You should listen for a strike noise at the lamp or ballast area, 1 strike for each cycle. A weak lamp will take more strikes to start, until one day it never starts.

Samsung hlp6163w dlp tv not working, new lamp, new ballast, still three blinking lights


If color wheel does not run lamp will not fire----with lamp removed have you looked at the wheel----if not running it will cause almost instant shutdown of lamp and the set.

If the DMD board is bad time for a new set as it is well over 500 .

Hi,
You may have two problems with your TV. This TV has a history of a color wheel issue, was making grinding noise? Have you ever changed the lamp?
It may be a bad color wheel and the lamp, you may want to do a visual inspection.
It is easy to replace the lamp but more likely the color wheel is the problem.
The part# for the color wheel is 212184, the part# for the lamp is 260962

Best of luck

Your lamp door switch or lamp switch (there are 2) may not be fully engaged or one may have failed. Try seating the lamp again, you may not have it fully installed.

Tv no picture makes sound like cricket three times, green light on then shuts down and lamp light comes on, most of the time but sometimes just shuts down completely


lamp light flashing? possibly going out and needs replacing. google search the model number and lamp replacement, you might get lucky and find a replacement. around $250.

you may check your lamp first. other than that i would say a faulty mains board.

My RCA is screeching


To install the color wheel, turn off and unplug the tv, take off the lower back casing (17 star type screws), remove the lamp door, remove the lower back casing. Look just left of the lamp you will see 3 smaller star type screws near a small circuit board (which is on the color wheel), remove those screws unplug cable from color wheel, unplug other end of 2nd cable from tv circuit board (just to the upper left nearest to the color wheel.

All you have to do is install the color wheel, plug in both cables, put the back on and place the lamp door back in its position, the lamp door pushes in a lillte blue lever which allows the lamp bulb to light up.

I'm in the process of doing the same myself on my RCA same model. Where did you buy the color wheel from?
