Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

56 inch Samsung TV

When facing the TV I see aline about 2 inches wide (OR LESS) shadow. Only when the TV is on. I just had the lamp and ballast replaced because the TV kept shutting down. $576.00 later I am now experiencing this new problem.
CALLING SAMSUNG CUSTOMER SERVICE IS A WASTE OF TIME.
Any suggestion?

This shadow is called by the light tunnel in your optical engine. You can have someone come out and try to fix the light engine. I am an authorized samsung tech and about 80 percent of the time I can rebuild the light tunnel. If the tech can not fix the light tunnel you would have to have the optical engine replaced. The light tunnel is something you would not want to attempt yourself. At least you can explain to a shop what your problem is..if they have not heard of this call a diffrent shop.

Dark shadow about 4'' at top of screen of 56'' dlp samsung hlr5667


There is a piece connected to the color wheel assembly called a light tunnel. It is between the color wheel and optic assembly. There is 4 mirrors inside. One of them probably got dislodged when the wheel shattered. Sometimes they can be repaired using high temp glue or you may have to replace the tunnel.

Optoma RD-50 DLP has dark vertical shadow on right side of screen


turning off the main can be very harmful to rear projectors if you dont wait for the cooling off period, for instance when you turn off the tv from the remote, the fans inside are still on in order to dissipate the heat given out by the lamp. as a result some of the lens inside the engine may have burns-in caused by excess of heat.thus leading to shadows on the screen.

hope this helps

please rate me!

Samsung dlp tv


Yes, it could. There is a light pipe in the light path that could now be broken from the bumping or it could just be out of line from the bumping. Another problem could be the mirrors in the projection path could just need adjusted by the 3 screws that are beside the mirrors. This may also happen when bumped.

Two inch shadow on tv


Change the input to AV1 or AV2 with no signal and see if it's still there, if it is you might have a defective light engine in which a lot of manufacturers will warranty. This can be repaired in the home but some shops preferr to take them in, try for the in home co's first. Just a word to the wise, DLP's do not last as long as you may want.

Replaced lamp still not working


Power issues (Tv True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
