Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

Samsung HLR6167 - picture freezes

My 2 yr old TV will freeze the picture after a few minutes (still image appears), sounds continues a couple minutes, then I lose the still picture and sound. Can't power on/off. If I unplug the TV for awhile, I can eventually get a few minutes of image/sound, then it freezes again.

I looked at the lamp and door - seem fine.

Suggestions ?

This is very common in Samsung DLPs. The DMD board is going bad. You will need to replace it.

TV not recognizing that any source inputs are plugged in.

Check your installation: it looks like you didn't put every connector properly. If that doesn't help replace mainboard in the store: may be it's faulty.

Sounds like a bad digital board to me. Not too hard to replace in those models but, you do have to write down a few settings before replacing it. These settings are available in the service menu. Any questions let me know
