Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung DLP HL-R6167W

ITV is three years old, using the HDMI input, sometimes my screen would turn green and if I played with the input connector on the TV it would be ok, now it appears it does not work at all. The TV says there is a HDMI input but no picture, says weak signal or lost signal. I took the DVD player into store and it works fine, I also replaced cable but still does not work. Is there something I can check or do I need to have a repair person check it out.?

Thank You

Re: Samsung DLP HL-R6167W

Try unplugging everthing first...Make sure you are using a quality hdmi cable...Reconnect everything, plug in the power cords and see if this works for you. I had the same problem with my sony blu ray dvd player and after some research and a few calls to sony and samsung this process worked for me. I was using a radio shack hdmi cable that was for some reason disrupting the transmission between the two products. Also I found out from samsung the tv needs to be off for the tv to accept this new connection. It work for and its been a few weeks now.

Most likely the digital board will have to be replaced. Not a cheap part, so you might concider using the component inputs for now if too expensive.

Samsung DLP HL-R6167W - works fine for about 5 seconds then the screen freezes, sound goes out and then goes black then comes back on by itself and repeats the whole process. No blinking error lights.

There are three possible parts causing the problem. First, the Main or Digital bd is bad, Second, the DMD bd is bad. Third the Color Wheel is bad. You need a trained Samsung tech to have a look at it.

Problem with HL-R6167W green vertical lines

You need to do an aggressive reset on the TV. This solved problem completely for me. You must unplug the TV when it is on. Repeat this several times until the TV is jolted back into the factory default settings. The issue is actually with the programming I believe. The clue was that the display worked 100% perfect in HDMI mode, and the problem only existed in the cable setting, no matter if wires were attached or not.

Again, do an aggressive reset to the TV by unplugging it several times while it is on. It may not register the reset at first because after all, the actual problem is a programming issue and it's having trouble recognizing commands in the first place.

Good luck!!

2 year old Samsung 50" DLP

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
