No picture or sound

No pic or sound. cycles on /off 3 times then goes to standby mode.makes whining noise and lamp not coming on. replaced color wheel assembly, still no pic or sound and cycles on/off but whining has quit. lamp still off and tried 2 other lamps still same problems. tested power to ballast( brown and blue wires in 2 pin connector) 468vdc. tested voltage out of ballast to lamp, no voltage found. tested what looks to be overload above color wheel for continuity and it tested good. is 468vdc to high to ballast and fried it? small connector with small ribbon cable that goes from ballast to main control board-what is its purpose? control ballast to power lamp?

    look i have considerable knowledge with electronics and wacking or hitting it with my fist is not what i consider a solution. i also dont get where you consider it to be an intermittent problem.

  • bryant phillips Jan 29, 2008

    again as stated before i have tried 2 other lamps

  • bryant phillips Jan 29, 2008

    i know about the switch on the metal support leg and it is taped to provide operation and all 3 fans are working.

Hi,

The symmptom you explained is typical of an intermittent problem. These are caused by a loose wire or connection or a cold solder joint.

Try just whacking the cabinet with some considerable force using the fist.

If you can get some restoration of function then it is clearly one of these culprits: They are hard to find but cheap to fix when you find them.

In fact, often the best fix is to find a pressure point that restore functionality and apply a shim or insert somewhere that will keep it going reliably.

A good way to find out where the intermittent condition is coming from is to:

ONE: Remove the back cover so you can get inside the big board.

TWO: Place a mirror so that you can see what is going on with the screen while you are in the back probing around.

THREE: Acquire a long wooden dowell rod from the hardware store (it must be non-conductive) and use it for a probe.

FOUR: Gently probe around by applying pressure in different places until you can locate the sensitive area.

FIVE: Decide what the best thing for a fix might be.

OR, let me know the outcome and I can advise further once you have successfully completed the task at hand.

Goodluck..

Start by cleaning and checking the fans. When the back is off there is a safety switch that has to be taped in order to power the set and check the fan operation. If you need parts:

Beyond that, there was a guy selling DMD boards

I have a humming noise coming from my 5 year old samsung 50 inch dlp tv , I have replaced the lamp 6 months ago so what else couyld the noise be coming from? I have a great picture and color.


If it is a high pitched whine it is most likely the color wheel; the bearings in the wheel go bad and if you google the model number with color wheel you will find it.

The whine is the early stages of the wheel failing; when it goes out you will either have shutdown or a grinding sound.

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help.

Samsung dlp hls6186w, picture has darkened, could it be the lamp or is it the colour wheel??... tv is making sounds...I thought it was the fan, the fan looks okay??? It also shuts down once and a while...


The lamp is the only thing that will cause the picture to go darker. According to the model you have the lamp part number is BP96-01472A. The noise you hear could possibly be the color wheel itself. The way to tell is when you turn off the TV the lamp stays on for about 10 seconds longer. Once the lamp shuts off if that noise goes away then it is a bad color wheel. Any noises past that would be a fan. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

Sounds like a bad color wheel. Generally when the color wheel goes bad, when you try and turn the TV on the lamp will ignite for a couple seconds and then turn off. It also makes a rather high pitch squealing noise.

www.Partstore.com should carry a replacement color wheel for your TV

RCA HD61LPW42 - no picture


I haven't worked on an RCA DLP but have on Samsung DLP, based on your description it sounds like the color wheel is bad. Take the back off and turn on TV make sure its not a fan making the noise ,but most likely its the "wheel" it is inside the light engine probably right next to where the lamp is plugged in. If the whine comes from this area definitely the wheel.

You better to check the color wheel or Lamp ballast.

3 blinking lights and no picture


The whine or squealing you hear is either the color wheel or fan. To determine which, when the noise is heard from the set, turn it off and listen carefully. If squealing stops immediately then Tthe fault is the color wheel, not the fan. And sounds like that are generally the color wheel. A new color wheel is Samsung p/n# BP96-00250A for this model. Vance Baldwin carries them for $97.20 plus shipping. https://www.vancebaldwin.com Logon as guest, select parts and copy past the above part number in without any dashes. Good luck... Bill
