Re: hls6186w dlp shuts off
After you turn the set on and then it goes off if your lose the noise as soon as the picture leaves you likely need a light engine. If the noise is there a second or two after the pciture leaves you have a bad color wheel.

Don't know if this applys to you but if you have purchased anything but Osram or Philips replacement lamp for your DLP tv then this is probably your problem.. The generic is VERY tempting in this recession but in this case generic is poison to your dlp tv... i have a Mitsubishi 60735 and went thru 2 generic bulbs when my tv kept shutting down on it's own and the lights on front would flash, i could cut it back on for 10 minutes then flicker and shut down again ..well since the bulb was new i thought it may be defective so i got is exchanged for another one ... after all of the post i have seen how much repairs were going to cost on dlp sets no matter what the problem was ..i was ready to chunk the tv out the door when the second lamp was doing the same thing.....!! well a last ditch effort to save my tv before i trashed it or taking it apart to dissect it.. was to buy a brandname lamp ... in my case i purchased a Philips ..it cost twice as much =/ ..i could just return it if it didn't work.. well it was the generic lamps that was causing trouble.. the brandname worked perfectly .. i am just glad the generic lamp didn't do any damage to my TV!!! I have done further research on the generic lamps and realized that the damage it could have done was not worth the money i saved when i purchesed it... Generic is a great deal In some cases (household cleaners, etc..) but in this case GET THE NAME BRAND!!!! the only name brands i know of for these lamps are Philips or Osram/Sylvania.. hope this helps others from this headache. Do your research don't by generic lamp replacements, your DLP set cost to much to risk it.
I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!
My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?
Im not sure what brand you are inquiring about. My Hitachi 50v715 DLP did the same thing and it turned out to be the Lamp was going out. I bought a new original hitachi lamp(phillips) and put it in and it works great. So if your lamp has not been changed out in a couple of years then its probably time. Hope this is helpful.
changing the bulb isnt going to help. the t.v. is just one big disaster so you might as well rip someone else off just like vivitek has done to all of us. if the new owners tell you theres a problem with the t.v. tell them they must have messed it up during transportation. Thats what vivtek told us. =D
it should still be under warranty ,id check on the warranty info and see if they can repair the tv or yake it to a reputable repaiman to have it done.a normal warranty runs for a year from date of purchase
