Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Turns off afte a few seconds

We have already replaced a lamp about a year ago and we have replaced the colorwheel and fan as well. I think it may be the lamp again but I am not sure. When we turn the tv on we can hear the sound but no picture...it stays on for about 5 to 10 seconds and then turns off.

Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.

Will not turn on, red light flashing next to the menu button


if the fans don't turn on, they may be bad and needs replacing or rewired. if the fans turn on but not the lamp, the colorwheel may be bad (listen for a high-pitched whir when you switch it on. if no whir, replace the colorwheel). if the colorwheel is ok, replace the lamp.

the lamp may have overheated. check it for bulges, black spots or fogging. replace it if you have any of those. since the lamp uses vaporized mercury, the only way to test it is in another projector. it may also be the colorwheel or the fans. if all of the fans are running and the colorwheel spins up, it may be the ballast. you could send it in to a sharp service center for repair. if you chose to, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

I got a free sharp notevision PG-m20x. I plug it


if you don't hear a high-pitched whir, the colorwheel needs replacing. if you do hear it, the lamp may need replacing. if the lamp is new, there is a power supply problem.

the ballast is bad. the fan turns on for the colorwheel, but when the lamp doesn't strike, the fan and colorwheel turn off until it tries again. unfortunately, there are no replacement parts for the lp130.

may be overheating. blow out the projector with canned air. the dust keeps in the heat that the projector is trying to expell. also check the lamp for bulges and dark spots. if you have any of those, replace the lamp. if the lamp is new, check the colorwheel for a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear it, replace the colorwheel. otherwise, replace the ballast.

The lamp does not light


If your colorwheel and fans do not start spinning up, then it's not a lamp issue. The lamp will only strike if the colorwheel is already spinning. It's a safety feature to prevent burning the colorwheel. If your projector is completely dead ie no fans or colorwheel, then it's either the power supply or the controller board that has died, in that order.

Infocus projector lp70


in order for the lamp to strike and stay on, the fans and the colorwheel must be spinning and up to speed. if you remove the lamp and start it up, see if the 2 fans are spinning. and look inside to see if the colorwheel (a colored glass disk) is spinning. you'll also be able to hear a high-pitched squeal coming from it. unfortunately, you'll need to take it in to a repair center to have them replaced.

It is b.s. but it's not only samsung that have poor reliability. At least they have some customer service. Some new brands are a nightmare. I would suggest changing the ballast first, and if that doesn't do it, you're probably looking at a dmd board which is very expensive. Only other thing I can say is to try removing and reseating the lamp switch again. Also listen for the color wheel to start up a few seconds after you push power on. Color wheel is started by dmd board, lamp is driven by ballast.

Problem with INfocus LP425z Colorwheel ?????


That unit has a bearing color wheel, if it was not stored proper, it could be sticking. That would explain the power cycling. giving it a bump start if you will. Yes you can open and inspect to see if color wheel "free wheels"
