You have a defective T-Con board. The small board near the top center of tv. Can not give you the part number without knowing your TV model. Depending on model $50-120 for part.

I have a 50 in lg plasma tv model num50pk540 and when i turn it on it clicks right back off then again by itself 10 sec later

Hey Patrick...i know exactly what the problem is, and if you take a look at the video i posted on youtube, then you will have a better understand why your tv is clicking... Most likely it's your voltage regulator thats damaged, and needs to be replaced. I'm also selling a power supply board on ebay now, if you're interested, so check your board's model number to make sure its the right one. email at if you have any question.and watch the video:

Hi i have problem with my Panasonic TH-42PV8EY- 7 red blinks on the start- nothing showed on the screen. After disconnecting SC board seems like it starts. Disconecting SU and SD boards dont give nothing...

I have not repaired this model. My first thought are bad capacitors in the power supply board. If you do have the exact board to replace. I would certainly do so. Numbers check and you say they are the exact same, should be an easy fix. If this board came out of another TV of the same model, you must remember, it will have the same longevity as the board that does not work. I would compare the boards, and look for bad capacitors on the board that does not work of course. You may check the capacitors with an ESR meter (about 50 to 75 bucks). The purchase and price of one of these will pay for itself. You can fix other electronics. Thanks for asking Alan. I'll be here if you have more questions.

Replacement color wheel for samsung 50'

I am having the exact same issue with the exact same TV. They no longer make that color wheel, so I am looking for a replacement part as well.

I am looking at the 01103A as well from here:

I think I might just order it, and if it doesn't work just return it.
