Question about Samsung HL-P6163W 61" TV
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
