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

1 Answer

I believe my lamp is gone. My tv goes on for like 2-3 minutes (no picture just sound) lamp is flashing from start and after a couple of minutes it shuts off and all 3 LED are blinking Is this the lamp for sure? Its clear that lamp is not powering up but many things could go wrong like the ballast or fuses if any. I am an electronic tech but I dont fix TVs if anyone could give me some instructions to troubleshoot and fix my tv will greatly apreciate it. I downloaded the service manual for this tv and am going thru it. Thanks in advance

HI MIKE,

Well we need to have in mind that a generic lamp will give you 3500 to 4500 lamp hours and the Phillips will give you 6000 to 8000 lamp hours ,The lamp itself typically uses AC current and about 15,000 volts to ignite the lamp's mercury vapor gas. The gases inside the lamp react when electricity charges up the mercury gas creating very bright light. The voltage drops to keep the flow of electricity to the lamp.
The symptom of a bad ballast is that you could hear a constant CLICKING or electrical BUZZING sound,my recomendation is to take out the lamp to physically check for any sings,(shatter fillement,black or grey spots in the fillement or smoke ) you can get good deals at http://www.discount-merchant.com/?click=52978
Please keep us posted,

Hard to get started when powering up to watch.


definitely, something wrong with it. TV shouldn't take more then a few seconds to start, I suggest, while it still under warranty, give Sharp a call to get it fixed.

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash


If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com just leave them a email they respond quickly.

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
